Lanzarote in the Canary Islands is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the whole of Spain. Attracting around 1.5 million foreign tourists every year. Thanks to the fact that the island benefits from a great year round climate and boasts over ninety beautiful beaches. As well as high quality accommodation and a wide range of Lanzarote villas and apartments for visitors to select from.__________________
But Lanzarote also offers visitors more than just beach holidays alone. As the Island of Fire boasts a great deal of natural beauty – alongside some breathtaking man made attractions.
Lanzarote is a volcanic island – having been subjected to prolonged eruptions during the 1730īs and 1820īs. Which have left the island with a legacy of around 300 volcanic peaks (all extinct) and unique volcanic scenery that is often likened to the surface of the moon.
The eruptions also shaped the coastline of Lanzarote. Such as at Los Hervidores on the north east side of the island.
Valley of 1000 Palms
Lanzarote is also an island of contrasts. As the north is completely different to the arid volcanic south. Boasting verdant, green valleys. Such as the Valley of 1000 Palms – where locals used to plant one palm tree for a new born girl and two for a boy.
