Vacations on the volcano island Lanzarote

Every year, millions of sun-seeking seaside vacationers have their holiday in the volcanic island Lanzarote. In Lanzarote there are countless beaches from which a part are really dream beaches that make a seaside holiday to be a pleasure. But Lanzarote is not purely a bathing island; there are also many sightseeings starting with the volcanos and fields of lava, view points with unforgettable panorama views and picturesque little villages and even museums.

In Lanzarote, the mass tourism started much later than in the other Canarian Islands as Gran Canaria or Tenerife. Thereby, the island was spared from arquitectural abberations as 10-floor tourist bunkers and to a large extent, Lanzarote could keep its original character. Today, there are also still many buildings built around the big tourist centres, but it is done in a rather nice and urbane way.

The people of Lanzarote, the "Lanzaroteños" highly aim to keep their island to be beautiful and according to its original chatracter. A big part is under environment protection, in many little villages, the aim of the inhabitants to make their village/island to be a real piece of jewelry, is remarkable. This is to be noticed by the planted waysides, by the palmn avenues or by the wonderfully adorned houses.
