Holidays to Lanzarote

Discover fiery Lanzarote

The Canary Islands are one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations - and none more so than the paradise island of Lanzarote, the Canary groups eastern-most sibling. Born of enormous volcanic eruptions some 15 million years ago, Lanzarote island has a 214 km coastline, with just 16 km of beach - but what 16 kilometres!

Lanzarote is a touch more upmarket than many other resort islands - over development here means the weekly market has more than two stalls selling beach towels. But don't let its quiet reputation fool you - the locals saved their passion for ensuring the very development that has marred so many other Spanish resort islands didn't get a look in. The man credited with keeping Lanzarote under developed has a foundation in his name and an exhibition space you must go and see.

Lanzarote has beautiful, wide beaches - many of which on the Atlantic side are brilliant for action packed water sports like surfing, kite surfing and boogie boarding. The island boasts excellent walking and cycling tracks. Fly to Lanzarote with Holiday Supermarket and make sure you enquire about the hotels in Playa Blanca - they're rather special!

The restaurants are of high standard - fresh food, great chefs and the pleasures of small town harbour front cafes. There is a number of good bars and clubs across the island, mostly in the resort hotels. Some of the best beaches are a short drive from your hotel, but the effort is well worth it - no crowds and golden sands. Check the Lanzarote holiday deals now - you won't regret a moment in this beautifully unspoilt place.

Hints and tips for your Lanzarote


Eating out in Lanzarote – cheap, expensive and everything in between

Fresh seafood and plenty of vegetables is the order of the day in Lanzarote. Typical Canary cuisine includes rabbit, kid and lamb and you'll find plenty of restaurants serving these dishes up. Even if you've booked an all inclusive in Lanzarote, it's worth checking out the restaurants below.

The budget options - your best choice - and it's a great one - is Bogavante alongside the volcanic beach at El Golfo on the southern tip of the island. You'll truly wonder whether it's worth paying any more than this delightful restaurant charges for Paella, salad and a bottle of local red. The views are sublime, the service superb.

Mid price options - Mesón La Frontera is a local favourite, so you may have to book ahead and it's well worth any slight table delay you may incur. It's in the pretty inland village of Haría where you can ruminate on the views across the valley as you tuck into steak  and lamb.

Splurge - set in the hills looking out across Puerto del Carme, Le Tegala is chic and sophisticated. Stylish waiters will guide your menu choices with deft assistance on the wine selection. This is your big night out for the holiday and you won't regret it as you savour the cuttlefish stew, the rabbit or the slow cooked lamb.



Things not to miss

Lanzarote - beaches, fantastic action sports and volcanic scenery

Lanzarote was saved by overdevelopment by a fellow named César Manrique, an artist, architect and environmentalist. He's by and large responsible for the eco-friendly feel to the place and the museum dedicated to his achievements is in his old home. The museum also contains works by his renowned contemporaries, including Tàpies, Millares, Picasso and Saura.

Timanfaya National Park  - this moonscape plain is something to see! You take a guided tour through the rocky terrain and head up to the mountain top where a restaurant will cook your meal on a grill using heat from the live volcano.  

Famara  - is Lanzarote's famous surfing and windsurfing beach. The Atlantic winds beat in across the afternoon swell and the resulting waves draw in surfers from around the world. Or you can just idle the day away on the golden sands...

La Graciosa - is a tiny island off the northern coast and you get there by daily ferry. There are no roads on the island, just waterside restaurants and lots of hiking and biking trails.

Teguise - is Lanzarote's most delightful historic town. Founded in the 15th century, the tiny laneways and beautiful mansions vie with cobblestoned roads for Kodak moments and the weekly market (every Sunday) is a must see.

Weather in Lanzarote

What to wear, when to go

The weather in the Canaries is tempered by the cool sea breezes all year round. Even the hot summer months get some welcome relief in the late afternoon as the winds come in off the Atlantic. It's worth mentioning that NASA recently declared the Canaries as having the best climate in the world. Think a balmy 22 - 30 C most months with warmer temps in the summer period. There's no real rainy season - just the occasional wild storm and a quick check of the Lanzarote weather forecast before you leave will warn of any impending big storm.
