Lanzarote Travel Guide


Overview

Lanzarote, Canary IslandsEver wondered what it would be like to walk on the moon? Here is your chance. The lunar-like landscape is unlike any of the other Canary Islands. In fact, its hauntingly beautiful lava flows and volcanic craters could be from another planet. Unique and fascinating, Lanzarote is also bathed in year-round sunshine and blessed with glorious beaches.

Costa Teguise

Costa Teguise is the closest resort to the Island's capital of Arrecife and its excellent location, as well as fabulous beaches, make the town perfect for mixing your sun, sand, sea and water sports, with a little sightseeing - and the nearby old capital of Teguise, the most important cultural centre on the Island, should be your starting point.

Puerto del Carmen

Once a sleepy fishing village, Puerto del Carmen has grown to become the liveliest resort on Lanzarote. But as well as its long stretches of sandy beaches, and the beautifully landscaped promenade along the Avenida de la Playas - brimming with bars, discos, restaurants and shops - Puerto del Carmen also has a quieter side, where you can stroll the cobbled streets and relax in the Spanish tapas bars of the quaint Old Quarter.

Playa Blanca

On the rugged southern tip of the island Playa Blanca is a quiet, relaxing resort with a traditional, low-key feel and subdued nightlife. The beach in the original old fishing village is pretty if small, but the beautiful and secluded white sands of Playa Papagayo are only 7km to the east. The harbour is convenient for frequent boat trips that can ferry you to and from the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.

Lanzarote at a glance

What to do:

Most visitors come to relax on the soft sands and soak up the sun. The island is also ideal for gentle scenic hiking or cycling. But if you prefer your sports wet as well as active, there are plenty of ski and scuba-diving schools and the constant gentle breezes across the island's many bays are ideal for windsurfing. If all that sounds too energetic, why not settle for a cool, refreshing dip in the ocean?

Unmissable:

Venture to the north of Lanzarote for stunning natural sights that include the Cueva de los Verdes, a series of remarkable subterranean lava tunnels, and the Jameos del Agua, an exotic underground landscaped garden, designed by famous local artist Cesar Manrique. One of the island's most intriguing sights is El Golfo a lagoon whose waters seem to glow emerald green. Lanzarote's most spectacular natural wonder, though, is Timanfaya, the Mountain of Fire. Take a camel ride across the lava fields for a BBQ on the edge of its volcanic crater. But the warned, the volcano isn't extinct, it's merely sleeping.
