Things to do in Lanzarote
Our Lanzarote villas are not only the best self-catering accommodation available, but they offer the opportunity to holiday in a unique and remarkable environment and provide the perfect hub to explore this gorgeous volcanic island.
Many of our luxury Lanzarote villas are close to Timanfaya National Park, where the extreme terrain, variety of colours, silhouettes of volcanoes and jagged coastline make the park extraordinarily beautiful. The entire island was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1993.
However, that's not all Lanzarote has to offer. Lanzarote's coastline is home to well-established holiday resorts, fine sandy beaches, and many family activities, ensuring holidaymakers choose a Lanzarote villa holiday year after year.
There's no shortage of beaches to discover on this sun-soaked island. Our villas to rent in Lanzarote are nicely dotted around glorious stretches of sand and picturesque coves.
If you choose one of our Playa Blanca beach villas, stunning beaches are right on your doorstep, including a Blue Flag bay of pure white sand – the ideal spot for topping up the tan. Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote's most established resort, and the main beach (Playa Grande) offers plenty of amenities.
Blue Flag Beaches
Blue flag beaches are very popular, but only the best beaches receive the coveted status. These paradises are practically unspoilt, with long stretches of golden sands and beautiful waters.
La Graciosa is one of the most popular beaches in Lanzarote, but we also recommend Matagorda and Los Pocillos for families.
Nightlife in Lanzarote
Expect an array of evening entertainment on your Lanzarote villa holiday. In the established resort of Puerto del Carmen, many bars and clubs are on offer for those wanting to extend their nights into the late morning.
For those after something more laid-back, enjoy tapas at the chic marina in Puerto Calero and sample some of Lanzarote's best cocktails in Costa Teguise.
We recommend one of ourvillas in Playa Blanca to be close to the swish Marina Rubicón, home tostylish bars and exclusive restaurants for those seeking a more discerning nightlife.
Food and Drink in Lanzarote
Restaurants here will cater to your needs, with various international cuisines and Spanish specialities. You'll love a Canary Island dish called 'Papas Arrugadas' – a small jacket potato drizzled in a spicy pepper sauce.
Many of our villas in Puerto del Carmen are close to the Old Town, dotted with authentic seafood restaurants. At the same time, the island's capital Arrecife is the ideal place to stock up on local produce such as meat, fruit and vegetables – perfect for cooking up a storm in your private villa in Lanzarote.
Restaurants for couples
If you prefer a quiet life, there are plenty of beautiful restaurants in Lanzarote that are ideal for couples to enjoy a romantic meal. The Michelin-standard Kamezi Deli & Bistro is one of the top-rated restaurants on the island, serving a combination of Mediterranean and European foods.
Nine Lanzarote offers a sumptuous selection of Mediterranean and Italian cuisine for something less demanding on the wallet.
Fine Dining in Lanzarote
Taste the gastronomical delights of food cooked using the heat of volcanoes in the famous El Diablo restaurant. We promise the setting is spectacular and it's one of Europe's most lovely restaurants.
Family-friendly dining options
Of course, a holiday with the children means you'll need to find dining options for the entire family. Luckily, Lanzarote isn't short of great restaurants that offer different cuisines that children and adults can enjoy.
Citurna Casual Food provides a selection of Latin and healthy foods and is one of the most budget-friendly choices on the island. You can also check out the range of steak, grill houses, and pizzerias.
History and Culture in Lanzarote
Unlike its Canary Island neighbours, you won't find a single high-rise building in Lanzarote – a regulation that has been in place for years to prevent over-tourism.
All buildings are coloured in the local white chalk, contrasting beautifully with the island's volcanic black sands. There's also the legacy of Cesar Manrique, the famous artist whose creations can be seen dotted around the island.
Castillo De Las Coloradas
The Castilla is one of the top sites in Lanzarote, having been built in the 18th Century to defend the island from pirate attacks. Today, it overlooks Fuerteventura and provides a relaxed setting for people to walk and enjoy the view.
Teguise is a top destination for families, but many forget to look at the town's church, which is a testament to stunning architecture. There's also a market to stroll around, and you might find some authentic cafes.
