There is a wide range of leisure
activities in Lanzarote,
offering something for everybody:
Have you ever
fished sharks for sport? Fishing
boats leave daily to take you out to sea where you can
entertain yourself with sport fishing.
Or do you prefer to be just comfortably
taken across the sea on a boat excursion? Most boats sail
from Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca or Puerto Calero,
passing along the southern coast of our island.
But there are also boat trips in the
North of the island, leaving from Órzola to the
islets of La Graciosa and Alegranza.
Furthermore, you can sail on a catamaran or a genuine
two-masted fore-and-aft schooner - a pirate ship that
you will leave a real pirate!
Or what about diving into Lanzarote's marine world without
getting wet? Just get on the mini 'Yellow Submarine' and
watch through glass panes the fauna and flora of the sea.
Both experienced surfers
and beginners can choose from a wide range of offers of
equipment rentals, lessons, etc. The best surfing conditions
are found on Lanzarote's northern and north-eastern coastal
For scuba divers, the
sea around Lanzarote is paradise! It is famous for its
diverse, fascinating marine life. Being of volcanic origin,
the bizarre seabed houses a great variety of plant and
animal life. The extensive flora and fauna can be perfectly
watched in the marvellously clear water.
Different centres offer diving courses of high quality,
rent out the necessary diving equipment and inform you
about the best areas for diving.
Golf fans will be rather
taken with Lanzarote. Thanks to the constantly warm climate,
golf can be played here the whole year round. The 18-hole
golf course of Costa Teguise was opened in 1978. A further
one is being created in Playa Blanca; and there is a driving
range in Puerto del Carmen.
Furthermore, there are guided hiking
tours, including the clambering through volcanic caves,
climbing of mountains, or walking over the volcanic area
along the coast of the national park 'Timanfaya'.
There are numerous bike rentals for those
who love biking. Most have special
maps for their customers, containing specific details
of the tours to make and the sights to see.
Or enjoy floating through the air with a
hang-glider. However, better follow
the information by insiders on the suitable slopes!

exotic animals can be observed here.

tourist resorts has got what it takes! In the numerous
