When you start choosing which one of the Islas Canarias to explore first, one of your favorites must be Lanzarote. It is also protected by UNESCO and is considered a biosphere reserve. The capital city is called Arrecife with population of a little more than fifty-five thousand, which is approximately 40% of the population in Lanzarote. Other destinations are Puerto Calero, Costa Teguise, Famara, Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca. Each of them holds part of the charm Lanzarote can enchant you with.
Tourists can choose between numerous options for entertainment, and one of the most notable is the camel ride. This is a very popular and at the same time pretty unusual way to explore the island. However, tourists can feel the vibe of Lanzarote from a different angle, which promises to be an experience for a lifetime. One of the sites you can view are the many caves and caverns, where you can have a romantic dinner or simply to relax. Of course, you can enjoy scuba diving and witness the marvelous aquatic flora and fauna below the energetic ocean surrounding the island of Lanzarote. Moreover, tourists can go on a dolphin and whale spottings and see species like pilot whales, sperm whales, finbacks and dolphins of course.

The climate is typical for the region and for all Islas Canarias. The altitudes are a little higher with a desert type of climate, but overall it is mild throughout the entire region. This makes Lanzarote a suitable destination to visit during all months of the year. Such weather conditions have impact on the cuisine as well, making dishes like Papas Arrugadas con Mojo (the famous Canarian potatoes with sauce), grilled octopus and even goat meat a treat. There is also local sea food you shouldn’t miss. The infamous local hake, which is grilled whole and the limpets, which are Canarian shells that like to stick to the rocky shores. The local cooks prepare it with sauce (yes, the green Mojo again) and serve it at the fast-food type of places. Amazing taste.
Make sure to tick Lanzarote off your list, when you decide to visit Islas Canarias, as it will leave a constant mark in your mind, captivating tourists with a variety of different entertainments and leisure.
