7 Mistakes To Avoid In Lanzarote

We’ve put together a list of the mistakes people most commonly make on their holiday visit to Lanzarote, in the hope we can help you avoid some or all of them!

Drinking spirits like you do back home!

Bar

We don’t have set measures for a gin and tonic or a whisky and dry – the bar person simply pours the drinks into a glass, and we’re generous by nature here in Lanzarote. It means your drink might be a treble or a quadruple measure compared to what you buy in your home country. Couple that with our low booze prices and it’s a recipe for getting legless! If you are a spirit drinker, maybe miss the odd round, or have a soft drink every now and then.

Not drinking enough water

Font vella

This ties in to some extent with the previous one, but the combination of drinking plenty of booze, with our high temperatures and perhaps more exercise than you’re used to, all adds up to a very real danger of dehydration. Always have water with you and keep drinking it – you’ll find bottled water available everywhere in shops and vending machines.

Not wearing good sun cream

Sunburn

The UV component of sunlight is much, much stronger than in northern Europe, so even on cloudy days you’ll burn! Keep applying  read more »

Eight Things To Do In Lanzarote When The Weather Isn't Good

It’s no secret that the weather this winter in Lanzarote hasn’t been brilliant. Apart from in November, we haven’t had much rain, but it has been generally cloudy and, by Lanzarote standards, cool. Talking to older Canarian friends, they all confirm it has been as cool as they remember it – on some days the temperature has stayed around 15 degrees. Without boring you with the details, this has been caused by an anomaly in the jet stream, which has resulted in reduced temperatures for the whole of southern Europe.

The good news is that things will return to normal, and the sun will gradually heat the land and buildings so we can enjoy our usual, much milder temperatures.

But in the meantime, here are some ideas for things to do in Lanzarote when the weather isn’t up to lying on the beach or sitting on a bar terrace watching the world go by:

Go for a walk!

Walk

All three resorts have fabulous promenades that run along the seafront that are flat and easy to negotiate, as well as plenty of places to stop for a tapa and a beer or glass of wine. Head inland, and you’ll find the island is full on fascinating tracks that wind around volcanoes, with stopping points at rural villages. Here’s more about walks in Lanzarote.

Visit one of the 7 attractions

Attractions

Lanzarote has seven official attractions which are all breathtaking and will give you an insight into the island’s history and volcanic origins. All are unique and well worth a visit. Our favourite is Timanfaya, where you can see some of the world’s most  read more »

Arrecife History Museum

The Museo de Historia de Arrecife is a history museum based in a castle on the waterfront of Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote.

The San Gabriel castle can be found on the waterfront of Arrecife. The castle was founded in 1593 when a square shaped fort was built over 5 years to create a defence against pirates. The outer walls, stairs, guardhouse, ammunition store, underground reservoir, dungeon and sentry boxes were added between 1666 and 1667. The castle was still inadequate to properly defend the island from buccaneers, so the San José castle over looking Puerto Naos was constructed and Las Bolas bridge added during 1771 and 1779.
