Great Things to Do Near Villa Clara

Timanfaya National Park

The number one attraction on the island, this national park still has active volcanoes and you will see demonstrations which prove just how hot the earth is! A bus tour shows you the amazing but eerie result of the last volcanic eruption from 1730-36, with craters, colourful molten lava flows and ash - a landscape little changed over the intervening years.For a close up view book a free guided walk around one of the two routes in the park (bookable 48 hours in advance)

Teguise market

A not to be missed shopping sensation, this market attracts visitors from all over the island. You can buy practically anything here as the sleepy little town of Teguise is transformed by hundreds of stalls every Sunday. There's folk music and street entertainment too.

Take a tour of the local bodegas

Villa Clara is close to Lanzarote's wine growing area. The vines are planted individually in little hollows in the volcanic soil - very labour intensive but the end product is worth it - a crisp Malvasia wine which has been exported to Europe for centuries. Wines can be tasted in the various Bodegas and also bought there and one or two have some fantastic restaurants attached.

Festivities

There are festivities every weekend - the party begins in the capital of Arrecife at the end of February and lasts for almost two weeks until early March. It then moves to Puerto del Carmen the following week, followed by Playa Blanca and ends in Costa Teguise when the parade is held in the last Saturday in March. Carnival is a very colourful affair, with street parades, fancy dress, floats and musicians spectacular enough to rival those of Rio.

Snorkelling off the coast of Lanzarote

is made easy if you take the guided tours for beginners at Puerto Del Carmen with qualified instructors. Full equipment is supplied for all ages and you can even take home photos of your underworld adventure.

For something quite different

Take a camel safari through Timanfaya National Park visiting the volcano craters. Young and old alike will love these 'ships of the desert'.

Cactus galore

In the Cactus Gardens in Guatiza there are hundreds and hundreds of different weird and wonderful varieties of cactus of all shapes and sizes - one of the best collections in the world. Laid out in beautiful gardens designed by Cesar Manrique, this is a plant lover's paradise.

The town of Yaiza is well worth a visit

a beautiful and tranquil village that has won prizes for 'the loveliest village in Spain'. With its pristinely-kept square, 17th century church of Nuestro Señora de los Remedios, wonderful well-kept gardens, intriguing souvenir shops and tapas bars, it's a real gem.

The perfect day....

Take a picnic and spend a day snorkelling and lazing on one of the beautiful coves at Papagayo, then round off the evening with a delicious fish dinner by the sea in the little town of El Golfo. The fish will have been freshly caught that day.

Take the youngsters to the Indian Village

at the Rancho Texas park where they can try mining for gold! Have a go at canoeing, pony riding or just take a leisurely walk through the gardens with its feature waterfalls

Find time to visit the island of La Graciosa

Ferries leave regularly from Orzola to this incredibly beautiful and laid-back island where there are no tarmacced roads. You can hire a bike to explore the deserted beaches or just relax having a meal at the Meson de La Tierra. It's right on the harbour and meals are served on the shaded terrace overlooking the port and views towards Lanzarote. It has a great atmosphere and excellent food at a reasonable price.

A touch of elegance and sophistication

is yours to experience at the luxurious marina in Puerto Calero. A purpose built harbour with a hard to resist shopping area and landscaped walks, it's the perfect place to chill and watch those lovely yachts float past.

Cuevas de los Verdes

The Cuevas de Los Verdes are part of a 7 km long lava tube formed about 3,000 years ago when the La Corona volcano erupted.A 2km pathway leads through the tunnel which is carefully lit to produce a beautifully atmospheric tour. The caves used to be an excellent place for locals to hide from pirates.Combine this with a visit to Jameos del Agua - they are both part of the same volcanic tube...

Jameos del Agua

An underground lagoon inside a volcanic tunnel is populated by innumerable albino crabs, tiny and white and unique to the lake. The attraction is full of surprises, as you emerge from the underground cave into another open air one lined with tropical plants and dominated by an opulent white swimming pool. The steep sides create great accoustics and frequent concerts are held here. An attraction not to missed!

Head for the beach

Nearby Puerto del Carmen has some of the most popular beaches on the island - 6 kms in total all with Blue Flag status. The sea here is calm, good for snorkelling and swimming and lots of other water activities. But for true beach connoisseurs and sun seekers, head to Papagayo (about a 30 mins drive) where there are 7 sheltered bays of fine golden sand with superb views to Fuerteventura.

After touring the national park

Have a leisurely lunch in their restaurant El Diablo, where food is cooked using geothermal heat in an outdoor barbecue.

Casa Jose Saramago

Join a guided tour around the house of Portuguese Nobel prize-winner for Literature Jose Saramago who lived in Tias in Lanzarote for the last 18 years of his life (in exile). Even if you have not read his books the house is a fascinating museum offering an insight into the great writer's personal life

Eat wrinkly potatoes

You will see 'Papas Arrugadas' on every menu! Tasty locally grown potatoes which were traditionally cooked in seawater, now just sea salt, and then baked to produce a salty wrinkly skin. They are served with two types of sauce called 'mojo' a tasty green sauce and a spicy red one. Delicious!

Try some of the tapas in the several tapas bars in Tias.

Some say La Ermita has the best tapas on the island! Try crab stuffed peppers, pastries filled with goat's cheese or ham or pork in apricot sauce. There are vegetarian options too. Happy eating!

Touch a sea cucumber....

in the aquarium at Costa Teguise. There are special 'touching pools' for children with starfish and sea urchins too. See the fish up close through special magnified viewing bubbles and watch the sharks swim above your head!
