Lanzarote holidays from
Lunar landscapes and luxurious beaches
Lose yourself in Lanzarote
It’s easy to see why Lanzarote is known as the Hawaii of Europe – everything from its ethereal lunar landscapes and volcanic vineyards, to bubbling lava lakes and astonishing craters offer a glimpse into the island’s volcanic past. Maybe it's also got something to do with its balmy climate, where temperatures rarely dip below the mid-20s, thanks to its geographic location closer to Morocco than mainland Spain.
Look in any direction from Castillo de San Gabriel, on the tiny Islet Los Ingleses, for Arrecifie’s whitewashed buildings, sloped terraces and stunning Atlantic views. Pass the unmistakable beaches of El Golf, with its ubiquitous lava rocks and extraordinary black volcanic sands, or pull up at the pearl white beaches of Playa del Papagayo, nestled in the Los Ajaches Nature Park. Follow the coast round through La Geria valley – with its cratered moonscapes that harvest sun ripened Malvasia grapes in the arid climate. Book your flights to Lanzarote, to discover the hidden gems that await.

Lanzarote holiday FAQs
Make the most of your Lanzarote holiday
Discover so much more than fabulous beaches and thriving tourist resorts. This beautiful island has something for everyone, including culture-loving couples, fun-seeking families and outdoor sport enthusiasts.
What are the best things to do in Lanzarote?
1. Tour The Museo Atlántico, Europe’s only underwater gallery in the depths of Playa Blanca. Witness the incredible lifelike sculptures by Jason de Caires Taylor which resemble an underwater botanical garden and remind viewers to protect our oceans for future generations.
2. Immerse yourself in Lanzarote’s volcanic beauty at Timanfaya National Park, which is pockmarked by more than 100 Montañas de Fuego (mountains of fire). Chow down steaming meat and fish dishes cooked to perfection on a cast iron grill over a pit at El Diablo.
3. Sip traditional wines at La Geria, Lanzarote’s most recognised vineyard region. The vines within this protected area grow deep within volcanic pits, which protect them from the wind and provide a unique blend of nutrients. Why not enjoy a sparkling afternoon, sampling Lanzarote’s Malvasía wine – known for its aromatic, sweet honey notes.
4. Soak up the sun at Playa del Papagayo. This unspoilt Lanzarote beach is famous for its idyllic location – nestled in a natural park, framed by staggering cliffs and clear turquoise waters. Roll out your beach towels and unpack a picnic spread, while you enjoy splendid views of neighbouring island, Fuerteventura.
5. Dine at Jameos del Agua, designed by esteemed Spanish artist, César Manrique. This quaint restaurant is tucked inside the depths of a volcanic cave with a gleaming blue lake. The auditorium has impressive acoustics and hosts concerts, theatre productions and an annual film festival.
What are the best all-inclusive Lanzarote holidays?
Sandos Papagayo is the only 24-hour all-inclusive hotel on the island, with an assortment of activities to keep you entertained – from themed days at the kids’ club to sports for teens and archery for adults. Families will love Iberostar Selection Lanzarote Park for its exclusive kids’ areas – including a splash pool and mini disco. For added luxury, adults can upgrade to a Star Prestige room that allows access to the Star Prestige restaurant, chill-out zone and snack bar.

Then, return to your deluxe room, which has a fully stocked minibar as part of your package holiday to Lanzarote.
Where are the best Lanzarote villas to rent?
Lanzarote luxury villas overlook breathtaking beaches and the staggering volcanic landscape. Choose from family-friendly Playa Blanca or the lively Puerto del Carmen.
The southernmost town of Playa Blanca is ideal for families, with its wide array of self-catered accommodation. Absorb your daily dose of vitamin sea whilst sunbathing at any of the three sheltered bays.
