Lanzarote is a Spanish island known for its beaches, year-round warm weather, volcanic landscape, and beaches. The intriguing island has great beaches, plenty of hotels and restaurants, and interesting sights.
Here’s why you should choose Lanzarote for your next holiday.
Located in Playa Blanca, the Museo Atlantico is Europe’s first underwater museum, filled with an assortment of sunken sculptures by Jason deCaires Taylor. The museum can be visited by anyone with any diving experience, even offering introductory diving classes in the morning so novices can properly visit in the afternoon.
Museo de la Pirateria
The modest yet captivating museum is situated in the impressive 16 century Castillo de Santa Barbara. The oldest castle in the Canaries is on Guanapay peak with great views across the plains. The exhibits detail the many attacks the island suffered at the hands of pirates from across Africa and Europe during 16 century. If you’re travelling with kids, this is a great place to check out.
Fundacion Cesar Manrique (Gallery in Tahiche)
The gallery, which is 6 km north of Arrecife, was home to Manrique who has a posthumous status on Lanzarote. An entire gallery is devoted to Manrique along with minor works by the likes of Picasso, Miro, and Chillida-some of his contemporaries.
At least seven buses stop here daily on their way to Teguise from Arrecife. Watch for the large mobile sculpture by Manrique that dominates the roundabout and retain your ticket.
If you’re thinking of a holiday that involves relaxing and losing yourself amongst pristine beaches, historical sights, and beautiful natural sights, this is the ideal destination.
