Lanzarote: best of the Canaries

The Canary Islands are one of the most visited parts of the world. Thousands of holidaymakers flock to these islands each year to bask in the all-year sun but there’s so much more to see and do, as each island in the Canaries is unique.

Lanzarote is one of the most popular islands with British holidaymakers, as no matter what you’re looking for it is sure to have it. When flying to Lanzarote, you are guaranteed a pleasant flight as well as benefiting from the numerous affordable deals that could save you hundreds of pounds. What will you find when you arrive at your destination?

Lanzarote, the Canary Islands

The volcanic island of Lanzarote

Lanzarote is often referred to as the “Hawaii of Europe” and the unique volcanic landscape gives the island a very outer-world feel.

Lava fields that were created way back in 1730-1736 have been preserved thanks to the island’s dry climate and the architecture of the island is largely influenced by Cesar Manrique; the man who rescued Lanzarote from being developed. All over the island you’ll see impressive sculptures and buildings created by Manrique, so don’t forget to take your camera!

At one time Lanzarote had quite a poor reputation but these days you’ll find that the island is a lot more upmarket than it used to be. It’s a chic, eco-friendly destination and perfect for those who like to explore, cycle and surf on their holidays. If you’d prefer to just laze away the days on a beautiful beach, then Lanzarote is still willing to oblige with plenty of prime spots.

The most popular parts of Lanzarote to head to include Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen. The northern part of the island is a stark contrast from the south and instead of volcanic craters the landscape in the north consists of beautiful green valleys. It really couldn’t be more different!

No matter what time of year you visit Lanzarote, the weather is always going to be hot enough to sunbathe and that is a real bonus for a number of holidaymakers.

For the best possible experience, remember to research as much as you possibly can before jetting off – and that includes searching for competitive holiday deals.
