Beaches are synonyms to the Canaries. Lanzarote, a small volcanic island in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Morocco, has a great deal in its ‘pocket’ to offer. Right from the black lava sand to fine golden crystals, it has everything on its lap. It offers year-round warm weather and an astonishing volcanic landscape. With an average temperature of around 22 degrees Celsius, it sometimes welcomes its guests with stormy winds.
It features a great number of beaches and its varied beaches offer you varied activities. If you’re fond of surfing, blindly head to Caleta de Famara and Caleta Caballo- the two best surfing spots in Europe. Windsurfing lovers shall go for the Los Cucharas beach in Costa Teguise. Game fishing can be done at Puerto del Carmen. If none of the above is your taste, just go on a sailing trip or book a cruise from Orzola to the islands of La Graciosa or Alegranza. If you’re willing to do something exclusive and unreal, join a submarine excursion from Puerto Calero to encounter Lanzarote’s magnificent marine world. It offers a wide array of some other marine adventures as well. Right from water-sports and scuba diving to game fishing and whale watching, it has it all.
Don’t miss its unusual Cactus garden that features more than 10,000 cacti from all around the world. You would also love to hangout amidst green trees at El Bosquecillo capturing panoramic views all over. It is also home to various vineyards, the most famous being La Geria lying on the foot of several volcanoes. Lanzarote is quite rich in art and culture as well. If its César Manrique Foundation homes paintings by Spanish artists and a garden built into an old lava flow, then it also has a tunnel, Cueva De Los Verdes, formed by lava. If you love adventure, I think you won’t mind standing on a clifftop to encounter the stunning view of black-sand volcanic Crater Lake.
Lanzarote is famous for its fresh seafood and distinctive potatoes but that doesn’t mean there are no options for vegetarians. Vegetarians and vegans can feed their stomachs at Blooming Cactus, whereas head towards Mirador de las Salinas for the fresh seafood and Casa Emiliano for the tempting local food.
Lanzarote is a real surprise: Part of the volcanic Canary Islands, home to around 150,000 people, a Spanish archipelago located in the Atlantic Ocean off the northwestern coast of Africa, the arid island welcomes some 3 million tourists a year.
