How to Spend 1 Day in Lanzarote

How to Spend 1 Day in Lanzarote

Whether you’re visiting on a day trip from one of the neighboring islands or stopping over as part of an island-hopping cruise, one day in Lanzarote offers just enough time to take in the highlights. Here are some ideas.

Morning: Volcanoes and Vineyards

Start by visiting the island’s star attraction, Timanfaya National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve known for its dramatic volcanic landscapes. The park is only accessible by guided tour, so for the best value, pick one that includes hotel pickup and drop-off, or visit as part of a day tour combined with other popular attractions. Spend the morning exploring the park’s otherworldly landscapes on a 4WD safari, take in incredible views of the Fire Mountains, and perhaps enjoy a camel ride through the lava fields. Close to Timanfaya, stop for lunch in the La Geria wine region, where you can sample Lanzarote’s acclaimed white wines and learn how malvasia grapes are cultivated in the island’s volcanic soils. 

Afternoon: Coastal Views and Caves

Head along the southwest coast, stopping along the way to admire the vibrant green lagoon of El Golfo, visit the Salinas de Janubio salt flats, and take in the views from the sea cliffs of Los Hervideros. Afterwards, zip up to the north coast to explore Jameos del Agua, a lavish resort built around a series of natural lava caves—the masterpiece of local artist and architect César Manrique. It’s a popular spot, so visiting as part of a tour or prebooking skip-the-line tickets is recommended. If you have time, nearby attractions such as the Cactus Garden and the César Manrique Foundation are also well worth a visit.  

Night: Sunset Cruise

Lanzarote’s rocky coastline is most impressive when viewed from the water, and a sunset cruise means that the beaches will be bathed in a golden glow. Set sail from Puerto del Carmen aboard a catamaran, and look out for dolphins and whales as you cruise along the coast. Some cruises include stops to swim and snorkel, as well as cocktails and canapes.
