DISCOVER THE LANZAROTE EFFECT
The Lanzarote Effect extends into the integration of nature, art and culture. César Manrique, a Lanzarote-born artist, spearheaded the development of art and culture centers across the island that blend into their natural settings. Visitors understand that in Lanzarote, nature is art and art is nature.
"SOME PLACES IN THE WORLD ARE SPECIAL"
Lanzarote is different than other sun and sea destinations. It’s an island where nature and art prevail. A place where the people are as warm as they are active and proud. Where the food tastes of the sea and the earth. Where the essence of the island leaves a mark on your soul long after you depart.
Lanzarote offers a wide range of possibilities for you to make the most of your visit: savour its flavours as you wander around the local markets, dance to the rhythm of its music and enjoy its endless leisure and outdoor activities, all in the midst of volcanic and oceanic nature.
ART AND CULTURE AS A WAY OF LIFE
Conservation and cultural heritage are embedded in the history of Lanzarote and its people. This is a destination that feels like it was reserved for your dreams. The island’s life has adapted and thrived despite a harsh volcanic landscape, which has led to miles of ash fields re-imagined as water conservation systems for agriculture. Vineyards thriving out of deep holes in the ground. Stunning views of volcanoes and sea anywhere you stand, all because of a deep commitment to strict development codes on the island.
Lanzarote’s beaches invite the visitor to enjoy the sea that laps the island’s shores, particularly since the average annual water temperature is around 19.5º C. The sea surrounding Lanzarote, generally calm and welcoming, can be enjoyed from the numerous beaches that are scattered along the coastline. Apart from the well-known pleasures of sun and sand, the water also offers fantastic opportunities for the enjoyment of water sports and boat trips, due to the excellent weather conditions present all year round, the long hours of sunshine and the warm average temperature of the sea water.
AN UNMATCHED CUISINE
The gastronomy of Lanzarote stands out for its simplicity, as the ingredients are more important than the processes, but the results are very tasty. Excellent virgin olive oil, fresh fish and delightful meat, among others, have their place on Lanzarote’s tables. The great importance of its cheeses are joined by its stews, the most typical way of consuming vegetables.
WINES FROM ANOTHER WORLD
Lanzarote is living wine, a leisurely melody from a noble legacy that grows, in this dry subtropical climate, thanks to the ingenuity of previous generations. People made the volcanic sands their ally in order to wring every last drop of water from an adverse climate, and the growers have been strengthened by their permanent struggle with the scarce rainfall, until they managed to decipher the secrets of the cool air that arrives with nightfall. The fertile layer of soil into which the established and renewed vine roots sink is hidden, in some cases up to ten metres deep.
AN OPTIMAL ALL YEAR ROUND CLIMATE
Thanks to its geographical situation, Lanzarote possesses a warm climate throughout the entire year, with an average annual temperature of about 21ºC. As the easternmost of the Canary Islands, and the one closest to the African continent, in Lanzarote there is scarce rainfall and the sun shines for practically the whole year. This privileged climate has turned it into one of the most popular sun destinations for holidays.
WHERE TO STAY
The wide and renewed hotel offer in Lanzarote has a great selection of high quality accommodation for all types of public: whether you prefer to forget about everything at an all-inclusive hotel, if you travel with the family, if you like simplicity and choose a bungalow, if you have a limited budget or, on the contrary, if you live in style, the dedicated customer service and the characteristic Canarian hospitality will make you return home like new.

PUERTO DEL CARMEN
Starting from the small fishing village of La Tiñosa, the tourist area of Puerto del Carmen has developed from a succession of wonderful beaches interspersed with small rocky outcroppings, until reaching its current position with tourist infrastructure of the first order.

JAMEOS DEL AGUA
Jameos del Agua is located inside a volcanic tunnel produced by the eruptions of La Corona Volcano. Due to its proximity to the sea, it has an interior lake created by the infiltration of sea water, and is a most singular geological formation. It is also home to an impressive natural auditorium, where cultural events of special importance are held.
MONTAÑAS DEL FUEGO
In the heart of the Timanfaya National Park, are the Montañas del Fuego, where you can enjoy the spectacular scenery, see the volcanic activity first hand and sample dishes cooked using the heat of the volcano in its El Diablo restaurant.
JARDÍN DE CACTUS
The Jardín de Cactus is home to around 4,500 cactus plants of 450 different species, grouped into 13 families of cactus from five continents. This was the artist César Manrique's final intervention and represents a magnificent example of architecture integrated into the landscape.
