Property for sale in Lanzarote

Canary Islands - Spain

A guide to property for sale in Lanzarote, Canary Islands


Compared with many other parts of Europe, tourism came relatively late to the Canary Islands; in the instance of gorgeous Lanzarote, the island was only able to take international flights for the first time in 1970. This led to the immediate development of what are now the island's three chief resort destinations of Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen, the fortunes of which took a huge upswing with the package holiday explosion of the late 70s. From just a few thousand visitors landing in Lanzarote in the mid-70s, the island entertained over 5,000,000 in 2004 - almost two million of whom were British. This statistic is obviously very significant if considering investment in buy-to-rent property for sale in Lanzarote.

As is the case with the other islands of the Canary's archipelago, the origin of Lanzarote is volcanic, explaining the eerie, almost lunar-type landscape that covers much of the island. Monte de la Corona last erupted over 3,000 years ago, so there appears to be little need to worry about it these days. Understandably, there are some amazing volcanic features on Lanzarote, including the Atlantida Tunnel - the longest volcanic tunnel in the world at 7 kilometres, 2 km of which is open to the public - and the volcanic field of Timanfaya National Park.

Only 70 miles off the coast of Morocco, Lanzarote is a very special island destination that is bathed in sunshine all year round, ensuring that any time you visit the weather is more than likely to be excellent. With an average of 3,000 hours of sun per year and mean temperature of 24°C, Lanzarote offers a wonderful, healthy climate best enjoyed on the many superb beaches of both white sand and black, volcanic sand. Add to this the laid-back nature of the native Canarian islanders, marvellous cuisine, entertainment and attractions, and Lanzarote is a wonderful location on which to consider investment in Spanish property.
