The paradise island of Lanzarote will welcome you with stunning beaches, sparkling sea, volcanic landscape and numerous attractions...
Flights to Lanzarote take around four to five hours from the UK and visitors arrive at Arrecife Airport (ACE). Though a part of Spain, Lanzarote is a duty-free destination so visitors stock up on goodies - but before you cram your suitcase with your purchases, check your luggage allowance or all the money you've saved on shopping could be wiped out on excess baggage fees.
The constantly warm and dry climate attracts holidaymakers, as does the eerie lunar-like volcanic landscape and the 'Fire Mountains' of Timanfaya National Park.
Holidays in Lanzarote offer so much more than a resort experience. There are watersports to try and golf clubs to swing. That's if you want to actually tear yourself away from the pool or the beach in your resort. Relaxation is at the top of the agenda for most visitors, after all.
When it comes to resorts, there are a number of options. Nowhere is built up and rowdy in Lanzarote, not even the most popular holiday hotspots such as Puerto del Carmen. Other choices include Costa Teguise, Matagorda, Playa Blanca, Playa de los Pocillos, Puerto Calero, Arrieta, Haria, Playa El Cable and Playa Dorada. That's 30 kilometres of coastline and 99 beaches on which to find your perfect spot.
Car hire is a great idea in Lanzarote, as it opens up the island to your adventurous spirit. Popular day trips include a visit to Jameos del Agua, where a natural gallery of grottoes and caves will have you transfixed. El Golfo, or the gulf, is a crater with a green lake, caused by the presence of algae. Lanzarote's most beloved son, the artist César Manrique, is celebrated at his Foundation (or you can spot his distinctive creations all around the island). The kids will enjoy a day in the 'Wild West' at Rancho Texas theme park too.
