Lanzarote is situated just 120km off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 60km long and 20 km wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries. There are plenty of direct international flights from the main cities in Europe, as well as regular inter-island flights. However moving large amounts of equipment from Tenerife can take up to 2 days by ferry.
Lanzarote is volcanic in origin and due to the recent eruptions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, many parts of Lanzarote appear to be from another world, often described as 'Lunar' or 'Martian'.
The dry climate (and lack of erosion) means that the volcanic landscape appears much as it did just after the eruptions.The local authorities regulate the amount and style of development in Lanzarote, which means that there is no billboard advertising and no high rise buildings.
