Lanzarote’s must see is The Timanfaya National Park, with moon like landscape and the famous Cueva de los Verdes.

Los Hervideros is one of Lanzarote's most visited natural attractions, located on the west coast of the municipality of Yaiza.

So if you are not conditioned by school holidays, try to plan your arrival to the island outside of that period to get a better price for flights and accommodation.
Haria is a small but beautiful village in the north of Lanzarote, with a population barely over 1000 people. If you're coming to the island, we absolutely recommend coming here for a visit to one of Lanzarote's most authentic villages.
September is our favorite month to come to Lanzarote. The weather in September is still hot, but not quite as hot as in August. Also, after the first week of September passes the big summer crowds start to disappear, as schools start the new year all across Europe. Just don't imagine that you'll have the island all to yourself, since Lanzarote is a year-round destination, and it's lively and busy even in winter.
July is the month when temperatures start to rise well above 30°C constantly during the daytime, although July is not the warmest month of the year. That prize is reserved for August, which is the hottest month in Lanzarote, but July is not so far behind in terms of high temperatures and sunshine hours.
August is the hottest month in Lanzarote and there's no doubt about it. July is not that far behind, but August really takes the lead in terms of high temperatures here in Lanzarote.
