Beach Bliss

Whether you fancy a 5-star water-side retreat or a family-friendly resort complete with kids’ clubs, there are some great options to choose from on your holidays to Lanzarote. Costa Teguise is situated on the south east corner of the island and is a great destination for those travelling with little ones, boasting a sheltered beach and a wealth of family attractions.

If you’re looking for sand between your toes, visit Playa Blanca. Impressive coastlines and a sophisticated marina ensure a stylish destination for your Lanzarote holidays. If you’d rather a lively atmosphere and buzzing nightlife, head down to the bustling harbour town of Puerto Del Carmen – an ideal location for party people.

Sun, Sea and Sangria

There is plenty of fun and entertainment to be had, whatever you choose to do. Shopaholics looking for unique souvenirs must take a trip to Teguise Market – the biggest outdoor market in the Canary Islands, packed with over 360 stands. Canarian lacework, hand-crafted leather and locally-made jewellery are all here and available to buy and take home. When you tire of browsing its stalls, take a stroll through Teguise, taking a brief stop-off at one of the many cafes to enjoy the views as well as the delicious local doughnuts.

If you’d rather experience a slice of the action, Puerto del Carmen is the place to be. For those into thrill-seeking sports, try diving or bareback horse riding while those who have an aptitude for the open waves will love the surfing opportunities that holidays in Lanzarote bring.

This area is also popular for anyone looking for evening entertainment, with a wealth of pubs, clubs and disco bars located conveniently on Puerto del Carmen’s main strip. Relax in a laid back cocktail bar or showcase your best moves in Lanzarote’s finest nightclubs – the choice is yours.

Out and About in Lanzarote

An island of inspiration and opportunity, your Lanzarote is packed full of natural wonders just longing to be discovered.

For a brief history lesson, head to the Northern tip of the island where you’ll explore Lanzarote’s traditional side. Begin at the Green Caves, where passages and natural stairways lead to an impressive auditorium, before visiting Cesar Manrique’s legendary Jameos Del Agua - a volcanic cavern with rock gardens, a shimmering lake and a restaurant. For breath-taking views, take a trip to the Mirador Del Rio, an attractively-designed observation point built into a volcanic lava rock cliff.

If you’d rather kick back, relax and enjoy the sunshine, Lanzarote’s beaches are the place to be. While the main resorts on the island hold host to beautiful sandy coastlines, you’ll want to head to Papagayo beaches for something special. Located just outside of Playa Blanca, this seemingly secluded area is abundant in natural beauty and evokes a feeling of desert island escape worth savouring.

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.
