Despite having around 250 km of coastline, with around 100 clean, sandy beaches, Lanzarote has largely avoided the high-rise developments of neighbouring islands such as in Tenerife. This is largely down to the sterling efforts of local artist and architect César Manrique (1919 – 1992). He promoted the island’s unique natural beauty, lobbying the government to allow only low-key developments. As a result, Lanzarote holidays are more likely to be booked in smaller apartment complexes than high-rise hotels, which are mainly restricted to resorts like Playa Blanca. A Lanzarote holiday offers you the opportunity to see Manrique’s work for yourself, through attractions like the Mirador del Rio and Jameos del Agua, both constructed from natural lava.
Permanently bathed in sunshine, tempered by cooling Atlantic breezes, holidays to Lanzarote are popular with water and land sports enthusiasts. As well as the board and wind surfing opportunities at resorts like Costa Teguise (which also has a water park) the island features challenging off-road cycling and hiking trails, and first-class sailing and golf facilities. Due to the superb year-round weather, Lanzarote is an incredibly popular destination for winter-sun holidays and this is one of the times you will find some excellent value all-inclusive deals.
