Take some time out for you and your partner and visit Lanzarote, an island ripe for romance. Plentiful in places to soak up the sun or consume a cocktail, the island has holidaymakers flocking to it. These are some of the best destinations for Lanzarote holidays, so have a look and get booking your next retreat.
Timanfaya National Park
Home to a hilly, dusty, alien-like landscape, Timanfaya National Park stands out from Lanzarote’s many sandy beaches. The iconic red soil that the park is known for is the result of over 100 volcanoes erupting in the 1700s which the land never recovered from.
There are many tours across the park, offering an in-depth look at the history of the park and the animals that live in its waters. Visit the park and pretend to be the star in your favourite sci fi. Then settle down with your loved one for the most surreal and eerie picnic you’ve ever had.
Home to only 500 residents, this island just a couple of kilometres off the north of Lanzarote is perfect for a romantic day trip. Graciosa’s economy is driven by tourism and fishing industries, which means there’s always plenty to do and eat. Whether you fancy a quiet, romantic stroll along the beach followed by cocktails by the sea or an action-packed afternoon of water sports with a healthy dinner of grilled fish afterwards, Graciosa will oblige.
Costa Teguise was once the home of famous Lanzarote artist and nature lover César Manrique and you can even visit his old house. It’s been transformed into an art gallery and museum to showcase Manrique’s unique home design skills and his lesser-known works.
Manrique’s decision to build around, and on top of, volcanic lava flow has resulted in strange bubble-like rooms with rough, rocky walls that will have you rethinking everything you thought you knew about interior design. It all makes this unusual house and the connected gallery a must for anyone staying in the beautiful, nature-filled Costa Teguise. You may even come back with some ideas for your own little love nest!
Puerto del Carmen
Stay in Puerto del Carmen and take a walk to the town’s old harbour for an evening of people watching with a cocktail in hand while the sun goes down. The sound of the water lapping and the constant movement of people from, one place to another will have you thinking about the true romance of travel. Try some of the fresh local lobster if you really want to indulge.
Lanzarote’s capital, Arrecife, has the best of both worlds. It’s compact but still offers all the conveniences and nightlife of larger cities. Spend your days sunning yourself on the beach and your evenings at one of the many lively bars or restaurants on offer.
Whether you’re taking a romantic holiday, on a travel date, just wanting to get out and explore or anything in between, Lanzarote’s relaxed Mediterranean vibe will make you feel right at home. Grab a drink, a sun lounger and enjoy!
