This hot and sunny island, with some of the best beaches in the Canaries and a dramatic inland volcanic landscape, is just 120 kilometres off the African coast and the warm winds that blow from here are ideal for windsurfing.
Whether you want to relax on soft sands and soak up the sun or enjoy some superb water sports, Lanzarote is perfect. There are a number of scuba-diving schools, especially at Costa Teguise. Of course, if all you want is the occasional cooling dip, the clear turquoise waters are sure to tempt you off your sunbed.
