Lanzarote’s must see is The Timanfaya National Park, with moon like landscape and the famous Cueva de los Verdes. These are underground tunnels where lava used to flow and one should not miss a visit to this unique place. If you are into diving or snorkeling, you can visit the recently opened underwater museum near the coast of Lanzarote.
Lanzarote is one of the smaller islands in the archipelago, but this doesn't mean it falls behind on the weather front. Winters in Lanzarote are mild and warm, as in all the Canaries, so if you're planning a sunny Christmas, Lanzarote might be a great choice.
Christmas in Puerto del Carmen is very different from the usual holiday at home for most of us. You can still expect temperatures to be in their mid-20s °C and, so it will probably be a sunny holiday.
Playa Blanca is the southernmost resort in Lanzarote and probably the most laid back of all. The sunny climate, the beaches and the views make it a great place to spend the winter holidays, especially when back home it's cold and grey.
Lanzarote is the easternmost of the Canary Islands, situated very close to her sister island Fuerteventura. The capital is in Arrecife, but this is not a tourist town so not many people choose to spend their vacation in the capital.
Christmas in Lanzarote is a wonderful experience, with the island all decorated for the holidays and New Year's. So if you want to escape the cold and have a merry and sunny Christmas, Lanzarote might just be the perfect holiday destination for you.
November might not be the warmest month in Lanzarote throughout the year, but it's definitely sunnier and warmer than the UK and mainland Europe.
Los Hervideros is one of Lanzarote's most visited natural attractions, located on the west coast of the municipality of Yaiza. We really loved our visit to Los Hervideros because you can see the true force of nature: strong waves crashing into the volcanic coastline, creating an impressive splash of water that attracts visitors and photographers to this site.
Whether you're looking for a quiet place to relax in the sun or a place to enjoy an active holiday, Lanzarote has it all. The island is in constant change and there are plenty of things to do, even an underwater museum, the first of its kind in Europe.

Famara beach is located on the northwest coast of Lanzarote and provides one of the most epic sceneries on the island, with the Risco de Famara cliffs in the backdrop.
If you're looking for the most beautiful beaches in Lanzarote, then you needn't look further than Playas de Papagayo. Although located far away from any resort on the island, this collection of beaches are the pride and joy of Lanzarote and they are definitely worth a visit while you're on holiday here.
Puerto del Carmen is probably Lanzarote's busiest resort, situated very close to the airport and to the island's capital - Arrecife. If you're staying in Puerto del Carmen and you want to do some holiday shopping, don't miss the local market organized in Varadero square.
Arrecife is the capital of Lanzarote and it's quite a busy town, where not many tourists venture during their holidays. But the carnival in Arrecife is a large and animated event, popular among locals and a great way to experience a night of fiesta among the island's residents.
Playa Blanca is the southernmost resort in Lanzarote and it has grown quite a bit in the last few years, from the sleepy fishing village it once was. If you're planning to spend your holiday in Playa Blanca, you may be wondering what there is to do in the resort and what can you expect in terms of hotels, beaches, restaurants and entertainment.
As the name indicates, Playa Chica is the smaller beach in the lively resort of Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote. But despite its small size compared to the much larger Playa Grande, Playa Chica is widely popular among visitors and locals as well.

October is a relatively peaceful and quiet month in Lanzarote, apart from the week during the midterm holidays, when prices also go up considerably. 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.
