The easternmost major island in the Canaries, Lanzarote has been a popular destination for British holidaymakers for years. The island is home to a number of well-developed resorts which are in the most part situated along the island's 16.5 km of beaches. Puerto del Carmen on the south coast and Costa Teguise on the east are some of the largest and offer many attractions both during the day and the evenings too. Playa Blanca on the other hand is quieter and more traditional, making it ideal for families and those looking to relax. Like the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote's climate varies little throughout the year with temperatures consistently between 20-30°C
Apart from the many tourist amenities Lanzarote is home to a selection of unique flora and fauna as well as some of the most stunning natural scenery found on the Canary Islands. The island's volcanoes have created some stunning vistas and the entire island is designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
