Lanzarote resort is the most easterly island of the Canary Islands; it lies approximately 79 miles off the coast of Africa, and is the fourth largest island in the Canaries, it is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 (20km) wide.

Lanzarote as with all the Canary Islands are a favorite choice by many visitors year after year because of the weather, this also makes them a perfect year round destination. Holiday apartments in Lanzarote are in good supply depending on the time of year but some do get booked up year round.

It is due to the dry climate that most visitors come here and many come to see the landscape as it is quite unique. When you look at the volcanic landscape on the island you would presume it had only recently happened.

There is still plenty to do and see on the island, if you want to explore why not take your driving license and hire a car, that way you can explore the island at your own pace.

One of the longest Volcanic Tunnels in the world is the Atlantida. This is over 7km long and includes La Cueva De los Verdes and Jameos Del Agua. Well worth a visit while you are on holiday. There are also several beautiful white beaches to choose from many offering different water sports.

The many sporting activities on offer will mostly be connected to the sea, like surfing, swimming, fishing and diving but the island is also great for windsurfing enthusiasts. The best windsurfing conditions can be found at Costa Tequise.

Puerto Carmen offers diving schools or you can find deep sea fishing excursions, parasailing, Jet Ski’s and many more to suit all ages. If a water sport is not for you then why not try one of the local gyms that also include tennis and squash courts, or simply laze about on the beautiful beach.

Whilst holidaying on this laidback island many choose to come here year after year and many come looking for property in Lanzarote, maybe to buy or for an investment to rent out.

Lanzarote resorts have something on offer to suit every age whether you are sports mad on your holiday or just simply want to relax and, if you are thinking of purchasing a property in Lanzarote make sure to get a local estate agent or solicitor to help you, laws can be different than purchasing a property in England.

For example if there were a Lanzarote property for sale you were interested in, and there was any unpaid bills related to it then you would be legally bound to pay that bill, there are so many things to take into consideration and that is why you need a local estate agent or lawyer to explain all the legalities to you.

The same rules apply when purchasing any property in any country and that is to always make sure that all the legal work is done for by a professional.

Those of you who love going to a market while you are on holiday can visit the one in the old Capital of Tequise, which is on every Sunday morning from 8.30 and 2pm. Here you will find paintings, jewelry, local wines, hand-made-table-cloths, African wood carvings and of course the usual knick-knacks that many markets have.

Those who prefer can try local “paella” or “churros” while relaxing and watching the local Canarian dancers in the main square in front of the church. Don’t forget to haggle at the market. Many of the stallholders are used to this.
