Marco Polo Lanzarote: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips

Experience all of Lanzarote’s attractions with this up-to-date, authoritative guide, complete with ‘Best Of’ recommendations. You’ll discover gorgeous hotels, restaurants, the best night life, plus shopping tips, suggestions for those on a tight budget, tips for travel with kids and ideas for sporting activities on offer.

On Lanzarote, it isn’t just the sea and sand that promises a really special holiday, but also the incomparable landscape: lava fields, ash mountains, and eruption craters which shimmer from black to rust red in the sun, contrast with snow-white villages and sparse but bright green vegetation. 

MARCO POLO Lanzarote introduces you to a unique travel destination. The fourth largest of the Canary Islands was created from fiery eruptions, and, more than any of its neighbours, has been shaped by vulcanism. This practical, pocket-sized guide explains why the island has escaped the kind of ugly developments that can be found in the main centres of Gran Canaria or Tenerife.

It suggests places to go for breathtaking views, peaceful fishing villages, towns full of colonial architecture and bustling holiday resorts in which you can enjoy a whole range of activities from water sports to hiking, mountain-biking and wellness. The Insider Tips reveal where you can eat the best fish at sunset and why you should definitely visit the subterranean Cueva de los Verdes.

The Best Of pages, on the other hand, highlight some unique aspects of Lanzarote, recommend things to do for free, and contain tips for rainy days and for where you can relax and unwind. You’ll find out What’s Hot on the island, whether eco camping, smart cafés or local fashion creations. The Trips & Tours lead you to the volcanic heart of the island and across to neighbouring Fuerteventura. Finally, the Dos & Don’ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the island. 

MARCO POLO Lanzarote provides comprehensive coverage of the island. To help you get around there’s a detailed road atlas inside, really useful maps of Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
