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.
At Arrecife's Fiesta de San Ginés, concerts and sporting events culminate in the big bang of the last night's firework display. 13 - 25 August, lanzarote.com
Visit Teguise, aka La Villa, on Sunday for Lanzarote's best and biggest market. You'll be able to buy traditional crafts in the former capital from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
