The beautiful island of Lanzarote is a holiday paradise with gorgeous beaches and pristine warm waters that can be enjoyed all year round.
The island is full of life, with its own extraordinary and unmistakable character. Lanzarote has been in the business of sun, sea and sand breaks since the seventies. It was one of Europe’s first mainstream holiday destinations and helped to invent the classic beach break.
Take one look at the place and you will see what made it the perfect prototype. Like the main resorts of Puerto del Carmen, Playa de los Pocillos, Cosa Teguise and Playa Blanca are hemmed by long ribbons of sand, and their shores are top for watersports.
If you are looking for some light nightlife, Lanzarote will deliver. Just 20 minutes from Playa Blanca, the quaint fishing village of El Golfo has a reputation for having the best fish restaurants in the Canary Islands. Puerto del Carmen is the leader of Lanzarote’s nightlife pack. The Avinda de la Playas is home to a long line of bars and clubs offering music to suit all needs. In Playa Blanca, the liveliest areas are the Centro Commercial Papagayo near Playa Dorada, and the Centro Commercial Punto Limones, near the port. Costa Teguise takes a back seat as far as nightlife is concerned, but there are a few karaoke and cocktail bars around Playa de la Cucharas and Called las Olas.
Lanzarote offers everything you could want for a family holiday, including markets, aquaparks and animal parks.
