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.
The three Bookswops (two in Puerto del Carmen and one in Playa Blanca) offer new and second-hand English-language books. You can bring in your old books and part-exchange them for new ones or for store credit.
Lanzarote's gruelling Ironman race takes place on 18 May. The event kicks off at 7am with a 3.8km swim at Playa Grande, Puerto del Carmen, followed by a 180km bicycle race around the island and a 42km run to the finish line.
Cueva de los Verdes - this volcanic cave, once used as a refuge from marauding pirates, has been thoughtfully lit for visitors and features impressive candle-wax-like rock ceilings and a concert hall.
