Lanzarote - Sun, Sea and Fire

Lying just 100km off the coast of West Coast of Africa, Lanzarote is blessed with hot summers tempered by cool Atlantic breezes, mild winters and the possibility of year-round sea bathing. But the island is more than just sea and sunshine: two elements have combined to make Lanzarote a unique destination for visitors who venture out into the island:

The Island of Fire: Lanzarote’s 300 volcanoes are extinct but you can see their presence everywhere: mountains, craters, lava flows – the landscapes of Lanzarote are dramatic and fascinating.
Timanfaya National Park – where the earth still smoulders just a few centimetres below the surface.
The vineyards of La Geria – 2million litres of wine per year are produced by the vines which grow in black volcanic picon, protected by low stone semi-circular zocos.
The Jameos del Agua - extraordinary restaurant/nightclub in two underground caves linked by a natural underground lake formed by molten lava.

The legacy of Cesar Manrique: That the island of Lanzarote has escaped the high-rise buildings and roadside hoardings that plague other tourist destinations is largely down to one man, Cesar Manrique. Artist, designer, sculptor and architect of international standing, Manrique strove to ensure that local customs and traditions were respected in all development on the island. His work included the development of a number of extraordinary tourist attractions.

His legacy lives on, not just within his own projects and the attitude of the island to development, but also in the fact that the island continues to attract artists and makers from all over the world, drawn, as was Manrique, to the island’s strange mysterious landscapes.

Museo Atlántico:
The Museo Atlántico has been conceived as a place to promote education and preserve and protect the marine and natural environment as an integral part of the system of human values. Almost three years in the making, Museo Atlántico, off the south coast of Lanzarote, in the Bahía de Las Coloradas, officially ‘opened’ on 10 January 2017. The project consists of 12 installations and more than 300 life-size human figures, created by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, 12 to 14 metres under water. This work, called Portal, forms part of an underwater botanical garden. The mirror reflects the moving surface of the ocean and is elevated on a series of supports which contain small compartments and “living stations” designed to attract octopus, sea urchins and juvenile fish.
