Lanzarote

Introducing Lanzarote, one of the idyllic Canary Islands, known for its year-round sunshine, volcanic landmarks and beautiful beaches. With friendly locals, a warm culture and a slower pace of life, embrace the Canarian charm and embark on a luxury holiday discovery as you explore the enchanting streets.
 
Lanzarote represents natural beauty. This picture-perfect destination is all about eco-friendly places, unspoiled landscapes and spending your days swimming, cycling and sampling the local eateries.
 
The island boasts a welcoming atmosphere and warm people and is dotted with authentic bistros and cafes. Wander across the cobbled streets and you can expect to be greeted by friendly locals as well as an array of scenic seafood restaurants, and enchanting bars. Prepare for your taste buds to be tantalised from start to finish with ultra-fresh fish, fine cuts of meats and organic island produce.
 
While there are excellent family-friendly complex’s in Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen and Costa Teguise, away from the top-notch resorts there is also a variety of low-key places to stay depending on your preference. Accommodation on offer across Lanzarote includes traditional bungalows and village houses as well as five-star hotels hosting rooms, spacious suites and secluded villas for those seeking extra seclusion.
 
The island has its fair share of spas so if you need to de-stress, you’re in the right spot. The wellness centres will have you scrubbed in sea salts before soothing your skin in an organic mud mask before pampering you in a range of holistic mineral treatments.
 
The Atlantic Ocean is one of the biggest attractions luring tourists to the Canary Islands time and time again alongside the excellent climate of course. With the warm waters surrounding Lanzarote offering great conditions for watersports, it’s a surfer’s paradise. The south coast is especially inviting for swimming, snorkelling, or boat excursions while the north coast’s windier conditions offers the ultimate playground for surfing and sailing alike. On summer afternoons watch out for the prevailing waves.
 
The most popular beaches have the ‘European Blue Flag’ standard along with the attendance of lifeguards so safety is a virtue. If you’re a confident swimmer why not embark in a little scuba-diving? Explore the sub-aquatic volcanic world and discover a fascinating variety of marine life that reside in the crystal waters.
 
When night falls Lanzarote comes alive with a great mix of nightlife. The south, in particular, is bustling with evening electricity. Puerto del Carmen boasts an array of vibrant pubs, bars and nightclubs, especially around Avenida de las Playas where you can expect to be spoilt for choice. Also, at Playa Blanca’s cosmopolitan Marina Rubicón you’ll find stylish cocktail bars, high-end restaurants and swanky after dark destinations so stroll along and take your pick.

WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 
Rather than one beach, Caletón Blanco is a bracelet of tiny cloves of white sand and warm rock pools. Perched on the north-east coast of the island near Órzola, this natural landscape of volcanic ruins infused with hot water is definitely Instagram-worthy.

Location

Lanzarote In A Nutshell

Life’s A Beach
 

  • With year-round warm weather, volcanic landscapes and golden beaches, you are guaranteed unrivalled natural beauty as you soak up the rays on the picturesque island. Whether you want a long stretch of pristine sand with calming water, a top spot for windsurfing or a bay set in the vestiges of a crater, Lanzarote has it all plus more. Ride the waves or swim in a secret cove at the bottom of a cliff for a secluded affair.
     
  • Like the rest of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote developed from the sea as the outcome of volcanic activity, but only a few of its beaches have black sand so it’s totally your choice.
     
  • Popular destinations, Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen boast many beaches with the ‘European Blue Flag’ standard and lifeguards at watch, so enjoying leisurely family swims will be bliss. If you’re into watersports you will be massively spoilt for choice so don’t forget to pack a wet suit.
     
  • The southern end of La Garita beach offers good surfing conditions, a children’s playground and a tapas bar, making it a great place to spend the day with the family.
     
  • Playa Quemada, located on the south-east coast of the island adjoins with a former fishing village near Puerto Calero and offers a calming oasis and uninterrupted sunbathing sessions sheltered from the winds.

     
  • Enjoy a day of fun at Lanzarote’s Rancho Texas Park. With fantastic animal shows and a Wild West waterpark, swim, sunbathe and lap up the entertainment.
     
  • Travel in a 4x4 vehicle and set off to discover the rugged landscape and some of the hidden gems of the island. Look out for the volcanic craters that evoke a lunar-like vista, and drive down coastal tracks offering unrivalled ocean views. This off-road journey will get a little bumpy so fasten up your seat belt and prepare for an epic ride.
     
  • A catamaran cruise is a must. Travel along Lanzarote’s jagged coastline and enjoy a buffet as you watch out for the dolphins and pilot whales. When you anchor up cool off in the waters, grab a snorkel and discover the underwater marine life. After a scrumptious lunch embark on some fun watersports. How does jet skiing or a banana boat ride sound?

     

Tastes To Try
 

  • For a taste of traditional Canarian cuisine, La Tegala is an absolute must. You can expect ultra-fresh ingredients, with a menu that changes according to the seasonal produce available. This high-end authentic eatery will be sure to seduce your taste buds with an exclusive tasting menu and wine pairing while offering you striking vistas across to Fuerteventura.
     
  • Set alongside the volcanic beach at El Golfo, Bogavante is your go to for mouthwatering paella, vibrant salad and succulent prawns. Eat by the sea on the southern tip of the island and enjoy a chilled vibe paired with delicious dishes.
     
  • After an afternoon of shopping in Lanzarote’s capital, Arrecife, why not stop off for a gourmet burger and a cold beer at Tabla Arrecife? Savour a sizzling sharing platter and tuck into a selection of cheese at the atmospheric eatery.
