Lanzarote City Guide

When it’s time for that much needed break, there’s no better holiday than a trip to Lanzarote, one of the most popular Canary Islands, just off the coast of Spain. Nothing beats chilling on the beach down in Lanzarote. Make sure you set aside a day or two and head to explore some of Lanzarote’s most scenic coastal attractions. Papagayo Beach and Pocillos Beach are among the best stretches of beach in this coastal location; while Blanca Beach and Puerto del Carmen Beach are also well worth a look.

Of course, it’s not all the beach bum lifestyle. Feel like learning something new in Lanzarote? Make sure you check out the Cesar Manrique Foundation and the Whale and Dolphin Museum. Of the many fascinating museums in the city, these two get the most attention from the travellers.

Tiring of the crowds? Then escape the bustling streets by exploring the nearby nature reserves, such as Timanfaya National Park and Mirador del Rio. Both are great for hiking and birdwatching, and there are even facilities that allow you to enjoy lunch or a drink in the preserves’ beautiful grounds.

Lanzarote is also known for its top notch golfing. Tee off at one the area’s excellent golf courses. Work on your drives and putting and book a few holes at Lanzarote Golf Resort or Costa Teguise Golf Club. What better way to get active while relaxing?

For those holidaying in Lanzarote with children, discover a world of family fun at Rancho Texas Park. Don't miss the chance to visit this fun-filled and engaging attraction, offering ear-to-ear smiles for the young and the young at heart. There are also an abundance of water parks around the island, which offer an ideal way to cool down in the hot Canary Island sun.

Bit of a shopaholic? Indulge in some retail therapy and amble through the boutique shops and big brand stores of the Deiland Shopping Centre. It is a vibrant place packed with fashion, accessories, fresh produce and is great places to eat too.

Why not visit Cactus Garden where visitors can spend time outdoors enjoying the local flora and fauna? It’s a great place for the artists amongst you to pull out your sketch pad, or if you’re not that way inclined just soak up the sunshine. This park is the perfect place to unwind.

Create memories, admire the educational displays and discover a range of animal habitats at Guinate Animal Park, an exciting zoo. Learn about some of the zoo’s more unusual animals and ask about feeding times to see if you can participate.

Lanzarote is an ideal getaway for all the family. Book a trip with Expedia now.
