Lanzarote hotels: top things to do on holiday

The beautiful Spanish island of Lanzarote, located in the Canary Islands, offers incredible volcanic landscapes and picturesque coastlines. Its stunning natural beauty is complemented by the many tourist activities and amenities on offer, from the restaurants, shops and clubs to top Lanzarote hotels. Since the island is designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve protected site, there are numerous restrictions on the style and amount of development on the island. This means that no high-rise apartments or condominiums are on the island and billboard advertising is not allowed. As a result, many Lanzarote hotels and villas tend to be more natural developments with enhanced privacy. In fact, many of the hotels offer so many amenities and such beautiful beaches that some visitors decide not to leave their resort. If you do decide to venture out, however, there are plenty of sights worth seeing.

Timanfaya National Park

Lanzarote's Fire Mountains - of MontaƱas del Fuego - give the surrounding region an intriguing Lunar-like appearance. Created by a series of volcanic eruptions in the 18th and 19th centuries, the mountains are an iconic and important part of the island. Rare plant species abound in this area and you can take a guided tour of the park or even ride a camel across the landscape.

Jameos del Agua

This extensive network of caves, created by a volcanic eruption three or four thousand years ago, have been turned into a complex with a swimming pool, auditorium, restaurants, and gardens that look like a natural part of the surrounding caves.

Lanzarote Aquarium
