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.
The island of Tenerife is the largest and best known of the Canaries group with a coastline of some three hundred and fifty kilometres and attracts over ten million visitors to its shores each year.
The number one reason that people head to Tenerife is because of the year round guarantee of sunshine, making the island of Tenerife a top winter destination.
Weather and amazing beaches aside, Tenerife has so much more to offer, with ravines, as well as spectacular cliffs, forests, and even fossilised remains of prehistoric animals. Tenerife will no doubt offer a unique experience for every visitor.
Perhaps due to its size and undoubted popularity, getting to Tenerife by ferry is relatively simple with numerous choices on offer. With two principle ferry ports, whether you are coming from the mainland (on a long crossing) or island hoping from another canary island, most of the region’s most popular ferry companies call at Tenerife.
