White-sand beaches, a warm climate all year round and an array of attractions all combine to make Lanzarote an ideal holiday destination for a luxury holiday. Lanzarote's unique volcanic landscape almost resembles the surface of the moon, and the island has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. While on your Lanzarote holidays, a great way to explore the island is by car. At just 60 kilometres long, all of Lanzarote's attractions are within easy reach; the south is famous for its beautiful beaches and is home to many hidden coves where calm waters lap the white sands and in the north you'll find small fishing villages with excellent seafood restaurants. Also, don't forget to take a visit to some of Lanzarote's most popular holiday resorts. Choose from the low-key resort of Playa Blanca for elegant hotels and easy access by ferry to Fuerteventura, Costa Teguise for powder-soft sands or Playa de los Pocillos, on the outskirts of busy Puerto del Carmen.
Points of Interest in Lanzarote
The small village of Yaiza has been voted the prettiest village in Spain, and just north of here is the entrance to the Timanfaya National Park, one of the most popular attractions for people on Lanzarote holidays. The Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) were created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes rose up and devastated this part of the island, and the landscape looks the same now as it did just after the eruptions. Temperatures just a few metres below the surface can reach between 400°C and 600°C and the unique 'El Diablo' restaurant serves delicious Canarian food for lunch, which is cooked using geothermal heat.
A visit to the one time home of local architect, César Manrique, should be considered whilst on holiday in Lanzarote. Built in 1968, it uses the natural formation of five volcanic bubbles for the main rooms within the house, and an art gallery contains works by the likes of Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, as well as by Manrique himself.
Playa Papagayo is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Lanzarote, but there are many hidden coves with secluded beaches waiting to be discovered. For the more active, the island also offers spectacular diving sites, watersports and mountain biking.
