Lanzarote, part of the Canary Islands archipelago of islands, is located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of West Africa. This volcanic island has plenty to offer for those seeking family holidays in a great environment.
The island offers several excellent beaches, including Papagayo and El Golfo, all set in a fascinating volcanic landscape, with attractive hardy shrubs on the sloping hillsides. With the water temperature a moderate 19.5º C virtually all year round, swimming and boating are popular activities for the whole family.
Lanzarote is an eco-conscious island and the various child friendly hotels and resorts have been built to enhance the landscape, rather than make the area into a concrete jungle as has happened elsewhere in Spain.
For those with older children, the island offers fascinating art centres to visit, including the César Manrique Foundation, which was originally the artist’s home and is now a fascinating place to visit, built into the volcanic rock. There is plenty on offer in the way of water sports, hiking and mountain cycling among the spectacular scenery.
The whole family will enjoy an underwater safari adventure on the Yellow Submarine, based in Puerto Calero and Rancho Texas is a great theme park located in Puerto del Carmen with loads of attractions for the kids.
With much in the way of baby friendly accommodation, Lanzarote is an unusual and attractive destination for all where parents can relax and enjoy peace of mind during the holidays.
