Why visit Lanzarote?

Natural beauty

From rocky and sandy beaches, to volcanoes, there’s a whole world to explore. The south of the island is home to Timanfaya National Park. With more than 100 volcanoes, the orange-crimson landscape stretches out like a sea of lava. Local artist César Manrique built many architectural projects across the island, including Jameos del Agua, and gave Lanzarote an unspoilt, unique feel with white, low-rise buildings and brightly coloured sculptures.

If beautiful gardens spike your interest, then Jardin de Cactus in the village of Guatiza should be on your list.

Dreamy day trips

Head to one of the many bodegas and enjoy a glass of Spanish wine, surrounded by volcanic fields. For a spot of history, El Grifo is the oldest winery in the whole of the Canary Islands!

Explore the nearby island of La Graciosa on a boat trip. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, white sand and traditional cuisine, experience ultimate escapism. If you’re looking for a hidden gem, a hike up Montaña Roja offers breathtaking views from the top. Or venture to the coast in Los Hervideros to see the incredible cliffs and caves that were formed when the sea met lava.

Family fun

With waterparks, catamaran adventures, and family-friendly beaches with water sports, there’s something to keep the whole family entertained.

Take a trip to Museo de la Pirateria, a 16th-century fortress which is set on a volcano. On top of learning about the island’s fascinating pirate history, you can also take in scenic views.

Meet Maria, guide for Lanzarote

“Lanzarote is a beautiful, volcanic island which is ideal for both families and couples. To truly make the most of your holiday, I’d highly recommend renting a car to experience as much as possible.

Venture to the island’s capital, Arrecife, to visit the local markets, walk around Charco San Gines – a lagoon of natural seawater, or roam around the castle, Castillo de San Gabriel. I’d also recommend day trips to Playa Blanca, Playa Flamingo and Playa Dorada.

Taste the local gastronomy with fresh seafood, and a potato-based dish called papas arrugadas with mojo picón. A trip to El Diablo restaurant is a must – with views of the fire mountains, your food is uniquely cooked using the heat from a volcano!

A fun fact about Lanzarote – it has the biggest volcanic submerged tube in the world for diving, called Tunel de la Atlántida.”
