The capital of Lanzarote is Arrecife, and a very popular tourist resort on Lanzarote island is Playa Blanca. However, it is Lanzarote’s deep brownish red active volcano, Mount Timanfaya, which steals the show with its beautiful volcanic landscapes. I last visited this amazing volcano in December 2022 and I highly recommend a visit.

You will find a map of Lanzarote, hotel suggestions and related reading links at the bottom of this post.
