The Canary Islands have so much to offer, from subtropical landscapes and lush vegetation to desert landscapes to breathtaking cliffs and golden beaches. There’s Lanzarote, the land of lava and fire, Fuerteventura with its endless beaches, Tenerife with its imposing volcano, and Gran Canaria with its majestic dunes reminiscent of the Sahara desert... Each island is different, but they are all bathed by a generous sun and enjoy a mild climate, so you can be sure of a great beach holiday all year round!
Lanzarote was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1993, and captivates visitors with its unique volcanic landscape. Under a radiant sun that shines for a good part of the year, the island features magnificent beaches with crystal clear waters perfect for swimming, surfing and diving. Lanzarote is also notable for its traditional architecture, which bears the mark of the artist César Manrique, a native of the island whose works are a tribute to the Canary Islands and the relationship between man and nature. Lanzarote’s most popular areas for holidaymakers are the seaside areas of Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise.
The whole area of Playa Blanca is set along a long sea promenade (though only a footpath on some stretches) and is home to two beautiful white sandy beaches – Playa Dorada and Playa Flamingo. The Rubicon marina is also popular for its seaside atmosphere and quaysides lined with small shops, bars and restaurants. Distance from the airport: 35 km.
This small seaside resort has a modern marina which is a lovely place for a stroll. It also boasts charming coves with pebbled beaches nestled between steep coastlines. It is a great destination for those in search of peace and quiet, who want to explore the island by car. Distance from the airport: 13 km.
Located on the eastern coast, this modern seaside town named after the island's former capital, Teguise, features a small seafront promenade and offers good recreational opportunities. Its coastline is also popular for water sports, especially windsurfing and diving. Las Cucharas beach is located in the heart of the town. Distance from the airport: 10 km.
This former fishing village located south of Arrecife has gradually transformed itself into the popular seaside resort it is today. It is dotted with numerous cafes, shops, restaurants and discos, but it has still retained its old-fashioned charm, especially in the narrow streets around the port, where you can also enjoy excellent seafood. Puerto del Carmen also has a beautiful long promenade and a large, gently sloping sandy beach. Distance to the airport: 7 km.

LuxairTours organises a range of quality excursions for you.
This excursion will allow you to discover the north of the island starting from Teguise. First, you will go through Haría, a small white village located in the enchanting Valley of a Thousand Palms, whose exuberant colours contrast with the surrounding volcanic landscape. You will then continue towards the Mirador del Rio, where you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view. The next stop takes you to the Cueva de los Verdes, the only lava cave in the world open to visitors, and Jameos del Agua, a cave designed by the Lanzarote artist César Manrique.
This half-day activity will immerse you in the other-wordly landscape of the Timanfaya region. First, you'll head to the famous volcano and marvel at the lunar landscape of lava formations and unusual rock shapes. You will then continue to Yaiza, one of the prettiest villages on the island and a cultural heritage site, and then to the green lagoon of El Golfo. This is another natural wonder – a volcanic crater that has been invaded by the sea, whose reflections give it a striking interplay of colours. For the third and final stop on the tour, you will visit the wine region of La Geria, where you can enjoy a wine tasting.
Discover all the facets of this unique and magical island on this day trip which combines the unmissable sights of the north and south, including the charming village of Haría in the heart of the Valley of a Thousand Palms, the works of César Marique, the unique landscapes of Timanfaya, the wine region of Yaiza and the green lagoon of El Golfo. Details and full programme available from your LuxairTours guide at your destination.
Discover the very best of Fuerteventura by taking a ferry to Corralejo. A short bus ride will then take you to the Corralejo Dunes Natural Park, a must-see site on this beautiful island, where you can wander around and enjoy the scenery. This huge expanse of sand has been formed over the centuries by the disintegration of shells and marine organisms and contrasts beautifully with the black volcanic rock and the turquoise blue of the ocean. On this trip, you will be able to swim, shop or just relax on a café terrace. On the way back to Lanzarote, you will stop along the coastline to discover its fascinating marine diversity.
