If you´re planning a break abroad this year then take a closer look at Lanzarote. As there are plenty of good reasons for visiting this Spanish owned island – which is part of the Canarian archipelago – located just off the North West Coast of Africa.Wonderful Weather
If you´re looking for a sun packed break then Lanzarote should head your list of possible destinations. Thanks to the island´s location the climate here is simply superb and is often likened to an eternal spring. Indeed in centuries past the Canaries were often refered to as the Fortunate Islands for this very reason.
During the winter months you can enjoys days on the beach with temperatures reaching well into the low 20´s Celsius. Whilst in the summer months the mercury can rise as high as 35 degrees. Best of all there is hardly ever any rain – providing a great contrast to the damp and gloomy climate of the UK.
What´s a holiday without some great beaches to visit? Lanzarote certainly won’t disappoint as there are about 90 beaches here. Many first time visitors expect to find black sand beaches as these are common in the Canaries thanks to their volcanic origin. But that isn’t the case on Lanzarote – and here you can relax on golden sands.
Some sunshine holiday destinations can be – dare we say it – a little bit dull. Take away the weather and there isn’t really much to do. Lanzarote though is nothing like that. As here there are some really incredible visitor attractions, such as the Timanfaya National Park – home to some of the world’s most amazing volcanic scenery. Or the Valley of 1000 Palms, a giant swaying oasis of Canarian palms located in the north of the island.
Lanzarote is also big on unique man made attractions as well as natural wonders. Visit the former home of the local artist Cesar Manrique, built over five bubbles in the lava flow – and you´ll be blown away. Or take in a trip around Teguise, the historic former capital of Lanzarote and home to some ancient architecture dating back to the early 1400´s.
Lanzarote has been welcoming tourists for over fifty years and a as result accommodation standards here are pretty high. You can take your choice from a wide selection of Lanzarote villas – most of which are based in the main holiday resorts. Or check out the growing number of rural options, such as the Finca de Arrieta in the north of the island, where guests can stay in luxury yurts and enjoy organic fruit and veg from the farms own gardens.
Easy To Explore
Lanzarote is a small island – you can drive from one end to the other in about an hour – and this makes exploring it very easy. Petrol is cheap – as is car hire in Lanzarote – so getting around is both easy and affordable.
