Easter is more about religion than chocolate eggs, chicks and bunnies in Lanzarote. We have a long fiesta weekend although our bank holidays are held on Thursday and Friday before the weekend rather than Friday and Monday as in the UK.
You can buy Easter eggs and goodies on the island, Maceys supermarket in Tías imports them from the UK and have a large selection available from mini eggs to luxury gift sized eggs, plus hot cross buns and Easter greeting cards.

Almost everyone who comes to the island has tried our famous local dishes like Canarian Potatoes or perhaps Estofado. But there are some things we eat here that you may not have tried, so here are some suggestions for you, and we’ve also suggested where to go for our favourite version:
Bocadillo de Pescado
Yes, it’s a fish butty! Often served for breakfast, it consists of a thinly sliced fillet of white fish, which has been lightly coated in breadcrumbs and fried, then served in a bread roll, smothered with aioli (garlic mayonnaise.)
Our favourite place to eat these is at Bar Ginory in Arrecife, opposite the harbour and close to Charco san Gines. They use the freshest fish and cook them perfectly. We love having one there on a Saturday morning before going shopping.
Puntillas de Calamar
These are very small, whole baby squid, which are coated in a light batter and deep fried, then served with fresh lemon squeezed over read more »
There’s something special about sipping a cocktail whilst on holiday and there’s no shortage of places available in Lanzarote to enjoy this pastime. However, there’s no place quite like La Delicatezza in Puerto del Carmen.
The cocktail bartenders at La Delicatezza love to surprise and delight, this isn’t just a drink, each cocktail is created with flair by Anthony and presented in style by Chris. If you’re looking for a read more »

I was convinced I had seen Declan before because his face looked familiar (keep reading and you´ll find out why!).
It wasn’t until this year’s St. Patrick´s celebrations in the Harbour in Puerto del Carmen when I saw him perform the "Sam Hall"song live that his voice caught my attention. So I decided to get in touch and learn a bit more about him.
Hello Declan, where are you originally from?
I´m from Ardara, Co. Donegal in Ireland.
Do you have a stage name?
No, just my name Declan McTaggart.
How long have you lived in Lanzarote?
I only spend 3 months a year in Lanzarote but this is my fourth year doing it. Usually January, February and March.
Ah, that´s why you looked familiar! What brought you here in the first place?
My sister lived here for 5 years and I came first here on a family holiday 11 years ago.
And you got the Lanzarote bug, of course! For those who don´t know you yet, can you tell us what you play?
