As we’ve said previously in this article, we recommend that you travel to Lanzarote in the summer. This will enable you to get the most out of both the beaches and the different excursions. It’s advisable that you stay on the island between 5 to 7 days, which will give you time to take full advantage of not only the sun, sea and sand, but also to tour round the island’s towns and villages, marvelling at Lanzarote’s different landscapes.
Amongst its most celebrated attractions is the Timanfaya National Park. Taking a bus along the 14 km-long Volcano Route is highly recommended, or you can also do one of the hiking trails when visiting. And we can’t forget the Lago Verde (also known as the Charco de los Clicos), another of the island’s unmissable attractions. This is an ancient volcano that has a hidden green lagoon, whose contrast with the volcanic soil is utterly breathtaking.
Another place that is a delight to walk around is the Cactus Garden, home to many different species of this plant. It’s also worth venturing to Isla Graciosa, a small island that boasts heavenly beaches and picturesque fishermen’s houses.
Lanzarote’s most-renowned beaches are located to the south of the island, including Playa de Papagayo, Playa Mujeres and Playa de la Cera. Similarly, Playa del Calentón Blanco, Playa de las Cucharas, Playa de los Charcos, Playa Blanca and Playa Dorada are also popular beaches.
Furthermore, a trip round the different towns and villages in the zone makes for a great outing. Some of the most notable are Arrecife (Lanzarote’s capital, where there are the San José and San Gabriel Castles and other attractions), Puerto del Carmen (popular during carnival season), Playa Blanca (a fishing village), plus lots more.
Considering the broad variety of activities Lanzarote has to offer, whether you travel here in winter or summer makes no difference: it will always be an excellent choice. The fact that the
island has a very stable climate guarantees that a stay here at any time of the year will be most agreeable.
It is important to remember, however, that the pandemic is not yet over, meaning that there are still some protocols to be followed when entering the island. Nevertheless, these will be no hindrance to you enjoying your visit to Lanzarote to the full.
So, all in all, there’s nothing to stop you from planning a fantastic itinerary to ensure you get to see the whole island. All that’s left to decide is during which season you prefer to visit Lanzarote!
