Our car hire in Lanzarote desk is clearly signposted in the airport's arrivals hall. Once your paperwork has been speedily completed you will be directed to your rental vehicle ready to start enjoying a relaxing holiday on this Spanish island. If you are staying in Lanzarote's capital city, Arrecife, it is just 4 miles from the airport.

Like many Spanish towns, Arrecife is full of narrow roads but your Sat Nav lets you navigate them with ease. Once away from the town your car rental in Lanzarote gives you access to its remote wilderness regions. The island is so small it only takes 40 minutes to drive from North to South and less than 30 from West to East. Spanish driving regulations state that children under 12 are not allowed in the front seats of vehicles.

Arrecife has plenty of free on-street parking but this does get taken quickly during the day. There are also a couple of multi-storey parks and some surface parking in the suburbs.

As the island is so small the best way to start your visit is with a drive around its coastal roads, following detours down to little coves and bays. Then take a day or two to enjoy the charms of Arrecife. Half of Lanzarote's population live in this town which is overlooked by an impressive fortress. This is the Castillo de San Josť and is home to the Lanzarote Museum of Contemporary Art. The Castillo de San Gabriel is another popular attraction and lies the other side of the Puente las Bolas. The port area, street names and the excellent seafood you can enjoy in Arrecife's restaurants all reveal the town's seafaring past. After lunch visit the Charco de San Gines. This small sea water lake is surrounded by quaint fishermen's houses and the hermitage church of San Gines.

Lanzarote: A Landscape Shaped by Volcanic Activity

Like all of the Canary Isles, Lanzarote is a volcano with lava spills and formations creating its landscape. Wherever you drive, red rocks, black ash and turquoise green waters create a surreal effect that is unique to the island. To enjoy this landscape at its best visit the Timanfaya National Park to the South West of the island. The park's volcanic soil is the result of the most recent eruption in the Canary Isles, which took place in 1730 and completely reshaped Lanzarote. To enjoy the lunar landscape and stunning views at the top of the volcano, park your car hire and hop on one of the park's coach tours.

No island holiay is complete without enjoying its beaches. Playa del Papagayo is considered by many to be Lanzarote's most beautiful. The waters are so crystal clear that its fish and marine plants can be clearly seen from the beach. Snorkelling off Playa del Papagayo gives you an even better view as you swim among shoals of tiny fish.

Tourism and the infrastructure that supports it makes up the backbone of Lanzarote's economy but three historic areas of industry are once again flourishing. First-class vineyards and wineries can be found on the island while cochineal production has been revitalised to serve the cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical industries. Although salt production lost its importance with the invention of refrigeration and freezing, Lanzarote salt is sold as a high-quality condiment and also valued for religious festivals. The Corpus Christi festival in June sees dyed salt being used to create huge decorations in the squares and streets of Arrecife. The Gran Casino de Lanzarote at Puerto de Carmen hosts regular events and is available for business and trade shows.

Distances to the Gran Casino de Lanzarote

  • From Lanzarote Airport: 6 miles, about 10 minutes
  • From Arrecife: 10 miles, about 20 minutes
