The old shelter for the towns folk: Cueva de los Verdes
Together with a guide, you can tour through the worldwide renowned cave system of up to 6 km long and 3000 years old. During this tour you will go to various underground rooms where the former inhabitants of Lanzarote took shelter from pirates. So this cave also owes its name to a family Verde who managed to keep hidden here for a long time. Located in the northern part of Lanzarote, to the south-east of the volcano Monte de la Corona, a rental car in Lanzarote can help you easily get there.
The lava tunnels of Jameos del Agua

Car rental in Lanzarote is recommended if you want to explore the island to the fullest. The green lagoon is surrounded by half a crater 60 meters deep that originated in the ice age. The unusual color is due to the large amount of algae in the lake. On the black lava beach you can find Olivin-stones along the waterline, which are usually of olive green color.
Public transport is not always reliable, if you want to explore the island to the fullest then you should rent a car in Lanzarote. Timanfaya National Park which is entirely made up of volcanic soil is a tourist highlight. The biggest eruptions occurred between 1730 and 1736. This 5000 acre park is one of the core areas of a Biosphere reserve designated by UNESCO.
Arrecife is the capital of Lanzarote, where about half the population lives. It is the only town on the island and is characterized by a pleasant promenade with nice shops and colorful terraces. Arrecife is well worth visiting by car rental.
