Lanzarote, the Canary Islands
Lanzarote is one of the eight Canary Islands, and was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 1993. It’s a great place to walk among volcanoes - there are said to be more than a hundred of them. When you explore the island, you'll find tucked away places where you can be completely alone with your partner. Unwind and forget about everyday routine as you immerse yourself in peace and tranquillity. But as well as wonderful landscapes, the island has lots more to offer to make sure that you’ll never be bored. To see this incredible volcanic paradise, head for Timanfaya National Park, where the rock contrasts sharply with the colour of the sea. On the Volcanes Route in Lanzarote you can visit Caldera Blanca, the Volcán del Cuervo or the Volcán de la Corona. At La Geria you can see how the islanders harness their volcanic heritage. In this protected landscape, grapevines are cultivated in an unusual way: in conical depressions. The result is a sweet white wine, so you can drink to the flame of love never going out. The island’s beaches are your next taste of paradise. To name a few, Famara beach is perfect for surfing and a stroll along the shore, then there’s Papagayo beach with its turquoise waters, and the Teguise coast. The setting is otherworldly, rather like something from Mars or the moon, and will be one of the standout features of your getaway that you’ll want to see again.
