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.

We were asked this recently, and we thought it was a really interesting question, so we found the answers!

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:

How to visit the Isla de Lobos from Lanzarote

I was recently commissioned to write another article for the Canary Islands tourist board, this time for the island of Fuerteventura. My topic was a day trip to the Isla de Lobos.

Naviera Armas

Although it takes a couple of boat rides from Lanzarote, it was relatively easy to organise, so I thought I’d share the details with you, just in case you fancy organising your own day out in the future.

The Isla de Lobos is small island situated between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, there’s not much in the way of visitor attractions it has a restaurant, a beach, a lighthouse and an information centre. It’s popular for walking, birding and surfing. 

I used the Naviera Nortour company for the Ferry Lobos Express service, tickets can be purchased online, or from ticket booth A from Grupo Lobos at Corralejo harbour. A return trip costs €15 for visitors and €12 for residents (proof required). They have boats departing Corralejo from 10:00 to 13:00 on the hour, every hour plus a couple in the afternoon. 

I caught the Naviera Armas 9am ferry from Playa Blanca. I had looked at all of the ferry schedules including Líneas Marítimas Romero and Fred Olsen however the Armas boat docked, allowing time to purchase my ticket in the harbour and catch the first Lobos ferry of the day at 10am, with a few minutes to spare.

Grupo Lobos

The busy catamaran took just 15 minutes to arrive at the pier on the Isla de Lobos, whilst most of the passengers took off to the left on direct routes to the beach and lighthouse, I walked  read more »
