Lanzarote is the fourth-largest of the Canary Islands, an island chain which can be found just off the western coast of Morocco, in the reaches of the North Atlantic Ocean. An archipelago consisting of seven islands, which together are considered to be an autonomous, self-governing community of Spain, the Canaries rank amongst the most sought-after tourist destinations in the world. An astonishing 13.1 million visitors frequented the islands in 2016 alone – accounting for over 16% of the Spanish tourism industry!
Lanzarote has been a mainstay beach holiday destination since the early seventies. The island was, in fact, one of the original European holiday destinations – so Lanzarote actually helped to catapult the very idea of the ‘beach break’ into the mainstream in the first place! Take one look at the many attractions to be found in Lanzarote, and you shouldn’t find it hard to figure out how it made such an impact. Boasting contemporary resort towns, awe-inspiring volcanic scenery and some of the most stunning beaches in the Mediterranean on its doorstep, a cheap holiday to Lanzarote is virtually guaranteed to excite and amaze!
