Lanzarote Spain – An Island Of Sun, Sea, Sand And Adventure Sports
From the heights of the mountains to the depths of the seas now (there’s nothing like a contrast). Lanzarote is a popular diving destination as well, and as such is home to a variety of diving schools that are both PADI and BSAC certified for added peace of mind. The island has a magnificent variety of marine life and the Atlantic waters are crystal clear so visibility is excellent. Depending on your skill level you can go for a casual dive in the shallower waters, whilst those with more experience may want to try their hand at wreck diving.
On The Surface
On the surface however water sports enthusiasts will be in their element as apart from the normal waterborne activities that you can experience in most coastal resorts, such as speed boating, riding the waves on high speed banana’s and ringo’s and of course snorkelling and swimming. There are a host of other things to try as well.
One of these is surfing, and if you have ever fancied trying your hand, but can’t quite bring yourself to experience the cold British waters. Or simply can’t afford to jet off to the Hawaiian Islands, then Lanzarote will be ideal for you. With a whole host of excellent surfing beaches, serious waves and excellent weather there is simply no excuse not to take to the boards.
Alternatively Lanzarote is home to a number of kite surfing schools too. Kite surfing will definitely take your breath away as you could end up spending as much time in the air as skimming the waves at breathtaking and exhilarating speeds.
Lanzarote has so much to offer those looking for a sporting holiday or break that there is simply too much to cover in one article. So the only way to experience it all is to pay the island a visit, and find out why visitors return year after year.
