Sunshine, idyllic beaches, and warm waters are just the start. Lanzarote boasts an impressive natural variety, with more than 300 volcanic peaks which create a fascinating lunar landscape tinged with pink, purple, and ochre. But there are also subterranean caves, tunnels, and lakes which entice even the calmest of visitors to seek adventure. Needless to say, Lanzarote is a paradise for surfers, with perfect waves year-round; and if that is not enough, it is rumoured that the island was part of the lost city of Atlantis.
