A popular destination for Brits, Germans, Scandinavians and a host of other Europeans, Lanzarote is a bustling little tourist island that basks in temperatures that range between 20 and 30 degrees centigrade from the beginning of the year all the way through to August. Make sure you are all packed for your Lanzarote holiday leaving tomorrow or maybe in a few days time. Either way, you best have a busy schedule to keep you occupied for the length of your stay unless you plan to do some serious sun-soaking in which case a high-factor suncream may be all you need!
So if you are lucky enough to have found a last minute Lanzarote holiday online, where will you start? What will you do? If you’re anything like me, you won’t be wanting to waste time so you need an agenda and you need it fast!
Things to do on a Lanzarote Holiday
The most easterly island of the Canary archipelago, this dormant volcanic island (there has not been an eruption since 1824) boasts the Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua cave systems that make up part of the longest lava tunnels in the world.
During previous centuries when Lanzarote was a favourite pit-stop for pirates, locals would hide down in these grottos to avoid being taken as slaves. Guided tours are available at both locations.
If you prefer to stay above ground, the same volcanic action that created the lava tunnels are also responsible for much of Lanzarote’s dramatic ‘lunar’ landscape and rock formations. Consider a bus tour of the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya if a bit of geology takes your fancy!
Like its sister islands, Tenerife and Gran Canaria, the main beaches are located near the tourist resorts but with a little island exploration you can stumble upon quiter coves and beaches.
The main beaches include Playa Grande which is over 1km long, Playa Chica which sports plenty of water activities and is situated in the bustling town of Puerto Del Carmen and the Playa Blanca.
Other Lanzarote Attractions
Other great attractions include the Mirador del Rio looking-point from where you can get a spectacular view of the ocean and nearby island of La Graciosa, the Santa Barbara Castle, the Whale and Dolphin Museum a relatively new attraction and the former house of Egyptian actor Omar Sharif (of Dr. Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia fame) that he apparently lost in a game of cards!
