Volcanic Lanzarote is perhaps my favorite of Spain's Canary Islands. All black lava, a volcano, salt flats, surreal. The great shipwreck of the Telamon greets the dawn at Arecife's harbor. All over the island there are some amazing places created by the great artist Cesar Manrique. His viewpoints made of army forts, cafes in underground lava pools, and the amazing cactuses at "Jardin de Cactus" are over the top. Constant northeasterly winds too, bring a sweater.
