There is a wide range of leisure activities in Lanzarote,
offering something for everybody:
Or do you prefer to be just comfortably taken across the sea on a boat excursion? Most boats sail from Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca or Puerto Calero, passing along the southern coast of our island.
But there are also boat trips in the North of the island, leaving from Orzola to the islets of La Graciosa and Alegranza.
Furthermore, you can sail on a catamaran or a genuine two-masted fore-and-aft schooner - a pirate ship that you will leave a real pirate!
Or what about diving into Lanzarote's marine world without getting wet? Just get on the mini 'Yellow Submarine' and watch through glass panes the fauna and flora of the sea.
Both experienced surfers and beginners can choose from a wide range of offers of equipment rentals, lessons, etc. The best surfing conditions are found on Lanzarote's northern and north-eastern coastal strips.
For scuba divers, the sea around Lanzarote is paradise! It is famous for its diverse, fascinating marine life. Being of volcanic origin, the bizarre seabed houses a great variety of plant and animal life. The extensive flora and fauna can be perfectly watched in the marvellously clear water.
Different centres offer diving courses of high quality, rent out the necessary diving equipment and inform you about the best areas for diving.
Golf fans will be rather taken with Lanzarote. Thanks to the constantly warm climate, golf can be played here the whole year round. The 18-hole golf course of Costa Teguise was opened in 1978. A further one has been created in Puerto del Carmen - Lanzarote Golf.
National parks: For old and young alike, the 'Guinate Tropical Park' in Máguez is a real experience. More than 1.300 birds and other exotic animals can be observed here.
The 'Pardelas Park' in Órzola offers children and young people of all ages the contact with the local fauna and flora within a protected environment.
And night life in the tourist resorts has got what it takes! In the numerous establishments, you can choose between live music of any style: from rock 'n' roll over soul music, jazz, rumba and flamenco up to Canarian folk music. For long nights, the many discos offer the latest sounds into the early morning.
This list only gives suggestions and does not expect to be considered as a complete guide to Lanzarote's tourist attractions.
