Spain and lunar holiday landings in Lanzarote.
Spain’s idyllic Canary Island of Lanzarote is actually less than 80 miles from the sun-drenched north-west coast of Africa. Yes, some beaches here do have uniquely appealing black sand. This is the result of volcanic activity a few hundred years ago. The result is some spectacularly unique scenery which is reminiscent of photographs of the surface of the moon. Not all beaches are black though; a number have fine, white sand that’s been baked by the relentless Canary Island sunshine. There are, of course, numerous non-beach features to thrill the senses as part of the Lanzarote holiday experience.
Fired with enthusiasm
Lanzarote has the third largest population of the seven prominent Canary Islands. All the islands have volcanic origins but they are more pronounced here. The last eruption was in the 19th century, but the arid climate and lack of erosion make it look as if it happened just yesterday. Your Lanzarote hotel will advise on the best volcanic features to visit; the Green Caves at Cuevas de Los Verdes are a list-topper. There isn’t much of the colour green involved, though; they are actually named after a local Mr. and Mrs. Verde. The caves are part of a four mile long lava tube. Via atmospheric lighting, they are seen to an inspiring and dramatic effect. Located at the north eastern end of Lanzarote, these caves are an easy 30 minute drive along the LZ-1 motorway from Arrecife. The convenient motorway links from prime resorts ensure that Los Verdes provides a leisurely day out from many holiday hotels in Lanzarote.
In a lather over Lanzarote’s lava cooking
Lanzarote is only 37 miles long and 12 miles across. Consequently, one of many joys is that day trips to all island points are easily undertaken from most Lanzarote hotels. Energetic visitors love the surfing and windsurfing on offer at Famara and Costa Teguise, while sun-worshippers can’t get enough of the white beaches at Playa Blanca, Papagayo and Caleton Blanco. The volcanic black is seen to maximum effect at Playa Quemada. Also and to the west of the island, there is an equally black and secret lagoon. One of many pleasing features is the fact that hotels and all other buildings on Lanzarote are, thankfully, low-rise. Additional pleasing features come in the form of the world’s densest presence of palm trees at Haria. Fascination heats up further at the National Park, Timanfaya, where you can cook meat on the rocks that are still heated by the underground volcanic lava. You’ll rarely get it cooked in a more surreal setting so, sir or madam; how do you like your steak?
Take a punt with popular Puerto
Puerto del Carmen is the island’s prime resort and it’s easy to see why; this south coast setting is less windy than the surfers’ paradises of the north. Main features here include the port and marina of La Tiñosa and the impressive Avenida de las Playas which stretches for four miles alongside the resort’s beaches. This avenue is home to numerous shops, restaurants and bars. Catering for the needs of families and partying adults, there’s a hotel in this Lanzarote resort to suit everyone. At Rancho Texas Theme Park, young and old can watch the birds and sea lions in their natural environments; plus there are facilities for eating, drinking, swimming and playing. It’s a great day out. In Puerto there’s even an open air cinema to relax in at the end of the day, before returning to your hotel. On Lanzarote, Puerto del Carmen is a top, not a last resort.
A toast to the Malvasia joys of Lanzarote
The resorts and beaches are excellent, but it’s the range of natural phenomena that makes Lanzarote ultra special. There’s the neighbouring island of Graciosa from where, unbelievably, some residents have never ventured. Then there are the small islands of Montana, Clara and Alegranza which appear to float and add even further to some of Lanzarote’s moon-type features. The 1,000+ unusual plant species at Jardim de Cactus in Guatiza bring more admiring gasps. Finally, it’s time to raise a glass to La Geria. Close to Timanfaya National Park, this wine growing region is the largest in Europe and home to the local Malvasia wine; often found in the island’s bars and hotels. The ancient vineyard covers some 20 square miles and its centuries old products even appealed to the palate of none other than William Shakespeare. So, all’s well that ends well on Lanzarote. Buena salud, good health!
