A good holiday resort is not difficult to find in Lanzarote, the easternmost island of the Canaries. Playa Blanca, Puerto Del Carmen and Costa Teguise are considered the three most popular resorts on the island. Each area of the island offers new and exciting things to do.

The two primary accommodation types are villas and hotels. Resorts are usually very busy hot spots for social activities. Shopping, restaurants and bars are easily accessible. Most restaurants stay open very late to accommodate those who enjoy their night life.

For relaxing, beaches are not in short supply - it is an island after all. Enjoy snorkelling, swimming and other water sports. Many sunbathers enjoy watching others enjoy the surf while they take in the sun and incredible scenery.

Nothing beats the total relaxation of a spa day. Local spas cater to seasonal visitors and provide an amazing way to relax and get away from it all. Sea water treatment centres are in high demand. Sea water is very soothing and therapeutic with a naturally calming effect.

Cafes, restaurants and bars are wonderful places to catch some shade and relaxation. A cool drink helps keep the body hydrated while you enjoy the surrounding sights and sounds.

Aside from waking up to the gorgeous horizon outside the window, many other locations are deserving of your attention. Playa Blanca's new golf course and marina are only two of the local attractions in the southern part of Lanzarote.

Timanfaya National Park is a must see. Plan to spend at least a few hours and enjoy the restaurant if possible. Please keep in mind that you will be treading the top of a volcano and dress accordingly. It will likely be cooler than the rest of the island and rocky ground requires adequate footwear.

Castillo de las Coloradas gets its name from the colourful rocks on the coastline of Playa Blanca. The ruins of an historic castle that was built to help defend the island and its inhabitants from pirate attacks in the mid 1700s are just to the east of the Playa Blanca resort.

One of the primary landmarks in the southern part of Lanzarote is the lighthouse, Faro de Pechiguera. Built in 1986, the lighthouse is of fairly recent construction and not spectacular in itself.

The walk from Playa Blanca to the lighthouse, however, is absolutely amazing. The trek takes approximately half an hour, depending on pace and offers views of neighbouring islands Los Lobos and Fuerteventura.

The sun's rays are well known to cause aesthetically pleasing tans as well as types of skin cancer. Take proper care of your skin while visiting the Canary Islands and take sunscreen. Drink a lot of fluids to prevent dehydration and take comfortable shoes.

Sandals and flip-flops are preferred summer wear for most people on vacation. Most people even prefer to simply go barefoot.

Take more caution and be a little more practical when visiting Lanzarote and all of the natural wonders ahead. Hot sand can blister, slippery rocks may cause falls, and volcanic rock may cut your feet. You don't have to wear them all the time, but you definitely need proper footwear while out sightseeing to make sure your holiday is a good one.
