Airport transfers in Lanzarote
The fourth largest of the idyllic Canary Islands, Lanzarote emerged around 15 million years ago following a series of fiery volcanic eruptions and rock formations. However, the pace of life on this beautiful island is far less explosive than its origins. The temperate climate coupled with a relaxed way of life make Lanzarote perfect for a summer getaway.
The capital of Lanzarote has been the harbour city of Arrecife since 1852. This fascinating city has a rich, diverse history and is home to two landmark castles; Castillo de San Gabriel and Castillo de San Jose. Both castles are favourite for tourists and are well worth a visit. Since the establishment of the harbour in the 18th century, the city has developed pedestrianised precincts, shops and restaurants but has little else by way of attractions. If it’s action you’re looking for, Arrecife may not be the place for you.
For the sun-seekers, the resort of Puerto del Carmen boasts arguably the finest beach on the island. Lying south-west of Arrecife, the resort has 6km of unbroken golden sands with a long promenade running parallel. Opposite the promenade you’ll find restaurants and shops galore. Looking to try your hand at watersports? Carmen offers snorkeling and diving for those who wish to take an up close and personal look at swathes of tropical fish roaming the coast. Cycling, deep-sea fishing and horseback riding are popular activities in or around Puerto del Carmen. One thing is for sure, you won’t be bored in this lively town.

Venture south to the Punta del Papagayo, down at the southern tip of Lanzarote. Take in the gorgeous sandy coves before heading to the amazing beach at Playa del Papagayo. If you have time, make your way a little further west to the quaint resort of Playa Blanca where a white sand beach awaits. Playa Blanca offers 1km of shops and restaurants serving locally sourced seafood delivered from the nearby fishing port.
Beaches, restaurants and shopping are at the heart of the other main tourist resort on the island, Costa Teguise. The beaches here are a little smaller and the town is low rise, but what you lose in views you make up for in lovely restaurants. The resort is also home to the Centro Comercial Las Cucharas shopping centre should you find yourself short of any essentials.
For a day trip, look no further than the Timanfaya National Park and the Montanas del Fuego (The Fire Mountains). Keep your distance from the volcano chasm as guides throw water in, await the water boiling and witness the fountain of steam come pouring out. If you work up an appetite during the exploration, the Restaurant del Diablo offers dishes cooked over an erupting volcanic BBQ. This is a spectacular culinary treat well worth sampling.
Horticulturalists will love the Jardin de los Cactus, or Cactus Garden.
With over 1400 varieties of cacti, many of which boast beautiful colourful flowers, the garden is vision to behold. For the flexible, take a guided tour through the Cuevas de los Verdes to Jameos del Agua. Anybody with bad backs or problems bending are advised to give this tour a wide berth, as it involves crawling through small passages. At the end of the tour there is a glorious blue lake which is home to tiny white blind crabs.
When you land at Guasimeta airport, four miles south west of Arrecife, TaxiFinders.com will get your holiday off to the ideal start. Hassle free transportation for you and your luggage will take away any inconvenience of public transport and group transfer coaches and get you to your accommodation with the minimum of fuss.
