Just 20 km wide and 60km long and sitting less than 100 miles off the coast of Africa. Lanzarote enjoys a wonderfully mild climate with annual average temperatures of 22 degrees and less than 6 inches of rainfall.
Being a volcanic island the landscape appears in many areas much as it did just after the eruptions in the 19th century. Some films have been shot in the “lunar” landscape!
Lanzarote boasts the longest volcanic tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km long and includes the La Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua. (open to visitors)
Despite the volcanic nature of the island, Lanzarote has several beautiful white beaches such as at Playa Blanca and Papagayo. The building restrictions on the height of properties and the almost uniform use of white paint on most buildings makes for a wonderful contrast with the volcanic landscape and Palm trees. The overall effect is startling and clean.
There are two Golf courses those being located in Tias and Costa Teguise.
