Overview

The island of Lanzarote has, away from the nightlife strips, incredible natural beauty. Often compared to the landscape of Mars, the dramatic black lava fields, towering red cliffs and spent volcanic cones make for an altogether surreal experience. Its climate is as unique as its topography, with temperatures rarely dropping below 18 degrees, and rarely topping 25, making Lanzarote holidays a solid option at any time of the year. It boasts some of the best beaches in all of the Canaries, from striking black sand numbers such as El Golfo, home to the famous green lagoon, to the beautiful and desolate golden sands of Playa de las Conchas and the bone-white Caleton Blanco. Lanzarote is also a great holiday destination for watersports and diving; Famara’s epic beach and reef breaks draw surfers from all over the world, and the island is home to Europe’s first underwater sculpture museum. So why not visit Lanzarote this year – it’s perfect as a year round sunshine holiday destination.

 

Why book Lanzarote holidays?

 

Timanfaya National Park - This vast otherworldly landscape was formed hundreds of years ago by volcanic eruptions. All but one of the volcanoes are now dormant.

 

El Golfo - Visit the green lagoon (featured in the 1966 Movie, One Million Years BC) and watch the powerful Atlantic breakers smashing into the cliffs.

 

Teguise - Explore the former capital of Lanzarote, the oldest of Lanzarote’s settlements. There are few attractions, but plenty of historic architecture to admire.

 

La Graciosa - Now the eight Canary Island, this is a place where tarmac roads and the cares of the modern world have yet to appear.

 

Mirador Del Rio - 400 metres up on the Risco de Famara cliff is this this cafe, designed Cesar Manrique, overlooking the island of Graciosa and the Atlantic Ocean. 

 

When to Go

Lanzarote has a rather unique climate. The temperature rarely gets above 25 degrees, and rarely below 18 degrees. Rain is very rare here, resulting in a somewhat dry climate with an average of only eight inches of rain annually, with most of that falling between December and January. Thanks to this climate, Lanzarote holidays are a superb option at any time of the year. It’s particularly favoured in the winter months when holidaymakers are wanting to get away from the rain and cold in their home countries.

Travelling by bus or car

There are comfortable, air conditioned buses which leave from most of the main resorts regularly and stop at the island’s most famous attractions. The smaller, local buses are slightly less reliable.

Top 5 things to do in Lanzarote

Top 5 things to do in Lanzarote

Lanzarote holidays are ideal for watersports, art and nature lovers, and those that just love to flop on the beach. Here are some of our favourite things to do on the island.


Marina Rubicon - Lanzarote’s glamorous marina is home to a plethora of boutiques, bars, eateries and luxury yachts. Plan on an afternoon of shopping, eating good food and watching the world go by.


Watersports - Good waves, great beaches and strong Atlantic winds make Lanzarote holidays a top choice for watersports. There are many centres catering for every level from beginners to experts.


César Manrique - César Manrique was an artist and architect born in Lanzarote. You’ll find his works all over the island, and it’s well worth taking the time to explore them.


Hit the beach - With 213km of coastline, Lanzarote has plenty of beaches. Head out of the resorts and you won’t find it hard to grab a large slide of sand all to yourself.


Go back in time - Formerly administered by Lanzarote, La Graciosa is now the eighth Canary Island.


Visit here for tranquillity - beaches are silent and unexplored, and there are no roads.

Best beaches in Lanzarote

There are many fantastic beaches in Lanzarote.  These are our favourites.


Playa De Papagayo - One of six beaches in the area of Los Ajaches National Park, this one is arguably the most stunning. Shallow emerald green waters perfect for snorkelling.


Playa Del Charco De Los Clicos (El Golfo) - The vivid green of the lagoon, volcanic black sand and red rocks offer a striking contrast with the blue sea, making this one an instagram favourite. 


Famara - the best on the island for watersports. The blustery conditions make it a top spot for surfers and windsurfers, but not necessarily for sunbathers.


Playa de las Conchas - The wildest one of the bunch. Picturesque with vast expanse of golden sand and sand dunes.


Caleton Blanco - This string of coves has bone-white sand; a sharp contrast with the black lava formations all around. A breathtaking beach, as you might expect here.

Sightseeing in Lanzarote
You might not think an arid, volcanic landscape could possibly offer much in the way of attractions. In the case of Lanzarote, you would be wrong. 

Jameos del Agua - Arguably Cesar Manrique´s most impressive creation, this is a series of volcanic caverns featuring an underground concert hall, restaurant and underground lake.

Cuevas de los Verdes - Part of the same lava tunnel that includes the Jameos del Agua, this underground tube is illuminated with clever lighting, creating an ethereal space that includes a concert hall.

The Cesar Manrique Foundation - The spectacular former home of the local artist and architect consists of five interconnected bubbles built into the lava. Works from Manrique and Picasso are on display here.

Museo Atlantico - The first underwater art museum in Europe includes over 300 eerie life-size statues on the seabed and is accessible to divers and snorkelers.

Museo Lagomar - Incredible house with rock gardens, caves, tunnels and secret passages to a lake. Bought by Omar Shariff when he first laid eyes on it, he allegedly lost it days later in a card game.
Food and Drink in Lanzarote
Lanzarote has plenty of dining and drinking options, from cheap eats to fine dining. Here we’ll break down our top choices.

El Navarro - Consistently rated as one of the best restaurants in Costa Teguise. Books up fast so call in advance.

Bistro Arbol - One of few options on the island that serves an entirely vegan menu, Arbol creates tasty plant-based dishes using the freshest ingredients.

El Diablo - Located in Timanfaya Park, El Diablo offers a panoramic 360° degree view of the surrounding area, and meat is barbecued over the rising heat of the volcano.

El Marinero - You’ll come across a lot of seafood restaurants in Lanzarote, but this one in Arrieta is outstanding. Elegantly presented and divinely tasty. 

La Cocina de Colacho - Outstanding, top quality food and friendly, attentive service that keeps guests coming back for more. One of the best restaurants on the island.
