Blackstone Treks and Tours Listed As A Top Ten By Telegraph

We know Annie Bennett (@anniebennett on Twitter) has a bit of a soft spot for Lanzarote. But we were really pleased to see she recently mentioned Blackstone Treks and Tours as part of a Daily Telegraph article called “Top ten activity holidays in Spain.”

Specifically, she was recommending their 4 to 5 hour trek in the Timanfaya Mountains, but also mentioned that they offer various other walks and tours. She also recommended Sands Beach Resort for accommodation in Costa Teguise.

UD Lanzarote 3 US Yaiza 0

This was a great derby match; plenty of action, some great quality football, four red cards and a derby match just wouldn’t be complete without the traditional full on brawl.

This win puts the Rojillos just one point behind league leaders CD Marino who lost their first game of the season on Sunday. Incredibly Lanzarote are now 14 points clear of fifth spot and as there are only four teams in the play offs Lanzarote must now surely focus on top spot to claim a Copa Del Rey place for next season. If any of you do not know Lanzarote´s cup history just click on history at the top of this page and all shall be revealed.

The game began at a very good pace and did not relent for the full 90 minutes which delighted the biggest crowd of the season with 1200 spectators . In the 6th minute a superb in swinging free kick delightfully floated into the box and was met by the towering figure of Lanzarotes Captain Rosmen. The league’s top scorer timed his jump to perfection and guided the ball with the weight of the free kick into the top corner giving his side an early 1-0 lead.

Two minutes later and the Rojillos were inches away from doubling their advantage when Toñito cut inside and from 20 yards hit a low powerful shot that beat the keeper but unfortunately for the Lanzarote winger it hit the left hand post and away for a goal kick.

In the 16th minute the Rojillos had a wonderful opportunity when the impressive Yaco hit in a low cross and Yaiza defender Kamara went to ground and raised his hand which the ball struck and the Ref immediately pointed to the spot. The tall central defender was lucky to stay on the pitch as he already had a yellow card and could have easily been given his second for this offence.

The ever reliable Rosmen stepped up looking for his 21st goal of the season and sent the keeper the wrong way but the ball flew off the post and away to safety.

The fourth placed side only real effort of the first half came shortly after when a free kick from 20 yards was deflected off a Lanzarote defender and all they earned was a corner kick.

The Rojillos didn’t have to wait long to get their reward for such positive football and what a reward it was  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.

British residents in the Canary Islands urged to register for healthcare and social services for future peace of mind

British Consulate and Spain Healthcare Team to host 
four free information events this month

Some 45,000 British nationals are believed to live in the Canary Islands but only 32,000* are registered with their local authorities. That means one in three Brits risk missing out on basic social services when in future they need it most.

So the British Consulates in Las Palmas and Tenerife, and the Healthcare Team in Spain that represents the UK’s Department of Health, are joining forces with local town halls to tell residents about the importance and benefits of registering for healthcare and other public services.
