Welcome to Lanzarote
With its sun-baked volcanic hills and beaches, it’s no surprise that Lanzarote is a vacation favorite. The northernmost Canary Island, its moon-like landscapes—celebrated in its UNESCO Biosphere Reserve listing—offer an intriguing backdrop for holidaymakers enjoying beach resorts such as Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise, and Playa Blanca. Leave these hotspots for camel rides in crater-strewn Timanfaya National Park, forays into whitewashed villages, wine tastings in La Geria’s vineyards, and tours of late artist César Manrique’s futuristic lava-bubble home. For outdoor adventurers, surfing, snorkeling, sailing, and cycling top the things-to-do-in-Lanzarote list.
