Lanzarote is, without a doubt, THE hippest island in the Canaries right now. Its dramatic natural landscape and laid-back lifestyle is attracting eco-travellers, hippies, surfers and yogis from all over the planet. Here's why...


1. Eat Vegetarian and Vegan at the Blooming Cactus Restaurant in Puerto del Carmen

Enjoy tapas with a conscience at this wonderful eatery, located near the harbour in Puerto del Carmen. The head chef, Tracey Thanopoulos, has brought her Greek heritage to the forefront of the menu with delicious results.

The beautiful barren, almost moon-like, landscape of Lanzarote is perfect for clearing your head and reflecting on the wonders of the world.
