Catlanza VI - Private Luxury Charter

We had a sneak preview last week aboard Lanzarote’s newest luxury yacht, Catlanza VI. Many readers will be familiar with her big sister, which does daily trips to Papagayo from Puerto Calero. 

But Cat VI is something different - still a sailing catamaran, but smaller and more luxurious and she’s being offered for private charter, with a skipper and crew, to enable families and groups to enjoy a truly special day, tailored to their own needs.

The choice is yours, but some of the options could be:  read more »

What's The Euro Rate In Lanzarote Today?

It’s the most asked question on Facebook, email, or anywhere else where readers connect with us. Especially since Brexit, and with the Pound falling steadily. 

There are a large number of booze / cigarette / electrical shops on the island that offer money exchange as a sideline. Most display a rate outside the shop, and then claim that’s the rate for travellers cheques, before offering a cent less for cash. 

The trouble is, the market is so volatile at the moment, that the rate is changing several times a day. 

And all that means we can’t keep up with the latest rate being offered in the resorts.

So here’s an easy rule of thumb that will give you a pretty good guide as to what rate is being offered at this very moment.

Check the current Interbank Rate online and subtract 2 cents.

How To Cope When It's Really Hot In Lanzarote

Over the last ten days or so, we’ve had very high temperatures in Lanzarote. Last week, the island recorded the highest temperature in all of Spain at 42,6 degrees, or 108 Fahrenheit. As I write this, the temperature outside our office in Haria is 38 degrees, and it’s climbing.

The island is also much closer to the equator than any other part of Europe, so we have extremely high UV at this time of year, which means you can burn very, very quickly.

Temperature 2

The obvious thing to do to stay cool is to keep jumping into the pool, or the ocean, of course! But here are some tips for when you have to wander away from the cool water.  read more »

The light that leads us

A small lighthouse caught my eye on one of my rare trips to Arrecife.

The Light That Leads Us

You might have seen it too, half tucked away in the back streets between the Charco de San Ginés, across from the Marina and on your way to, the Police Station or Ikea.
