From Gran Canaria to Lanzarote / Island Hopping

Why visit Lanzarote

Being the easternmost island of the Canary Archipelago, Lanzarote does have a unique tourist print and personality. Thus, it’s no overstatement to say Lanzarote is an actual temple of nature and art united in a formula which has yielded, in time, attractions like El Mirador del Rio, Jardin de Cactus and Jameos del Agua. The Timanfaya National Park is one objective no comprehensive tourist should overlook, but for cannier pastimes they should definitely head for the splendid El Papagayo beach, a jewel and a pride of all stretches of sand in Lanzarote. Another nature highlight in Lanzarote refers to the fact the island is home to the largest volcanic cave chain in the world.

How to get from Gran Canaria to Lanzarote

By sea

Boat trips are said to be, as a rule, much more rewarding than flights when it comes to island hopping. Naviera Armas and Trasmediterranea are the two sea line companies putting forward vessels which cover the distance between Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Arrecife, the latter being where the respective boats haul ashore in Lanzarote.

By air

Unsurprisingly, Binter and Islas Airways are the two alternatives tourists can resort to in view of making their way from Gando to Arrecife. These are common choices of tourists intending to explore the archipelago, since they are the chief two inter-island flights operators.

Attractions in Gran Canaria


Located in Puerto Rico, in the municipality of Mogan, Atlantida is a water park capitalizing upon the mythological motifs of the sunken Atlantis.


Maspalomas Sand Dunes Nature Reserve

The fame of the Maspalomas Sand Dunes Nature Reserve is enhanced due to the fact the site was absorbed in the gay tourism circuit of Gran Canaria.


Puerto Rico

Located only a short distance from Maspalomas, Puerto Rico is a notable destination in south Gran Canaria. It is also an important leisure port.
