Flights to Arrecife take you to the magical island of Lanzarote, one of the jewels of the Canary Islands. There are frequent direct flights from British airports so that the beaches of Lanzarote are within easy reach.
César Manrique-Lanzarote Airport, named after the artist and architect who shaped much of how visitors experience Lanzarote today, is Arrecife's airport. The airport, also known simply as Lanzarote Airport, is connected to four bus routes which take passengers to Arrecife itself and to resorts across the island. It's about four miles from the airport to central Arrecife.
Lanzarote is a popular destination, so there's no shortage of direct flights to Arrecife from British airports. Among the airlines offering these flights are Ryanair, British Airways, easyJet, Jet2.com, Thomsonfly and Thomas Cook Airlines. Iberia and Aer Lingus both offer indirect flights.
There's no better way to travel to Lanzarote than to fly direct to Arrecife. These direct flights make for an easy passenger experience. Lanzarote Airport's efficient and plentiful facilities make arrival there as smooth as possible. Transport connections to the rest of the island are plentiful. Considering Lanzarote's location of the west coast of the African continent, travelling there by plane is the only viable option from the UK in terms of journey time and costs.
Arrecife itself is a fine city to spend a day or two, but most travellers go directly to a resort in Costa Teguise, Puerto del Carmen or Playa Blanca, but there is so much more to the island. Hiring a car allows for trips to the surfer beach at Famara and to the spectacular Mirador del Rio, set into the cliffs with a view over to the nearby island of La Graciosa. The series of caves known as Jameos del Agua are, in their own way, equally as spectacular, with light shows, a swimming pool and cafes set in collapsed underground lava tunnels. The Fundación César Manrique, technically a museum dedicated to Lanzarote's renowned artist/architect, is in fact his space-age home, a symphony in white built in five volcanic bubbles. The active will enjoy a guided walk in the Timanfaya National Park where guided tours are available around the Montañas del Fuego or Mountains of Fire.
