Lanzarote Holidays : Simply Irresistible Year Round

The winters here, its cold outside and the sun is struggling to get through the clouds, but if you fancy a bit of sun, sea and sand then why wait for the summer to come around? The island of Lanzarote welcomes tourists during all four seasons so why not indulge yourself?

Holidays in Lanzarote are hugely popular across a wide spread of demographics principally because they offer visitors the all round holiday experience with a range of excellent attractions as well as an incredible climate that delivers wonderful weather all year round.

In the current economic climate tourists are really looking for value for money and now that the pounds has recovered some ground against the euro Lanzarote compares very favourably with most other holiday destinations around the world.

Airfares are very reasonable and you’ll be able to find loads of flights to Lanzarote from many of the tour and travel companies. Accommodation is also reasonably priced as well for example there are thousands of Lanzarote villas and apartments available for rent across the island so choosing one should not be a problem. Last but not least Lanzarote and the Canary Islands are a duty free zone, so shopping and souvenirs are much cheaper to buy here too.

It´s highly unlikely that your holiday in Lanzarote will be washed out by the weather as the sun shines here virtually very day of the year and rainfall is scarce. This is thanks to the islands location close to the West African coast so visitors can expect to soak up temperatures in the mid 20s in winter and into the mid 30´s Celsius during the summer months.

Lanzarote is a real beach lover’s paradise. There are close to 100 great beaches to explore and nearly all of them boast golden sands rather than the black grains prevalent elsewhere in the Canaries on islands including neighbours such as Tenerife. There are also of course some superb stretches of sands in all of the three main resorts on the island. You´ll need to book Lanzarote car hire to get to the best ones and to explore the most dramatic spots yourself – such as Famara on the North West coast.

Simply lying around (even in the nice warm sun) is not everyone’s cup of tea though, and if you fall into this category then you´ll be delighted to hear that Lanzarote has a lot more to offer visitors that want to experience anything else the island has to offer. There´s a number of fascinating sights to explore here – such as the islands surreal volcanic region which was created by eruptions in the 1730´s. This whole area is now one of the most popular National Parks in Spain and should not be missed. And if that isn’t sufficiently stimulating then take in the many works of the well known local artist César Manrique, who worked with this surreal terrain to create a series of seven unique visitor attractions such as the Jameos del Agua and the Mirador Del Rio.

Book your next holiday and you won’t be disappointed.
