Lanzarote travel guide

4.1
National Parks · Beaches · Nightlife
Today, the entire island is a World Biosphere Reserve, with over 500 different kinds of plants, 17 of which are endemic. Lanzarote’s beaches may be why most tourists choose to visit, but the island’s stunning landscapes also include impressive mountain ranges and a vast desert often compared to the surface of the Moon. Little is known about the history of Lanzarote, as most archaeological evidence sits buried under several layers of lava. The volcanic eruptions of the 1730s disrupted a brief period of prosperity and covered a quarter of the island’s surface with lava, destroying 11 villages and its most fertile farmland.

Fuerteventura travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Wildlife Areas · Nightlife
Fuerteventura can be loosely translated as either "Strong Winds" or "Great Adventure," and both translations usually become applicable at some point during a trip here. One of the larger Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is a popular windsurfing and kitesurfing destination, boasting a long coastline of unspoiled white beaches washed by the crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Water sports aren’t the only things to do on the island, however. It’s also a biosphere reserve rich in remote wilderness areas set aside for protected wildlife, most notably one of the two surviving populations of threatened Egyptian vulture. Of volcanic origin, the island also has an attractive countryside of sleepy villages, ancient volcanoes, and tall palm trees.
