Best places to visit and things to do in Lanzarote

Lanzarote has a stunning diversity and plethora of things to do and see. The size of the island makes it easy to see loads of things even with a limited time schedule.


Hire cars are very reasonably priced and is the best way to see the island. Armed with the information here, or in the printed version of this website the ‘Lanzarote Guide Map’, plus your hire car you are ready to explore.

You can choose from visiting the houses and creations of Cesar Manrique. Visit castles used in harder times as protections against slavers, pirates and invasions. Take a look at some naturally beautiful locations. Search amongst the many markets for souvenirs, art and local produce.

Maybe spend the morning seeing places of interest, have a lovely traditional ‘tapas’ lunch then lounge away the afternoon on a secluded white sand beach. You could literally do this everyday in a different place without visiting the same location twice.
