10 things to do on your holiday in Lanzarote

On Lanzarote holidays there are always plenty of activities to do and fantastic places to visit. This wonderful island has something to offer for everybody. Get inspired and start preparing for your next holiday right here.

1. Volcanoes

In the western part of Lanzarote, you will find the Timanfaya National Park. Due to the dry climate and lack of erosion, the landscape has stayed unchanged since the eruptions in 1730 and 1824. On your Lanzarote holiday, this is a must-visit to explore the iconic lava-covered landscapes.

2. Sandy beaches

In beautiful contrast to the iconic volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote, you can also find a selection of harmonious beaches. Let the white sand beaches on the island's east coast set the scene for a day to enjoy the sun and see the beautiful marine life the island also has to offer. Spend a few days finding your favourite beach, maybe down in the crystal-clear waters of Papagayo or in the quiet coves on the island of La Graciosa. 

3. Spectacular views

On your holiday in Lanzarote, take care not to miss out on the stunning views from Mirador Del Rio. From the top, peek through the telescopes and see if you can spot the islets of Montana Clara and Alegranza. If you are brave enough, find your way to the edge of the balcony and look straight down the 400-metre drop below! 

4. Bike tours

Every year, Club La Santa hosts the toughest IRONMAN in the world. Due to wind and altitude, the 180 km bike ride around the island sets the scene for a challenging tour of the hidden gems of Lanzarote. On your Lanzarote holiday, you don’t need to go to the extreme, but there are many bike routes on offer for all levels - both for mountain bikes and road bikes. 

5. Wine tasting

Did you know that Lanzarote is the home of award-winning wine? At first glance, the volcanic landscape doesn’t seem like a place where anything could grow, but the volcanic ash “picón” covers the soil, captures moisture, and gives the vines the perfect conditions to grow. During your holiday, stop by some of the vineyards and have a taste.

6. Shopping in Teguise

Every Sunday from 09:00 to 14:00, you can experience the lively Teguise Market. The entire village of Teguise is transformed into a big bustling marketplace filled with locals selling everything from handicrafts and artwork to handbags. After enjoying some traditional Canarian folklore in the town square, find one of the lovely cafés for a coffee and cake.

7. Day trip to La Graciosa

Just 30 minutes by boat from Lanzarote, you find the island of La Graciosa with golden sand beaches, a small fishing village and paths you can only access walking or cycling. With very few cars on the island, tranquillity and relaxation are keywords. This is your chance to unwind in a setting surrounded by nature. It’s a perfect getaway to a sanctuary of beautiful beaches, slow living, and quality time on your Lanzarote holiday. 

8. Attractions by Cesar Manrique

Artist Cesar Manrique has made a beautiful mark on his home island. His purpose was to integrate the iconic natural scenery of Lanzarote with architecture. Driving north from the airport in Arrecife, you can spot the Al Campesino, the famous statue that is his tribute to the hard-working people in the fields.

Jameos Del Agua is the remains of a volcanic tube that Manrique transformed into a beautiful experience with gardens, a pool, a restaurant, and a museum.

9. Explore the Cuevas de los Verdes

Beneath the sunny surface of Lanzarote, you can find the impressive mythological green caves. In ancient times, the lava caves worked as the perfect hiding place for locals when the island was invaded or attacked by pirates. The beautiful colour of the caves is a hidden treasure and one of the reasons why the place was voted “Travellers’ choice 2021” on Trustpilot.

10. Surf the waves

Famara beach in the north-western part of Lanzarote is the place to be if you want to surf during your holiday. The waves at the 5 km long beach are perfect for beginner and intermediate surfers. Placed in the Nature Reserve of the archipelago "Chinijo", the mountains offer a spectacular view of the beautiful La Graciosa. In Famara village, you can find a variety of cosy cafés to wrap up a great day of surfing.
