Many of our guests ask us what they can expect from a Christmas holiday in Lanzarote. The answer to this is quite simple, you can do as much or as little as you wish. The island is full of celebrations and events but its also easy to tuck yourself away to enjoy a holiday with less of the festive fuss if thats what you want to do.

Traditionally Spanish families tend to get together for dinner on Christmas Eve. Their main celebration is on the day of the 3 Kings in January. Dia del Reyes, (Magos) takes place with a procession where the 3 kings travel on Camel back throughout most villages. This lovely family event takes place on the 5th of January ahead of the Spanish Christmas day on the 6th.

Looking for somewhere special to eat out over Christmas & New Year? Here are two of our favourites..

La Cantina: In addition to their daily menus the La Cantina team are offering two taster menus over the festive period: December 24th and 31st prepared by one of the best chefs on the island for a taste sensation! (Reservation only for New years Eve and for both taster evenings)
