On arrival in Madeira, the party starts with a “Feira do Mar,” which is a programme of live events and tastings of regional cuisine, and it finishes with a “Festa Branca” or white night party.  read more »

Behind The Scenes At Ironman Lanzarote

Tomorrow around 1800 athletes will set off at 7AM to compete in the world’s toughest triathlon event. Some will complete the course in less than 9 hours, others will push the 17 hour time limit to the maximum, and many will stop along the way. For them, it will be one of the biggest days of their life, but without an army of over 4,000 volunteers and staff, it couldn’t happen.

We thought we’d go behind the scenes of this iconic event, which is so valuable to the island’s economy, to show you some of the work that goes on.

Monster Radio - Lanzarote's Newest Independent Radio Station

The last time we caught up with Lanzarote’s Monster Radio back in October, the station was just about to go on air, and promised to deliver an eclectic mix of music driven by what listeners really want to hear.

 

Now, just over six months later, Monster Radio is going from strength to strength and gathering a loyal following, both on the island and around the world.
