In Lanzarote there is plenty to do, located within the Canary Islands this small island is home of many volcanoes and a lot of the scenery is uninterrupted volcanic rock, palm trees and cactuses making it a beautiful location; for 2 weeks I got to spend my first ever trip abroad in Costa Teguise.
Although we were located in Costa Teguise my fiancé and I managed to travel around most of the island due to the tour trips which were on offer, we managed to visit Guinate Tropical Park, Jameos del Agua, Cueva de los Verdes (Lava tunnels and caves), Rancho Texas Zoo, Timanfaya National Park and artist Cesar Manrique’s house which he formed out of lava bubbles.
When we weren’t exploring the island we took advantage of a wonderful cocktail bar called Surfwings located right next to the beach, the staff were friendly and had a vast array of cocktails for us to try and at night they added an extra sparkle to the drinks, they also offered up large ice cream creations covered in whipped cream, fruit or Oreos which was perfect on those hot sunny days; Lanzarote is a very windy island though so it wasn’t as hot as I’d expected and luckily enough there were no mosquitos!
Lanzarote is a great place to visit with plenty to do, it doesn’t have a large nightlife scene like some other places such as Magaluf etc… but it is a really interesting place to visit with plenty of souvenirs to remind you of your journey and plenty of new experiences. My first time abroad went smoothly and I cant wait to go abroad again! I just know this time to take plenty of plane entertainment, it may have only been 4 hours from Birmingham to Arrecife airport but it felt much longer, especially early in the morning!
