Lanzarote, at the north/east end of the Canaries, has a lovely warm climate all the year round.
Unlike other parts of the Canaries, Lanzerote has not been too badly exploited by tourism; one of Spain's most outstanding architects has seen to it that new buildings are kept within certain artistic guidelines. The island's volcanic origin is particularily noticable as the southern part of the island is predominantly raw lava. But the inhabitants know how to utilize the situation, they even grow excellent wine in the lava sand.
The central and northern parts of the island offer a large number of tourist attractions, landscapes on a big scale, and in the east Timanfaya National Park offers visits to a volcano with camel rides to the top. The capital is Arrecife, which does not offer very much of interest to the tourist. Puerto del Carmen is the big tourist spot with a topless beach (not to be confused with the topless Playa del Carmen in Mexico). No nude bathing occurs here. But it is an excellent place to stay, with very large hotel resources, many good restaurants, even a little bit left of an authentic Canary town, and car hire is very cheap.
Costa Teguise is a resort north of the capital, mainly catering to golfers - no nude bathing.
Playa de Janubia Near the town of Salinas del Janubio, this stunningly black-pebbled beach stretches for almost a kilometer. Used consitantly by nudists, but if you think normal sand gets hot under the sun, just wait. Beach is not remommended for swimming.
