Lanzarote may lack some of the varied terrain and the rural charm of the other Canary Islands but it is a brilliant location for those seeking golden beaches, incredible sights and good value resorts. For convenience and variety, holidaymakers should consider all inclusive holidays to Lanzarote. Lanzarote has 170km of coastline with golden sandy beaches breaking up the mostly rocky shoreline. The pick of the bunch are located around the Punta del Papayago, a short drive from the Castillo de las Colorades. If you venture a few kilometres beyond Puerto del Carmen, you can go scuba diving around shipwrecks and sample the beaches at Playa Blanca and Los Pocillas. During the summer months the island is bustling. Towards the end of the summer season is the year’s biggest fiesta in celebration of the capital’s patron saint - San Gines. In 1993 Lanzarote was declared a UNESCO world biosphere reserve and holidaymakers should take advantage of their time to see the work of artist and architect, Cesar Manrique. A visit to the late artist’s house at the top of a volcanic trail should be high on any holidaymaker’s agenda. The Timanfaya National Park is an attraction that can be explored by foot or on the back of a camel, depending on how adventurous you're feeling. Holidays to Lanzarote may lack the greenery and undulating terrain of neighbouring Islands for visitors who like walks, but it does have a unique offering - volcanic fields. Visitors are strongly advised to travel with a guide when visiting the volcanoes. For a less hazardous hike, the coastal route of the island is open to all. The area around the Costa Teguise, just north of Arrecife has a concentration of restaurants and nightlife with a large number of 3 star all inclusives that offer great value for money. Nightlife is relatively limited in the capital, Arrecife. For the best nightlife in Lanzarote, the young (and young at heart) should head down to Puerto del Carmen, south of Arrecife. No matter what the budget, those who decide upon Lanzarote holidays will find a wide choice of hotels that sit just behind the beautiful beaches of the Playa Blanca. For affordable four star luxury, visitors can book an all inclusive stay at the Lanzasur Club Bungalows or the three star Don Paco Castilla Apartments, which stand just 300 meters away from the beaches at Playa de los Pocillas. The apartments are a 10 minute drive from the airport so visitors need not delay the start of their holidays. Guests that go for an all inclusive package can play everything from videogames and table tennis to experiencing enjoyable daytime and evening entertainment suitable for all age groups.
