Once you have covered the first two steps, it’s time to choose which means of transport you will use to get to the selected location.

Taking a flight by plane is usually the best option, especially if it is a distant destination, and it is also the fastest way to get there.

Flights with stopovers are usually a little cheaper than direct flights, you can consider this modality; besides saving a little money, it will be an opportunity to know an additional place.

It is also important to locate the way to move to the selected beaches, from the place of accommodation.

If you travel to Lanzarote we recommend that you rent your car with the company that guarantees the lowest prices, as well as being the most honest of all the islands.

Now it is time to look for accommodation; this will depend on the type of traveller you are and what you want to obtain in an accommodation.

You can choose from a hotel, an inn or even tents on the beach.

It is important to consider the minimum comforts you want, because the trip could become a bad experience by selecting an accommodation lacking in services that you consider important and necessary.
