There is lots to do in Lanzarote including Timanfaya national park. The island is very easy to navigate with cheap car hire. Timanfaya is around a 30-40 minute drive from the port. Other places worth a visit include:
Jameos de agua - A lovely theatre built inside a volcanic cave with the worlds only albino crabs.
Cuevos de los verdes - A series of volcanic caves with some stunning underground pools and stalactites
Cesar Manrique foundation - former home of the world famous artist from Lanzarote. The home is stunning and is built inside a volcanic bubble
Mirador del rio - stunning viewpoint 1500ft high to the north of the island overlooking the neighbouring island of La Graciosa
Town of Teguise (not costa Teguise) - original capital of the island. Quaint old town.
There is also numerous good beaches dotted around the island.

We are visiting Lanzarote on our cruise any ideas where best to visit.
Ive seen a trip to Timanfaya national park quite expensive would it be worth it?
Any idea please, is it worth just getting off the ship and going to the nearest town .
Lanzarote has to be one of my most favorite islands in the world! Lucky you to be going there. I hope you like it as much as we did. When we got off the Equinox we made a beeline to the car rental agency Cicar. Cheap car rentals and the personnel are very nice. It's right at the port so it's easy. We drove from one end of the island to the other. There are maps in the rental office. We got to the all the places T6oyd mentions and a winery too. Great day and we had so much fun and took lots of photos.
