About Lanzarote, Canary Islands
At the northeastern tip of the Canaries, Lanzarote offers some of the most unusual scenery to be found, with its unique "lunar" landscape of the Timanfaya National Park. Wander in the well-preserved colonial town of Tequise, the island's former capital, or visit the unusual house of the island's famed artist, the late Cesar Manrique, who designed it as part of the volcanic landscape.

Wished we'd done an excursion to a volcano, but made the most of the day. About a mile walk into town (Arrecife) from the port--all on one sidewalk, so it wasn't complicated. A couple of historic sites on the seafront (an old drawbridge and castle) and some shopping. Some high-end stores, cafes, outlets, and souvenir shops, so there's something for everyone.
Lovely little place to visit. We got the shuttle bus which really was a waste of time. Could have walked it in 20 mins. We had a lovely sunny day to walk around the shops. Nice little market stalls near the marina. Overall a wonderful day.
