How to get to Lanzarote

Lanzarote is part of the Canary Islands, and subsequently also a part of Spain. There are plenty of flights to the Canaries leaving from the UK, but if you want to travel in style there are also ferries leaving from Cadiz at a regular interval.

There is something for everyone on the island

One of the biggest upsides of choosing Lanzarote as a holiday destination is that there is a little bit of everything on the island. Regardless of whether you’re someone who prefers to lay down on a beach and read a book or listen to a good podcast, or if you want to be active on your days off, Lanzarote offers it all.

The water is warm and the beaches are inviting. Another big upside is that most people speak English due to the number of tourists that visit every year. This makes everything from ordering food to getting help with directions much easier as the language barrier is not a big issue.

That being said, you should learn some basic Spanish vocabulary to help make life that much easier. Besides, using the native language will show your hosts that you appreciate their culture and are trying to connect with them.

For those looking for adventure

If you’re someone who enjoys spending your holiday not only sipping chilled wine by a pool, Lanzarote might be just up your alley.

There is plenty of things available to see and do, regardless of whether you prefer going on hikes during the day or if you’d rather explore what’s hiding beneath the waves. With everything from snorkelling to windsurfing available, Lanzarote has become famous for what it can offer to those looking to quench their thirst for adventure.

Incredible food

Lanzarote also offers a wide array of restaurants offering everything from incredible Spanish cuisine to restaurants with a heavy influence from its African neighbours.

Even if the food in the Canary Islands might not be the main reason that people choose to visit, if you spend the time doing your research you shouldn’t have any issues finding interesting culinary experiences.

Book well in advance

Although Lanzarote isn’t the most popular island in the Canaries, it’s still a beautiful destination that many people love to explore. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to book your holiday to Spain as far in advance as you can to ensure that you’re able to get the best prices on transportation and a reservation at your preferred hotel.
