Enjoy the great outdoors in Lanzarote
With its exotic black sandy beaches, regular sunshine and cooling sea breezes, Lanzarote is a destination that is best enjoyed outdoors. There are a number of cheap all inclusive holidays available now that make it possible to enjoy the outdoor activities on offer on the island without breaking the bank.
Whether you prefer to spend your days beside the water, strolling through the historic towns and villages, or working up an appetite with an energetic walk across the volcanic landscape, there are plenty of outdoor pursuits to keep you entertained whatever your preferred pace.
The consistently warm climate and rugged terrain has made Lanzarote the training destination of choice for a number of elite level athletes. While it's unlikely that you share their sporting prowess, you may wish to take advantage of the dramatic landscape and spectacular scenery that are ideally suited to cyclists and hikers.
There are a number of specially organised tours showcasing some of the best spots on the island. Numerous riding centres are also available around the resort, with an extensive network of bridleways enabling horse riders to enjoy the scenery from the saddle.
With miles of sandy beaches and the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean on your doorstep, a trip to Lanzarote is also a great time to try your hand at water sports. As one of Europe's top surfing destinations, the island is home to numerous surf schools including Volcanic Surf, where you can receive expert tuition to learn how to ride a wave.
Beneath the ocean's surface there's also plenty to explore. The same volcanic activity that sculpted the mountainous landscape has also created an intriguing array of caves, lava rivers and arches of black volcanic rock. Blue Hole is one of the most popular spots with divers, allowing you to get up close to marine life such as the stunning angel shark and barracuda.
If you prefer to enjoy your sports at a more sedate space, there are plenty of top class golf courses, which are very popular with tourists and also host international competitions from time to time.
The Lanzarote Golf Resort at Puerta Del Carmen features beautiful ocean scenery for golfers to enjoy while playing a round or two. Plus, the whole family can join in, as there’s even a summer golf school for children.
