Lanzarote Holidays

Read more about Lanzarote

Lanzarote holidays have it all: great weather, volcanic landscapes and tasty cuisine. Relax on one of the many beaches, explore the rich culture or treat your taste buds to the variety of seafood and locally produced wines.

Beaches
Lanzarote is home to both black and white sand beaches. Playa Blanca beach is one of the biggest, whilst Playa Grande Beach in Puerto Del Carmen is also popular due to its many facilities including eateries, hammocks and watersports. For a quieter and more secluded experience, head to the bays of Papagayo Peninsula which are hidden away in the Los Ajaches nature reserve.

Culture
Like its neighbouring islands, Lanzarote goes all out for Carnival season every February and March with the biggest crowds gathering in Arrecife. Castillo de San Jose, also in Arrecife, is an old fort that was built in 1774 on the orders of King Don Carlos III to try and alleviate the poverty that arose from a series of volcanic eruptions in the 1730s. The fort has since been transformed into a museum and holds the most important collection of modern art in the Canaries.

Food & Drink
Often served with a side of mojos (a sauce made from spices, lemon and chillies), Lanzarote cuisine is packed full of flavour and usually features seafood including sea bream, sea bass, and for the more daring, squid. Costa Teguise is the best place to sample locally-produced wines, especially those made from the Malvasia grape.

Nightlife
For a chance to dance until the early hours, a trip to the lively resort of Puerto del Carmen is recommended. Centro Atlantico and Avenida de las Playas have the most clubs while The Island Bar in Las Palmas offers the perfect setting to enjoy a cosy cocktail alongside live music.

Things To Do on Lanzarote Holidays

Watersports
Owing to its underwater landscape and exotic marine life, scuba diving is extremely popular in Lanzarote, particularly in Playa Blanca and Puerto Del Carmen. Diving centres can be found on most beaches and offer boat and night dives for everyone from beginner to expert.

Museo Atlantico
Just off the coast of south Lanzarote sits Europe’s first underwater museum, which is 14m deep! Created by British eco-sculptor Jason deCaries Taylor, the museum features 200 real size human figures, a 30m long wall and a botanic garden.

Timafaya National Park
Previously, over 100 active volcanoes sat on the site of Timafaya National Park, which now offers a unique landscape full of rare plant life. Several demonstrations of how hot the area is also take place, including the throwing of dry bush into a hole in the ground (which immediately catches fire). You can also take a guided tour of the park, even by camel if you wish.
