          The Canary Islands have been blessed with superb year round climates and a distinctive natural beauty visible in each of the islands striking landscapes. Lanzarote is a firm favourite winter and summer destination enjoying a warm, sunny climate and a good combination of restaurants, bars, sandy beaches, and visitor attractions.

          Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands only 79 miles off the North African coast measuring 37 miles long and 12 miles wide. The island has over 200 km of coastline with 25 km of beach and a dramatic landscape ranging from the volcanic mountain ranges of Famara to the desert sands of El Jable. Neighbouring islands such as La Graciosa and Fuerteventura can be easily reached by island-hopping on a local ferry or relaxing on a Catamaran cruise sailing across the blue seas of the Atlantic.

          Before tourism became the islands main source of economy, Lanzarote despite its volcanic landscape predominately earned its income through agriculture and exporting fish. The islanders have a real passion for making you feel welcome and are keen for visitors to experience the natural beauty of the country and gain a true understanding of their heritage.

          To the locals Lanzarote is known as the island of 100 volcanoes and it all began back in 1730 with one of the World’s most long-lived volcanic eruptions lasting a devastating six years. The dramatic Timanfaya National Park (Lanzarotes Fire Mountains) were once home to tiny white washed villages and a thriving agricultural area full of extensive vineyards, all washed away by hot molten lava and leaving behind today’s stark bleak landscape of volcanic debris.  The one remaining active volcano within the Timanfaya National Park last erupted in 1824 and has fast become a huge tourist attraction for the island. 

          Other "must see" attractions include the World’s longest volcanic tunnel featuring the Cueva de los Verdes (Green Caves) once a popular sanctuary for islanders escaping the natural force of the volcanic eruptions and, a perfect hideaway for  Pirates.  The much loved Jameos del Agua is possibly the most visited sight on the island. Its magical volcanic ‘grotto-like’ lagoon as well as its fantastic restaurant and bar were formed by the natural flow of the lava and then cleverly enhanced by local artist Cesar Manrique to provide a stunning and unique setting that is nowadays enjoyed by many. In recent years the addition of an underground auditorium with its amazing acoustics and ‘must-see’ concerts has made Jameos del Agua a real popular spot for visitors. 

          For those keen to indulge in some retail therapy, Arrecife has a great choice of shops and pretty tree-lined plazas providing a welcome break to sit with a traditional Canarian coffee (cortado con leche leche) and watch the world go by. Local markets are a popular weekly event with many flocking to the colourful and vibrant Sunday market of Costa Teguise, bursting with life and packed with keen shoppers in search of a bargain.

          Although there is so much to explore on the island and despite its volcanic nature there are surprisingly many sandy beaches and a plentiful array of water-sports. With the island enjoying a mid-Atlantic location, Lanzarote is a perfect and popular haven for windsurfing, diving, surfing, and fishing.

          Canarian cuisine is on the whole very similar to that of Spain with mouth-watering paellas, the freshest of fish and an abundance of tapas. Local specialities include a tasty potato dish called Papas Arrugadas accompanied by a spicy red or green ‘mojo’ sauce as well as some stunning and hearty fish or meat stews. For those keen to try out the local wine then the La Geria region is well worth a visit. There are a good number of local Bodegas where you can sample the wine before buying a bottle or two!

          The choice of  holiday accommodation is vast so, using the experience and knowledge of some of our staff who have worked on the island, we have carefully hand-picked three hotels that enjoy fabulous beach front locations, appeal to all age groups, and of course offer a high standard of accommodation and good quality service.

          Lanzarote is an exciting destination that offers so much more than just sunshine and good beaches, it is a place to be discovered, explored, and enjoyed.
