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
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.
