With guaranteed sunshine, great beaches, dramatic landscape and family-friendly resorts, you really can’t go wrong with Lanzarote.
This diverse island has been welcoming holidaymakers for decades and as such, caters perfectly for families, couples and explorers, with surprises around every corner.
Average temperatures rise to a peak of 29C in August, but the sub-tropical climate mean it’s still warm in the winter months. Lanzarote’s volcanic landscape sometimes gives the island a rather stark almost moon-like appearance but this rare mix of geology and ecology, is why it is registered as a Unesco Biosphere Reserve.
Lanzarote’s striking landscape is complimented by its distinctive whitewashed, cuboid buildings and architecture. This is largely down to the island’s most famous resident, the artist César Manrique who made the island his home until his death in 1992. Manrique’s influence can be seen throughout Lanzarote.
Away from the mountainous, lunar landscape, great beaches, appealing resorts and exciting activities are always to be found. Sporting facilities are excellent, particularly for cyclists, as are the surfing and windsurfing.
The quiet, laid-back resort of Playa Blanca is situated right at the foot of the island and boasts three fabulous sandy beaches and a pretty seafront promenade, while Paradise Island has some of the best selection of slides, lagoons and pools.
And as a fairly small island – just 37 miles long by 12 miles wide – Lanzarote is easy to get around meaning holidaymakers will quickly feel at home.
