Lanzarote is the fourth largest and the most easterly of the Canary Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.
Born out of volcanic activity more than twenty million years ago, Lanzarote features spectacular countryside and out of this world scenery. With constant warm, spring weather, it truly is a great holiday destination to be enjoyed all year round.
To the south east of the island you’ll find Arrecife, its capital and main departure port. From here you can connect with other canary islands including Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Palma.
Ferry crossings between Lanzarote and mainland Spain are long but operated by modern ferries which provide a pleasant journey.
Playa Blanca on the south western side is the port of departure for crossings from Lanzarote to neighbouring Fuerteventura.
Fuerteventura is the second largest island of the Spanish Canaries, measuring around sixteen hundred square-kilometres, and also one of the most popular.
The coast of Africa lies just over a hundred kilometres away, so it comes as no surprise there are many similarities between the two, particularly in the landscape and architecture. Rolling, arid hills speckled by flat-roof houses dominate the vistas, whilst the island itself boasts three thousand hours of annual sunshine.
Fuerteventura’s biggest draws, however, are the incredible surf breaks and beaches, suitable for everyone from families to water-sports fanatics. It’s also the oldest island of the archipelago, dating back twenty million years. Consequently, there are some fine historical museums such as the famous Betancuria Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography.
As one of the most visited islands in the Canaries, Fuerteventura is well served by ferry and easily accessible from almost every other island. However, the journeys can vary in length. Sailing from Lanzarote takes just over half an hour, whereas overnight crossings are available from Tenerife, so be sure to book a more comfortable cabin for these routes.
