There is always a time of year when the winter just seems a bit gloomy, and for once you don’t feel like going up into the snow – rather, the idea of sunshine, cool ocean breeze, tanned golden skin, ice cold mojitos and the simple idea of being able to walk outside without bundling up seems so much better. I have customized an 8 day trip through thomascook.co.uk where you and your partner can enjoy your very own highly rated apartment (Tripadvisor) at Los Gracioseros Apartments, overlooking a pool and only a few minutes walk to the beach, bars and shops on Lanzarote.
If you want to do some exercise and learn a little bit about Lanzarote, Bueno Bike Lanzarote will take you around the island and tell you all about the local hot spots, the history, and what places you must absolutely see… This bike tour has been rated as the 3rd best thing to do while in Lanzarote.
Timanfaya National Park is also a wonderful day trip to a national park, where you can witness geologic formations and vast, picturesque scenery of volcanic wasteland. This place has received a Certificate of Excellence on tripadvisor, and is a must see for any tourist with the desire to leave the beach for a day and witness mother nature’s power.
However, look no further than the beach for a a wide array of activities. For example, in Charco del Palo, and in your location Puerto Del Carmen, the clear blue water enables wonderful visibility for scuba diving, with dedicated scuba diving instructors and guides that will show you the wonders of sea life.
You can also take a kayak tour, or just kayak for fun right out on the beach where they are easy and cheap to rent. Other water sports that are not hard to find on the island are kite surfing, sailing, windsurfing, and last but not least, jet-skiing, one of my favorites here.
With this deal, you will return back home feeling like you just had a summer at the beach!
