Just ten minutes outside of Puerto del Rosario driving north, is a little place called Puerto Lajas. I have often seen it from the bus, but never taken much notice. Penny & I were driving back from Rosario on Monday & as neither of us had ever been, despite the length of time we've lived here, decided we'd stop for a drink look...


What a delightful little village! Very few homes, a couple of bars, a pretty little church & probably no shops!

 Black shingle beach, lots of little boats, & rich in kite surfers! There is no promenade, only a dirt road used by both pedestrians & traffic alike.
