Timanfaya volcanic area on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands

Sunday Times Travel magazine: Lanzarote Instant Escapes

If pushed to choose my favourite Canary Island (and I mean really pushed) I might just say Lanzarote. Its brooding dark lavascapes, its eye-poppingly white modernist architecture, its effortless barefoot style and – of course – its flinty, volcanic white wines, so rarely seen outside Macronesia.

Lanzarote is a truly fabulous island, with so much more to offer than its outmoded “Lanzagrotty” moniker might suggest. Discover some of my favourite corners in this month’s Sunday Times Travel magazine, which includes my Instant Escapes Lanzarote.
