Go Karting San Bartolome, Lanzarote

The track at San Bartolome is a cracker! A long main straight brings you to a hairpin left, and then you drop down the hill into an S bend. If you can exit the S well, you’ll have the speed to climb well through a series of turns back up and you’ll hit the start finish straight again maxing the kart out. Unlike so many Go Kart tracks around the world, this isn’t a case of keeping your foot in and simply steering. It takes skill and good control to lap quickly, and you get a lot of satisfaction from doing so.

Here’s a short video of the karts in action:

Currently there are two types of karts to choose from – the standard ones and some new, more powerful ones for more experienced drivers, and there are plans to extend the track to allow use of some new really powerful karts in the near future.  read more »

Fish Farm in Playa Quemada

Visitors to the tiny picturesque village of Playa Quemada or guests aboard the Catlanza catamaran trips to Papagayo might have noticed the fish farms situated off the coast of Lanzarote.

Fish Farm Playa Quemada Fish Farm Nets

The farm is owned by local company Yaizatun SA and situated in the area known as Bahía de Ávila. Founded in 2001 the farm was built as a nursery for yellow fin tuna, in 2008 the scheme was in difficulties so the farm took the decision to change their stock to seabass (dorada) and seabream (lubina) with much greater success. Now around 2,000 tonnes of fish are sold each year to major retailers supplying the central markets of Madrid and Barcelona in Spain and Portugal.
