will probably be within an easy walk of the beach. Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen, and the Playa de las Cucharas are three of the most popular tourist destinations for water sports, sunbathing, and playing in the sand. Puerta del Carmen on Lanzarote's southern shore is a hotspot for bars, al fresco dining, and nightlife so it's the place to be if you are looking for a good time.
Amazing Outdoor Attractions
Lanzarote's biggest draw is the range of outdoor activities you'll find year-round on the island. A self or professionally-guided tour of Timanfaya National Park takes you through the rugged, colorful lava formations in a desolate landscape almost entirely devoid of plant life. If you visit the north coast, you'll want to see the panoramic vistas off Mirador del Rio, a former Spanish artillery position looking over the chain of smaller Canary Islands.
The island is equally fascinating below the surface. Local Canary Islanders used the Cueva de los Verdes to hide from pirates, and the Los Jameos de Agua is an impressive network of caves, pools, and a nightclub that shouldn't be missed. And perhaps the strangest looking place in Lanzarote is The Charco, a semi-circular deep green lagoon surrounded by black volcanic rocks near the village of El Golfo.
Beaches and More
For family travelers staying in a Lanzarote timeshare, the beaches are always a top choice for things to do. Additionally, the Guinate Tropical Park near the Corono Volcano has many exotic birds and animals which delight visitors of all ages. And for the wine connoisseur, the Designation of Origin (DO) Malvasia wines are the island's most attractive export, and a trip to the local wineries is a must.
The busiest season to visit a Lanzarote timeshare is in the winter, from December through February, when it attracts warm weather-seekers from across the globe, and also in the late summer when many European travelers take their annual holiday to the island, then slows in the late fall and spring.
