Lanzarote Restaurant Review, La Bulla

It was one of those days when nothing went right, the car didn’t start, the restaurant we had been planning to have lunch at was closed and then we found ourselves at La Bulla.

La Bulla Lanzarote

It was a very hot day in the capital and we started to relax when we found a slight breeze around the picturesque waterfront of Charco de San Ginés. Looking for somewhere new to try, we settled on La Bulla, liking it’s elevated position and panoramic view over the charco with the distinctive San Ginés church tower in the distance.

Charco de San Gines view from La Bulla

La Bulla offer Spanish cuisine with a choice of salads, tapas, tablas and pinchos. We liked their different combinations, looking across to other tables the chipirones rebozados was popular and looked great, I was tempted but in the end we opted for  read more »

Try Snorkelling In Lanzarote

There’s a whole world under the sea that opens up when you try snorkelling, and you can do it at any of the beaches in Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca. We have plenty to see, and very few species you’d want to avoid!

The Kit

Set

All you need is some good fins, a quality mask and a snorkel. Invest in decent gear, because whilst you can buy cheapie stuff, the masks leak, and the fins are often too small and floppy to get decent drive in the water. Go for a mask with a silicon, rather than rubber seal. To check the fit put it on your face, without the strap and “suck.” The mask should stay in place. Go for a long snorkel, so that waves lapping don’t enter the tube, and the fins should be stiff and fit the feet well. The longer the fins, the faster you’ll move, but also remember they need more work, so you will  read more »

Lanzarote Information Sangria Recipe

Every restaurant on the island seems to have a different Sangria recipe ranging from watery fruit juice to a “blow your head off” concoction with Cointreau thrown into the mix. And in between, there are several really excellent varieties of the drink, which has become synonymous with enjoyment in the sunshine.

Here’s our version – we’re not saying it’s any better than anyone else's, but we like it and we’ve spent a few years diligently researching to get it to our taste!
