It is located in the Atlantic Ocean, 100 kilometers west of the African coast and approximately 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Spain. Lanzarote is the most volcanic of the Canary Islands. Its magnetic, almost lunar landscape boasting over 200 kilometers of coastline and countless beaches, together with the charm of its architecture exclusively low-rise houses, all painted white with either blue or green woodwork make it truly different from any other island of the archipelago. Aside from being a Mecca for all surf, kite surf, windsurf, stand-up-paddle, diving, snorkeling, fishing and sailing enthusiasts, Lanzarote is a great playground for earth sports such as cycling, mountain biking, trekking, quad, horse riding, golfing or simply enjoying a relaxing time in one of the islands many spa centers.
