Lanzarote Holidays

If you’re looking for a little sun as the winter months begin to drag on, consider booking a Lanzarote holiday. Lanzarote is one of the Canary Islands and it’s a great place to vacation. Sun and sand and friendly people make Lanzarote ideal whether you’re single, traveling with kids or enjoying your retirement.

The Canary Islands have long been a destination for Europeans. What makes Lanzarote special is its atmosphere.  It is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the people are proud of the natural beauty. In particular, development on the island is carefully considered. Lanzarote doesn’t have the sprawling feel of the other islands. The acclaimed artist César Manrique was instrumental in preserving the soul of the island. You won’t see buildings over 5 stories high and many of the buildings include traditional color schemes.

There are many English and Irish tourists, so lots of the islanders speak English. At hotels and restaurants you will have no trouble with menus, staff or food choices. I encourage you, however, to try the true Canarian cuisine. The staples of the cuisine include fish, corn and fruit. There are many “mojos” to try. These are sauces used to compliment main dishes like meat or potatoes. “Mojo picón” is one of the most popular; it’s made with lots of red pepper. The islands, being located just off the North African coast, have long been a watering stop for ships. Mariners would exchange exotic new foods like tomatoes and cocoa for meat and water. This has made Canarian agriculture more varied than it would otherwise be.

You will surely find a hotel that suits your style. If you are traveling with kids, consider the Lanzarote Princess. It’s a great place to stay with kids, whether they are toddlers or teens. The island has many villas to rent as well. It’s sometimes nice to feel like you’re staying with a friend instead of living out of a suitcase in a hotel room. Renting a villa or even an apartment in Arrecife, the capital, can save you money on food. Although the restaurants aren’t as a rule pricey, if you can save a little cash by eating a meal or two in, why wouldn’t you?

People who choose Lanzarote holidays can come back home tanned, refreshed and the envy of all their friends. Swimming, boating, golfing, shopping, exploring, sunbathing….. all of that combined with great food, friendly people and a rich history and culture makes Lanzarote truly an island paradise.
