Lanzarote Beach Holidays
If you are looking for a beach holiday in the Sun, you should consider Lanzarote as there are some fantastic beaches. It is lovely to go swimming on Lanzarote; the best beaches are generally at the southern end of the island – the Papagayo half of the island but other areas have fabulous stretches of soft sand for sunbathers to enjoy. The Del Reducto beach in Arrecife is a good place to start, the sweeping expanse of soft sand is close to the centre and offers fabulous opportunities for sun bathing, swimming and enjoying water sports. Costa Teguise is blessed with outstanding expanses of sand stretching from one side of the resort to the other, ideal for a Lanzarote beach holiday. Playa Blanca is perfect for a relaxing beach holiday in Lanzarote, the golden sands are great for settling in and immersing yourself in a good read, whilst topping up your tan and taking an occasional dip in the clear water.
Lanzarote Holiday Time
In Lanzarote you can enjoy a wonderful mix of nature, culture and just simple relaxation. Experience the UNESCO Timanfaya National Park, visit the home of the world famous architect César Manrique or spend your days enjoying the sun & sea at the beach. Bargain hunters can find anything from jewellery, souvenirs, paintings and wine at the local markets whilst there are some shopping centres for those craving a bit of retail therapy.
Fresh fish and papas arrugadas – Canary potatoes cooked in salt in their skins – is one of the best dishes to try whilst on holiday in Lanzarote. You can also eat spicy Mojo sauce with the potatoes and try grilling lamb on real volcanic embers. For those who wanting to buy something authentic from the island have a look at the local lacework, baskets or pottery made by the indigenous population, the Guancher.
Sunny Lanzarote Holidays
Holidays are enjoyed in Lanzarote throughout the year as the excellent climate provides warmth even during the cooler winter months. You can expect sunny days whenever you choose to visit the island with between 7-11 hours of sunshine every day, with very little rainfall during the spring, summer and autumn and just a bit more during the winter.
In Puerto del Carmen and Costa Teguise the nightlife is young and lively. It is recommended to try one of the many cocktail lounges found here. Canary Islanders eat late and this influences the nightlife. For that reason, many clubs stay open until breakfast time.
