Lanzarote Holidays Guide
Lanarote has long been known for its sunshine, nightlife and ability to keep families happy under the sun, whether it's summer or winter. For that reason, holidays in Lanzarote have grown in popularity over the years.
Whilst Arrecife is the main town, port and airport, head out to one of the many popular resorts around the island to make the most of your holiday. Whether you're after the busy town of Puerto del Carmen, or the much quieter north coast of Lanzarote.
Getting to, from and around Lanzarote
Being such a popular destination in both summer and winter, Lanzarote's year round sunshine attracts tourists and airlines in all months. From the UK you'll find direct flights from most airports including Gatwick, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow, as well as more local airports such as Cardiff and Leeds Bradford in the popular summer months.
Include a resort transfer within the cost of your holiday or book a taxi or car transfer separately to and from Arrecife airport. The price you pay will depend on where you are travelling and whether you book in advance or pay for your journey on arrival.
Things to do in Lanzarote
Of course, the beaches and sunshine are what most people visit Lanzarote for. However, there are a number of activities and day trips you can enjoy for when you want to do something a bit different than just laze around by the pool.
Why not try a trip to Timanfaya National Park? Located on the west coast of Lanzarote, Timanfaya offers some dramatic scenery, but most impressive of all is the sheer temperature of the land, owed to the volcanic activity that takes place underneath the island. Temperatures just a few centimetres below the surface can reach as high as 100C.
Where to stay in Lanzarote
The main popular resorts of Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife spread across the south coast of Lanzarote and are ideal for those who want easy access to beaches, bars and the hustle and bustle of built up resorts.
Playa Blanca in the south of the island is a little quieter and more relaxed but still with a little nightlife for when you want to venture out.
Quieter still is Puerto Calero, a small town west of Puerto del Carmen and only 15 minutes from Lanzarote Airport. Offering a marina and some excellent restaurants, this chic and quieter resort is still only a ten minute drive from Puerto del Carmen so you have easy access if you want a livelier night out.
