Useful information about Lanzarote
Lazing on a black sand beach
The south of Lanzarote is the perfect destination for your holiday, with its beautiful stretches of fine white sand. But this island dedicated to idleness and seaside pleasures also has many black beaches, a natural phenomenon linked to the intense local volcanic activity.
Driving through a nest of volcanoes
A small paradise for amateur vulcanologists, the Timanfaya Natural Park bears witness to the intense eruptive activity that has shaped the raisons-de-partirisland's breathtaking scenery over the centuries. The 14-kilometre-long Volcanoes Route, which is a bus ride, is a must not to be missed.
Surfing in the wind
Nicknamed the Hawaii of Europe, Lanzarote makes surfers happy all year round. Varied enough to suit all levels, the main spots are located in the north of the island, with beaches constantly battered by the trade winds. Favourite for the Famara bay, dominated by the Risco mountain.
Taste the fruit of the vine
Enhanced by its black soil, the Lanzarote vineyard covers almost 2000 hectares. It is characterized by its unique bodega culture and its famous Malvasia wine. To taste it, head to one of Spain's oldest estates, El Grifo, which also houses a pretty little wine museum.
Discover an archipelago of contrasts
Visiting Lanzarote is diving into a beautiful archipelago full of contrasts. From the capital’s harbor, embark for a quick crossing to Fuerteventura. Located in the South of Lanzarote, next to the African coast, this island will undoubtedly seduce you by the beauty of its cliffs and its creeks surrounded by a turquoise sea.
