Why Lanzarote should be your first post-COVID holiday
Once restrictions are lifted and travel returns to some sort of normality, holidaymakers like yourself will be faced with the ultimate dilemma – which destination to travel to first for some much needed sun!?
Whilst it is almost impossible to choose, here at Teletext Holidays we have a suggestion that ticks all the boxes you’ll want on a much needed holiday, has year-round sun and is super-affordable – Lanzarote!
But why is this Canary Island our top pick? Well, let us explain…
When it comes to holidays, most of us wold rank great beaches pretty high up on our list of must-haves, and this is why Lanzarote has been such a holiday favourite since the 1970s. The purpose built beach resorts of Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen attract thousands upon thousands of sun seekers every year and are geared up to make your stay a memorable one. If you want to show off to your friends and family, head to the white sand beach at Papagayo to capture that once in a lifetime shot of the perfect beach - they really don’t come much better and Papagayo Beach often tops ‘best beach’ lists online and in magazines.
One benefit Lanzarote - and indeed all the Canary Islands- has is that it enjoys year-round sunshine. This is ideal, especially as we are not too sure at the moment when Lanzarote is set to be added to the green list, but at least we know that when it is it will be waiting for you with sunny skies and balmy temperatures. In the summertime temperatures in Lanzarote average over 26 degrees, whilst in the winter they still reach over 20 degrees when everyone is shivering at home! A winter sun holiday to Lanzarote is ideal for couples and retirees who want to avoid the summer months when the kids descend and enjoy some more favorable temperatures too.
Whilst Lanzarote attracts thousands due to its first class beach resorts, there is so much more to the island than just sun, sea and sand. Head into the interior and you will be rewarded by a totally different scene, and one you may not have been expecting. In fact UNESCO has given the island World Biosphere Reserve status, to ensure the landscape is protected and able to be enjoyed by many more people in the years ahead. Black rock formations, mountains and craters that resemble the surface of the moon can be explored and give Lanzarote a unique edge when compared to other traditional fly and flop beach destinations, and has to be seen to be believed. Make sure you book in a day trip to Timanfaya National Park and explore the Fire Mountains, you will not be disappointed.
