Lanzarote holidays are stealthily becoming one of the trendiest beach hotspots in the Canaries. A dormant volcano, last erupting in 1736, gives the island its unique lunar landscape and gorgeous black-sand beaches like Playa Quemada. With chic, eco-friendly resorts, immaculate beaches and a medley of fun activities on offer, holidays in Lanzarote are a premier-league holiday choice.

 

The island bathes in balmy year-round temperatures and its warm evenings and beautiful sunsets make it an ideal destination for a relaxing weekend getaway or family holiday in the sun. During spring, little towns like Arrecife to popular resorts like Puerto Del Carmen all gear up for the country's colourful carnivals, where excitable crowds spill into the streets to celebrate. If you prefer not to mingle with the tourist crowds, there are plenty of quiet beaches to sunbathe on, plus secluded coves like those near Papagayo and calm resorts like Finca de Arrieta are perfect for spreading your beach towel and soaking up the sun.

 

You'll experience an abundance of water and adventure sports galore on Lanzarote holidays —be it kitesurfing in Famara, surfing in Playa del Carmen, or windsurfing in Costa Teguise. This unique Canary Island serves up more than sand though, with gorgeous vineyards (including La Geira near Puerto del Carmen), natural beauty at Timanfaya National Park and high-street shopping in the capital of Arrecife, waiting to be discovered during your holidays in Lanzarote.

Timanfaya National Park

 

 

Timanfaya National Park

The exciting landscape of your Lanzarote holiday is best discovered by foot and if you are a keen walker this is the perfect place for you. The Timanfaya National Park is located in the south-west of the island and offers guided hikes for varying levels of fitness which involve stunning views. If you’re not a fan of walking enjoy a camel ride or horseback trek around the park instead. Guided coach tours are also available. Marvel at still-steaming volcanic mounds and eerie lava fields.

Discover Manrique & Picasso

 

Discover Manrique & Picasso

Lanzarote was home to legendary architect César Manrique. A visit to his home and museum - the Museo César Manrique - in Haria will give you an insight into his life and work but also a chance to see work by Picasso and many more of his contemporaries. The lower living space is housed in five naturally formed volcanic ‘bubbles’. Soak up his influence in the island's architecture, the pretty white houses with blue doors no taller than 3 stories were his design.

The Green Cave is one of the longest volcanic tunnels in the world and the guided tour is a holiday must.

Check out the aptly named chamber within the tunnel known as 'The Refuge' where people used to hide.
