The most eastern of all the Canaries, Lanzarote is the closest island to Europe and home to some of the most bizarre, striking, and downright beautiful scenery across the archipelago.
Although you can reach the other islands with relative ease, the main reason to visit Lanzarote is to mix trekking with lazing on the beach. For the latter, look no further than Playa Blanca for a real beach holiday and then make your way inwards to the spectacular Timanfaya National Park.
As well as its impeccable beaches and dramatic interior landscape, the island is full of other attractions, including the largest aquarium in the Canaries, a theme park, a water park, and brilliant nightlife.

The terrain in the Timanfaya National Park is so unique, you may feel as if you’ve just stepped onto some distant planet as opposed to an island in the Atlantic.
Full of incredible hikes, the pick of the bunch has to be a trek to the sensational Fire Mountains. These martian-like landforms have remained unchanged for thousands of years and are a must-see for anyone visiting Lanzarote.
Other features of this park include the mean steaming boreholes, lava gorges, and deep-cut craters. All based around the Islote de Hilario volcano, the park is a wonder of Mother Nature.
The coast of Lanzarote is lined with beaches of the highest quality. And with there being so many, you are sure to find the perfect patch of sand for you. Papagayo has the prestigious title of being the most beautiful beach on the whole island.
Located in the lively Playa Blanca on the southern tip of Lanzarote, here you can bask in the sun with all the other holiday goers before sampling one of the many beachside cafes and bars.
Fancy a more bohemian beach affair? Head back up to the island’s surf mecca, Famara. Surrounded by craggy, pink cliffs, this bay is much quieter and a world away from the resort beaches.
For somewhere in between, try Las Conchas on La Graciosa. Used by both tourists and locals, this beach is very relaxed, with bars and restaurants nearby at Caleta del Sabo.
Being the closest island to the UK, Lanzarote really is the gateway to the rest of the Canaries. All the islands are now interconnected via flights, ferries, and speedily named fast-ferries, making island hopping is much easier than it used to be.
Fuerteventura, with its rich sea life and clear waters, is the closest island and can be easily accessed by ferry from Playa Blanca. While Gran Canaria, an island of sumptuous seafood and vast sand dunes, is one over again.
The quieter, less-touristy islands of La Palma and El Hierro are the furthest away from Lanzarote and although getting there is not impossible, it could take up to three hours by boat and is unlikely to be cheap.
