Looking for a holiday destination that offers the opportunity to explore loads of great beaches? Then book your next break in Lanzarote, the fourth largest of the Canary Islands and home to some of the most picturesque playas in Spain.
The island is just four hours from the UK and flights to Lanzarote are available from as little as €100 all year round, with low cost carriers such as Ryanair, Monarch and easyJet all offering great value returns.
Car hire in Lanzarote is cheap too, with rental rates starting from as little as €15 per day. So it really doesn’t break the bank to enjoy a holiday here.
There are over 100 beaches to explore – the majority of them made up of golden grains as opposed to the black sands prevalent on other Canary Islands. And some of the best can be found within the confines of the main holiday resorts. Such as Puerto del Carmen where tourists can soak up the sun on Playa Grande or Playa Chica. Or head for Costa Teguise to explore no less than five great beaches such as Playa Cucharas and Playa Bastian.
But all of these beaches are man made, using sand imported from the Sahara. So in order to find the genuine article you?ll need to get out and explore the island a little more. In the north tourists will find the delightful little seaside village of Arrieta for example. Arrieta has it?s own gorgeous beach at Playa La Garita, which is also home to a couple of excellent value restaurants if you fancy a bite to eat. The north of Lanzarote also boasts the sweeping bay at Famara which is widely regarded by many as the finest and most dramatic beach on the island.
As well as great beaches there are plenty of fascinating attractions to explore too, such as the Timanafaya National Park and the Cesar Manrique Foundation. All of which are easy to reach by car as the island is so small.
Accommodation in Lanzarote is also in plentiful supply and you will find that there are loads of Lanzarote hotels for visitors to choose from. The Lanzarote Guidebook travel website showcases some of the best, along with a wide selection of apartments and villas too.
As well as viewing a selection of property for sale from leading Lanzarote estate agents.
