Lanzarote, called ‘Conejera’ by the islanders, is also known as the island of 100 volcanoes. Its volcanic origin has created a landscape with more than 300 volcanoes. It is the most eastern island of the Canarian archipelago and it is situated very close to the African coast.
Lanzarote is also a unique example of how one single man can have so much influence on the landscape, developing it for tourism while maintaining its natural beauty and history. César Manrique is hailed as the island’s internationally renowned son. He left his signature everywhere… as sculptor, painter, architect and environmentalist.
With a good deal of flatland, Lanzarote is the least mountainous of the Canary Islands. Due to its low level, Lanzarote is below the level of humid and warm air. In general, this results in a dry climate with little rain. The average temperature is 24° in August and 17° in January. The sea temperature varies between 17° and 24° at the surface.
With a warm and sunny weather all around the year, Lanzarote is the perfect holiday destination!
