A holiday in Lanzarote pretty much guarantees everything you want from a sunshine break - spectacular scenery, blissful beaches, fantastic food, and above all else, some spectacular views.

Plus, if you're looking for a winter-sun holiday, Lanzarote is right up there with our favourite destinations. Just a 4-hour flight from the UK, the island is blessed with a year-round subtropical climate — you can expect highs in the low-20s even in winter!

Below you'll find a selection of our favourite things to see and do on the island. If you’re a Lanzarote aficionado and think we’ve missed anything from this collection, feel free to let us know in the comments at the bottom.
