Everyone is welcome to join the procession, so don’t just sit there taking photos – join in with the party and do the carnival shuffle while you make some new friends. Fancy dress isn’t compulsory, but why wouldn’t you wear it? Inexpensive costumes can be bought from many shops on the island, and there’s no need to follow the official theme.  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Bogavante, El Golfo

Sunday lunches are important here in Lanzarote – it’s a time to unwind and enjoy a long, slow meal in the company of friends or family.

One of our favourite places to go is El Golfo – the village has many restaurants, and they are renowned for their fresh fish. We recently chose Bogavante for a meal with some very good friends, who were staying in Playa Blanca.

Bogavante opens directly onto the ocean and the outside terrace is actually on the beach. We were lucky to find a table there – we hadn’t booked, but we did arrive early at about 1PM. As you walk into the restaurant, you go past a large tank with live lobsters in it, and three of us made an instant decision to go for the speciality of the house.

We were surprised and impressed when not one, but two Lamborghinis pulled up outside while we were there, and their owners came into the restaurant as well. We didn’t even know there were two Lambos in Lanzarote!


For starters, we ordered various mixed plates – Lapas, local cheese and smoked salmon tostadas. The lapas (limpets in English) were  read more »
