Lanzarote holidays transport you the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago of the coast of North-west Africa. It is an extremely attractive island which owes much to the influence of architect Cesar Manrique. The tourist industry is well-developed here but building regulations are strict and all accommodation must be in keeping with the island. High rise is forbidden and the dwellings are white with either brown, blue or green doors and shutters. Lanzarote is volcanic in origin and has the most fantastic scenery and in places, an alien looking landscape.
Lanzarote holidays are popular with a wide range of visitor as the variety of resorts and recreational facilities cater for all age ranges and interests. They suit families with young children looking for a break on a sandy beach where the sun is never too fierce and the waters are clear and calm. Choose your resort with care because although there are a number of sandy beaches, much of the coastline is rocky with rugged cliffs and sheltered coves. You'll find a variety of water sports available from the main beaches. Couples of all ages are attracted by the relaxed atmosphere and the slow pace of life while young adults looking for lively entertainment can find a party atmosphere in resorts such Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca where the bars and discos continue well into the night.
Hotels, apartments and villas provide high standards of accommodation with tariffs catering for most budgets. The vast number of bars and pubs, restaurants and bistros, cafes and fast food outlets serve a wide variety of cuisine that satisfies even the most conservative palate. The low tax status of the Canary Islands means the bargains abound. Lanzarote has many shops that more than satisfy those who enjoy a little retail therapy. The Sunday market in Teguise is not to be missed. You need to make an early start as it begins in the early morning and closes at two in the afternoon.
Make the most of your low-cost Lanzarote holiday by visiting some of the island's tourist attractions. If you only take one trip, make it to the Timanfaya National Park. It is a fascinating journey through a landscape that is like no other on earth. The temperature just a few yards below the surface reaches between 400 and 600 degrees Celsius. This is demonstrated by water being poured into a hole and almost immediately, steam shoots out of the ground. The restaurant cooks over a grill using the heat from the volcano. Another interesting trip is to the caves. Choose either Jameos del Agua or the Cave of Los Verdes both of which treat you to a spectacular underground world.
