Driving in and around Lanzarote


There are two main motorways in Lanzarote - conveniently named the LZ-1 and LZ-2. The LZ-1 runs from Arrecife on the south east coast to La Corona in the north and the LZ-2 runs from Playa Blanca on the south coast to Arrecife. The airport is a stone’s throw from LZ-2, while the third motorway, LZ-3, cuts through the traffic of Arrecife, which homes half the island’s population.

The famous Timanfaya National Park can be reached along the LZ-2 from Arrecife in around 30 minutes, making the perfect day trip to go walking and exploring. Puerto del Carmen is a popular place to visit and can be found by heading south along the LZ-2 and LZ-40 from Arrecife. La Corona can be reached by heading north along the LZ-1.

If you’re hiring a car from us at the airport, remember to drive on the right hand side of the road and driving with an English license is allowed if you’re from the EU or EEA area.

The wearing of seat belts is compulsory in the front seats of all vehicles in Spain. If it’s a vehicle built after June 1992 then it’s also compulsory in the back seat as well. Any children under the age of 12 and less than 135 cm tall must use an appropriate child seat. Mobile phones are banned while driving.

A quick guide to Lanzarote


With friendly beaches, tasty restaurants and luxury hotels, Lanzarote is a wonderful place for a summer holiday abroad. The island provides plenty of things to see and do - such as the fascinating volcanic cones and the many trails you can take for an afternoon of exploration.

Lunch in Lanzarote

A gastronomic tour of Lanzarote is a real delight, and not just for the food. Many of the restaurants are perched on or beneath volcanos and on beachfront terraces, so the views are incredible and exhilarating.

A standard Lanzarote menu might include clams, prawns, scallops and other Canary Island specialities, and the paellas are as good as you’ll get anywhere in Spain. Much of the fish you’ll enjoy may have been caught that day, and could include sea bream, parrot fish and sea bass.

The humble potato is a massive part of the Lanzarote diet. Therefore, your meal might be accompanied by papas arrugadas or ‘wrinkled potatoes’, served with mojo which is a sauce comprised of garlic, olive oil, herbs, vinegar and a strong selection of spices.

Highlight restaurants might include La Tegala in the centre of the island which has a monthly taster menu. Previously, this has included stingray, black pork ravioli, cauliflower gazpacho and sea urchin. Alternatively, try the many teleclubs dotted around the island that sell good, local tapas.

Beach bound

The beaches on the island are plentiful with different vibes, so it’s worth properly exploring to get the best from your experience. There’s golden stretches of sand with calming waves, vast expanses of quiet cliffs and curving bays, and small bays which are extensions of traditional Spanish fishing communities.

On an island which is 37 miles long and 12 miles wide, the best advice is to drive the coast and pick different beaches as and when you find them. 

Get active

If you’re interested in watersports, the windsurfing is a sight to behold. Surfers come from all over the world to experience the waves at Famara Beach – nicknamed the “European Hawaii”.

For trekkers, Timanfaya National Park’s volcanic landscape and geysers promise a strenuously enjoyable trek. The lava-formed tunnels of Cueva de los Verdes offer a glimpse of geology at its most impressive – take a guided tour for the full experience.
