The concept of a summer holiday is an appealing one for the majority of us – escaping the humdrum of everyday life is an enticing prospect at some point during the year, being able to recharge the batteries and let the stresses of home trickle away. The main decision you will have to make is what destination to choose, and with a myriad of options available to suit every budget, it can be an incredibly hard decision to make. If you have your sights set on the Canary Islands, take a look at the flights to Lanzarote that are available online – as the sunniest island in the archipelago, you will be perfectly placed to enjoy a well-deserved stint in the sun this year!
As the closest island to the North African coast, Lanzarote benefits from year-round sunshine and pleasant temperatures, no matter when you choose to head there. During the heights of summer, temperatures can soar into the 30s, while during the spring and autumn, you can expect temperatures in the 20s, with a mild breeze accompaniment, perfect if you don’t wish to swelter!
While one of the major draws to the island is its beaches and family-friendly resorts, Lanzarote also has a whole host of attractions away from the coast, too, making it an incredibly versatile island that has something for everyone. Puerto del Carmen is a hit with partygoers looking for a clubbing paradise, while Costa Teguise is ideal for families travelling with small children who are hoping to find a laidback resort that has all of the required amenities on offer.
Peel yourself away from the resorts and you can enjoy a bounty of excursions including the Timanfaya Volcano Park, which is arguably the island’s most popular tourist attraction. The natural beauty of this stark and barren landscape is out of this world and needs to be seen to be believed. If you’re looking for something a little more thrilling though, there’s an abundance of watersports available in all of the major resorts, as well as a waterpark in Costa Teguise in which kids of all ages (including grownup ones) can test their mettle on the flumes, kamikaze slides and chutes.
Whatever your reason for a visit – whether you’ve been to the island before or you’re a first time traveller – Lanzarote will have something in store for you.
