Flights to Lanzarote – Duty free heaven
The Canary Islands all have special Duty Free status so all your usual indulgences like tobacco, booze and perfume are a great deal cheaper than normal. Cool. As we write there’s a tobacco allowance of 200 cigarettes and you can safely pick up 60cc of perfume or 250cc eau de toilette without being told off. If you’re exploring flights to Lanzarote for a beach holiday bear in mind that much of the coast is rocky rather than sandy. Not to worry, they’ve imported sand from Africa and Europe to make up for it. For water sports and sun worshipping you can’t beat the golden sands at Famara, in the lee of the mountain and a haven for keen surfers. Choose flights to Lanzarote if you like the sound all this, and the supremely lovely Punto del Papagayo beach, unromantically translated as ‘The Parrot Spot’.
