Kitesurfing & Watersports
Lanzarote has the perfect conditions for those looking to ‘ride the wave’ as well as sail it. In fact, with consistent summertime trade winds and warm temperatures year-round, there are several great spots for kitesurfing, including Famara Beach, Playa Honda & Las Salinas.
Thanks to the range of professional coaches available for private and/or group sessions, Lanzarote is suitable for both experienced kitesurfers and beginners alike. There is even a specific area of the beach dedicated solely to kitesurfing. Equipment such as kitesurf boards and kitesurfing kites are easily accessible and can be purchased or rented from one of the many kitesurf shops, including the Lanzarote Kitesurf shop. Guests are also free to bring their own kitesurfing equipment. The island is a 30-minute drive from coast-to-coast, making it easy and time-efficient for watersports enthusiasts to follow the wind throughout the day.
Jameos De Agua
Jameos De Agua was formed after the eruption of Volcán de La Corona around 25 ka BP and is dubbed the “8th wonder of the world” by Hollywood star, Rita Hayworth, and the place where “nature and man embrace” according to locals. Thanks to the enhancements from the late Spanish artist, Cesar Manrique, Jameos De Agua is now a venue for art & culture, representing the pinnacle of nature and artistic expression. Jameos De Agua also features a world-renowned auditorium, with unique geological and acoustic characteristics, as well as Lanzarote’s endemic ‘blind crab’ species and the geological museum, Casa de la volcanes.
Superyacht owners can rent out all of Jameos Del Agua for private or corporate events, where they and their charter guests can enjoy the beautiful view of the lake from the tunnel, a culinary experience curated by some of the most renowned chefs in the Canary Islands and live music can also be arranged for on-board entertainment.
Wine Tasting & Volcanic Vineyard Tours
Lanzarote is known all over the world for its distinctly-flavoured wine that is produced on the island. The exceptional taste is the result of the year-round tropical climate and fertile volcanic soil, which gives the wine a unique flavour and makes it stand out from any of its competitors worldwide.
For those who are interested in an authentic Lanzarote wine tour, the region of La Geria is the perfect destination to explore. Due to historic volcanic activity creating an extreme environment in the region, innovative systems have been developed and put in place to ensure the continued production of wine. This has resulted in the formation of some exceptional flavours and wines, including Yaiza, 2020 which is dry, crisp and fresh, with citrus, tropical and floral notes, all underlain with volcanic minerality and a touch of sea salt.
Yacht owners and their chartered guests can experience a full tasting menu, in the company of expert sommeliers in the award-winning centennial vineyards. Visitors may also visit one of Lanzarote’s other beautiful wineries, including Bodegas Rubicon, Bermejo, La Florida and Bodega El Grifo, Lanzarote’s oldest winery, at 244 years old. Lanzarote produces a range of wine types, including white, rose and red, but the most highly regarded by wine lovers is the sweet, aromatic white wine that comes from the volcanic malvasia, a very high-quality grape. Wine lovers have travelled from all over the world to sample its unique flavours.
