Lanzarote is an excellent place for families to go on holiday!

For dramatic scenery and pristine beaches that are not too far away from home, Lanzarote delivers. This Canary Island has been popular for decades and families, couples and single travellers alike never seem to tire of its charm and welcoming locals.

Of course like many islands, there is a mix of resorts, and plenty of choice on the holiday front. From top-notch spa hotels and well-equipped resorts to Lanzarote holiday deals, there are stacks of holidays on offer.

The more lively areas can attract young groups of party lovers, but there is a more peaceful side to this island that caters well for families with children of all ages. Playa Blanca is a laid-back resort, offering low-key nightlife and balmy nights under the stars.

Here you are perfectly situated to hop on a ferry and visit the nearby island of Fuerteventura, which would make a great day out with the kids. Playa Blanca, as its name suggests, boasts beautiful white beaches with a coveted Blue Flag, so it’s a great spot for letting the kids run off some steam in or out of the water.

Playa Blanca also offers a great range of accommodation options for families. There are all inclusive hotels where you don’t have to worry about a bill at the end of your stay. Or for a more casual holiday, a self-catering apartment gives you and the kids the flexibility to try out a new restaurant every night.

If the kids love the water then another resort which will leave them tired-out every evening is Costa Teguise. Here, windsurfers from all over travel to test out the waters. Plus there is scuba diving, deep sea fishing and sailing for you to try your hand at, with plenty of boat trips on offer too. The town centre offers a range of shops and lovely family-friendly places to eat and relax.

Operators such as Thomas Cook have plenty of choice when it comes to holidays in Lanzarote. Whatever you’re after, from swanky escapes to Lanzarote holiday deals, simply visit their website and start planning your next family holiday with ease.
