Title: Static caravan/chalet parks in Lanzarote ?
Post by: desdamona on August 28, 2010, 08:11:17 AM
I don't remember seeing or hearing of any on the Island. Has anybody come across one ? Maybe they are a no no with the planners,or too expensive to import them.

I don't think permanent ones are allowed, although there are always some parked on the scrap land at Playa Quemada.  There is a large site at Papagayo, which is heavily used from Easter to September, but closed in the Winter.

Thanks John, I assume these would be tourers not statics.

Yes, they are tourers....

Couldn't say why but I always wanted to own a camp site...

(Camp as in tents, not as in the Madstock definition of camp!) :)

I think some of the ones at Quemada would be difficult to move without falling apart.  Does that qualify them as tourers ???

if they did allow would make a great business having them on a private beach.. 8) 8)

Whisper,
Wow! Static caravans have come on a long way in the last 30 years (I guess they would!) since my parents owned one in northumberland and then whitby. I always remember it being cold (even in summer) and dingy tbh.
