Beaches

Lanzarote’s beaches are surprisingly beautiful, with crystal clear water and sand that ranges from white to golden and all the way to black. In the south, the best-known beaches are Puerto del Carmen (where our Hotel Puerto Carmen lies, just a 10 minute walk from the beach), Papagayo and Matagorda. In the north, the beaches of Famara, Costa Teguise, Caletón Blanco and Orzola stand out as well as the beaches on the island of La Graciosa. They are ideal for swimming because of their warm waters (about 19ºC), for fans of water sports, like sailing, surfing, kayaking, kitesurfing, fishing, etc., and for boat trips.

Fine cuisine

Lanzarote’s typical cuisine has been influenced by a variety of cultures: from its original inhabitants, the Guanche, and those of the Iberian Peninsula and South America. Rich in raw materials, the excellent fish and seafood from the Atlantic are combined with the fruits of the earth, vegetables and meat. Dishes like “papas arrugadas”, potatoes with spicy pepper sauce, “abrito conejero”, stewed kid, and “caldo de millo con garbanzos”, maize broth with chickpeas, are all outstanding. La Geria is the most important area on the island for wine making and its wines bear the Lanzarote DOC.

Nature

Lanzarote was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on 7 October 1993 and environmental protection is one of the most important traits of the local inhabitants. The island has an immense natural heritage, with a wealth of flora and fauna, plus a total of 13 protected natural areas. Worth mentioning is the Timanfaya National Park, which spans over 35,000 hectares. The island has a large number of trails, adapted for all levels, on which you can enjoy hiking or biking while enjoying excellent weather conditions on your way.

Culture

Among the many cultural spaces in Lanzarote, we’d like to highlight the César Manrique Foundation, based in Taro de Tahiche. This foundation’s mission is to promote the works and ideas of this wonderful artist from Lanzarote. Another must-see are the seven Touristic Centres designed by César Manrique himself. The cultural centre “El Almacén”, in Arrecife, hosts temporary exhibitions; the Pirate Museum in the Santa Bárbara castle in Teguise; and the Jameos del Agua auditorium, where plays, concerts and other shows are performed inside a volcanic tube.
