Whilst it is always tempting to relax by the pool with a cool drink, Lanzarote has many attractions that are definitely worth a visit, here are a few of the essentials
The Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) were created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes, covering more than 50 km², rose up and devastated this part of the island. The last eruptions were in 1824, however due to the low rainfall this area appears much the same as it did just after the eruptions. In 1968 the area was declared a national park, Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. While it is not possible to just wander freely around the Volcanoes, a Coach Trip around the National Park is included in the entry fee. The Tour features an Audio Commentary that includes excerpts from the diary of a local Priest who was an eyewitness to the devastating Eruptions.

Cueva de los Verdes (Green's Cave)

Is a very attractive, typically Spanish and usually quiet old town, worth browsing around and enjoying drinks, snacks, tapas, or a meal at one of several welcoming bars/restaurants. Market day is Sunday when the town becomes alive with entertainment, live music and great atmosphere.
Although this is the capital it is well worth a visit, there are a good selection of shops and cafes and the sea front is very attractive. Visit the seventeenth floor of the tall five star Gran hotel and savour very reasonably priced and delicious coffee and cakes whilst enjoying panoramic views.
Located between Playa Blanca and Arrecife airport Puerto Calero is a relatively new up market town that has a super marina. There are numerous cafes, restaurants and shops and if you would like to take a look beneath the ocean you can book a place on the resident submarine.
This old winery on the road to Tequise is well worth a visit. We have driven past Bodegas Rubicon many times never stopping to take a look, this was a mistake! The architecture and interior of this 18th century building is superb and the ancient winepress and cellars give a great insight into historic wine making. Equally impressive is the new bar and restaurant with great panoramic views serving Tapas and wines. We have yet to sample the food here but will do for sure during our next visit.
