Punta Mujeres is a town in the Haria district in Lanzarote. This resort town is so small in size and inconspicuous that it can be easily missed as you make your way to other resorts. Dont be put off by its size though as there are a lot of places of interest here that you would actually love.
For one thing Punta Mujeres is situated in an area which was known for several volcanic episodes. As a matter of fact one can still see the Monte Corona volcano standing tall behind Punta Mujeres. For the most part Punta Mujeres still holds evidence of a volcanic area as you would see when you get there.
However there are beautiful spots here that would appeal to visitors. There is a small beach here but those who visit Punta Mujeres prefer plunging in the pool or to swim around in the lagoons which are man made and are great alternatives of actually being on the beach.
The pool is safe and equipped with handrails and stairs that are made of steel. Since the pool is filled with waters from the sea there are protected barriers that have been installed to control tidal surges. So when the tide turns, there is this big awash of waves which actually are spectacular to watch especially if you are at one of the nearby bars. It is definitely something that is worth seeing.
Punta Mujeres is as laid back as you can get especially when compared to other resorts that are in Lanzarote. It is one of those sleepy fishing villages where time seem to drag on and the sway of the palm trees there can really put you in a relaxed mood. Punta Mujeres is still an old fashioned Canarian town with not much of modern bells and whistles and this is just good enough with tourists.
As you drive along here you would see that there are several homes that are built close to the coastline or built overlooking the sea. Journey further along the coastline and you would see the harbour that still has remnants of an old mill.
For getting around in Punta Mujeres it is best that you rent a car than hire a taxi since the taxis can be expensive and can only hold so many people at a time. When you are here visit the Castillo de San Jose which is just over in Arrecife. This castle was erected in 1574 and it still remains as one of the biggest attractions here. This castle now contains an archaeological Museum.
Sometimes even when considering a resort to holiday in, less is more and that is exactly what you would get when you spend your next holiday in Punta Mujeres. Located in Lanzarotes Haria district, there are a few accommodations and holiday homes that have been set up to attract tourists but all and all it is still a traditional Canarian town.
Unlike other resorts which are filled with beaches galore, Punta Mujeres has a tiny beach which is definitely not for those travelling with children as the undercurrents are too strong for the young ones. But there are definitely lagoons and pools that the children can waddle in for their fair share of water fun.
When you stay in Punta Mujeres, you do so at homes and properties that have been built up by residents there which are very close to the coastline. Accommodation here consists of apartments and villas with most boasting up to three or more bedrooms, have pools and lovely terraces for amazing views.
Travelling with children? No problem. The children are well catered for with Playstation console and games to choose from and there is also satellite TV that they are sure to love. Also in these apartments are DVD players so you can bring along your favourite family movie to watch while you have some downtime here.
Even as you venture outside, Punta Mujeres is within close proximity to other towns which offer many tourist attractions including golf courses, scuba diving activities and there is an aqua park that would make the children giggle with glee. Punta Mujeres has quite a few great restaurants that offer food that would tempt and satisfy your taste buds. The restaurants here offer one the opportunity to dine indoors or in a romantic setting outdoors on the terrace.
Fish is a signature ingredient in most Canarian recipes and you would find a few fish restaurants here as a result of that. A wide variety of fish and lobsters can be enjoyed at a restaurant called The Lagoon. A few paces away you can enjoy a variety of meals at a restaurant which captures a South American ambience.
As you eat you would be entertained to a few boxing matches on the TV there or you may be serenaded by the performance of a live band. The restaurants and bars provide the closest thing to nightlife that you would experience here. Luckily the resort is close to other resorts such as Costa Teguise for instance, where there are many clubs and bars that stay open all night long.
