TRAVEL: 6 Reasons Why You Should Visit Lanzarote

Lanzarote is up there as one of my favourite places to visit on holiday.  I first visited 13 years ago and have been going back pretty much every year since (well except the 5 year hiatus until this year), I know the area so well that it almost feels like home to me now.  I feel Lanzarote is still a hidden gem for some people and not everyone would think to visit there so todays post is 6 reasons why you should visit Lanzarote if you haven't already.

1. The weather: Obviously the weather plays a huge part when you're deciding to go on holiday as we all love warm weather and relaxing out in the sunshine with a cocktail in hand.  Lanzarote has the perfect weather as it's hot but not too hot and humid where you feel sticky and gross and there is also a slight breeze which cools you down every so often (unfortunately it's not hat wearing weather which really quite upsets me).  I tend to visit Lanzarote in the Easter and the weather is lovely (I came back with a cracking tan) although in the evening it does cool down slightly so you will need a light jacket.

2. It's not overly touristy: Lanzarote is still pretty unpopulated by tourists (depending where you go) so you can really enjoy the island without too many people spoiling it for you.

3. It's super pretty: The island is so unbelievably gorgeous, everywhere you look there is beauty.  The volcanoes are so awesome to see, there are beautiful beaches, rugged coastlines and bright flowers everywhere you look.  It's just such a lovely bright country, which also makes it very instagrammable.

4. It's a tiny island so you can really explore it: If you're anything like me then you like to make the most of your holiday and explore the country that you're visiting.  The first time I visited Lanzarote (13 years ago FYI) I explored the entire island on a couple of day trips as it's so small so was quick and easy to get around.  Top sights include: Timanfaya National Park, Jameos del Agua, Cesar Manrique Foundation. 

5. The sunsets: You see pictures on instagram of the most amazing sunsets from various countries around the globe and Lanzarote is no different.  Just look at those colours, amazing!

6. It's really chilled out: As I mentioned in a previous point, Lanzarote isn't overly populated by tourists or even residents for that matter so the island is incredible chilled out.  It's such a relaxing place to visit.  Life can be pretty full on at times so on holiday you really want to make the most of it and chill out and Lanzarote is just the perfect place to do that.

Have you ever visited Lanzarote? Do you want to?
