About this holiday
Staying in the modern resort of Puerto
del Carmen, there are restaurants, shops,
nightlife and bars aplenty - perfect spots
to enjoy the evenings as we linger on the
A great combination
Carefully balancing tourism with tradition,
Lanzarote has retained much of its original
character. Still around are charming white-washed
houses nestled in pretty villages adorned with
fragrant bougainvillea and scented hibiscus. Not
always in line with traditional style, but certainly
a significant influence on the look of today’s
Lanzarote, are the exhibits and sculptures on
display at the César Manrique Foundation.
The foundation is also an art gallery featuring
art created by Manrique himself, as well as art
acquired over his life. The gallery includes original
sketches by Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.
Not like planet earth!
Not just another Canary Island, Lanzarote
can seem like another planet with its volcanic
landscape looking like a backdrop to an episode
of Star Trek. To experience the amazing volcanic
power underneath us, we can scratch away the
top soil and feel the warmth under our feet.
Digging a little deeper we can even create our
own version of a mini-geyser!
Timanfaya National Park is a must see. Better
known as the Fire Mountains, it’s where 32
volcanoes erupted all at once in 1732. Last but
not least is the Mirador del Rio, Lanzarote’s
best viewpoint, hundreds of feet above the sea
crowning Famara Cliff, where cannons once kept
watch over the Atlantic.
