In a place thatís surrounded by water, itís only natural to try some water sports! Surfing is one of the most popular beach activities for both tourists and locals; you can easily drive your cheap rental car in Lanzarote to the lovely town of Famara, widely known in the region as a mecca for surfers.

Grab your cheap rental car in Lanzarote and head to Playa Blanca. In the surroundings there are numerous coves (some as famous as Papagayo) where you can spend a memorable and enjoyable day. Also, if you have energy to spare, we recommend you to try some proper scuba diving with a bottle to really have a chance of exploring the underwater sights.
For those who would rather keep their feet on firm ground, trekking is one of the best available options. The hiking routes in Lanzarote are a bit unusual, since the island lacks vegetation and the weather is usually quite hot. However, there are several interesting trails that you should explore while enjoying the amazing local landscapes. The coastal route of Timanfaya is one of the most spectacular options available; you can leave your cheap rental car in Lanzarote in El Golfo, and walk on the trail from there. This trail is 12 kilometers total and it will take you through the beautiful cove of El Paso, where you can do a little swimming to relax at the end of your trekking session.
