Lanzarote Book Review - A Price Worth Paying

I really enjoyed this book by Andy Wilson. A Price Worth Paying is a thriller where a good part of the action is set in Lanzarote. The story follow salvage diver James Andrews, who ends up living and working in Lanzarote as a dive guide. But past events catch up with him here in the most spectacular fashion.


It’s obvious that the author knows the island well, although he doesn’t fall into the trap of being overly descriptive – there’s just enough information so that those of us who know Lanzarote can see exactly where everything is taking place in our own mind’s eye.  read more »

Circus Festival Malab Haria

The Festival de Circo ‘MalabHaría’ begins tomorrow for three consecutive evenings on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th January 2016.


This year many of the events will be taking place in the Terrero de Lucha de Haría within the football grounds, rather than in the Plaza as in previous years. The council released 1,320 tickets, which were offered free of charge and these have all gone within 3 days of availability.

Don’t worry, there is still a chance to see these performers in action as the wrestling ring has a capacity for 500 people, so anyone without a free invitation can go to the box office at the sports stadium in the hour before the performance starts until the seats have been filled. Doors open at 20:15.
