Lanzarote is a beautiful island and has many things to do. Here are nine things to do I would recommend on your holiday to Lanzarote:
1. Visit El Golfo
El Golfo is a seaside village on the South-west coast of Lanzarote, located next to an amazing volcano with a green lagoon.
2. Explore Timanfaya National Park
Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote is a Spanish national park in the southwestern part of the island of Lanzarote. The park is made up of volcanos and volcanic soil and is an amazing place to view. You can also go on a bus tour around the national park which is a great way to see the park. There is also a restaurant onsite called El Diablo.
3. Visit Cueva de los Verdes
Cueva de los Verdes in Lanzarote is a volcanic tube that can be visited by tourists with a guided tour that takes approximately 1 hour. It is a must see in Lanzarote and I highly recommend.

Jameos del Agua is a unique volcanic tunnel & cave that also has a concert hall, restaurant & salt lake.

Boega Stratvs is a winery and restaurant located in La Geria, the vine growing area of the island.

Where To Stay in Lanzarote
I spent 3 nights at the Barcelo Lanzarote Royal Level with Jet2Holidays. It is a 4* luxury hotel located in Costa Teguise, one of the most popular areas on the island and is a great area to base your stay. The hotel is the perfect place for relaxation while being in a great location to a lot of the tourist spots.
I stayed in the Royal Level area of the hotel which allows Royal Level guests access to more areas in the hotel which I think is well worth it! If you are looking for luxury holidays then this is hotel is for you.
I hope this helps you to plan what to do, where to eat and where to stay in Lanzarote which you can find on Jet2Holidays.
