Popular with families, great all year round destination
When you travel to this fantastic island you are blessed with a year round sunny climate making Lanzarote a perfect holiday destination whenever you are looking to travel.
During the winter months the evening temperature drops slightly making it perfect for the open air bars and restaurants. The calm clear waters surrounding the island make it ideal for swimming and the many water sports on offer, including windsurfing, scuba diving and kite sailing.
Holidays in Lanzarote give you the opportunity to experience plenty of impressive golden sandy beaches, the most beautiful being Papagayo in Playa Blanca to the south of the island. Located within a nature reserve, it is the perfect place to laze the day away on Lanzarote holidays.
The most popular and liveliest resort on the island is Puerto del Carmen. It has an energetic nightlife with a great choice of bars and discos along the seafront promenade. The resort offers a wide range of entertainment which is popular with families. There are plenty of bed and breakfast and self catering apartments for you to choose from, or for a touch of luxury, select an all inclusive hotel option.

Timanfaya National Park, where you'll learn about the history of Fire Mountain
Costa Teguise operates on a much lower key than Puerto del Carmen but is still a fairly lively resort. Many of the restaurants are open late and the resort boasts an excellent selection of bars, both British and local style.
If you're looking for a more relaxing holiday the resort of Playa Blanca is for you. Playa Blanca is very low key with a variety of open air restaurants providing ocean views across the Bocaina Straits to Fuerteventura. The marina gives Playa Blanca an upmarket feel, and for a change of scenery, you can catch the ferry over to neighbouring Fuerteventura. You'll also find plenty of boutiques in the centre of Playa Blanca where you can shop until you drop, or wander the traditional stalls and markets looking for those all important holiday souvenirs.
Golf is an up and coming sport on Lanzarote, its slow development is partly due to the dry climate making it difficult to create the lush green courses needed, however a better desalination process now means that this can be achieved.
For a truly amazing day out, enjoy a trip to the Timanfaya National Park. You can take a bus journey round the National Park where you'll learn about the history of Fire Mountain. After this unforgettable experience you can enjoy a meal in the restaurant, taking in the panoramic views and amazing sunsets. Lanzarote holidays are available to book here online at Latedeals.co.uk
