The national park Timanfaya is probably the most famous of the island together with the fire mountains (Montañas del Fuego) Here you can barbecue on lava and you can enjoy spectacular effects when you throw water in one of the many lava holes (see the photo). The temperature is at some places over 140°C at only 10cm under the ground surface! The latest volcanic eruption on Lanzarote was between 1730 and 1736 where more then 200 Km² area was covered with lava. Lanzarote is together with Fuerteventura the oldest islands of the Canaries and is as well called the Black Pearl of the Ocean, this because the dark volcanic rocks and sand on the island. North of the island you can find the 4 smaller islets of the Chinijo Archipelago. The beaches on Lanzarote are famous for wind surfing. Lanzarote Volcano Excursions

Costa Teguise
Situated on the north east coast of the island and about a 20 minutes drive north from Puerto del Carmen. Costa Teguise was planned from the start as a tourist area and was well laid out with good access and parking. There are five fine beaches offering a wide range of water sports including windsurfing and the resort also has a reasonable sized water park to keep both young and the not so young happy. There is also an 18-hole golf course close by. Costa Teguise has plenty of shops, English bars and restaurants. At dusk there is limited action with the majority being held within the various hotels and apartment complexes. There is a nightclub, disco and casino at the hotel Oasis. It is an ideal resort for those wanting a great beach packed holiday but like to sleep at night.

Playa Blanca
Playa Blanca is situated at the very south of the island. It is the newest and fastest developing area of the island. Loads of new building going on but be warned, they are spread out. There are just a few nice but small local beaches in town and the beautiful beaches of Papagayo 7 Km outside, which is mainly used by nudist. Playa Blanca is a pretty town with the usual shops, bars and restaurants based around the old fishing port and is recommended for anyone wanting a relaxing and quiet holiday.
