Holiday in Yaiza and take in the beauty of its volcanic landscape and lively beaches
Often described as one of the prettiest districts in Spain, picturesque Yaiza lies in the south of Lanzarote, backed by a stunning volcanic landscape, while its sun-kissed streets are bursting with tropical plant life. Just a stone's throw away are some of the region's most beautiful beaches, including the lively Playa Blanca. Make the most of the famous 'Fire Mountains' with a camel safari across Timanfaya National Park, watch the sun set from the mountain terraces near the rear of Yaiza village, or simply wander the traditional whitewashed squares and take in the atmosphere of this charming resort. In the evening enjoy a traditional meal at the upscale resort of Puerto Calero, just 15 minutes away by car, with a beautiful marina and excellent seafront restaurants; or follow the lively crowd at Puerto del Carmen. For really breathtaking gastronomy, try famous local architect Cesar Manrique's mountainside Restaurante El Dablo, where the food is cooked over a volcanic crater. A trip to El Golfo, a half-submerged volcano with a striking green lagoon, will leave you in no doubt that you are in a truly otherworldly location!
Yaiza is a district and village southwest of the Canary island of Lanzarote, known for its natural beauty, lively nearby beaches and striking volcanic landscape. Discover a contrast of traditional whitewashed houses backed by a dark mountain region, where the famous Timanfaya National Park and 'Fire Mountains' lie. In 1730 and 1736 the Montanas del Fuego chain of volcanoes erupted and devastated the region, giving it an otherworldly presence and beauty that holidaymakers can appreciate today. A must see is El Lago Verde or the 'Green Lake', at the foot of El Golfo, a half submerged volcano.
Key places include:

Also in La Geria is the Cave of Los Naturalistas, stretching 1,600m long, with hanging needles of lava adorning the roof.
Timanfaya National Park is the number one reason why so many holidaymakers visit Lanzarote each year.
