Seven summer plans in Lanzarote
After a whole year of routine and work you’ve earned these holidays in Lanzarote.
And you’ve come to the right place – whether you’re looking for fun, adventure or disconnection and whether you’re here with family, friends or on your own. Whatever the case, there is a perfect plan waiting for you this summer on the island. We’ve got these seven suggestions for you:
1. Healing plan. Walk around Famara
If you need to disconnect, your perfect plan is a stroll along the beach of Famara, crowned by its spectacular Risco. As you feel the wind enveloping you and the sand massaging your feet, you’ll feel the anti-stress treatment taking effect. The place begs you to adapt to the atmosphere by having a quiet meal in one of the restaurants in the village. The local fish and the wines of the Lanzarote D.O. taste better in front of the natural work of art that is this unique place.
2. Family plan. A day on a catamaran
With the ocean surrounding the island, it’s a great idea to set aside a day for sailing. And if yours is a real family of sea dogs, the best plan is a catamaran trip along the southern beaches of Papagayo. During the day you’ll have the opportunity to swim, snorkel, kayak and paddle board. All you need is a desire for some action, sun cream (always) and a swimsuit.
3. Cultural plan. Guided tour of the island
When you visit a place for the first time, it’s a great idea to do so with someone who loves it and knows it inside out. Lanzarote may be one of the destinations where the tourist informers are most in love with their work and this is reflected in the quality of the experiences they offer. In addition to the Island’s Art, Culture and Tourism Centres, if you visit the north, you shouldn’t miss the Valley of the Thousand Palm Trees or the organic aloe vera farm. In the central area, the Tanit Ethnographic Museum is worth a visit and, in the south, El Golfo or Los Hervideros are must-sees. And don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Marina Rubicón and Puerto Calero marinas.
4. Active plan. Paradise by kayak
Our subtropical climate allows you to enjoy the sea all year round, with water temperatures that don’t drop below 19º, even in winter. Just imagine yourself steering your kayak through the island’s whimsical nature, discovering its caves, cliffs, islets and beaches. The nautical activities on offer in Lanzarote can also be done close to the coast, which makes them ideal for the little ones. You don’t need to bring equipment. With the advice of the kayak professionals, you only need to focus on enjoying a safe and comfortable experience.
5. Adventurous plan. Underwater safari
Lanzarote has one of the richest seabeds in the world. At only 25 metres from the surface, it’s already possible to see its great biodiversity. The submarines that take you on this safari are of the tourist type, very spacious and comfortable, with large windows that provide an unbeatable view of the outside. Each dive is unique and you’ll some across fish of all colours and shapes. And let’s not forget the two wrecks, which will fire up the imagination of the more adventurous members of the family.
6. Healthy plan. Hiking
If you’ve been longing for contact with nature and fresh air all year round, the time has come to put on your trainers and discover the island on foot. We assure you that it will take time for your eyes to assimilate the astonishing nature of Lanzarote as you wander along its trails. Our advice is to choose one of the interpreted routes that will introduce you to the island’s fauna and flora, as well as its archaeology, water culture and agricultural and livestock farming traditions. This immersion in the essence of the island is the best souvenir you can take back with you.
7. Disconnection plan. La Graciosa
We know that Lanzarote has so much to offer that it can be difficult to choose a plan. However, a visit to La Graciosa is a must for those who come in search of some down time. There are very few places like this that give you the impression that time slows down and flows gently. A good way to get to know the eighth Canary Island is by catamaran excursion, which calls at the village of Caleta del Sebo – where you can immerse yourself in the slow lifestyle of its inhabitants – and at the small hidden paradise of Playa de la Francesa. We guarantee that after your holiday on the islands you’ll be going home with your batteries recharged (if you decide to go home at all).
