Lanzarote Information
Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. Lying north of Fuerteventura, it is some 1,046 kilometres from the Spanish mainland, and only about 128 kilometres from the coast of Africa. At 60 kilometres long and 20 kilometres wide, Lanzarote is the fourth largest of the Canary Islands. The island is the least mountainous of the Canaries and although there are some 300 volcanoes on the island, the highest point is only 700 metres above sea level. This leads to a warm, dry climate and the average temperature in January is 17 degrees and in summer 24 degrees, with little rain throughout the year.

Lanzarote became part of Spain in 1402 and many of its historical sites remain. The artist and architect Cesar Manrique was born in Arrecife, Lanzarote, in 1919. He greatly influenced the building and planning regulations which apply today, and his art and designs can be seen all over the island, including the Lanzarote sunburst logo.

In the 1990s the island was named as a World Biosphere Reserve, by the United Nations, and planning and building regulations are very strictly enforced, in order to retain the islands natural beauty. Tourism now represents 80% of the island economy.
