Lanzarote, Canary Islands / Spain
Lanzarote is the easternmost of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. It is located 1,000 km away from the Spanish mainland and about 140 kilometers west of the Moroccan coast.
Worth seeing in Lanzarote is the so-called Cueva de los Verdes, a cave that was formed when the volcano La Corona massively erupted about 3000 years ago. A huge lava flew then over the newly created wasteland Malpais de la Corona and melted it down. Lanzarote measures from north to south 60 km and about 25 km at its widest point. In the south of Lanzarote 11 kilometers away from the island of Fuerteventura and in the north just 1 km away the island of La Graciosa, on which there is a fishing village called Caleta de Sebo. Puerto del Carmen in the municipality of Tías is the most important and largest tourist resort of the island of Lanzarote.
