Lanzarote in pictures: 15 images that will make you want to book right now

17 Dec 2017

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.

It stays hot here all year round. Get the sun on your feet, or wow your colleagues back home with some “hotdog legs” from Puerto del Carmen.

The volcanic landscape wouldn’t strike you as fertile land, but the local wine – from La Geria – is genuinely delicious.

The surrounding seas are brimming with some of the best seafood going. Much of which can be found in and around El Golfo.

The island is surrounded by picture-postcard waters – all clear, blue and beautiful. This picture was taken at Playa Blanca.

If golden sands are more your thing, Lanzarote has that covered too. Here's Playa Papagayo...

You wouldn’t necessarily expect to find palm trees on a volcanic island, but you will.

Should the mood take you, you can hop into a submarine and look some underwater life dead in the eye.


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