Located 100 Kilometres off the North West Coast of Africa, Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands. A perfect size, the island is large enough to offer the discerning visitor enough to visit and experience on their holiday yet small enough so that visitors do not feel overwhelmed.
From the spectacular volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, the intricate cave formations of Jameos Del Aqua to the action packed surfing beaches of Famara, Lanzarote has a depth and beauty which makes it a totally unique place to visit.
The announcement by UNESCO in 1993, declaring the island as a Biospheric Reserve has reinforced the commitment of the island to approach tourism in a sustainable and culturally significant manner.
Lanzarote is well known for its year round sunshine, welcoming visitors throughout the year. With the combination of traditional Canarian towns and amazing beaches, the island makes the most of its natural beauty and climate.
The island has no natural source water however the island´s earth is fertile and the many local farmers successfully grow produce such as potatoes, onions, peas and pumpkin to name just a few. For more details about the local produce markets held across the island, visit our Local Markets page.
Lanzarote enjoys a rather sleepy pace of life, with the opportunity to explore, discover and relax all in one.
