Wendy has asked me to put together a number of walks that can be done close to the village plus some that are my particular favourites in the surrounding areas of Lanzarote.
If you do decide to do any of these walks please make sure you go prepared, reasonable footwear, trainers would be more than adequate, sunscreen, water and maybe a snack for the longer walks. Plus don't forget your camera.
To avoid any confusion all walks in and around Charco del Palo start at the telephone box opposite the Centro Commercial.
Welcome to Lanzarote one of seven islands that make up the archipelago of the Canary Islands. If this is your first visit to our site, then "Welcome", we hope you enjoy your first look and will check up on us every so often to see whats happening in Charco del Palo and Lanzarote. This web site is designed to help you find nude/naturist holiday accommodation in Charco del Palo and Lanzarote. Charco del Palo is situated in the north of Lanzarote just before you get to Arrieta and is probably the only village of its kind in the world where naturists come to holiday and where we, and a lot of other people live the naturist lifestyle all year round. We have no gates, no security, just drive down the road from Mala and there we are.
This is an interesting walk up to the Dam, it is relatively easy although the climb up can seem like a slog, but stick with it. Trainers or boots and don't forget the water and camera.
This walk starts at the church in Mala, this is very easy to find. Leave Charco del Palo and when you get to the T junction beside the Arepera and Don Quixote Restaurant turn right, pass the Farmacia and a further 400 metres you will see some unusual signs Blue with a figure walking down, turn left just past these and a 100mtrs further on you will come to the church. Wpt1 park you car here and continue along the roadway which soon turns into a dirt road. Cross the green bridge Wpt2 and continue straight ahead passing a couple of villas right and left. Now the hard bit begins but just take it nice and slow. Continue until you reach a large open plateau with some buildings off to the right Wpt3, follow the distinctive track across towards a large sign saying Danger!!
Just to let you know that Reiner’s Pub in Charco del Palo is now closing on a Sunday. The main holiday season for Charco del Palo is between September and Easter so as things are now beginning to slow down a little bit Reiner has decided its time for everyone to have the day off, including himself, so Sunday it is. The rest of the week the Pub opens from twelve midday till late for you to enjoy delicious lunch time snacks, including my famous burgers, freshly made omelettes and grilled sandwiches plus other bits and pieces.
Sorry to tell you this, but the Health and Beauty Salon in Centro Commercial, Charco del Palo has closed. I think she must have emptied the unit over the weekend, because she was there on Saturday. BUT……Aura Maria is now setting up her own business doing Manicures and Pedicures and she is happy to come to your home or holiday accommodation to pamper and paint your fingers and toes. Her prices are very reasonable see details below
* Manicure 10€
* Manicure & nail decoration 13€
* Pedicure with nail decoration & massage 15€
Got the winter blues? Feeling the cold? Yearning for Charco del Palo? Want to be Nude? Oh dear, you need a holiday! Its not to late to get something booked, Ok, so Easter is just around the corner and flights always increase around the public holidays, but its still worth checking the budget airlines and some of the others, you may be surprised at the prices.
So what's available at the moment? As we speak there are several apartments on the seafront prices starting from 40€ per day + cleaning fee (one days rental).
Smoking at Reiner's Pub has obviously struck a cord with many visitors to my web site, in fact far too many comments to publish. I think the subject should be closed now before it gets out of hand. I thank you all for your response to my blogs but now its time to move on to other things that affect us just as much as this one. I welcome and appreciate your comments, thank you. Wendy
A lot of visitors to Charco del Palo get caught out when it comes to paying the bill, especially when they want to pay by credit card. The only restaurant in Charco that accepts credit cards is La Tunera Restaurant. There aren’t any cash points in Charco del Palo, so if you do run out of cash or haven’t brought enough with you then your nearest option is Guatiza just a few kilometres up the road. Now this is fine if you have a car but for those who do not it means a bit of a walk up and over the hills, or an even longer walk by taking the road option. The other day some friends needed cash and they knew Alan was driving out of the village at 10am so they cadged a lift with him as far as the cash point in Guatiza, but unfortunately on this particular day the cash point was Out of Order, by the time they realised this Alan had disappeared up the road and they were stranded and still had no cash. There intention was to walk back to Charco so they weren’t bothered by this, their only concern was they still didn’t have cash to pay for the evening meal booked in The Jardin Tropical. However they did manage to get cash that afternoon at a cash point in Costa Teguise, friends they knew took them down there.
There seems to be bit of a thing at the moment about smoking in bars in Charco del Palo and Reiner’s Pub is getting most of the flack. I’m a non smoker of 30yrs and I don’t particularly want to breath someone else's smoke, but when you work in this sort of environment like I do you have to put up with it. When I choose to socialise at Reiner’s either after a busy shift or at the weekends it is my choice and therefore I accept that people are going to be smoking at the outside bar and on the terrace. In a couple of weeks the clocks go forward and with the lighter nights and
