Getting Around

Lanzarote is a very small island, so getting around is fairly easy. Travel between resorts and towns on the coast can be done by bus. The bus service is efficient and reasonably priced, but holidaymakers need to keep in mind that the service is not frequent and the journey times are slow.

With well-serviced roads, dedicated cycle paths, and light traffic, Lanzarote has a large number of cyclists. Bicycles can be hired on the island. Travellers should be warned that there are large hills in town that are tricky to get up for inexperienced cyclists.

Holidaymakers who would like to go island hopping can take a ferry from Orzola Harbour. A trip to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura takes only 25 minutes. Hiring a car is one of the most comfortable and convenient ways to explore the island quickly and comfortably, with major car hire companies represented at the airport.
