17 March 2011 3 Comments

If you are a frequent visitor to Canary Islands, then Lanzarote is perhaps very strange compared to all the other canaries’ island you will ever come across. Lanzarote is not very populated, and if you are arriving for the first time for holidays in Lanzarote, then it will give an empty look, completely barren at times. You are advised to look at the right places to enjoy your holidays in Lanzarote.

There are many significant tourist destinations in Lanzarote that can hardly be found at nearby countries.  Here are few of them.

Cuevo de los Verdes is probably, one of the best places in Lanzarote. If you have arrived in Canary Island by flights to Lanzarote, then Cuevo de los Verdes is simply not to be missed. There was a time when this destination was frequented by pirates. Pirates used this place to hide, however, the efforts of the government to convert this beautiful place into a tourist destination paid off. Cuevo de los Verdes was formed as a result of a volcano some 5,000 years ago, and now this place is a thriving tourist destination with lot of entertainment around the area itself.

Jameos del Aqua is another very popular destination and if you have decided to spend your holidays in Lanzarote then you should visit this place. It is a beautiful scenic area, with a beautiful lake, and even a swimming pool. Don’t forget to take your cameral along with you to shoot photographs in the area. There are many bars and restaurant around the site and you will certainly have a good time amidst natural beauty, sipping your favourite beer, sitting beside the lake.

The cactus garden is probably the right place for any biologist. Study different types of cactus, which throngs the area. Your holidays in Lanzarote will certainly turn out to be beautiful. The garden has tourist from all parts of the world. People come to the garden, which is located at Gustiza to learn about the cactus plants and also enjoy the beauty of the place as a whole.

A visit to Lanzarote is never complete without a trip to the El Diablo Restaurant. The restaurant is stationed right over the volcano, though, the volcano is lying dormant for a long time, yet, it’s a great fun to be a part of history of what Lanzarote is all about.

Holidays in Lanzarote is about visiting interesting locations around Lanzarote, and appreciating the raw beauty it has. I really hope you can come and enjoy the beauty of Lanzarote

    Great run down of the best cultural spots on the Island. Love your post on Lanzarote, you’re clearly a die hard fan like me. Did you get to go to Cesar Manrique?

    The article covers most of the areas on this lovely Island. Many people see Lanzarote as an Island with not much more than sunshine to offer. However it has many things to see and do along with some great beaches in the south. Arieta is also a place that I love to visit when on the Island, great local restaurants and chilled out atmosphere.
