Lanzarote: City Breaks
A volcanic moonscape
Although there isn’t really a city as such in Lanzarote in the capital Accerife is the island’s capital town, with more than half of the population living here. The town is very busy and the centre of the commercial aspects of the island, so if you want a fun weekend getaway then a break in Lanzarote has pretty much everything on your doorstep, particularly as far as restaurants, beaches and nightlife go. Arrecife itself is certainly a good choice, as is Puerto Del Carmen, where the main strip really comes to life once the sun goes down and holiday revellers come out for all kinds of colourful and flamboyant cocktails. The flight is over 3 hours, but not too arduous for a short break on Lanzarote, an island of stunning scenery and coastline, as well as unforgettable night spots, watersports and cheap duty free.
