Lanzarote – an island of intriguing beauty!!Why do so many people choose Lanzarote as their number one holiday destination? The answer is simple... it is outstandingly beautiful, has great weather, the lunar landscape is extraordinary, the beaches are sublime and the hotels are first-class.
The island is bursting with striking contrasts. Although the whole Canarian archipelago is volcanic, it is on Lanzarote where the recent volcanic history is most evident. There are around 300 peaks, the majority of which are extinct but some are just taking a nap… Learn more about the stunning Timanfaya National Park here.
The island is full of life, with its own extraordinary and unmistakable character. Many Lanzaroteños did not give up following the tremendous eruptions in the 18th and early 19th century, which devastated their fertile land. Instead, they found an ingenious way of cultivating the barren lava fields and made every effort to preserve their natural heritage, culture and traditions.
Lanzarote is also a unique example of how one single man can have so much influence on the landscape, developing it for tourism while maintaining its natural beauty and history. César Manrique is hailed as the island’s internationally renowned son. He left his signature everywhere… as sculptor, painter, architect and environmentalist. Except for one hotel in Arrecife, all buildings on the island are low-rise – not taller than a Canary palm – and you won’t find any advertising hoardings at the roadsides either.
There are so many lovely places to explore; from the sunny coastal resorts and unspoiled beaches of Papagayo and the upmarket resort of Playa Blanca, to Costa Teguise on the east coast and the cultural cosmopolitan capital city of Arrecife.
Whatever you want from your holiday, this sun-drenched destination has it all. Come and discover it with the travel experts at Spain-Lanzarote.
