Lanzarote is full of fascinating sights but nothing comes close to the Museo Atlantico. Lying beneath Marina Rubicon is Europe’s first underwater sculpture museum. The brainchild of artist Jason deCaires Taylor it features ten different groups of sculptures including a poignant exhibit which depicts a boat of refugees.
The installation is designed to generate an artificial reef as the ocean reclaims the sculptures. You can view this one-of-a-kind museum on special diving and snorkelling excursions.
Bask on its beaches
When you want that warm feeling of the sand between your toes, Lanzarote has you covered. For an island formed by volcanic eruptions, it has some pretty special beaches. There is a stretch of shoreline to suit every mood from the quiet black sands of Playa del Charco de los Clicos to the remoteness of Playa de las Conchas.
Of course, you will find the popular sands of Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen which are lined vibrant promenades.
Go to Teguise market
Costa Teguise is a haven for holidaymakers thanks to its beaches, huge choice of hotels and bars and restaurants. However, one of the weekly highlights is the market. Held every Sunday, people come from all over the island to peruse the handcrafted gifts and delicious deli food made from local produce.
