To the south east of the island you’ll find Arrecife, its capital and main departure port. From here you can connect with other canary islands including Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Palma.

Playa Blanca on the south western side is the port of departure for crossings from Lanzarote to neighbouring Fuerteventura.
Gran Canaria is a round shaped archipelago and the largest in the Canary Islands, located Southeast of Tenerife and West of Fuerteventura.
Gran Canaria is a diverse island with a variety of natural landscapes, sunnier on the South side where most of the tourists visit and cooler in the North; dotted with beaches on the East and rockier and mountainous on the West. Combined with apparently the best climate in the world, Gran Canaria is the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself.
