Lanzarote Walk - From Sea Level To The Top Of Lanzarote

Sally and I recently decided to take on a tough walk from Mala to Haría incorporating the Presa de Mala, the dam high above the village, which Miguel wrote about here. I have driven up there many times, usually taking friends who didn’t even know it existed, but I wanted to see what was beyond the dam.

As it was to be a one-way walk we caught the bus from Arrecife to Mala getting off at the Post Office. Heading north we took the turning on the left just after the school which goes past the pretty little church, Ermita de las Mercedes, and winds round, past fields of prickly pear cactus, to the bridge over the LZ1.  read more »

Where To Take Great Photos In Lanzarote

You don’t have to be a professional photographer to create great images of Lanzarote. The unique landscape of the island just begs to be captured, from the almost velvet textured appearance of the mountains at Femés to the dramatic, rugged cliffs of Famara and the wildly varying coastline.

The Fire Mountains of the Timanfaya National Park seem to constantly change colour depending on the light at different times of day. The vegetation and wildlife that survive in this hostile and seemingly barren environment are amazing photographic subjects.

Personally, I love to go to the high points from which you can take in the fabulous vistas of Lanzarote. In the south, Atalaya de Femés is the joint highest peak on the island and, disregarding the ugly communication masts, has the best views of this end of the island. You can also see Fuerteventura and, on a very clear day, it is possible to see the peak of Mount Teide on Tenerife.  read more »

Merendero de La Degollada

It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how long I have lived in Lanzarote, I still discover new places to go and new things to do. 

Merendero de La Degollada

This is the case of the Merendero de La Degollada. "Merendero" is a place to have "merienda", the Spanish snack children have mid afternoon. You could say a "merendero" is a picnic area. 

La Degollada is a hamlet south-west of Yaiza and its "merendero" is closer to Yaiza than to La Degollada, to be fair, less than two kilometers from the square in Yaiza.   read more »

Official Opening Of Museo Atlantico Lanzarote

We attended the official opening of the Museo Atlántico off the coast of Playa Blanca earlier this week. The museum, has been constructed by British artist Jason deCaires Taylor over the last two years, with many of the statues being moulded from local Lanzarote residents.

Wall

The museum, which is at a depth of around 14 metres, consists of over 200 figures - a 300 ton, 30 metre long wall, a botanical garden and a ring of bodies, all spread over an area of 50 X 50 metres of sand. 

Ring

Everything has been constructed from a PH neutral concrete and already sea life is beginning to appear on the artificial reef.   read more »

Holiday Reading For Your Kindle

I’ve been enjoying my Kindle for years, but since we started travelling, Jules has taken to the plastic book as well. Although she prefers paper books when she’s at home, carting 4 or 5 around, with limited luggage weight allowance, made no sense, so for travelling, she’s a Kindle user too.

We use the basic model, and unlike a tablet, you can read them in bright sunlight, but there are also versions with a backlight, which are great if you want to read in bed without disturbing anyone else.  read more »
