Lanzarote holidays are very popular among travellers who want to have a great time without breaking their budget. Many of the island’s highlights are either free or rather inexpensive. With good budgeting you can experience the best of this beautiful island for under $25 a day and the following tips show you how easy it is.

Explore attractions that are free

La Graciosa, is heralded by many travel experts as one of the top 5 Lanzarote attractions, is a tiny island off the north tip of Lanzarote. It is perfect for hiking or cycling as it has no roads but plenty of beautiful beaches and other hotspots.Visit the LagOmar house, a beautiful white stoned museum, art gallery, bar and restaurant all in one, backed by the hillside in Nazaret. You can explore the gallery, the gardens and walk through the water tunnel with stepping stones. Unfortunately, free entry has recently stopped but you can still go there for a reasonable €5 ($6.23) for adults and €2 ($2.49) for children.

But one of the things that can be done for free, since your holiday would be nothing without it, is enjoy the sun, sea and sand on the plethora of beaches around the island.

Use public transportation

The local bus, called guaguas (pronounced wah-wah) is the most economical method of transportation. Tickets range from €0.81 ($1.01) and €2.67 ($3.33) and you can save even more, if you plan for multiple trips, by purchasing a bus pass at the bus station in Arrecife, which works out as half the regular price of each trip.

Eat out locally

Avoid food costs within resorts, which are rather expensive, and buy fresh produce from farmers’ markets and make your own packed lunches. You can also eat in simple town and village restaurants known as sociedades and teleclubs (social clubs) for inexpensive, local food and drink that are run by the local people.

Also, you can take advantage of the two-for-one discounts during happy hour that local bars provide from 5-6pm.So once you know where to visit and eat, and how to get there, putting $25 a day aside to enjoy Lanzarote couldn’t be easier because you may even spend next to nothing on some days.

Do you still think Lanzarote is expensive?
