Top Resorts

Lanzarote has plenty of day trips outside of the resorts including Timanfaya National Park with its amazing volcanic landscapes, or the fascinating lava caves at Cuerva de los Verdes and Los Jameos del Agua.

  • Puerto del Carmen has a diverse blend of old town charm and the new town’s bustling nightlife. It is a popular destination for families, and at this lively resort you can relax on the sandy beaches, try your hand at surfing in the calm waters of the local beaches, and explore the rest of the island.

  • Costa Teguise is only 20 minutes from the airport and with its excellent beaches and clear waters, snorkelling and scuba diving are very popular. There is a wide range of bars and restaurants, catering for all tastes and budgets.

  • Playa Blanca is perfect for families and couples looking for beach holidays. Lanzarote’s secluded Papagayo beaches are spectacular places to explore and the white beaches, with their shallow clear waters are flanked by the Femes mountains, making it less windy than the other coastal resorts.

Activity Holidays

Lanzarote is excellent for activity holidays, especially surfing.

Surfing Holidays

There is a reason that Lanzarote is known as the Hawaii of Europe. The surf here rivals that of any coastline, with strong winds from the Atlantic breaking onto the beaches. You will find a wide range of surf schools, catering for everyone from first timers to experienced surfers. You can also try out SUP (Stand Up Paddle) surfing, where you can explore the beautiful coast while standing on your surfboard.

Cycling

The government in Lanzarote has put together a collection of cycling routes to show off the less touristy side of the island. These Rutas de Cyclotourisme can be found in any tourist office and bike hire companies are also easy to find. There are flatter coastal routes for easy going exploration, or more challenging hilly rides. The views at the top more than make up for the effort though!

Walking

Walking and hiking are great ways of seeing the wild side of Lanzarote, from the volcanic, mountainous areas, the wooded valleys and beautiful coastline. You can take guided walks, or buy maps and make your own itineraries.

Extreme Sports

The weather and landscape in Lanzarote lend themselves perfectly to more extreme sports, such as paragliding, windsurfing and mountain biking. You can experience flying above ground and stunning views of the other islands when paragliding, or go to the other extreme and explore the lava-formed caves and tunnels in the underwater world when scuba diving.
