The best of Lanzarote

The 13 best things to do in Lanzarote

Ignore that whole "Lanzagrotty" thing from a few years ago: the best things to do in Lanzarote are fun, exciting and unique. Swerve overdeveloped areas, like Playa del Carmen and Costa Teguise, and Lanzarote is a wild, arid wonderland waiting to be explored. The beautiful volcanic Canary Island is packed with palm-filled towns, whitewashed abodes, beaches, fresh fish and cacti. You’ll find the indelible magic touch of influential artist César Manrique everywhere here. He not only left several fabulous homes and attractions to visit, but a legacy that prevents all new buildings being above two-storeys high. Go for a drive through the north and the interior of the island, and you’ll be all over Lanzarote’s breezy boho vibe. Done something on this list and loved it?
