Lanzarote is the fourth largest and the most easterly of the Canary Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.
Born out of volcanic activity more than twenty million years ago, Lanzarote features spectacular countryside and out of this world scenery. With constant warm, spring weather, it truly is a great holiday destination to be enjoyed all year round.
To the south east of the island you’ll find Arrecife, its capital and main departure port. From here you can connect with other canary islands including Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Palma.
Ferry crossings between Lanzarote and mainland Spain are long but operated by modern ferries which provide a pleasant journey.
Playa Blanca on the south western side is the port of departure for crossings from Lanzarote to neighbouring Fuerteventura.
Spain is a beautiful and diverse country located in the south west of Europe. As a country well known for its beaches, the geographical and cultural diversity in Spain often comes across as a surprise to its visitors.
This exotic country really has it all, from lush meadows, green valleys and hills to snowy mountains and almost desert zones in the South. No wonder Spain ranks the third most visited European country.
In terms of getting to Spain by ferry, with the North, East and South sides of the country facing the Sea, there’s no shortage of options. From the UK, there are regular scheduled crossings available and though the crossings on offer are long, the ships are cruise like in standard which makes for an extremely pleasant trip. The same applies to the connection across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy.
From the North African coast, you can depart from Morocco, Melilla and Algeria. The services from Morocco in particular are very popular with many companies operating the connection across the strait of Gibraltar.
The Balearic and Canary Islands provide numerous connections to the mainland.
