Tips for the Region

Lanzarote is a UNESCO biosphere reserve that is becoming increasingly popular with hikers due to its unique and stark volcanic landscapes. A car rental road trip in Lanzarote is a fantastic way to explore some of the more wild and secluded areas of the island. The incredible Parque Nacional de Timanfaya is home to the Montañas del Fuego or Mountains of Fire, with magma flowing just beneath the surface you can literally feel the heat from the volcanic soil. Other startling natural sights include the Cueva de los Verdes chasm and the amazing lava caves at the Jameos del Agua, also an arts and culture center.

The incredible beaches on the island are still the prime reason tourists flock here and with a car rental in Lanzarote you can really explore the best it has to offer. We highly recommend a trip to Famara for to its sheer expansiveness and the dramatic views of the adjoining Risco Mountain. Caletón Blanco is another scenic beach in a beautiful setting, it is formed from a series of coves providing some smaller pools that are ideal for children. We also recommend the popular Playa de Papagayo which experiences ideal weather conditions due to its location on the southern tip of the island.

Important Cities

Arrecife is the largest city on the island and has 3 excellent beaches, the best being the centrally located El Reducto Beach, protected by natural reefs. Along with plenty of opportunities for eating and shopping, Arrecife has two fantastic museums both housed in historic buildings; the Museo de Historia de Arrecife and the Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo.

Costa Teguise is a laidback resort town that was built to accommodate the growing number of visitors to the island. It boasts 5 main beaches all with their own character; Playa Cucharas is the most popular and has all the facilities you could need, Playa Jablillo has a pool encircled by volcanic rock that is great for swimming, Playa Bastian is sheltered from the wind and ideal for sunbathing while Playa Ancla and Los Charcos are quieter spots frequented by locals and easily reached by rental car.

Tías is in fact a municipality of smaller picturesque hamlets and fantastic resorts, the largest of which is Puerto del Carmen. The villages are whitewashed and set in striking volcanic landscapes while the resorts offer a plethora of watersports, boat rides and restaurants.

Climate, Cuisine & Traveling with Children

Climate: Lanzarote is famously warm all year round but reaches its peak in August with average highs of 84 degrees F. The island has a subtropical desert climate and receives very little rainfall with summers occasionally being completely dry.

Cuisine: The cuisine on Lanzarote is mostly based around its abundance of fish, with seam bream, parrotfish and sea bass being the most common. You'll find the renowned red and green mojo sauces are often served with potatoes as an accompaniment.

Traveling with Children: For children we highly recommend a trip to the Cactus Garden in the village of Guatiza. It is the last project of artist and architect César Manrique and features 450 species of cacti along with a beautifully restored windmill. Outdoor activities on the island to entertain children include camel rides and scuba diving and there are many beaches that offer ideal conditions for younger swimmers.
