Situated just 79 miles off the coast of Africa, Lanzarote is the most
easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and
12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the
Lanzarote enjoys a mild dry climate
with average daytime temperatures ranging from about 21°C in January to
29°C in August. With total annual rainfall at just just 140mm (5.5
inches), Lanzarote is the perfect year-round holiday destination.
As with the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin.
Due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, many
parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as
'lunar' or 'Martian'. The dry climate (and lack of erosion) means that the Volcanic Landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions.
Despite the Volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as those at Playa Blanca, Papagayo and Caleton Blanco. Lanzarote is also home to 2 golf courses, offering a great golf holiday in the Canary Island sunshine.
