Lanzarote is the most easterly and fourth largest of the Canary Islands, which are located in the Atlantic. Lanzarote is an island with an extraordinary geology of 300 volcanic cones. The volcanoes were active in the 18th and 19th centuries. The island has had UNESCO Biosphere Reserve protected site status since 1993. For the most part, Lanzarote remains relatively unspoiled thanks to César Manrique, a Lanzarote native and artist who created different centers of art, culture, and tourism across the island. Mass tourism is limited to just three resort areas on the island, on which tourists can enjoy a quiet getaway visiting small fishing villages, great beaches (like Playa Blanca, Papagayo, and Caletón Blanco), plenty of restaurants and rich cultural centers, and explore the vibrant nightlife. The main attractions of the island are Arrecife, the spectacular volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, and the rock formations in Los Hervideros. Lanzarote is a great place for diving due to the more than 100 spots for diving around the island, as well as the magnificent Chinijo Archipelago Marine Reserve in the north. There are three diving zones: Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen, and the north part of the island. At Playa Chica in Puerto del Carmen divers can do their first dive requiring a high level of technical competence. Diving here in crystal clear Atlantic waters is a great opportunity to explore an abundant marine life and volcanic caves, tunnels, sheer walls and wrecks.
