Lanzarote never ceases to amaze and surprise; the nature of its tourist development, although of very high quality, has developed sympathetically to the natural environment and culture of this fascinating island; landscapes vary dramatically from towering volcanoes (a visit to the Timanfaya National Park is a must on any trip to Lanzarote) to the lush, pine clad Valley of 1,000 Pines in the northern district of Haria. Nowhere is a better example of how these two factors can work together than the creations of local architect, Cesare Manrique, who worked tirelessly to create wonders such as Jameos del Agua, a natural underground lava bubble whose lake is a natural habitat of endangered white crabs where you can enjoy a coffee or even a concert in the auditorium and Mirador del Rio, which offers truly panoramic views across shimmering waters to the neighbouring island of La Graciosa; Manrique’s home in Tahiche is now a museum commemorating his work, and is in itself a monument to his achievements, being an intriguing masterpiece of architecture carved from its volcanic surroundings and housing works by Manrique’s contemporaries, such as Picasso and Dali. Lanzarote offers a range of aqua parks, a golf course, theme parks, camel rides – as well as, of course, endless sandy beaches and there is certainly plenty for all members of the family to do here. Getting away from the crowds is easy; take a drive along the coast and choose one of the secluded coves for bathing, or feast on delicious, freshly caught fish at one of the beach restaurants in El Golfo. For wine buffs a trip through La Geria, the wine-growing region, is a must – Lanzarote produces some excellent wines which can be sampled at the many bodegas that dot the landscape.
