Lanzarote Walks - Famara

If you're a fan of hiking, and you fancy a change from the many volcanic trails of the island, pack your rucksack and head to Famara. Better known for its beach, surfing and kite-surfing, a number of trails lead out from this little hippy town.

Head south (with the sea on your right hand side), keeping close to the shore, and you'll find a sandy trail that takes you approximately twelve very quiet kilometres to the tiny village of Caleta de Caballo. The terrain is slightly undulating with no real difficulties, and the sound of the waves will be your constant, and probably only, companion. Along the way are numerous branches in the path leading inland and eventually back to the main road (turn left and follow down hill to Famara). Be sure to take plenty of water, snacks and sun cream however as there is nowhere to refuel along the way. Caleta de Caballo has no shops or amenities of any kind (earning itself the nickname 'Ghost Town') however, only a few hundred metres beyond is  read more »

Performed by Orquesta Clásica de Lanzarote, a previous concert of this kind was very well attended by both residents and tourists.

The theme of this particular concert is in honour of seamen with historical scene from Lanzarote. It’s 1762 and two British privateers Lord Anson & Hawke have attacked the port in Arrecife with a hundred men. The island fights back against the pirates with the cannons from San Gabriel Castle. Lord Anson is shot and killed by Lieutenant Colonel Carlos Monfort which causes the pirates to withdraw.

Arriving At Arrecife Airport, Lanzarote

Here’s what to expect when you arrive at the airport for the first time, and where to go once you’ve collected your luggage.

Airport

Approach and Landing

Generally, aircraft land from the ocean, so you’ll fly to the left of Arrecife, then turn and come in right over the beach – sit on the left of the aircraft for the best views. Occasionally, if the wind is “wrong” you’ll come in over the mountains, which is interesting, and you’ll fly over a main road just before touch down!

Most of the time, the aircraft will dock with an airway, but if the airport is really busy, a bus will come out to the apron for the aircraft which have been double parked.

Passport Control

Have your passport ready as you get off the plane, and you’ll have a short walk through corridors to passport control. It’s not always manned, but if it is, you’ll find the Guardia Civil officer will give a cursory glance at your passport.  read more »
