About Lanzarote

Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and is situated just 70 miles off the coast of Morocco.

The island enjoys near perfect climate all year round averaging 24 degrees centigrade due to its proximity to the tropic of cancer.

All of the Canary Islands are of volcanic origin with Lanzarote being the most spectacular example. Due to recent eruptions in the 18th and 19th centuries, with some eruptions lasting up to 6 years, Lanzarote appears to be from another planet with its amazing lunar landscape particularly in the south of the island where Timanfaya national park is located. The national park is a world biosphere reserve situated just 15 minutes drive from Playa Blanca containing numerous volcanoes and looking today exactly the same as it did when the last eruptions subsided back in the 19th century.

The island has so much to offer the discerning traveller from the stunning landscape to its beautiful beaches, resorts, villages, museums, art galleries, vineyards, caves and fortresses.

Despite the volcanic nature of the southern part of the island the north of the island is much greener and lush and enjoys its own spectacular scenery from Mirador del rio, through Haria and the Valley of a thousand palms, down to the islands old capital of Teguise.

Lanzarote has many beautiful sandy beaches from Playa Blanca and Papagayo in the south through to Famara and Orzola in the North.

Local authority regulations on the amount and style of development mean that there are no billboard advertising and no high rise buildings in Lanzarote.

Lanzarote is a truly beautiful island, small but dramatic and with almost guaranteed sunshine is the perfect choice for a holiday you will never forget.

About Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca is located in the south of the island enjoying its own mini climate to the rest of Lanzarote, it is the driest and warmest part of the island particularly in the southwest corner where the area of Faro Park is situated.

This now flourishing resort is ideal for families and for people looking for total relaxation as the town still retains a tranquil laid back atmosphere, but if you are looking for excitement as well the town does not disappoint with many bars, restaurants and clubs and numerous waterspouts to enjoy along the beach front.

There are not many resorts in the world who could match the views from Playa Blanca looking towards the islands of Los Lobos and Fuerteventura, and you can drink in this sight in the quaint bars and restaurants found along the promenade which stretches the whole length of the resort or you can just watch the local fishermen bringing in their catches for visitors to dine on in the many top class eateries that Playa Blanca possesses.

The resort also boasts a stunning new marina with a host of waterfront caf├ęs, restaurants and up market shops and from the harbour in the town centre you can catch a ferry across to Fuerteventura only a 20 minute sail away.
