In the Atlantic Ocean and located about 125 Kilometres (abt. 80 miles) off the North West Coast of Africa and 1,000 km from its native Iberian Peninsula, Lanzarote is the easternmost of the autonomous Canary Islands. It is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands, covering 845.9 square km's.
A perfect size, the island is large enough to offer the discerning visitor enough to visit and experience on their holiday yet small enough so that visitors do not feel overwhelmed. Lanzarote enjoys a rather quiet and step by step pace of life, with the opportunity to explore, discover and relax all in one.
Lanzarote is well known for its year round sunshine, welcoming multi-national visitors throughout the year. With the combination of traditional Canarian towns and amazing beaches, the island makes the most of its natural beauty and climate.
As early as 1993, UNESCO has declared the island as a Biospheric Reserve, which has reinforced the commitment of the island's authorities to approach tourism in a sustainable and culturally significant manner.
From the spectacular volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, the intricate cave formations of Jameos Del Aqua to the action packed surfing beaches of Famara, Lanzarote has a depth and beauty which makes it a totally unique place to visit.
The island has no natural water sources, while the island´s earth is fertile (showing traces of past volcanic activity from the depths) and the many local farmers successfully grow produce such as potatoes, onions, peas and pumpkin, amongst others.
The island's name in the native language was Titerro(y)gatra, which may mean "the red mountains".
