It always amazes me how planes actually manage to take off and land. I’m not really in to plane spotting and the mechanics behind it but love to watch them take off and land.

Lanzarote airport is in a great position. You can follow the path around the runway, along side the beach of Guacimeta towards Playa Honda and get a great view of take off and landing from almost all angles. The best place for me is at the end of the runway. The planes almost touch your head as they arrive over the sea and you get the full force of the back draft.

There are a number of good photo spots elevated and alongside the beach, You can take your pick from a mixture of chartered airlines and occasional a private jet. The smaller propeller inter island planes also take off regularly.

Best to check the Aena website to find the busiest flight days , so you are not disapointed
