Lanzarote Tourism

Lanzarote is a Spanish Island and part of the Canary Islands. The island is situated just off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. A fact that you will find in almost every Lanzarote travel guide is that it is 60 kilometres long and 20 kilometres wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries.

As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is volcanic in origin. To see just how affected the island was during volcanic eruptions, head over to the Timanfaya National Park in Las Palmas while on your trip to Lanzarote. The area appears to be from another world! Many people call it Martian landscape! However, despite the volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has 213 kilometres of coastline and has several beautiful white beaches. With spectacular beaches and volcanic landscapes and with an average annual temperature of 22°, Lanzarote is also known as the Island of eternal spring.

The highlights of your Lanzarote tour include leisurely strolls along beaches, surfing, hiking to volcanic cones and exploring the many shades and phenomena of nature.

Europe's very first Underwater Museum opened on 10th Jan 2017- the Museo Atlantico is best visited from the city of Lanzarote and should totally be a part of your Lanzarote itinerary!
