Unwind in Enchanting Places During Your Lanzarote Holidays

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

An island declared by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve in the late 20th century, Lanzarote is a part of the Canary Islands archipelago and is located off the North African coast. It attracts plenty of tourists annually from different parts of the globe owing to its pleasant climate and beautiful natural surroundings. You'll get to witness some unique landscapes on this Spanish island, formed mainly due to the volcanic eruptions in the past. While enjoying your holiday in this island destination, you'll also get to explore some charming beaches, natural pools, and a variety of delicacies from the local cuisine.

The best time to enjoy your Lanzarote holidays is the spring and autumn season, as both these seasons are characterised by pleasant daytime temperatures that allow you to indulge in sightseeing and other outdoor activities. This region faces some heat owing to its location near the western part of Africa and the Sahara Desert. However, the Canary Current and the north-easterly winds keep the temperatures in this part of the world moderate and warm. It is a good idea to protect yourself from the sun while visiting the beach areas, as the intensity of the sun can be easily misjudged with the presence of sea breezes.

Your time spent on this gorgeous Spanish island would give you the opportunity to explore some fascinating places. One of them is Timanfaya National Park, which has some spectacular landscapes that were created by the volcanoes. Another great place to explore is a cave system called the 'Jameos del Agua Caves'. This cave system also houses some interesting attractions like an auditorium, a restaurant, and a wonderful pool. Famara Beach is one of the best beaches in Lanzarote with a vast stretch of majestic sands and some excellent hostels, surf cafes, and bars nearby.

During your holiday on this island, you can also visit the Papagayo Beach to enjoy snorkelling, swimming, and other activities. A trip to this beach can also be combined with trips to other beaches nearby, such as Playa Pozo, Playa de Afe, and Playa de la Cera. A boat ride from the northern coast of the island would take you to the serene isle of La Graciosa. It is home to a small population and is far from the hustle-bustle of crowds witnessed in many other parts of Lanzarote. Don't miss visiting La Geria, which is renowned for its cultivation of grapes and producing some top-quality wines. You'll also get the chance to taste some of the popular varieties of wine during your visit to this district.

Lanzarote also delights its visitors with a wide range of dishes from the Canarian cuisine. The most popular among them is Papas Arrugadas, which comprises small potatoes boiled in sea water or salty water without peeling off their skins. You'll often find them served with the red and green Mojo sauces. Estofado is another delectable dish from the local cuisine, which is prepared using pieces of meat along with vegetables and chickpeas. You'd also like to try Gofio, made using toasted maize flour.
