Covid-19 has certainly disrupted plans for travellers and holiday-goers over the past year. We remain hopeful that the UK government’s ‘roadmap’ will allow visitors to return to B4 Lago Verde this summer. Foreign travel from the UK is set to reopen on the 17th May with a ‘traffic light system’ put in place for countries across the globe. We will continue to update this page regularly as we receive important information, so please check back with us in the future as things progress.
We hope that we can help restore some excitement for your next adventure in Lanzarote as we try our best to answer any queries you have about the impact of Covid-19 on your holiday.

You can visit Lanzarote if you are from a country within the European Union, a country in the Schengen area, or from the following accepted countries: UK, Australia, China, South Korea, New Zealand, Rwanda, Thailand, Israel, Japan, and Singapore. This page is mainly focused on providing details specific to travellers from the UK and England, so we encourage you to check the travel requirements for your country on another website, such as your country’s government or health websites, as the information we provide may not be relevant.
On the 7th May, a travel list was revealed - Spain has currently been placed within the ‘Amber’ tier. (The UK government plans to review this every three weeks.) These tiers relate to the ‘traffic light system’ put in place by the UK government. In this system, travel to red areas will mean increased testing and quarantining, whereas travel to green areas is more relaxed. Unfortunately, you are not able to travel to amber and red list countries for leisure purposes, you can only visit countries within the green list for holidays. We hope that the Canary Islands will be placed on the green list soon!
For more information on the red, amber and green list, check out the guidance released on the UK government's website by clicking here.
The information provided online is very vague and confusing, however we have done our best to piece together any information we can find relating to tests and requirements.
From our research, we have reached the conclusion that The UK (being no longer in the EU) is classified as a third country and is now considered low risk by the government of Spain. If Spain/The Canary Islands are placed on the Green list (which allows us to travel there for holidays) and the UK is still considered to be low risk, you will be expected to do the following for your visit:
Before arrival in Spain, you must:
Before arrival to B4 Lago Verde you must:

Lanzarote is one of the areas in the world least affected by COVID-19. It is mandatory to wear a mask for adults and children above 6 years old unless you are eating food, partaking in physical activity or have a disability/illness that prevents you from wearing PPE. You must keep a social distance from others (1.5 meters) and enforce good hygiene through regular hand sanitisation. Lanzarote residents and workers continue to do their best to keep areas clean and Covid-free in the hopes that tourism will soon be able to return.
One of the enticing selling points of visiting the Canary Islands is that you can discover several islands whilst on the same trip. At the moment, movement between the islands is allowed and there are daily connections that allow you to easily get from one island to another. You can travel by plane or by boat with airlines such as Binter and Canaryfly, or shipping lines such as Fred Olsen, Armas, Biosfera Express and Líneas Romero.
Some islands have entry and exit restrictions if they are at alert level 3 and 4. Click here to discover which islands have travel restrictions. Islands that are at alert level 1 and 2 do not have any travel restrictions.
We are taking some extra steps to ensure our apartment stays sanitised and safe for our visitors. We take our cleaning very seriously between guests. Our cleaning contract is consistent with the Airbnb advanced Covid cleaning policy and with Canarian Government guidelines.
