Planning your next holiday getaway? Whether you’re dreaming of a relaxing, beach-bound escape, paired with a sun-kissed tan, or determined to fill your free time with a myriad of activities, this stunning location has got you covered. From watersports to tourist attractions, here’s a guide to everything you can enjoy in this Spanish paradise!

#1 Relish the breath-taking volcanic landscape of Timanfaya National Park where you can not only experience the sandy depths of the volcano but do this with a camel as your transport of choice! Don’t worry, you won’t be sitting on its hump with the fear of falling off! The seats on either side allow you to take magnificent photos whilst savouring the sunshine! I can assure you, these Camel Rides are a must-do at least once in your life!

#2 Guaranteed fun for all the family, Aquapark Costa Teguise will make sure you have a jam-packed, water-filled day! With an astonishing 20 different waterslides, accompanied by other attractions such as the restaurant and coffee shop, there’s no going wrong with this activity – you can even buy a photo of you on the slide to reminisce on these memories forever!

#3 Why not take on the waves with a Ferry Day Trip to Fuerteventura? With 18 trips daily from Playa Blanca alone, there will always be an opportunity to experience this for yourself throughout your stay. Enjoy the spectacular sights of Lanzarote beaches from a distance, cruising over the tide in luxury style, and discover the town of Corralejo, with its many bars and restaurants on the harbour, in this impressive Canary Island.

#4 If you’re destined for an action-packed, sporty holiday, Scuba Diving will be perfect for you! Whether you’re a complete novice or you’ve taken part in this activity many times, there’s no denying how thrilling it is to discover the underwater depths of this island! The friendly team at Safari Diving Lanzarote, situated in Puerto Del Carmen, will ensure this will be an unforgettable element of your holiday.

#5 The Lanzarote Day Tours, Fundacion Cesar Manrique will no-doubt give you an insight of this wonderful island! Packed with numerous activities such as wine tasting and exploring the Secret Beach Cave of Jameos Del Agua, what more could you want for a day? There is something for everyone on this trip, from relaxing on the beach whilst enjoying the sunshine, to discovering the Green Lake of El Golfo, capturing these fabulous sights.

#6 If you’re desperate for a day or two soaking up the sun with a cocktail and umbrella during your holiday, Playa Dorada Beach, Playa Blanca is the perfect destination! The location itself is idyllic, along with the calm atmosphere as the sands are never overcrowded – pure bliss!

#7 For a glimpse of the locals’ lives, accompanied by quaint shops and restaurants, Old Town Harbour, Puerto Del Carmen is the place to visit. Many people agree that this part of Puerto Del Carmen is even better than the New Town – perhaps you’d love a stroll along the cliff path! It is recommended to visit here on a Friday, where the market is on, to get the full experience.

#8 For the more active members of your family, why not try Go Karting at Lanzarote Karting, San Bartolome, the no.1 Go Karting destination in Lanzarote? The free shuttle service to and from most hotels on the island gets rid of any parking worries and allows you to bring out your competitive side whilst racing with an ocean view!

#9 Again for the more adventurous type, the Surfing in Famara is an unforgettable time! With a choice of a one-off surf class, 3-10 day surf camp, surf safari or advanced surf coaching, it doesn’t matter how experienced you are – anyone can try it!

#10 Finally, discover the ancient realms of Cueva de los Verdes, taking a guided tour of the underground volcanic passageway, which even includes a concert hall in the middle of the caves! Get fully involved in this setting by being educated about the medieval tales of the pirates located here in the 18th and 19th century.

Whatever you’re looking for in a getaway, this beautiful island has everything you need right on your doorstep, alongside a never-faltering idyllic setting and a peaceful atmosphere – however you spend your holiday, Lanzarote will never fail to impress.
