The VIK Club Coral Beach might be tucked away in a quiet corner of the island, but that doesn't mean you'll be short of things to do. In fact, leisure facilities are high on the agenda here - so be sure to bring your activewear!
The complex offers a busy schedule of classes including beach volleyball, water polo, table tennis, bicycle hire and aerobics - perfect for burning off last night's sumptuous cuisine. There is also a full entertainment programme with professional shows, not to mention plenty of children's entertainment in the form of an animation team, a kids' club, playground and a mini disco, along with a dedicated pool for the little ones.
The outdoor pool is heated during the cooler months and comes well-equipped with a spacious terrace, sun loungers, parasols, towels and even its own pool bar. Not forgetting the 'Chill Out Terrace' of course. Access is available for a small additional fee (complimentary for Premium Villa guests) and features a separate relaxation area complete with sun loungers, music, and refreshing drinks.
Montaña Roja is a quiet resort that's perfect for leisurely walks and exploring the mountainous terrain on foot, or on two wheels. Bustling Playa Blanca, with its beautiful marina, boutiques and excellent seafood restaurants, is just 20-30 minutes away on foot. There's a fabulous sandy Blue Flag beach there that's well worth the walk. Or you can take the free shuttle bus from Montaña Roja which runs 3 times per week.
The capital of Lanzarote, Arrecife, is an easy 30-40 minute drive away and features plenty of great shops, bars and restaurants, not to mention historic sights, museums and galleries.
There's plenty to see further afield too. From Montaña Roja you can see the islands of Lobos and Fuerteventura, both of which can be reached by ferry. Lobos is a Nature Reserve that's uninhabited but has a small restaurant, and makes a great day trip for hikers or wildlife enthusiasts. Fuerteventura is famous for its long golden sandy beaches and low-key resorts, a lovely spot to while away a few hours in blissful tranquility.
