The dramatic landscapes of Lanzarote have long been popular with overseas visitors and it isn’t hard to see why.
Volcanic in origin, Lanzarote offers stunning scenery at every turn – created during its formation millions of years ago.
Whilst the south of the island tends to be warmer and drier than the north, you can expect to enjoy warm temperatures no matter when you decide to travel, with low levels of rainfall throughout the year – as is the case across the archipelago.
The dark mountain ranges and lava fields, particularly around the Timanfaya National Park, sit alongside golden sandy beaches and calm waters that are a characteristic of the Canaries as a whole.
Within the National Park, you’ll find the only volcano remaining on the island – and can even visit a restaurant where heat from that volcano will be used to create your dish.
Away from the national park, the capital city Arrecife is home to a number of historical sites and provides ample opportunity to hit the bars, restaurants and shops, with similar entertainment options available in Puerto del Carmen, which is also the place to go if you want to experience some of the best diving available off the coast.
Expect to find hotels to suit all budgets and that are suitable for couples, friends and families alike; all of whom can make the most of the favourable weather conditions for fun-fuelled HOT Holiday in the sun.
Costa Teguise Aquapark
The Costa Teguise Aqua Park was the first on the island and features a range of waterslides that will appeal to the young and old alike. Alongside the larger slides, there is a lazy river and a special area dedicated to those youngsters heading into the water for the first time.
Book a cruise
The main harbour area in Playa Blanca is the place to go if you fancy booking a day out at sea, with the chance to head over to neighbouring Fuerteventura or to head off for some fishing. On your return, there is a range of bars and restaurants around the marina.
Home to a wide range of different species, there is also a shark tunnel that you can walk through whilst these majestic creatures from the deep swim all around you. Fun for all the family is pretty much guaranteed.
Timanfaya National Park
A short drive away from the resort, the Timanfaya National Park is well worth a visit to marvel at the stunning volcanic landscapes and to take in some of the best views across the island. You can even head for a restaurant where the food is cooked using thermal heat from underground.
Rancho Texas Park
Rancho Texas Park offers fun for all the family, with the themed resort offering the chance to take part in a range of activities to suit all ages. There’s a waterpark with a selection of slides, an animal park that is home to a wide range of different species and the chance to partake in various western themed activities – including pretending to pan for gold.
Dine in style
You'll have no problem discovering something to tempt you as there are literally hundreds of eateries to choose from across Lanzarote. The beach fronts are lined with restaurants of every description so you are sure to find something to suit your appetite.
