Beautiful town is one of Lanzarote’s most gorgeous spots and it’s ‘not crowded’

According to holiday company Holidu, Lanzarote is one of the UK’s favourite European islands. With its tropical climate and breathtaking beaches, it’s not hard to see why.

While Puerto del Carmen is the Spanish island’s leading destination, there’s another gorgeous town that British tourists won’t want to miss.

Punta Mujeres sits on the northern coast of Lanzarote and is one of the prettiest towns in the Canary Islands.

Punta Mujeres translates to “Women’s Point” and the town was named after the women who used to wait on the point for their husbands to return from fishing trips.

The town’s main attraction are its unique seawater swimming pools with gorgeous views of the coast.

‘GinkgoBiloba0’ wrote on Tripadvisor: “Beautiful! Beautiful natural pools at good temperatures and without crowds. Very small and cosy town.”

‘Jana H.G’ wrote: “A rustic, natural and wonderful place, surprising and not very crowded. It is not well known by tourists and that allows you to enjoy and bathe peacefully in the wonderful waters of Lanzarote.”

‘Biziberri’ said: “Natural pools adapted so that practically anyone can bathe. There is a more limited area where younger children can enjoy and play, the rest are small spaces to sit or lie down in the sun with stairs directly to the sea. Crystal clear and very clean water.”

After a swim, tourists can enjoy a meal at nearby Bar La Piscina, which is one of the town’s best rated restaurants and serves a range of seafood dishes.

Punta Mujeres is a little off the beaten path and there aren’t as many holiday lets as in other areas of the island but it’s easily reached on a day trip.

The gorgeous town is under 40 minutes drive from Puerto del Carmen or tourists could book a day trip with a tour operator.

Ryanair, easyJet and British Airways all operate direct flights to Lanzarote with budget options available outside of school holidays. Tourists can compare flights and book their next trip on Skyscanner.
