Where to Stay

Lanzarote is a tourist hub and has a wealth of accommodation options

Lanzarote has a highly developed tourism economy and accommodation is available all over the island. Visitors can book an apartment in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote’s original resort and closest to Arrecife Airport. Days can be spent here relaxing on golden sandy beaches. From the oldest to the newest, Playa Blanca has villas next to the beautiful beaches at Papagayo. Visitors looking to have an active trip should choose an apartment in Costa Teguise where there is a golf course, aquapark and aquarium. Jet skiing can also be enjoyed here. Another good choice for holiday accommodation are the sister resorts of Los Pocillos and Matagorda. While they are generally peaceful resorts, both areas have many restaurants and bars. Matagorda is connected to Los Pocillos via a promenade.

Things to Do

Lanzarote is full of sandy beaches and has a stunning national park

Lanzarote is famous for its beautiful sandy beaches and clear blue stretches of water. Visitors to Lanzarote enjoy the various water-sports on offer including snorkeling, diving, windsurfing and canoeing. There’s also a water park on the island as well as submarine trips available from Puerto del Carmen. The Timanfaya National Park incorporates some of the amazing landscape that has resulted from the volcanic eruption on Lanzarote in the 1730s and park covers a quarter of the island’s surface. It includes such sights as the Montanas Del Fuego (Mountains of Fire) which includes a restaurant and has some amazing mountain views. Another top attraction is La Cueva de los Verdes, which forms part of a spectacular system of underground grottoes. It is one of the longest volcanic galleries in the world.

Eating and Drinking

Lanzarote has a great food scene and their are lots of local specialties on offer

Local cuisine is very popular amongst tourists and locals. Included in menus all over Lanzarote is ‘mojo’ which means sauce. ‘Mojo picon’ means hot sauce whereas ‘mojo verde’ means green pepper and coriander sauce. Papas arrugás, wrinkly potatoes cooked in salt, are often served with mojos. One of the best restaurants to visit for Canarian cuisine is La Tegala, where views of Fuerteventura can be enjoyed while dining. English food is also common on Lanzarote to cater for the large amount of English tourists that visit the island every year. Restaurants are plentiful and inexpensive, but if you don’t feel like eating out you can always cook with some fresh Spanish produce in your self-catering apartment or villa. La Cabaña is the best place for an international menu. With indoor and outdoor seating, it is ideal for a romantic evening.

Getting Around

Lanzarote is well-connected to the rest of the Canary Islands

Arrecife Airport has connections with many European destinations. it is located to the west of the town, approximately 20 minutes away. Buses and taxis are available to get into Arrecife and other parts of the island. It is also possible to travel to Lanzarote by ferry and there are ferries available from Portimao via Madeira. The best way to get around is via car and you’ll find many car hire outlets on the island. Buses are by far the most popular mode of transport for locals and tourists alike. Motorised scooters are popular for getting around although some precaution should be taken in July when frequent strong winds often make riding difficult. It is possible to travel around the Canary Islands as ferries operate between Lanzarote and nearby islands such as Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura.
