Destination guide

No, we promise you haven't transported to another planet

As one of Spain's Canary Islands, Lanzarote is situated off the coast of West Africa, and known for its gorgeous year-round warm weather, expansive sandy beaches, and dramatic volcanic landscape. The island is a designated UNESCO biosphere reserve, thanks to its strong historical relationship between nature and humans—an honor the locals take to heart. Opt for a Lanzarote vacation rental that celebrates its surroundings, whether you're looking out over black lava fields that seem almost otherworldly, or taking in the sights of a lush, palm-filled valley leading down to the sea.


Grab your best beach buddies and head for the coast

The best way to spend the day in Lanzarote is by the sea, so start scouting out the beaches now. For the members of your travel squad who just can't sit still, send them out on a hike around the island, or arm them with binoculars for some stellar local birdwatching. Explore the lava caves scattered throughout the island, or rent a boat and hit the high seas with the whole family. Wherever you book your Lanzarote vacation rental, plan to spend your days on the coast and your nights under the stars.


Have we found the official posterchild for winter sun?

The weather in Lanzarote is consistently pleasant almost year round, with the high season for the islands generally coming between November and April, thanks to dry, sunny days and cool nights. This makes it the perfect getaway for anyone craving some wintertime Vitamin D, although July and August are also peak months for travelers looking for their summer vacation. Book a Lanzarote vacation rental in the shoulder seasons of May and June or September and October, and watch the crowds thin out and prices drop.

Natural features

An island that, quite literally, has it all

Lanzarote is both the northernmost and the easternmost island of the Canaries, and situated only 78 miles off the coast of Africa. The center of the island features the Timanfaya National Park, while the coast is comprised of a mixture of both sandy and rocky beaches. The landscape is just as diverse as its coast, with caves, 2 mountain ranges, and a desert. It's not uncommon to find yourself looking out from your car over an expansive, green oasis full of palm trees one moment, and a rolling black lava field the very next.
