Lanzarote Offers Great Value Winter Sun
Escape to Lanzarote in the Canaries This Christmas and enjoy temperatures in the 20´s Celsius.
Now that winter is starting to really bite in the UK many people’s thoughts will be turning to escaping to warmer climes. With Christmas and the New Year one of the most popular times of the year for taking a break abroad. But in the current economic climate where can cash strapped consumers find real value for money?
Lanzarote is a four hour flight from the UK, making it the closest winter sun destination to home. And budget flights to the eastern most Canary Island are available with a wide range of operators, such as easyJet, Monarch and Ryanair. With plenty of seven days returns available departing next week on December 22nd for under £200 .
And what about places to stay? It´s still possible to book Lanzarote villas and hotels from as little as £500 per week during Christmas week. With leading rental websites such as www.holidayvillasinlanzarote.co.uk still showing some availability.
As well as great year round weather – tourists can expect temperatures to hit the early 20’s Celsius over the Christmas period – Lanzarote is also renowned for its wonderful beaches and amazing volcanic scenery. There are close to 100 superb stretches of sand here, some of which - such as Papagayo, close to the resort of Playa Blanca and Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen – are ranked amongst the best in Spain by leading authorities such as Trip Advisor.
A visit to the Timanfaya National Park is also a must for anyone visiting the island, as the volcanic region which was created by a six year long eruption in the 1730’s is key to gaining an understanding of Lanzarote’s people and their culture due to its enormous impact on the development of island life.
For example, many Lanzaroteños were forced to flee abroad – with many returning generations later from destinations such as Cuba and Mexico armed with strong Latin American influences that have since coloured the islands cuisine. Whilst the colours and textures of the volcanic region also feature prominently in the canvasses of the islands most famous son, the famous painter and sculptor César Manrique, who also developed all of Lanzarote´s leading tourist attractions.
Amongst the most amazing of these is the breathtaking Jameos del Agua, located in the north of the island. This giant collapsed lava tunnel was being used by locals as a rubbish dump until Manrique transformed it into an amazing underground nightclub and auditorium in the late 1960’s. A spectacular feat of design and engineering that helped to first put Lanzarote on the map as a tourist destination.
