Lanzarote's a lively island full of dead volcanoes

Welcome to Lanzarote, the "Island of Eternal Spring" due to its endless sunny days. Lanzarote's also known for its beautiful beaches and cool volcanic landscape. In fact, Apollo astronauts studied the Timanfaya National Park before they went to the moon, because their geographies are so similiar. If you're booking a Lanzarote vacation rental, you probably won't make it to mainland Spain, which is a good 1,200 miles away. But there's plenty of nightlife and Spanish culture to enjoy, and caverns and lava tunnels to explore.

You'll lava this island's nightlife and beaches

You'll have a beachin' time relaxing, exploring, and dancing on Lanzarote. This once-hot landscape now makes for some cool sightseeing as you trek around the barren lava fields, coves, and caverns. You'll find wide beaches and lively bars and clubs on the island's west and south sides, with port cities like Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife. There are also restaurants that feature fresh-off-the-boat seafood and local Canarian wine. Carnival is a popular celebration that happens in February or March (the actual month varies), and features street parades and performances, great costumes, and of course, loud celebrations!

It's not the moon, but this national park sure looks like it

The island has an explosive history, with volcanoes erupting in the 1700s that left a quarter of the island covered in lava. You can see evidence of this close to a number of Lanzarote vacation rentals, or visit Timanfaya National Park for more lunar-like landscapes. You can also check out Cueva de los Verdes, a colorful lava tube with a concert hall. The Cesar Manrique Foundation, set in the architect's former home, features Spanish artists and some nifty landscaping at the top of a volcanic trail. Or ride some water slides and ponies at the Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park and zoo.

Lanzarote, you are my sunshine, pretty much all the time

Lanzarote has a subtropical-desert climate, which in non-meteorology terms means hot and dry. The island boasts an average temperature of 75 degrees and mucho sol for the whole year, with summer days soaring to the 90s. There's really not a bad time to visit, although you can expect it to be busier during the summer and in early spring, for Carnival. Occasional showers dampen the land in the winter, and depending on where your Lanzarote vacation rental is, you might see a dust storm in the spring. On the west and south sides, the ocean water is quite comfortable for swimming.

Lunar-like lands with black sand beaches and white crabs

Did we mention volcanoes? Lanzarote is full of them, but you don't need to worry about anything active. The last eruption was a good 200 years ago, so you can get an up-close-and-personal look at the neat lava fields full of cones, craters, and rock formations. There are also a few black-sand beaches too. If you visit the lava tubes, you might catch a glimpse of the tiny albino crabs that only live on Lanzarote. They're as blind as the bats that also live here.
