Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and 70 miles off the coast of North Africa. It is approximately 37 miles long and 12 miles wide.
The island of Lanzarote has been declared a world UNESCO heritage site due to its unique landscape. The lunar appearance of the landscape has led to the island being used for many film sets including Doctor Who and the Planet of the Apes.
Temperatures on the island vary little all year round due to the waters of the North Atlantic. The temperature varies between about 20 degrees in the winter to 30 degrees in summer. The sun strength in summer is much higher and sun screen should be worn at all times.
The island has many attractions for visitors including excellent tourist accommodation, bars, restaurants, shops, stunning beaches, museums, art galleries, caves, castles and amazing viewing points for the most creative photographs that even the amateur photographer can claim for themselves.
