Lanzarote has the rich culture and history of Spain at an island pace. After you’ve tanned on a beach with sands of all shades - the island has white, black and gold- dip into the water for some scuba diving amongst the volcanic shelves, and discover another whole world of forgotten ship wrecks and hiding sea life. Head back to shore to take a look at the colonial period castles the pirates of those now sunken ships were so keen to pillage, or disappear into the Green Caves where the islanders used to hide from pirates and invaders.

At night, get ready to get wet again on an evening of scuba diving with the manta rays and glow in the dark sea species that make the ocean off Lanzarote glow like the night sky. For dinner, you’ll need only to walk back across the Playa Grande to dine al fresco on the island’s fabulous seafood offerings.

    Clear water, sheltered bays and plenty of marine life make Lanzarote a great choice for training. Experienced divers can find greater depths relatively close to shore and there are wrecks ranging from shallow to technical diving depths. It's warm too!
