Stayed in Puerto del Carmen. The place is buzzing. Loads of bars and as there are a lot of middle aged and older people, there’s not a hint of bother. Food and drinks are cheap if you look around and no shortage of choice. Visit the harbour for Irish bars and local restaurants. The place is great for walking. Visit the marina in Puerto Calero and have an ice cold beer in Buda bar; it’s a great place to chill out and watch the world go by. You can also get the water bus back to the old town for €6

Lanzarote is beautiful! The scenery is stunning and there are so many great things to see. It would be a crime to go there just to sunbathe and stay in a resort. Get out there and see the stunning coastline and voocanic features.

The eastern most Canary Island Lanzarote has a desert climate and is known for its year-round warm weather, beaches and volcanic landscape. Interesting place to visit with this varied landscape.

When it comes to island vibes, romantic dinners, and amazing scenery, Lanzarote delivers! My now husband and I decided to take a trip of a lifetime and travel to a place with the "we probably will never get a chance to go back!" mentality in our minds and take our honeymoon in Southern Spain and Lanzarote. Lanzarote did not disappoint! With its black rocks, splashing blue-green water and stucco white buildings, Lanzarote is a minilimistic, environmentalists haven. The entire island is sustainably managed due to the hard temperament of the soil, and it is covered with black, hard volcanic rock. It gives the island a very rough, earthy feeling. I love everything earthy and although I am used to the plush green forests of Santa Cruz Cali, the stark difference of this landscape was stunning. We stayed at the Royal Princsesa Yaiza Resort in Playa Blanca right next to the beach and it was magnificent and by far the best resort I have ever been. It is highly recommended with a very decent price tag! Much like many island cities, you can enjoy a very long strip of restaurants and stores along the coast. My husband and I stayed closer to the coast near this strip for most of our stay because it was absolutely beautiful to eat right next to the sea! You can also go inland where buildings become a little more sparse and you enter farm country, which is equally beautiful in its very agricultural way. :) It was so interesting learning about their farming techniques because of their very different terrain. I am huge into nutrition so when we visited the Aloe Lanzarote Museum, I was highly intrigues to find out that most residents eat aloe everyday! I already plan on growing my own aloe plant!
