Lanzarote is some­where I would visit again and again. From the mo­ment we landed, I loved the is­land – that all­too-fa­mil­iar smell of a warm Span­ish air­port, fol­lowed by the jour­ney to our hotel across a land­scape that can only be de­scribed as star­tling.

Our favourite resort is Playa Blanca, with its beau­ti­ful views across to nearby Fuerteven­tura. In Lanzarote, the near-con­stant breeze makes walk­ing a de­light.

The Ti­man­faya Na­tional Park can be the high­light of a visit for some, per­haps stop­ping for a camel ride on the way. It of­fers a breath­tak­ingly beau­ti­ful, hard­ened lava land­scape and also food cooked us­ing the Earth’s geo­ther­mal heat.

For other vis­i­tors, the high point might be a visit to the un­der­ground lava tubes at Cueva de los Verdes and the il­lu­sion that waits within.

For me, how­ever, noth­ing beats Mi­rador del Rio and tak­ing in the clifftop view across the At­lantic to La Gra­ciosa while en­joy­ing a re­fresh­ing Span­ish cof­fee. I want to go back. STEVE VOLLER, KENT
