There are plenty of frequent flights to Lanzarote from airlines including Thomas Cook, They all fly to Lanzarote’s main airport, Arrecife. The journey takes about four hours. It is likely that as part of your all-inclusive deal a transfer will be organized from the airport to take you to your chosen resort however this does vary between each resort so check with your chosen one. As the island is fairly small, getting around is pretty easy. The island has good buses, and abundant cheap hire cars and taxis.
If your all-inclusive resort is close to the water surrounding this beautiful island then it is likely to have a beach. However most of the island's coastline is made up of rocks, the beach at the mountainous area of Famara, for example, is excellent for surfing, as is the stunning Punto del Papagayo (the Parrot Spot). Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca are all popular resorts with British tourists. There is a peaceful nudist beach called Charco de Palo near the village of Mala on the north east coast.
The capital Arrecife is sprinkled with interesting sights. There's San Gabriel castle housing a small museum, a pretty church and the Charco area denoted by palm trees, cottages and souvenir shops. There are also a number of pretty villages scattered throughout the island. It’s usually best to hire a car to get to these villages. Femes, Tinajo and Tahiche are some of the more remarkable ones.
The food in Lanzarote leaves nothing to be desired and you can make full use of this in your all-inclusive resort. Most all-inclusive resorts will offer a wide range of local and foreign cuisine, usually in buffet style so that there is a wide enough range to satisfy all tastes. It's worth trying to seek out a typical Canarian restaurant to sample tapas and fresh seafood, this trip out from your all-inclusive resort may not seem to be needed but will definitely be worth it, local restaurants will give you a taste of the way of life in Lanzarote.
Bars in Lanzarote tend to stay open till the last person has left, so if you’re looking to dance the night away then you have picked the right destination, the locals also love to party so there is always the chance to get a bit of traditional party experience!
There are lots of duty-free goods to be found in Lanzarote's main resorts. Popular souvenirs include leather, arts, crafts, clothes, jewellery and locally-made wines. The markets in Teguise are a good place to find gifts and local produce, such as wine and cheese. It also boasts the Art and Antiques Emporium, great for souvenirs.
If you are looking to keep the kids happy on your holiday in Lanzarote, Costa Teguise is home to a great water park. The Guinate Tropical Park, which is easily accessible from most places on the island, also comes recommended - especially the parrot show that takes place there. You can also board a yellow submarine at Puerto del Carmen and observe the local underwater wildlife in clear-blue waters. The Cactus Garden, which was designed by the island's very own Cesar Manrique, also offers something a little different.
