    Things to do in Lanzarote

    Dive into some exciting 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.

    Costa Teguise Aquapark

    A fun day out for the whole family, make the most of the sunshine while getting your dose of adrenaline at this popular waterpark. Slides, splash zones, rapids and even a 10D Cinema await at this exciting local attraction.

    Explore the 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.

    Discover Timanfaya National Park

    Previously, over 100 active volcanoes sat on the site of Timanfaya National Park, which now offers a unique landscape full of rare plant life. Several demonstrations of how hot the area is regularly 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!

    Submarine Safari

    Head to Puerto Calero for a submarine safari with the family. Submerge into the water and discover the amazing sealife living beneath the surface, with a professional guide to show you all the wonders on your journey.

    Go underground at the Jameos Del Agua

    Once just a series of underground lava caves, this must-see attraction has been reinvented by artist and architect, Cesar Manrique. It’s an underground labyrinth of cleverly lit caves, a stunning cave bar, gorgeous underground lake… and even a concert hall.
