Lanzarote - The Best Place In Europe For Winter Sun

Over the last few days we’ve been reporting on heavy rain and winds here in Lanzarote. Anyone following our page on Facebook will have seen images and videos of how the heavy deluge has flowed down the mountains and out to sea and they will have read how the island’s infrastructure struggled to cope.

Rainy 1  Rainy 2

This kind of thing happens about once every five or six years!

Normally, Atlantic storms are carried well north of The Canaries and head up into Europe. In this case we caught the edge of it.

But don’t worry – Lanzarote is still the best place in Europe for winter sun!

That’s because we aren’t really in Europe at all – we’re only 64 nautical miles from the Saharan coast of Africa and we’re as far south of Madrid as that city is from London!

Our typical winter weather is plenty of sunshine, daytime temperatures from 22 to 25 degrees,  read more »

Chill Out Cruise & BBQ

If you’re looking for a small group boat excursion in Lanzarote with a relaxed atmosphere, the Chill Out Cruise & BBQ offered by Touristticket is just the trip for you.

Touristticket Office Playa Blanca HarbourChill Out Cruise

The Touristticket Office is perfectly placed next to the Chill Out boat in the harbour of Playa Blanca, where you can collect your tickets prior to boarding. This boat excursion to Papagayo is limited to a maximum of 12 people, which makes for a small intimate cruise.

At 13:30 Bruno & Natan welcomed everyone on board, we made ourselves comfortable on the cushioned deck at the bow of the boat, although there’s plenty of seating at the stern and a great view from up top if you have a head for heights.

Playa Blanca CoastlinePapagayo Lanzarote

We cruised out of the harbour and along the coast of the Playa Blanca holiday resort, passing the town beach, Playa Dorada, Marina Rubicón and on to Papagayo. You can hardly hear the engine and it was a really smooth passage across the bay where we cruised past the various beaches of Papagayo before mooring on a buoy off Playa Mujeres.

Almost everyone decided to take a dip, there are  read more »

Book Your Christmas Car Hire For Lanzarote Early

Lanzarote always runs out of hire cars at Christmas! In fact at peaks times like half term, mid summer and carnival season you’ll rarely find a small hatchback to hire, although some of the more expensive convertibles or luxury cars might still be available. Unlike Spanish mainland locations, we can’t simply draw cars in from surrounding areas, and the car hire operators can’t afford to have cars sitting around to simply cover periods when there is too much demand.

Our advice is to book early, and for Christmas that means now –  read more »

Flying Norwegian To Lanzarote

In common with most people who live in Lanzarote, we fly a lot! Over the years, we’ve travelled with most of the airlines that fly off the island, and they each have their pros and cons. On our recent trip back from the World Travel Market in London, we decided to try one of the new players, Norwegian.

Boeing-737-800

The airline has pitched itself into the budget market, but promises a little more than most in that segment. The thing that really appealed to us, as internet types, is that they offer free high speed Wifi on their flights, which meant we would be able to get some work done while we travelled.

The booking process was pretty standard, and once completed online, we were sent an email with a booking reference on it. We found the check in area at London Gatwick’s South Terminal easily enough and that was where we encountered something very different! Although there are people on hand to help, the service is pretty much automated.  read more »
