Holidays in
Lanzarote

An otherworldly island paradise

With rocky and wild volcanic landscapes, arriving in Lanzarote can feel a bit like landing on the moon. Look closer at its rugged slopes and you’ll see a diverse range of rich flora and fauna – so celebrated in fact that the entire island has been given protected status by Unesco. For this reason, and many more besides, Lanzarote holidays are truly special. Located a few miles west off the coast of North Africa, Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands, which enjoy balmy temperatures all year round. the island is peppered with gorgeous beaches, making it the perfect place to relax by the sea.

That said, on holidays to Lanzarote it would be a shame to miss out on the excellent scuba diving, year-round surfing and competitive cycle tours on offer. Not enough to get your heart racing? Real adrenaline seekers can whoosh through the air on a paragliding trip. If that sounds exhausting, instead spend time cycling through its picturesque vineyard-lined towns at your own pace, stopping of course to sample the local vintages. Few places in the world offer as much to see and do, so it’s no wonder that many holidaymakers return to Lanzarote time and again.

Three tips for a top trip

Get on your bike With its wide, flat asphalt roads and variety of winding tracks, cycling is a popular way to get around Lanzarote, and there are lots of bike rental shops.
See a unique sunset The view out to sea from Salinas del Janubio, Lanzarote’s mesmerising salt flats, is undeniably romantic. Watch the salt reflections turn rainbow-coloured as the sun sinks.
Grab a picnicThe Sunday farmers’ market in Teguise brims with fresh local produce. Stock up, then take a picnic to one of the many beaches or parks.

Best attractions to see in Lanzarote

Timanfaya National Park

Also known as the Montañas del Fuego (mountains of fire), this wild, lunar-like landscape has to be seen to be believed. Take a day trip and enjoy panoramic views from the restaurant.

Underwater critters

With coral reefs and shipwrecks galore, Lanzarote is a hotspot for scuba diving. Snorkellers can also spot schools of fish and underwater plant life, too.

La Cueva de los Verdes

This four-mile long series of underground lava tunnels was created during a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. Prepare to be wowed by the unusual shapes and colours.

Beaches in Lanzarote are varied and plentiful. Choose between black, volcanic sand and fine, golden grains – the best of which are arguably found on the south coast.

The Canary Islands were created by ancient volcanic eruptions, which is what makes the landscape so interesting. Don’t worry – Lanzarote’s volcano has been dormant for almost 200 years.
