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 Land of Eternal Spring 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.

The food on Lanzarote is of a very high standard, especially the seafood, freshly plucked from surrounding waters.
