The canary islands are a real popular holiday destination. With all year sunshine and a short four-hour flight from the UK it appeals to the masses. Lanzarote is a destination proving to be a perfect choice for couples and families alike year on year.
But Lanzarote holidays can be as exciting or relaxing as you want it to be. There is plenty to do for the active couple or family. Here are five things you can see do in Lanzarote on your next holiday adventure.
Timanfaya National Park
The Timanfaya National Park tends to be the most famous attraction on the Island. This is where you can have a tour of the volcano fields. During a bus tour of this amazing terrain, you will witness panoramic views of the island as well as some breathtaking scenery. It’s also said that if you ever wanted to experience the moon without leaving Earth, then this is the place to go. Timanfaya has a look that strongly resembles the moon surface. The park also hosts a restaurant where they cook the food from the volcanic heat. It is a great day out.
If you want to do some serious shopping, then you must visit the biggest outdoor market in the Canaries. The Teguise weekly market. Sitting in the island’s centre, Teguise was Lanzarote’s capital until 1852. It is famed for its Sunday morning stall-fest, which draws in a huge amount of tourists. With over 360 stands full of exciting wonders you won’t get bored. Just make sure you haggle, though. If you are done with the shopping, then Teguise is a pretty town full of little-cobbled streets and pretty churches. You will find a wealth of things to do to keep you occupied.
Jameos Del Agua
These underground caves are the perfect place to explore the volcanic rock. There is a hidden gem where you can spot the albino crabs. There is a lovely bar and restaurant here to where you can enjoy cocktail in style.
If you’re looking for outstanding natural beauty, you’ll find it in the Papagayo beaches. Just a 15-minute drive from Playa Blanca. They’re completely unspoilt, with nothing but imposing cliffs and white sand to distract you. It definitely is unspoilt as you would need actually to take a packed lunch with you. But you don’t see many unspoilt beauties these days so it was worth a visit.
Aquapark at Costa Teguise
Prepare to get wet on this day out. This is Lanzarote’s only waterpark. You will be able to spend your day slipping and sliding along the tubes, flumes and rapids. Here, you’ll find a white-knuckle Kamikaze and eight racing slides. There are some children’s slides, a big pool and a special splash area for water babies. The perfect day out for all.
I hope this list has inspired you to book your next holiday to Lanzarote. There is plenty to do and see. This is just a selection of what is on offer. Enjoy your visit to Lanzarote.
