Ladies Cycling For Charity On The Island This Week

Jacqui Moore is one of our regular readers and visits the island often. She arrives again this week with a group of friends who have raised over £11,000 for charities by riding their bikes through various parts of Europe. They are planning a series of rides starting at Lagomar in Nazaret later this week, and everyone is welcome to join them or to make a donation to Cancer Research. We’ll be riding with them on Sunday, so maybe see you out there!

The girls

Here’s their story:

We are 12 ladies, mostly in our 40s, who have been cycling  read more »

Chill Out Cruise & BBQ

If you’re looking for a small group boat excursion in Lanzarote with a relaxed atmosphere, the Chill Out Cruise & BBQ offered by Touristticket is just the trip for you.

Touristticket Office Playa Blanca HarbourChill Out Cruise

The Touristticket Office is perfectly placed next to the Chill Out boat in the harbour of Playa Blanca, where you can collect your tickets prior to boarding. This boat excursion to Papagayo is limited to a maximum of 12 people, which makes for a small intimate cruise.

At 13:30 Bruno & Natan welcomed everyone on board, we made ourselves comfortable on the cushioned deck at the bow of the boat, although there’s plenty of seating at the stern and a great view from up top if you have a head for heights.

Playa Blanca CoastlinePapagayo Lanzarote

We cruised out of the harbour and along the coast of the Playa Blanca holiday resort, passing the town beach, Playa Dorada, Marina Rubicón and on to Papagayo. You can hardly hear the engine and it was a really smooth passage across the bay where we cruised past the various beaches of Papagayo before mooring on a buoy off Playa Mujeres.

Almost everyone decided to take a dip, there are  read more »

Book Your Christmas Car Hire For Lanzarote Early

Lanzarote always runs out of hire cars at Christmas! In fact at peaks times like half term, mid summer and carnival season you’ll rarely find a small hatchback to hire, although some of the more expensive convertibles or luxury cars might still be available. Unlike Spanish mainland locations, we can’t simply draw cars in from surrounding areas, and the car hire operators can’t afford to have cars sitting around to simply cover periods when there is too much demand.

Our advice is to book early, and for Christmas that means now –  read more »

The Man Behind The Lanzarote Videos

We have been featuring Jalle F’s videos of Lanzarote for some time now – we love his work, and he makes them for the sheer pleasure they give him and viewers, rather than for any commercial benefit.

We decided to catch up with Jalle to find out more about him and his passion for Lanzarote:

Greenpeace Protest At Oil Drilling Site Turns Nasty

The Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise occupied the planned oil drilling area yesterday in the early hours off the coast of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, prior to the arrival of a Repsol drilling vessel, Rowan Renaissance, accompanied by an unidentified Spanish Warship.

Greenpeace

As you can see from the video released by Greenpeace, Arctic Sunrise refused to move from the area when ordered to do so by the warship.

Things turned ugly later, when vessels from the navy ship rammed Arctic Sunrise’s own ribs as they tried to get in close to the drilling vessel. Here’s another Greenpeace video showing the incidents:  read more »
