Things to do here
The beauty of Lanzarote is that it really has something for everyone. Tired of sitting by the pool? Why not visit La Graciosa, a small island off the north tip of Lanzarote with no roads, just great sandy beaches and some restaurants by the sea. The small island is also ideal for cycling and hiking. Alternatively, you could visit the little town of Teguise, which was the original capital of Lanzarote, with its preserved colonial mansions and cobbled streets offering a glimpse of a more sedate past.
