Lanzarote holidays take you to possibly the most popular of the Canary Islands. The island has spectacular scenery with a combination of a volcanic landscape, towering cliffs and golden beaches. Although the island attracts many visitors each year, sympathetic holiday developments have left Lanzarote unscarred. There are no high rise hotels or apartments and the buildings are always white with green, blue or brown doors, window frames and shutters. It therefore remains a very attractive place that exudes a traditional atmosphere. There is plenty to see and do on the island and there are resorts to suit all tastes.Whether you are seeking total relaxation, or wish for active days followed by party nights, there'll be a Lanzarote holiday that fits the bill. With a pleasant year round climate Lanzarote holidays make a perfect winter break.
Lanzarote holidays take you to a very attractive island with good beaches and dramatic scenery. Almost three hundred years ago a cataclysmic event took place. Volcanic eruptions shook the island and the resultant lava flow covered over a third of its area. This has resulted in a unique landscape of lunar-like craters. The most popular tourist attraction on Lanzarote is the Timanfaya National Park where you can experience the heat from the volcano and take a coach trip through the amazing landscape.
While the Lanzarote coastline is fairly rocky, there are plenty of beaches, some of golden sand others of rough volcanic sand, but all washed by clear Atlantic waters. There are long stretches of sandy beaches, ideal for young families and a variety of exciting water sports for the energetic visitor. Hotels, apartments and villas provide accommodation to suit all budgets and restaurants cater for all tastes. Shopping is good with plenty of opportunities for taking advantage of low taxes, and those who enjoy markets will flock to the Teguise Sunday market where they can purchase their holiday gifts and souvenirs.
Visitors should thank the island born artist and architect, Cesar Manrique, who has created so many tourist attractions and has prevented over development in Lanzarote. Much of the island's sightseeing appeals to children, with caves to explore, a water park and a small theme park.
If you are looking for a relaxing break with a guarantee of sunshine at any time of year, a Lanzarote holiday could end your search.
