Places to Visit in Lanzarote

Fourth largest among the island cluster of the Canary Islands is Lanzarote. It’s just off the coast of Africa and actually originates from a volcano. Hence, it’s not surprising that the climate in the island is dry and hot.

Because Lanzarote enjoys year-round sunshine, people who are in search of the perfect beach getaway consider it the answer to their prayers. However, Lanzarote offers more than just stunning beaches. It actually has other attractions that would surely make your days away from the beach truly special.

For instance, you can tour the stunning Green Caves, which was formed by Corona Volcano’s eruption about 3,000 years ago. Then there’s Timanfaya Volcano Park with a lavish display of flora and fauna. However, the number one tourist attraction that you shouldn’t forget when you book budget Lanzarote holidays is a trip to Jameos de Agua where you’ll find extraordinary formations made from solidified lava.

If you’re traveling with children, then you must not forget to visit Whales and Dolphins Museum, which contains a wide range of life-size replicas, scaled models, skeletons, and biological exhibits of whales and dolphins. Children would certainly enjoy their time there and learn many new things. These are some of the things you can do while in Lanzarote.
