Cheap flights to Lanzarote
When it comes to sun-kissed beaches, fantastic seafood, pumping bars and nightclubs and spectacular otherworldly scenery there is just one word – Lanzarote.
It is the bustling resorts that make Lanzarote the popular tourist destination that it is. Resorts like Puerto del Carmen, or Costa Teguise, where you can enjoy a spot of golf in the morning, hit the beach in the afternoon, and then head out to the bars and clubs in the evening for some merrymaking.
But it’s not all about big activity-filled resorts. Those looking for something a little more low-key should check out places like bohemian La Caleta de Famara with its stunning cliffs, laid back vibe and extra legroom on the beach.
Go Karting in San Bartolome, in the sunshine and on a fabulous hill track with amazing views from the sun terrace. Great fun for all the family, with karts for all ages, as well as super-fast competition karts. Free collection from accommodation.
The second fortnight of July is when Lanzarote's coastal villages celebrate the Fiesta de Nuestra Seonara del Carmen. Locals carry the statue of the virgin draped in flowers from the church into the sea, where the priest performs a blessing-of-the-boats ceremony. Expect good food and a great party atmosphere.
While camera and electronics shops have earned themselves a bad reputation in the Canary Islands, Visanta is consistently recommended as the exception to this rule, and its prices aren't bad either (55 Avenida de las Playas, Puerto del Carmen, visanta.com/tiendas.asp).
La Graciosa is the small island off the north coast of Lanzarote and was the inspiration for the book Treasure Island. It's a paradise of empty golden sandy beaches, with no roads. Explore it on mountain bikes, on foot or take a Jeep Safari. Ferries run from Orzola.
