Lanzarote Holiday - Lanzarote Spain
Lanzarote is a warm and sun-drenched island, with a number of of the finest beaches in the Canary Islands and impressive inland volcanic scenery, is just 120km off the coast of Africa and the tepid winds that come from there are perfect for windsurfing. Whether you wish to unwind on warm sands and sit in the sun or take pleasure in some terrific water sports, Lanzarote is just the thing there are many scuba-diving schools, particularly at Costa Teguise. Of course, if all you desire is the odd cooling swim, the clear blue waters are certain to lure you off of your sunbed. For a great suntan, head for the nearly abandoned coves in the region of the Papagayo peninsula near the cape from Playa Blanca's sandy beaches.
If you're not aware of Cesar Manrique prior to your holiday in Lanzarote, you will definitely remember him after. A local artist, he made sure that apartments and hotels should remain low-rise and that local houses should have cheerful green shutters and be white-washed. Wherever you go on this sunny island, you'll find his name and influences from time to time.
Decide on your resort with care. If you would like to spend days lavishly sunbathing and nights generously entertained, Puerto del Carmen is energetic until the small hours. Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca is a little lower key - a few restaurants and bars are pleasurably welcoming but most holiday makers decide on relaxing evenings centered around their apartments or hotels and Playa de los Pocillos are Matagorda town on the outskirts of Puerto del Carmen on the coastal road. Perfect if you need a more chilled out mood where you go on holiday but still want trouble-free contact to all the services of Puerto del Carmen, the biggest resort.
While you may agree that one of Lanzarote's major attributes is its breathtaking beaches, do not leave and neglect to visit inland. The astounding lunar-like scenery of the Timanfaya National Park is memorable, with many volcanic cones. For an unforgettable experience try a ride on a camel into the mountain. A matchless option for water sports, sunshine and beaches.
