Halloween in Lanzarote 2014

Traditionally we celebrate the 1st of November as All Saints Day in Lanzarote, it’s a public holiday in Spain. The night before is the Víspera de Todos los Santos.

For those visitors asking for information about Halloween themed events in Lanzarote, the first ones have been confirmed and we’re sure more will be added before the end of the month. There are fancy dress shops on the island, so you can buy costumes, props and make up locally if you decide to join in the fun last minute.

Lanzarote Active Club Excursion to Alegranza

The Lanzarote Active Club have a few places left on their special boat excursion on Monday 20th October to discover the marine reserve in the north of Lanzarote.

Swim through the sea cave Alegranza ExcursionWalk to Caleta de Sebo

The island of Alegranza is privately owned, so special permission is required from the owner before you can visit. That’s why excursions here are limited and one of the reasons you should take the opportunity when there’s a chance of a trip. This is a full day excursion with the Lanzarote Active Club and it’s one of my all time favourites.

The day starts with a transfer from your accommodation to the harbour in Órzola, where the group departs on a boat for the island of Alegranza. On previous trips we’ve seen flying fish, Cory’s Shearwaters, turtles and on a very special occasion a pod of pilot whales actually came right up to the boat. Alegranza is a bird sanctuary, Eleanora’s Falcons migrate from Madagascar to nest here from April to October, ospreys and Egyptian vultures are also in residence on the island.

It’s normally possible to visit the the volcanic cave known as El Jameito, passengers can opt to swim through this brightly coloured sea cave to the jameo or take a small boat trip if the sea conditions permit.

After some time bird watching and swimming the boat  read more »

UD Lanzarote 2 Santa Ursula 1

A dramatic 94th minute penalty converted by captain Rosmen sees his side claim all three points which maintains the Rojillos 100% home record this season.

UD Lanzarote Rosmen-the-Lanzarote-Captain

The Conejeros (locals) dominated the early part of the match though it wasn’t until the 11th minute until the first strike of goal. Rosmen controlled the ball just inside the area and Brad fired in a shot which was palmed away by the Tenerife goalkeeper for a corner.

The visitors looked threatening from set pieces and in the 15th minute a free kick from the left found the head of ex Rojillo Faruk but his effort sailed over the woodwork.

Lanzarote were winning the battle in midfield with novice Brad Cockerill and the experienced Marcos Cabrera taking charge. The latter was unlucky when his strike from the edge of the area whistled over the bar.

The Rojillos held the majority of the possession but lacked ideas in the final third as  read more »
