Sailing from luscious Lanzarote

The island of Lanzarote, also known as one of the Islands of Eternal Spring, is a popular holiday destination for anyone wanting to chase the sun. With its stunning volcanic landscape, crystal blue waters and balmy climate, it’s not hard to see why! As the easternmost island of the Canary Islands archipelago, Lanzarote sits directly in the path of the north-east trade winds, a perfect spot for launching any sailing adventure. 

Sailing in the Canary Islands

With temperatures averaging a comfortable 16°C during the winter months and reaching the high 20°C's in the summer, Lanzarote is the go-to place for year-round sailing opportunities. The islands are home to numerous bustling marinas and smaller fishing harbours, so a bar or restaurant, offering delicious local food and wine is never far out of reach! 

Typical Itinerary & Highlights

Days 1 - 2, Arriving in Arrecife - Lanzarote

After flying into Lanzarote it is a very short drive to the Marina Lanzarote. There you will check in with your charter crew and be shown to your yacht. When you have made yourself at home, you then have the evening to explore the island's capital Arrecife and take advantage of the vast shopping and eating opportunities on offer!

The first day is a relaxed sail to the northern island of La Graciosa just off the coast of Lanzarote, where you can spend the afternoon relaxing on the secluded beach of Playa Francesa. 

  • Arrecife Arrefice
  • La Graciosa Island Lanzarote La Graciosa
  • Marina Rubicon Lanzarote Island

Days 3 - 4, Cruising to marvellous Marina Rubicón

After spending the night in Playa Francesa, cruise round to La Graciosa’s small capital Caleta del Sabo. Contrasting with the hustle and bustle of Arrecife, Caleta del Sabo screams relaxation. As a community based around fishing, the locals will be more than happy to provide you with some of the freshest fish on offer.

Mooring here shouldn’t be too difficult, and the harbour's position in the natural marine reserve of the Chinijo archipelago allows for a rich marine ecosystem to thrive.

After soaking up the laid back lifestyle of La Graciosa, head back down Lanzarote’s southern coast to the Marina Rubicón. Based along Playa Blanca, this up and coming marina flaunts the more glamorous side of Lanzarote. Yet among the new restaurants and bars, the traditional market still runs on a weekly basis where you can purchase local products.

Days 5 - 6, Frolicking in Los Lobos

It’s now time to island hop over to the renowned island of Fuerteventura where an abundance of beautiful beaches are available for you to choose from at the port of Corralejo. Here you can sunbathe to your heart's content on the white sands, or take advantage of the water-sports opportunities.

On your sail back to Lanzarote and Porto Calero, why not cool off on a swim stop on the island of Los Lobos; an island of stunning natural beauty, and a fantastic place to don the snorkelling gear and see what marine life you can find. 

  • Puerto del Rosario Fuerteventura Beach Fuerteventura Island
  • Los Lobos in the Canary Islands Los Lobos
  • Porto Calero Puerto Calero

Days 7 - 8, Get classy in Calero

The Puerto Calero is the hub of sailing and yachting, moor up alongside other luxurious boats and wander along the pontoon to one of the many waterside cafes, for an ice-cold drink. The elegance of Calero will have you living the high-life, a perfect way to spend the end of your week!

As your holiday draws to an end, you will find yourself sailing back into Marina Lanzarote, where your adventure began. Now is the time to do everything you may have missed out on before in Arrecife, like that restaurant you didn’t get to try before your departure home.

  • Marina Rubicon Lanzarote Island

Below is an indication of the yachts that will sail on this flotilla. Please call us on 020 8459 8787 to check live availability.

Our Shore to Sail holidays are a combination of a one or two week flotilla sailing holiday with another relaxing week or two ashore.

These holidays will appeal to those who enjoy sailing but have family or friends who are not quite so enthusiastic about sailing - a compromise can now be made!

Most people opt for a week of sailing followed by a week of winding down on shore. However it is entirely up to you to do what you want to do (and when!)

Choose from studios or apartments beside the sea at the Iris Hotel, Stena, near Nidri. Or, really pamper yourself at the Salvator Villas and Spa Hotel in Parga, which also has a selection of two-bedroom villas with private pools.

We also have a brand new, exclusive villa available which is nestled in the olive groves on the hill above Sivota Bay on Lefkas Island. 

  • Pool at the Salvator Hotel

    Salvator Spa Hotel & Villas

    We have no doubt at all that our flotilla sailing gang will really score a few points with the non sailors of the family by bringing them here! The combination of one of our yachts and a room here is about as good as it gets!

    For 20 years, our flotillas have been enjoying the wonderful food from the 'Castello Restaurant' in Parga. Spiros and his six sons have now expanded their programme in Parga with a fabulous boutique complex of rooms, apartments and villas called the Salva…

  • Relaxing by the pool at the Iris

    Iris Hotel & Apartments

    The Iris Hotel is one of our accommodation options in the South Ionian, ideally suited for a shore based week before or after one of our Lefkas or Ithaka flotillas, or one of our two week flotillas which finishes in the South Ionian.
