Lanzarote

Lanzarote, called 'Conejera' by the islanders, is also known as the island of 100 volcanoes. Its volcanic origin has created a landscape with more than 300 volcanoes. It is the most eastern island of the Canarian archipelago and it is situated very close to the African coast (which is some 125km away) and north of Fuerteventura. The surface of the island measures 846km2, and its widest point is some 21km across. To the north of the island, we find a group of small islands, La Graciosa, Alegranza, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste, which form the Chinijo archipelago.

Warm temperatures all year.

With a good deal of flatland, Lanzarote is the least mountainous of the Canary Islands. Due to its low level, Lanzarote is below the level of humid and warm air. In general, this results in a dry climate with little rain. The average temperature is 24° in August and 17° in January. The sea temperature varies between 17° and 24° at the surface. The sun shines for many hours throughout the year, which allows sun worshippers to enjoy the long white-sand beaches and clear waters: those of Famara, Papagayo, Orzola, Puerto del Carmen or Las Cucharas. The wind is constant and moderate almost all year, making Lanzarote a suitable place for the practice of yachting, windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Typical landscape.

The palm trees, almost the only kind of native tree life, are found in the banks of the barrancos and the bottoms of the valleys. The palm groves of Haria, situated on the outskirts of the village, deserve a special mention.

Volcanic landscapes, clouds in constant movement, light and wind, white houses, singular architecture produced by the international artist, Cesar Manrique, crystal-clear waters, beaches of golden sand... All this is characteristic of Lanzarote. Come and discover it for yourself!
