Oceano Aparthotel Hotel (Lanzarote, Canary Islands (Spain))

The fourth largest island of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote, located off the coast of Africa, surprises and attracts with its unusual landscape and color contrasts. In 1730-1736, Lanzarote was shaken by a six-year-long volcanic eruption that irreversibly changed both the island and the everyday life of its inhabitants. A large amount of fertile land and settlements were buried under an abundant layer of lava, part of the territory was covered with a thick layer of dust. nine0003

The powerful force of nature has thus created an amazing view and incredible contrasts that delight everyone who comes to Lanzarote. In some places on the island it may seem as if you are on the moon: craters and caves of volcanic origin rise here. There are many unusual black rocks that rinse the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. But here, a few kilometers away, there are also long white sandy beaches, some of which are marked with the Blue Flag. They are ready to receive tourists all year round. Along the coast, the cities and towns are rich in heritage from the time when, due to volcanoes, life on the Spanish island was not different. Restaurants, cafes, hotels and shops are located in these towns in the shade of palm trees, and life is seething. nine0003

Lanzarote is a small island. The length of the island from south to north is 60 km, from the western to eastern coasts a little more than 20 km. The coastline is about 213 km, most of it is covered with rocks. The climate of Lanzarote is similar to that of North Africa. Warmth and sun pamper the island all year round. In January and February, the air temperature during the day reaches an average of 22 degrees, at night it drops to 14 degrees. From June to August, the thermometer rises to an average of 29 degrees, and sometimes almost up to 40 degrees. The water temperature ranges from 17 to 24 degrees. The sun shines on the island 300 days a year, and rain is a rare guest, most often appearing only in November – March. nine0003

Lanzarote doesn’t have very lush greenery, only palm trees, olive trees and cacti. However, in the central part of the island, for example, in the La Geria area, the locals have found a way to grow the grapes from which Lanzarote’s Malvasia wine is made. In order to accumulate moisture and protect the grapes from the wind, each plant sits in a hole, the depth and diameter of which reaches several meters, enclosed by a semicircular stone fence (zoco). The oldest wine cellar on the island, El Grifo (18th century), still produces 400-600 thousand bottles of wine per year. It also has a wine museum. Lanzarote is also a supplier of fish and goat cheese, and salt has long been mined in the south of the island. nine0003

The island will appeal to those who are looking for not only a relaxing holiday by the blue ocean, but also a lot of interesting, unusual adventures. This is a great place for family holidays, couples. There are many different places to visit and monuments on the island – many of them were created by the famous architect of the island, Cesar Manrique. It is difficult to find a place on the island in the improvement of which he would not take part.

The Atlantic wind in Lanzarote creates excellent conditions for water activities, warm water allows you to enjoy swimming, diving, surfing and windsurfing, kitesurfing, etc. Fishing is also popular on the island. Many resorts are convenient for cycling, walking, hiking or playing golf, for which the weather here is favorable all year round. nine0003

Located in the center of the east coast of the island, Arrecife is the largest city of Lanzarote and its capital, as well as a financial and cultural center founded in the 19th century. It became the capital in 1852. Currently, more than half of all the inhabitants of the island live here.

Arrecife has long been an important trading point of the island. Guests of the city notice this, as there are many shopping centers, specialized shops, souvenir and handicraft shops. Various goods of local artisans are offered, and even those imported due to more favorable conditions applied to the island are sold at fairly low prices. nine0003

Arrecife also attracts tourists with its coastline, which is full of islands and reefs formed by lava flows. You can admire them while walking along the alleys. Witnesses of the history of the city and the island are two fortresses. One of them – Castillo de San Gabriel (Castillo San Gabriel) – rises on a tiny rocky island, which is connected to the coast by a drawbridge. Exactly where the main metropolitan shopping streets Leon and Castillo (Leon y Castillo) end. The bridge is decorated with two towers, on top of which there is a cannonball each. This fort was built by King Philip II to protect himself from pirates sailing from North Africa. Another city fortress, Castillo de San Jose, had the same purpose. Today it houses the Museum of Modern Art. nine0003

Another of the most visited sites is Charo de San Gines. It is a lake formed by inflowing sea water, surrounded by fishermen’s houses. Next to it stands the main city church of San Gines. A particularly amazing view nearby opens in the evening, when the lake is illuminated by the setting sun.

Fire Mountains, Timanfaya

After volcanic eruptions lasting six years, and another blow in 1824, part of the island in the northwest became an unrecognizable place filled with lava and pulsing with heat. To protect it, the Timanfaya National Park, also called the fiery mountains, was created. This is the most visited place in Lanzarote, attracting about a million people every year. You can explore Timanfaya on the buses of the park, it is forbidden to travel on foot or with your own transport. And it’s not recommended. At a depth of only 13 m, the temperature is about 600 degrees. The network of roads among the rocks, which in some places reach an impressive size of several meters, was formed by the architect César Manrique. The surface of the earth resembles the moon – it is a colorful, hard-covered desert covered with petrified lava. It is estimated that now more than 30 volcanoes rise in the park. At the end of the path, at the highest point of the island, is the El Diablo restaurant, where dishes are cooked using heat rising from the depths of the earth. Park officials demonstrate how unusually hot the ground is under their feet: poured water into a pipe dug into the ground turns into a geyser, dry grass thrown into a small hole ignites. The park also offers another impressive entertainment – a camel tour. At 1993 this park is included in the UNESCO heritage list.

Jameos del Agua

In the sixth decade of the last century, Cesar Manrique decided to create a unique tourist attraction. Near one of the lava caves (Jameo Chico) extending to the northeast, he built a staircase down and around a small natural lake in the rock equipped with an impressive bar and restaurant, sometimes even called the most beautiful nightclub in the world. The restaurant offers tourists not only to sit down for a while, but also to spend the evening on the dance floor to the sounds of Spanish music. True, it is not the cheapest on the island. The water of the lake and the surrounding reservoirs is very transparent, only blind albino crabs that live on this island, which have become the symbol of Jameos del Agua, are visible in it. Next to the cave-restaurant, the architect built a modern villa with a very cozy garden. Jameos del Agua is located near one of the most impressive and longest caves in the world, Los Verdes, which was formed 4,000 years ago by an erupting volcano. Under the ground here stretches a tunnel of 6 km. For many centuries, such tunnels for the inhabitants of Lanzarote were a refuge from the excesses of pirates, and since 1964 he is open to tourists. For those who are curious, this miracle of nature can be viewed accompanied by guides.

Cactus garden

The Cactus Garden (Jardin de Cactus) is a good example of how well architecture can fit into the landscape. Cesar Manrique, who left many traces of his talent in Lanzarote, the designed garden captivates with an interesting design: winding paths with leading steps deeper into the garden. Symbolically, it is very similar to one of the region’s many craters. On the territory of 5,000 sq. m in total grows more than 7,200 specimens of 1,100 species of cacti from such distant and remote places as Peru, Mexico, Chile, USA, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Morocco and, of course, the Canary Islands themselves.
