Lanzarote is an ideal year round holiday destination. As this small Spanish island in the Canaries enjoys good weather even in winter. Whilst boasting loads for visitors to do and see.
The most popular attraction on the island is the Timanfaya National Park – which was created by violent volcanic activity during the 18th century. Leaving much of the interior of Lanzarote looking like the surface of the moon. Today hundreds of thousands of tourists visit this spot very year to gaze at the lava flows and dormant volcanoes.
Away from the volcanic interior Lanzarote boasts great beaches – close to 100 in total. Some of which are regarded as amongst the best in the whole of the Canaries. Such as Famara on the raw North West coastline and Papagayo located down in the south.
There are three main holiday resorts on Laznarote – each with its own identity and characteristics.
Costa Teguise is in the north of the island and is the best choice for anyone planning to view some of Lanzarote´s main attractions. As most of these are within a fifteen minute radius of the resort. Which is also home to a very good selection of hotels – such as the Gran Melia Salinas. One of just two five star establishments on the whole island.
Playa Blanca is located at the southern end of the island. Which makes it the best choice during the summer months as it tends to enjoy the best weather Lanzarote has to offer then. Whilst the north can be cloudy and grey.
Playa Blanca is also home to the largest number of villas in Lanzarote – many of which have been built over the last five years. So offering good quality, modern accommodation. Playa Blanca is located just across the Bocaina Straits from neighbouring Fuerteventura and is ideal for a beach holiday all year round.
Puerto del Carmen is located in the centre of the island – and is the biggest and most popular resort on Lanzarote. Boasting great beaches and excellent nightlife as well as a huge range of restaurants for visitors to choose from.
Puerto del Carmen is the ideal choice for anyone seeking apartments in Lanzarote. As the resort is home to the biggest selection of complexes of any resort. And has recently undergone something of a facelift as local tourist authorities have pumped €16 million into improving the tourist offering here.
