What to do
There are so many things to see and do in Lanzarote during your holidays. The beauty and diversity of its landscape present us with such in demand places to visit such as the National Park of Timanfaya with its Mountains of Fire, El Golfo with its natural green lagoon, Los Jameos del Agua, Las Salinas de Janubio and the Mirador del Rio. A must are Lanzarote’s stunning beaches, small coves and incredible unspoilt hidden corners are equally perfect to enjoy a day at the beach just as much as for water sports and boat trips. Lanzarote offers a wealth of cultural possibilities, which are perfectly integrated with nature, thanks to the great contribution of Cesar Manrique, a local artist of international acclaim.
Parque Nacional de Timanfaya
The park is the only protected area of the island which boasts the acclaim of National Park and has more than 25 volcanos, such as Las Montanas de Fuego, Montana Rajada and the Caldera del Corazoncillo. The impressive silhouette of the volcano, the absence of vegetation together with the variety of colours: reds, oranges, blacks and ocres confer the extraordinary beauty of the landscape.
There are so many beautiful beaches to be found on the island and especially around the Playa Blanca area, some of the most stunning are the Playas de Papagayo, with its contrasting landscapes which make it one of the best picture postcard moments of the island. Both Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo with their white sand and things to enjoy nearby are two of the other most popular.
Charco de los Cliclos – El Golf de Lanzarote
Sat staring at Lanzarote’s green lagoon is a true delight owing to the spectacular setting of the surrounding landscape. As such it is a naturally formed amphitheatre, facing the ocean, formed by the erosion of an ancient crater, permanently being part of the same and forming an emerald green lake of some metres depth, which connects to the Atlantic Ocean by means of its subterranean caves.
Fundación César Manrique
One of the highlights to see on the island is the great cultural centre of Lanzarote, located in the Taro de Tahiche which houses, as well as the works of art of the renowned Lanzarote artist who has had such an important influence upon the development of the island’s culture, but also his personal collection of works by Picasso, Miro, Chilida and Klee amongst others.
