Valentine's Gifts At Chevere JR

Saint Valentine’s day (San Valentin in Spanish) is one of those multi cultural celebrations – a day of romantic love!

Chevere JR have been established on the island for 25 years, and many of their produces are still hand made by Rosa Gimenez and Juan Carlos Foti. Originally from South America, they started here in the local craft markets, before opening their first shop, with it’s own workshop at the back. Both are inspired by the island, and you’ll see volcanic lava featured in many of their exclusive designs. They also often use the “Lanzarote gem stone” olivine, which is a by product of the volcanic process, and they generally match the stones with high quality silver.


As well as their own jewellery, you’ll find a range of gifts in their shops, made from a variety of interesting materials like glass, leather and stone. The first store was opened 25 years ago in Puerto del Carmen, and was joined by a shop in Playa Blanca, outlets in various hotels around the island, and most recently  read more »

Concerns Raised About Hanglider and Paraglider Accidents In The Canaries

At this time of year the weather conditions are excellent for flying, and we’ve become used to seeing hangliders and paragliders in the skies around the island. Just this week, we counted 20 flying from the hills above Tabayesco and heading for a landing at Playa La Garita in Arrieta.

Orzola  Path

We reported one death here last week, and there was another accident  this week when a 47 year old British hanglider broke both his arms in a crash near Orzola.

In all, there have been 10 accidents across the islands in the last month – six in Tenerife, three here in Lanzarote and one in La Palma.

In most cases several emergency services are required to attend the scenes, often with the use of a helicopter as the areas where the crashes take place are  read more »

New Public Parking In Puerto Del Carmen

The Ayuntamiento of Tias has announced that a new car park will be created on public land in Puerto del Carmen. Offering parking for 300 vehicles, the new car park will be in the area of the new La Perla Shopping Centre at The Fariones end of the avenida. The initiative is part of phase two of the modernisation plan for Puerto del Carmen, which also includes a €6 Million investment in the area of Calle Pedro Barba to create a more up market “feel” with new pavements and street furniture. The hope is that this will encourage owners of some of the private complexes to invest in refurbishment of their own properties, many of which are now 30 years old.

The work already done as part of the first modernisation phase has resulted in €19 Million of  read more »

Lanzarote Wins Again In Irish Travel Industry Awards!

The island picked up another award from the Irish Travel Industry recently,  for “Best Winter Sun Destination.” This is the 12th consecutive time Lanzarote has won the award and confirms the on-going love affair the Irish have with Lanzarote.


In 2014 209,646 tourists visited the island from Ireland, making it our third largest market. When you consider the population of Ireland is only 4.5 Million, it demonstrates the true value of that business.

Cabildo President Pedro San Ginés said “This award reinforces the promotional strategy of Lanzarote and at the same time, defines a privileged position of the island in the Irish market."
