Full of contrasts and extremely varied is a good description of the topography in the South and West of Lanzarote, dominated by the amazing Timanfaya National Park. With more than 30 volcanic peaks, this exciting lunar landscape is a ‘must see’ for every visitor to the island!
It is here in the south where you will find bizarre natural attractions: a legacy of the destructive powers of the volcanoes and the sea. El Golfo and Los Hervideros are two such places, which give a fascinating insight into how Mother Nature has shaped Lanzarote.
It also boasts the contrasting landscapes of the vast flat gravel plain El Rubicón in the west and the high plateau of the Los Ajaches Nature Reserve in the south, as well as the fertile winegrowing valley of La Geria north of Yaiza and Uga.
Spain-Lanzarote can highly recommend a fantastic hotel, the five-star Hotel Volcán Lanzarote. If you are looking for luxury, excellent quality accommodation and a range of top class facilities, then check out this opulent hotel and its special offers, which sits adjacent to the classy and cosmopolitan Rubicón Marina in the south.
In addition, there is the attractive southern coastline with the island’s most laid-back holiday resort of Playa Blanca and its excellent beaches, as well as the nearby southernmost tip of the island – Punta del Papagayo – where you will find many picturesque coves and beautiful stretches of sand. Nearby is the beautiful Princesa Yaiza Suite Hotel Resort, which overlooks the lovely white sands of Playa Dorada. This family-friendly hotel caters for everyone, has a fantastic thalassotherapy centre, offers fine-dining and 5-star quality guestrooms and suites. Another great hotel in this area is the 4-star Sandos Papagayo Arena Hotel offering an all-inclusive service at a great price. Some of the highlights include five swimming pools, a relaxing spa centre, several excellent quality bars and restaurants, entertainment for all the family and spacious rooms.
