Lanzarote has many places to see, it also has spectacular beaches where you can spend a completely relaxed day and it is also essential that you spend at least one full day visiting the paradise of the Isla de la Graciosa and Fuerteventura.

We remind you that you can enjoy them with any of our excursions, so you will avoid crowds and queues to enter, since our buses have priority to enter the centers.

What is the best time to travel to Lanzarote?
Any month is good to travel to Lanzarote since it enjoys good temperatures all year round, but we especially recommend May and October. The temperatures are fabulous and there is not so much tourism. In winter, especially at Christmas, it is high season and it is a real joy to enjoy almost summer temperatures at that time of year.
In the event that you prefer to have everything within walking distance and forget about driving, we recommend choosing your accommodation in one of the main tourist areas of Lanzarote, where you will find access to golden sand beaches and calm waters, as well as a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment venues.
Playa Blanca, in the south of the island, is the sunniest area, with magnificent golden sand beaches, restaurants on the seafront and a long promenade to enjoy pleasant walks at sunset.
People with reduced mobility may prefer accommodation closer to the downtown area, since the town extends along the coast. This tourist enclave has several golden sand beaches, connected by its pleasant promenade, and also offers visitors a magnificent offer of restaurants, cafes, shops, and other services that will undoubtedly make your stay pleasant. and calm.
Puerto del Carmen, on the central coast of the island, 15 minutes from the airport, is the best place also in the event that the mobility of any of the people traveling is reduced, we recommend choosing accommodation in the area of the main avenue or towards the end of Matagorda, where the unevenness of the environment is less pronounced.
The work of Cesar Manrique in the Centers of Art, Culture and Tourism of the Cabildo de Lanzarote enhances in these spaces the beauty, culture and unique landscape of the island, from a masterful intervention in the environment that fuses art and nature. Located in the municipality of San Bartolomé, in the agricultural heart of the island, the Casa-Museo del Campesino, is another place that cannot be missing when planning your holidays in Lanzarote. A space conceived by César Manrique in honor of the cultural and agricultural tradition of the island, loaded with the most traditional essence of Lanzarote and where you can immerse yourself in the culture, history, rural architecture of the island and taste a wide selection of tapas and typical dishes of the insular gastronomy.
If you travel in the middle of September, on September 15, the celebration of the day of the Virgin of Los Dolores takes place, a festive date on the island of Lanzarote, which is celebrated in the municipality of Tinajo, in the town of Mancha Blanca, where the Church of the Virgin of Dolores is located. In most towns you will find some kind of celebration and families get together to enjoy the procession of the Virgen de Los Dolores together.
