Seen from the air, Lanzarote, the most septemtrional of the Canary Islands looks like and endless inhospitable row of volcanic cones and fields of lava. Whe you are on, the perspective changes dramatically. Charming, small white washed billages, sandy beaches, hiden coves, natural pools, imposing cliffs and even verdant valleys. Apart from exploring the fascinating dramatic volcanic landscapes Lanzarote has a handful of sights you shouldn't miss. At los Jameos del Agua, Cesar Manrique's masterpiece, geology, architecture and desing meet in a unique way. El Mirador del Rio, also Manrique's work, offers breathtaking views over La Graciosa island. The mindblowing volcanic landscape of Timanfaya National Park is Lanzarote's number one atraction and the crowds can make the experience a bit disspointing, yet, it is a must. If you like fish, go to El Golfo, and don't leave the island without paying a visit to Punta Papagayo, where the best beaches of the island lay.
