Lanzarote, Spain

Lanzarote is a stunning Canary Island paradise with golden and white sand beaches and the flawless weather you’d imagine for an "Island of Eternal Spring.” But this UNESCO biosphere reserve has a dramatic side—namely, its beautiful and otherworldly volcanic landscape. Here, you can ride a camel across a lava field (Timanfaya National Park), attend a concert in a 3,000-year-old lava tube (Cueva de los Verdes), and marvel at black sand beaches and lava cliffs jutting into the sea. For a little culture, the famed artist and sculptor Cesar Manrique has also left his mark on the island at sights like Jardin de Cactus and James Del Agua.

6 places with unbelievable views on Lanzarote

I felt like the luckiest digital nomad in the world. For six months, my office was in a remote village in Lanzarote, the easternmost of the Canary Islands. With no car, I crossed the island on foot or by guagua (public bus). I was totally taken away by the volcanic landscape, pristine water, and organic architecture. Here are six of the places I can’t forget.
Mateo Sancho Cardiel, New York City, NY
  • Timanfaya National Park
    This national park is a geology masterclass. It’s where a series of volcanic eruptions from 1730 to 1735 shaped the island and created its otherworldly landscape. When you get to the rocky basins called the Cuatro Calderas Quemadas (Four Burned Calderas), it looks like the planet decided to have a hot bath party. Riding through on a bus feels pretty touristy, but the vivid colours, unique textures, and breathtaking views make it worth it.
  • Mirador del Río
    Cesar Manrique is a local legend. He went from artist to activist, shaping jaw-dropping architecture that blends seamlessly into the rocky landscape. Inside, the rooms have massive windows and polished white walls that resemble igloos. At this scenic overlook, you're in for a wild ride. Think endless horizons, cliffside thrills, and the immersive artistry of Manrique. You’ll definitely want to Instagram this!
  • Ermita de las Nieves
    Big shoutout to Lanzarote's patron saint, la Virgen de las Nieves, for choosing this spot. Her 16th-century church sits at 2,000 feet above sea level. Getting there can be challenging, but the sunset views are pure enchantment. Perched high above Famara, the surfer paradise, it's a hidden gem. Pilgrimage fans, mark your calendars for a colourful parade with all the locals (including some donkeys) in the first week of August.
  • El Chupadero
    As you sip the renowned Malvasía Volcánica white wine on this bar’s outdoor patio, the landscape seems to be spinning. That’s because you're gazing at La Geria vineyards, where curved wind protectors sculpt the vines into geometric patterns. Set against the black volcanic soil, it’s truly a masterpiece. By the way, chupar means "to drink" in Spanish. The temptation here is not just "chupar" another round, but to indulge in some papas arrugás (wrinkled potatoes).
  • El Lago Verde / Charco de los Clicos
    As a die-hard fan of Pedro Almodovar, seeing where he filmed film scenes was a must for me. But even if you're not familiar with the director’s work, you can still soak in the epic colour blast at this viewpoint. Picture a green lagoon, a black-sand beach, a blue ocean backdrop, and a mountain split right down the middle. Some of the island's top-notch seafood restaurants are just a stone's throw away.
  • Cueva de los Verdes
    The magic in Lanzarote is sometimes hidden beneath the surface. La Cueva de los Verdes—the Green Cave—took me on a Jules Verne-worthy adventure through lava tubes formed during a volcanic eruption. I felt like an accidental speleologist, squeezing through passages, ducking under rocks, and falling for some mind-bending optical illusions along the way. Nothing is what it seems, but that's the beauty of it!
