Lanzarote is located amidst an astonishing volcanic landscape of lava-baked hills, fiery craters and desert terrain. Despite its harsh landscape, the easternmost Canary Island boasts beautiful and relaxing white sandy beaches, coupled with a promise of adventure in the spectacular Green Caves and the intriguing Timanfaya National Park. Whether you are looking for cheap flights or holidays to Lanzarote they come with guaranteed balmy sunshine, a fascinating natural history and friendly resorts beside a glittering coastline.
The late artist Cesar Manarique devoted much of his later life to protecting Lanzarote from the environmental impact of the rapidly expanding tourism industry. As a result the skyline remains unblemished by high-rise constructions and even the most modern resorts retain a traditional building style. Each of the island's resorts has its own charming personality and offers a choice of cheap package holidays to Lanzarote. Puerto del Carmen is the longest established resort on the island and offers a wide range of accommodation, from budget hotels to impressive luxury villas. Conveniently located just a 10-minute drive from Arrecife Airport, the former tiny village stretches over 6km of golden sand, lapped by some of the most tranquil waters in the Atlantic ocean. There are several diving centres and windsurfing centres for travellers looking for a more active Lanzarote holiday, and every spring the national IronMan triathlon brings the best in international sports athletes to this bustling resort.
On the southwest coast of the island lies the exclusive resort of Puerto Calero, with a marina protected by mountain ranges and the neighbouring island of Fuenteventura. Puerto Calero offers a more relaxed pace for a Lanzarote holiday, with excellent boutique shops and fantastic cuisine, whilst fishing enthusiasts can try their hand at catching marlin and blue-fin tuna. The fastest growing resort in Lanzarote is Playa Blanca in the southern tip of island and is the perfect place for a tranquil beach break. The sheltered bays are ideal for children to swim safely, whilst the promenade between the beaches offer spectacular views across the Bocaina Straits.
If you're looking for lively nightlife, Costa Teguise caters for all entertainment tastes. Visitors to this vibrant resort can also enjoy a range of water sports, with windsurfing a major pastime for both locals and tourists alike. There are a variety of schools available, offering courses to suit most levels of experience. Costa Teguise is also currently the only golf course on the island, with eighteen holes to enjoy in the sun all year round. Those looking to escape the beaten track can hire a car at the airport and take a road trip through the numerous picturesque villages scattered across the island. The capital Arrecife is also a great choice for a cheap Lanzarote holiday, with towering palm trees, charming souvenir shops and San Gabriel museum to explore.
