Lanzarote, with its distinct volcanic landscape in the west of the island (National Park of Timanfaya) is much less spoiled by tourism than Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura. The island tries to find a balance between tourism and keeping its own charm. From a diving perspective, Lanzarote is next to Europe's largest Marine Reserve, The Marine Reserve of the Chinijo Archipelago, so there are plenty of dive spots to chose from for every experience level.

Diving takes place mostly at the South-East coast and is similar to the other islands. There are groupers, rays, moray eels and a lot of native species. Playa Chica, in Puerto del Carmen, is possibly the most popular place in the Islands due to its biodiversity. The magnificent Chinijo Archipelago Marine Reserve is located offshore, near La Graciosa.
