Holidays in Lanzarote: The area and getting aroundArriving in Lanzarote
Since Lanzarote is an island, the only two ways to reach it are by boat or by plane. Planes are much more common since they are the most convenient option, although boats offer an interesting sea journey. The island is served by one airport, Lanzarote Airport, which is composed of two terminals. From mainland Spain, you can take a boat to Lanzarote from Huelva, which takes around 26 hours. There are also several weekly boats from Gran Canaria to Lanzarote, and the journey takes around 7 hours.Getting around the island
Lanzarote is considered to be one of the most walkable of the Canary Islands. However, the island stretches for 60 kilometres from north to south, and 25 kilometres from west to east, so a car is needed to travel from town to town. Taxis and public buses are also popular ways for getting around the island.
