Dining on the island is always a fantastic experience and the local cuisine is definitely well worth a try. Local food is a combination of traditional Spanish recipes with a Latin American and African influence and the basis of Canarian cuisine is a variety of fresh vegetables, fruit and fish. The traditional island food is Gofio, which is a sort of flour that is made from toasted cereals, which is often used as a substitute for bread. If you dont fancy the local cuisine there is plenty else on offer such as fast food restaurants, English, Chinese, Italian and French. Many restaurants also offer a childrens menu.
Some resorts are much livelier than others and provide a great selection of bars, pubs and clubs. Puerto del Carmen and Costa Teguise are very lively resorts and you will have no problem finding a bar, disco or club where you can dance until the sun comes up. Many other resorts also have bars and restaurants that provide live music and entertainment. Most hotels also have their own bars and animation team that provide nightly entertainment for all the family.
Lanzarote is an island filled with things to do and see. Steeped in history there are old castles that guarded the island from pirate attacks and museums filled with artefacts from the islands past. Volcanoes also play a huge part in the history of the shaping of the island and a visit to Timanfaya Fire Mountain is a must as it has been declared a national park and is an amazing sight to see. Camels are available to take you up the high trek where at the top you will be greeted with amazing views of the volcanic landscape. At the summit there is a restaurant where the food is cooked from the heat that comes from the volcano itself! The beaches in Lanzarote vary from volcanic sand and rocks to soft white sand. If you tired of lounging on the beach and soaking up the sun, there are plenty of water sports available. Large Aqua Park in Costa Teguise offers pools, flumes and water rides for kids and adults of all ages. Please note the water is not heated so be sure to check temperatures outside of the summer months as they may drop.
With so much to see and do, Lanzarote is a haven for sun worshippers, sports enthusiasts and those that enjoy history and culture.
