Lanzarote Tourist Information Website
Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and lies just 70 miles off the coast of Saharan Africa. Creating an enviable year round climate that is characterized by extremely low rainfall (on average just 9mm per month) and temperatures that rarely fall below 20c-even in the winter months.
Lanzarote also boasts enormous natural beauty and great contrasts in scenery. From the and lava fields and spent cones of the Timanfaya National Park in the South of the island, through to the green and verdant Valley of a Thousand Palms in the North. And as the island is so manageably small it is easy to hire a car and discover Lanzarote's many delights.
