The Timanfaya National Park is located in the south of Lanzarote, stretching over 50 square kilometres of the breathtaking moon-like landscape. The island of Lanzarote is volcanic, as are all the Canary Islands. During the last volcanic eruptions, from 1730 to 1736, Lanzarote received its present form, and spectacular lava flows to the sea were formed. The interior of the park can be accessed by trekking in Lanzarote’s narrow and winding roads leading through the lava-shaped landscape. The Diablo restaurant in the Visitor Center is designed by Cesar Manrique, one of Lanzarote's renowned architects. The restaurant's natural oven is heated by the heat erupting from the depths of the earth.
The paradise coastline at Papagayo-cape stands out of the many beaches on Lanzarote.
