What to expect in Lanzarote

Lanzarote is an island of extraordinary beauty with black deserts and white houses that glitter like gems. There are secluded lagoons and roaring waves while volcanoes give the island height and a stark beauty. There are some large resorts but there are also smaller, quieter options. From murals and breath-taking architecture, the influence of artist Manrique who was from Lanzarote, is evident throughout the island. Parks and gardens are green and peaceful places away from the tourist hub while quirky cave bars and hip clubs give the city an enviable nightlife. Whether it’s rambling or being a beach bum, surfing or shopping, wining and dining or dancing until dawn, Lanzarote seems to offer all this and more.

Lanzarote is warm all year round, with average temperatures of around 22°C. December and January are the rainiest but quietest months seeing fewer tourists. Summers can get in to the 40’s which can make being outside a little unpleasant for some.

The prices on Lanzarote are excellent value. Bottles of beer start from €1.18* while cocktails are around €5*. Dinner for two can be as little as €25* while breakfast is a bargain at €5* or less. Accommodation ranges from luxury hotels and family resorts to cheap B&Bs which caters for most budgets.
