Dates for the diary
A national holiday, Canarian Day, is celebrated on the 30th of this month to celebrate the day in 1983 when the Canary Islands gained autonomy from Spain. Tourists will be delighted to see children dressed in traditional clothing and to listen to traditional folk music. The entire island of Lanzarote gets involved. Hotels and restaurants offer special themed foods and cultural celebrations, and the markets sometimes offer free food and wine. There are many wrestling and hunting competitions as well.
Things to do
The average sea temperature is 68°F (20°C). This is a perfect time to take advantage of Safari Diving Lanzarote. This is the only legally operated dive company on the island, but that is not what makes it the best. The fully trained, certified and multilingual staff are to credit for the high reviews received. Many tourists go on multiple dives within the same holiday.
Several beaches on the island of Lanzarote offer various beach experiences. Surfers will want to check out the Tinajo coast because it is known all over Europe for its large waves. Those looking for a more rustic, natural beach should visit the Haria beaches because it provides views of the mountains from the dark brown sand.
Where to stay
Many resorts in the area offer “all inclusive” packages. Hotel Costa Calero is one of these, and those who have opted for the upgrade say it is well worth it. The shuttle bus service and the hard-working animation team seem to be two things that put this hotel over the edge of excellent with most people.
Opinions differ on whether to get a room on a higher floor to admire the views or on a lower floor to allow easy navigation to any of the four gigantic pools. It seems that either option is a good one. Staff with fantastic service skills and who are willing to help you do anything, such as hire a car to go into town, really top off this gorgeous hotel.
