Lush Lanzarote Holidays

With an astounding landscape, formed from the folds and ridges of lava that hardened into volcanic rock millions of years ago, the stunning beaches and brilliant blue skies make holidays to Lanzarote but paradisiac. The island can be neatly split into two regions - a holidaymaker’s haven in the south, where you’ll find the main hotels, nightlife and gorgeous beaches, and the wilder, more rugged north, home to inspiring views and unique volcanic terrain. It’s small enough to explore on foot at 37 miles long and 12 miles wide and even better, its constant pleasant climate makes it warm and gloriously sun-soaked.

Coastal Hotspots

Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing somewhere to stay on holidays to Lanzarote. Puerto del Carmen is understandably the hotspot for visitors. It’s the original, biggest of the island’s resorts, and perfect for those who want to soak up the best of Lanzarote. Home to a selection of Blue Flag beaches, a July folklore festival and plenty of cultural intrigue, it’s a wonderfully diverse destination.

Playa Blanca is ideal for families and couples, balancing the accessibility and familiarity of a beach resort with a spot of island individuality. There’s enough fun on the beach to keep the kids amused, but still the odd pocket of tranquillity for parents and couples to escape into.

Costa Teguise is another great choice, excellently positioned just 20 minutes away from the island’s main airport. There is a great selection of bars, restaurants and beaches here, and it’s developing quite a reputation as a water sports hub; perfect for those who want Lanzarote holidays that team relaxation with a splash of action.

Sun, Sea and Sand

Blessed with an activity-friendly climate and rugged northern terrain, holidays to Lanzarote are great for those who enjoy adrenaline pumping action, as well as beachside relaxation. You’ll find plenty of opportunities for hiking and climbing, but it’s cycling that’s the most popular of the island’s active pursuits; don’t be surprised to find yourself sharing the road with lyrca-sporting cycling fans as you travel from place to place.

Unsurprisingly though, Lanzarote’s beaches are the biggest draw. The surfing conditions are often superb – head to Famara, the spectacular cliff-backed beach on the island’s north-west coast, for some of the best surf around, as well as the chance to go kiteboarding or windsurfing. There are also plenty of hideaway spots to kick back, relax and soak up the sun; perfect for those who are searching for a year-round pleasantly warm destination.

Although small in size, Lanzarote offers a wealth of different things to see and do. Thanks to the ever-visible work of the island’s architect extraordinaire, Cesar Manrique, eye-catching buildings are never far away, and there are plenty of interesting museums and galleries where you can get up to speed on the island’s fascinating past.
