How to Reach Lanzarote


  • By Air: The Island’s sole airport, the Lanzarote Airport is situated to the west of the capital city of Arrecife. Flights from mainland Spain disembark here. Companies such as Islas Airways & Binter Canarias have flights running between the Canary Islands.
  • By Boat: Passenger ferries ply between the various Canary Islands as well as from mainland Spain.


  • By Bus: Busses run in a loop around the island. However, the frequency is less and the stops are far apart.
  • By Car: Renting a car is the best way to explore the island.
  • By Taxi: Taxis can be hired and are relatively cheap.
  • By Bicycle: Bicycles are available on rent. However, during certain months of the year, it gets very windy and hence it can get risky to cycle around the island.
