Lanzarote has an extremely low crime rate and you can generally feel safe around the island at any time of day or night.

CD El Cotillo 1 UD Lanzarote 1

Lanzarote are fast becoming the team know as the King of the draws as they have now drawn seven of their eleven matches played though not many Lanzarote fans will be complaining about their last two away draws, here against the team who began the day as league leaders and last week against the side that are now league leaders.

UD Lanzarote Fuerte

The Rojillos have slipped to 10th spot but are one of three teams who have lost just once this season and are still just three points off a playoff spot and a further point off top spot.

The club organised an excursion to the game and once again it proved to be outstanding value, just 20 Euros for residents and 35 Euros for non residents (cannot be the same price as non residents do not get the discount on the ferry). Players and supporters met at the stadium in Arrecife before picking up people in Playa Honda and filling up the 85 seater double decker bus in Puerto Del Carmen before making our way to Playa Blanca to catch the Armas ferry to Fuerteventura.

On arriving in Corralejo we rejoined the bus for the 30 minute ride to Cotillo. It was an hour in the bars before making our way to the ground. For that price the club even bought everyone a bocadillo (roll). Hopefully there will be another trip to Fuerteventura in January when we play Unión Puerto on the 8th January.

The first half played in baking sun was extremely competitive with much of the game being fought out in the midfield. The Majoreros (Fuerteventurians) had the first opportunity when a header from midfielder Héctor which was well saved by the returning Rojillos keeper Agoney. Lanzarote replied when stand in skipper Ayoze rounded the goalkeeper on the half hour but his effort was cleared off the line by a defender.

The simple answer is that there are 1764 Bars on the island and 982 restaurants. If you wanted to visit them all, and could manage three a day, it would take you about two and a half years.

The split by municipality looks like this:
