The beautiful island of Lanzarote is a holiday paradise with gorgeous beaches and pristine warm waters that can be enjoyed all year round.

Why do so many people choose Lanzarote as their number one holiday destination? The answer is simple… it is outstandingly beautiful, has great subtropical weather, the lunar landscape is extraordinary, the subtropical beaches are sublime. The riches on offer are endless…

The island is bursting with striking contrasts. Although the whole Canarian archipelago is volcanic, it is on Lanzarote where the recent volcanic history is most evident. There are around 300 peaks, the majority of which are extinct but some are just taking a nap…

The island, with almost 140.000 inhabitants, is full of life, with its own extraordinary and unmistakable character. Many Lanzaroteños did not give up following the tremendous eruptions in the 18th and early 19th century, which devastated their fertile land. Instead, they found an ingenious way of cultivating the barren lava fields and made every effort to preserve their natural heritage, culture and traditions.

Lanzarote is also a unique example of how one single man can have so much influence on the landscape, developing it for tourism while maintaining its natural beauty and history. César Manrique is hailed as the island’s internationally renowned son. He left his signature everywhere… as sculptor, painter, architect and environmentalist. Except for one hotel in Arrecife, all buildings on the island are low-rise – not taller than a Canary palm – and you won’t find any advertising hoardings at the roadsides either. Because of its natural value and beauty, Lanzarote was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1993.
