Luxury Lanzarote Holidays

Sandy beaches and lunar-like scenery

Lanzarote holidays bring you spectacular, unique landscapes and some of the best beaches in Spain’s Canary Islands. It’s close to the coast of north west Africa, bringing you year round sunshine and warm temperatures, which make it ideal for a holiday at any time of year. Families flock here for the child friendly resorts and hotels and large beaches which gently shelve into the waters. Couples will find tranquil hotels with excellent spas, restaurants, bars and more, while explorers can head into the island’s interiors for moonlike landscapes and volcanic mountains. 

Those wanting to explore Lanzarote’s culture and landscapes should book holidays in Puerto del Carmen. Here you’ll find volcanic mountains providing a beautiful backdrop to its golden beach and busy harbour. Playa Blanca is a lively resort with a soft sandy beach, and tropical gardens, as well as large hotel complexes with a host of amenities for guests of all ages.

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
