Lanzarote

Lanzarote

This dramatic island is a serene blend of arts, culture and beach life. Top up your tan on the Blue Flag beach of Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen, before grabbing a fresh seafood platter for lunch in one of the many beachside eateries on offer, all washed down with traditional El Grifo wine. If you love getting lost in culture while on holiday, there’s plenty of attractions here to explore, including artist César Manrique’s stylish house, complete with modern art gallery, and the island’s own cactus garden. Nature lovers will relish exploring the volcanic landscape of Timanfaya National Park, which offers day trips and local tours.
