The Canary Islands, located around eighty miles off the coast of West Africa close to the Tropic of Capricorn, are a Spanish owned volcanic archipelago of seven islands that was once thought to be the remnants of the mythical lost city of Atlantis. The Canaries are essentially the European Caribbean, boasting year round sunshine and daytime temperatures that range from 70 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit (20 to 26 degrees Celsius), making them a hugely popular holiday destination, especially with British, Irish and German tourists.
The Lanzarote Guidebook is packed with useful information and some great photos of the island. The new Winter 09/10 edition can now be downloaded – fast and for free – from the Lanzarote Guidebook website.
Researched and written by long term island residents, the Lanzarote Guidebook contains all of the information that holidaymakers and independent travelers need to know, as well as lots of handy inside tips. It is published quarterly so the information is always accurate and up to date.
