This is indeed a vote of confidence in Ireland West Knock and our region during a challenging time within the travel industry in Ireland. We are confident that the very popular Lanzarote programme will be well received by the public and travel agents in the region and we hope these holiday packages to Lanzarote prove to be hugely successful as they offer some fantastic incentives such as free child places and €50 off per adult on bookings made until Sunday 15th March through the Mayo Travel Agents .  We look forward to working with the Sunway team in the forthcoming seasons and wish them every success in their new venture at the Airport.”
A sunshine holiday haven, the island of Lanzarote sits along the same latitude as Florida and the western Sahara, virtually guaranteeing average daily temperatures of seventy degrees or more in winter!
It's just as well, because a holiday here centres largely around the sea with its excellent watersports, marvelous beaches and secluded coves. There are alternatives, however, including the capital of Arrecife, a historic port town with a fortress, museum and gallery of modern art.
The Timanfaya National Park should also top your sightseeing agenda. Its dark, dramatic landscape is home to the lava fields and awesome craters of Fire Mountain as well as Cueva de los Verdes, an immense volcanic tube, which extends for more than five kilometres down to the sea.
Lanzarote is a mecca for watersport enthusiasts, every type is available including surfing, windsurfing and jet skiing, plus there's a sub-aqua school in Costa Teguise and scuba diving facilities in Puerto del Carmen. Most of the island's resorts are in the South East with all new developments built to compliment their surroundings. Costa Teguise is quiet and relaxing whilst lively Puerto del Carmen parties from dusk 'til dawn!
