With its volcanic backdrop and a wealth of beaches to choose from, Lanzarote’s attractions are focused on the stark beauty of its surroundings. This Canary Island boasts undulating mountains and endless hidden coves, complimented by the distinct architecture of local Lanzarote artist, Cesar Manrique. Manrique's home is an unmissable top attraction, built into rocky boulders and filled to the brim with artwork. 

If you fancy venturing out on a hike, you can also enjoy the unique natural beauty of Timanfaya National Park, formed from volcanic ridges and rock formations. Cueva de los Verdes is also worth the 45 minute tour that leads you down two chasms along a lava tube five miles long, formed by the volcano 5,000 years ago. Other natural wonders besides Timanfaya include Jameos, a sprawling volcanic cave complex. Inside Jameos you'll find a restaurant and tours available.

Shopaholics looking for unique souvenirs must take a trip to Teguise Market, the largest outdoor market on Lanzarote, and the largest in the Canary Islands. Canarian lacework, hand-crafted leather and locally-made jewellery are all available to buy and take home, but Teguise Market is worth exploring as an attraction in itself. Once you’ve browsed the stalls, take a stroll through Costa Teguise past one of the many cafes to enjoy the views, as well as the delicious local doughnuts.

Top resorts in Lanzarote for an all inclusive hotel or just for a daytrip include the popular Costa Teguise, Playa de Los Pocillos and of course, the capital, Arrecife.

For Couples

For Couples

Lanzarote is a true paradise for a couple’s holiday where you can both expect to enjoy peace, tranquillity and a whole lot of fun exploring the island. Start your journey in Arrecife, explore Timanfaya national park, and head to the ever popular Costa Teguise. Lanzarote has a lot to offer.

If you want some alone time with your loved one, then a day at the spa at your Lanzarote hotel is a great place to start. Unwind and relax at the Spa and Wellness at Arrecife Gran Hotel, which is a luxury oasis of calm that offers couples treatments for the ultimate pamper session. 

For an adults-only trip, book a trip on Catlanza, Lanzarote’s famous catamaran, which sails from Puerto Calero twice a day.

Puerto Calero itself is a nice spot, and you can enjoy the views of the neighbour Canary Island, Fuerteventura, before the ride.

To experience Lanzarote’s legendary sunsets, find a beach and settle down on the sand or a beachfront bar. Famara and Playa Blanca both provide excellent views, however watching the sun go down at El Golfo is by far the best.

Culture

Culture

As the second eldest island in the Canaria archipelago after Fuerteventura, Lanzarote rose from the sea during a massive volcanic eruption, around 15 million years ago.

For a brief history lesson, head to the Northern tip of the island where you’ll discover Lanzarote’s traditional side. Begin at the Cueva de Los Verdes, 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. Another Manrique creation is the Mirador del Rio, an attractively-designed observation point built into a volcanic lava rock cliff, which is now home to a chic bar and café.

Lanzarote is famed for being very relaxed and so during the hours of two until five the siesta is still observed in many places, with shops and banks often taking a well-earned break. So go with the flow and take it easy Lanzarote-style, you’re on holiday after all!
