Instead, it has an elegant marina that oozes luxury, and plenty of watersports to keep visitors busy. If you like your getaways sophisticated, great value holidays to Puerto Calero could be right up your street!

Places to Go

Los Verdes Caves
Take a trip to the north of the island and visit the Los Verdes caves that were formed around 3000 years ago. The Corona volcanic eruption that occurred left behind a tunnel that is 6km long and one of the longest underground tunnels in the world. Native Guanches used to hide here from pirates, but nowadays, the molten rock is artificially lit to show that every crevice is a sight to behold.

Timanfaya National Park

Take a camel ride to the peaks of Timanfaya, located within the eponymous national park that dominates the south-west of the island. The landscapes are completely breathtaking and you will get a unique experience of feeling like you're wandering Martian lands! Make sure you give yourself enough time to dine at the restaurant at the summit ' the food here is cooked using the natural heat emitted from the volcano and a totally unique experience!

Nestled in the heart of the resort, the Whale and Dolphin Museum has a whole host of fascinating artefacts on display, including whole whale and dolphin skeletons, biological exhibitions, models and interactive displays ' perfect to while away an afternoon, escaping the midday sun at the same time.

Things to Do

Join the Scuba Diving School
Novice divers can take advantage of the excellent tuition available at the diving school, while those who have had a little more experience can hire their own kit and explore the ocean bed at their own pace. With a few fantastic local dive sites, scuba and snorkel enthusiasts will be in their element.

Hike on the Lanzarote Dunes
The rugged coastlines that blanket the island are outstandingly beautiful and a perfect option for a little adventure if you fancy some time away from the tourist-centred resorts.
