There’s so much to see and do on Lanzarote - there’s something for everyone!
From retail therapy to dusty go-karting, the island has it all.
The rocky, volcanic island of Lanzarote is the closest of the Canary islands to Africa - just over 100km away! With gorgeous golden-sand, sun-soaked beaches and blue skies, the island surpasses the brief for a ‘sun and sea’ holiday. Traditional white homes are scattered across the island, surrounded by towering palm trees, beautiful hibiscus flowers and cacti. Lanzarote is very small, meaning most attractions are easily accessible - in fact, you can drive from the most southern to the northernmost point in around an hour!
On your visit, we recommend that you try fresh seafood by the coast; discover more about the culture through visits to galleries, museums and castles; and that you explore the island’s nature through sightseeing, car rides, hikes and bike rides.
We’ve put together our Top 5 recommendations, detailing our favourite Lanzarote experiences - all of which are easy to get to from our apartment.
The National Park is often described as ‘other-worldly’ due to its Mars-like landscape, in fact, the park was used as a training base for Nasa’s Apollo 17 crew! Drive up to Islote de Hilario to take part in a guided coach tour through the Montañas del Fuego; witness the geyser erupting outside of the beautiful El Diabo restaurant where you can eat food cooked in the volcanic flames; and stop off at Echadero de Camellos for a camel ride across the black sands.

There are many of César Manrique’s attractions to see on Lanzarote, but we’ve added some of our favourites below. Click here to find out more on ALL of the Manrique destinations.
Built in 1775, El Grifo winery is the oldest bodega in the Canary Islands. Local farmers utilise the landscapes’ volcanic ash to grow vines that produce wine full of character and heritage.

Visit El Grifo to explore the winery, vineyard and museum. They have a fascinating collection of antique equipment, but, best of all, you can take part in some wine tasting! You deserve a glass of El Grifo wine after a long day of sightseeing.

Situated along the coast from El Golfo, Los Hervideros (aka, the boiling pots) is a section of the historic coastline where lava meets water - made accessible for guests to wonder at the spectacular crashing waves and unique landscape. Bring a camera and use the balconies fitted within the rocks to take fantastic photos of the sea and lava formations, as well as viewing the magnificent volcanoes in the background (such as the Bermeja and Guincho Volcanoes).

There are many ways to visit Puerto Calero from Puerto del Carmen, such as by bus, bike, car or the beautiful coastal path - however, a trip on the water taxi is a quick and cost effective way to see Lanzarote's coastline from the sea. Return tickets cost just €12 for adults and €7 for children, and the crossing takes around 20 minutes. If you’re lucky you might be able to spot a pod of dolphins swimming alongside the boat! The marina of Puerto Calero has traditional restaurants, sophisticated boutiques and a scenic waterfront. Book tickets, view the timetable and learn more by clicking here.

Boasting a 'sub tropical climate', Lanzarote offers visitors year-long sunshine and heat. This Canary Island is located near West Africa and the Sahara Desert, meaning it can get very hot. A nice north-easterly breeze and ‘Canary Current’ helps cool down the island and keep the temperature under control.
Lanzarote usually has its best weather from June to September, with the hottest month of the year being August, but winter months can be equally as warm. You can expect temperatures to range from 22°C to 31°C and the average water temperature in Lanzarote to range from 18°C to 22°C!
