Such an amazing drive along the north side of this beautiful and unique island. Just after visit of the nearest caves, follow the north road.Lanzarote may not have forest and green lands, but definitely something incredible experience to visit this island. All the Vulcanos and other interesting parks, like the famous cactus park and aqua parks. Also recommended to take the ferry and visit the local islands. Good weather all year round.
Fantastic views... Good shop.... Good food... Lovely coffee.... The view from the coffee shop was amazing. Well worth the visit... Lots of parking.
