During the coldest months of the year we tend to look for sun and beach destinations that allow us to enjoy an irresistibly warm climate. However, to find this we don’t have to cross the Atlantic and travel for more than 10 hours, and we Spaniards are lucky enough to have one of the best winter destinations just a stone’s throw away: the Canary Islands.
Lanzarote is one of the most visited islands in the Canary archipelago all year round, both for its very warm climate and its beaches, its strange and arid vegetation and also its excellent leisure conditions and services for tourism.
Whether it is summer or winter, if you have a few days off, we recommend you choose the island as your destination. Get to know some of its main coasts with us.
– Beaches of Puerto del Carmen: This charming little fishing village has become one of the island’s focal points. Its calm waters, its golden sand dotted here and there with rocks and its magnificent environment of services make it a perfect option for tourism. It is located in the municipality of Tías.
– Playas de Haría: This is a truly peaceful beach in comparison to the previous one, a coastline of very clean waters and golden or dark sand (of volcanic origin) surrounded by high mountains.
– Beaches of Arrecife: This is the most inhabited and busiest area of the island throughout the year, its administrative and commercial centre. Here you will find eminently urban beaches, with a good cultural, leisure and service offer perfectly combined with the magnificent conditions of the beach. It is five minutes from the airport.
– Playas de Teguise: This is the second most important area as far as tourism is concerned and, like the previous one, it knows how to gracefully combine the natural landscape with tourist services. It is also a perfect area for water sports such as windsurfing (international championships are held here).
Other important areas of Lanzarote that are definitely worth visiting are the beaches of Yaiza, the small island of Graciosa, the beaches of Tinajo or those of San Bartolomé.
