Looking for the perfect family holiday destination with a real sense of escape? Bask in Lanzarote's year-round sunshine, and take in the heavenly combination of sandy beaches and outstanding natural beauty that all of the Canaries are so famous for. All you need to add is a cooling glass of sangria or beer and you're good to go for a holiday in Lanzarote to remember!
The delightful summer temperatures of 24°C-28°C are ideal if you'd like to soak up the sun. Because there's very little variation in temperature in the winter months, a holiday in Lanzarote is perfect if you're keen to embrace some winter sun.
During the day, you can visit Lanzarote's biggest waterpark, Aquapark in Costa Teguise, or the Rancho Texas Zoo for a family day of fun. Timanfaya National Park has jaw-dropping views of the hot geysers, so you definitely wouldn't want to miss that! Or, unleash your inner shopaholic and visit the boutiques in Lanzarote's capital, Arrecife. Alternatively, you can hire a bike and cycle through the quaint streets of Haria or San Bartolome before stopping in a local cafe for some refreshing juice or tasty ice cream.
Lanzarote holidays offer so many delightful resorts to choose from. Puerto del Carmen is the island’s largest resort and perfect if you like beach watersports. The resort really comes alive at night, so embrace the bustling nightclubs and dance the night away! Or, visit the Old Town and grab a bite to eat by the harbour. Costa Teguise is ideal for couples and young families looking for a peaceful holiday or family-friendly days out. And with so much to see in Playa Blanca, you can start by relaxing on the stunning beaches. Or, you can pull on a wetsuit and go scuba diving for an adventure-filled day!

For a great family day out, visit the water park, Rancho Texas zoo, or take a dive in Lanzarote's very own yellow submarine. For a great day's shopping, head to the island capital, Arrecife. Don't miss a guided tour of volcanic Timanfaya Park, or a visit artist Cesar Manrique's unique lava bubble house. Arrecife, the islands capital, comes alive at night, with lots of traditional Spanishstyle bars and a smattering of clubs. All of Lanzarote's resorts have bars and discos, but the liveliest resort is Puerto del Carmen, with plenty of pubs and late night venues to choose from. Many hotels lay on inhouse entertainment, with child friendly discos and shows aplenty on holiday to Lanzarote.
Lanzarote's traditional cuisine combines Spanish influences with those from Latin America and Africa. You're most likely to find food like this in Arrecife, or in small towns and villages throughout the island. In the main resorts, international dishes are the order of the day, with a great choice of Chinese, Italian, Indian and British restaurants. Sample the local wine, or try Spanish style tapas and sangria. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly holiday to Lanzarote, half board and all inclusive hotels are a great option, as they offer a variety of delicious dishes included in the price.
