Floating Water Park in Puerto del Carmen

Visitors and residents in Lanzarote could soon be enjoying a new inflatable water park on Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote.

Playa Grande Puerto del Carmen

The island doesn’t currently have anything like this, although they’re popular on the mainland. These water parks normally have a variety of water slides, trampolines and climbing walls like a floating assault course. An area of 900m2 has been approved by Costas and the local council which should be operational for 2 years from 2014-16.

Tías Ayuntamiento applied for the permission from the Demarcación de Costas de Canarias back in April which was approved in July. The decision has been published in the Boletín Oficial de Canarias on the 25th of August and interested individuals / companies have 15 days from  read more »

5 Sports Bars in Playa Blanca

We believe that these are the top five sports bars for tourists in the holiday resort of Playa Blanca. Listed in no particular order, they all offer something a little bit different aimed at visitors in Lanzarote who want to catch up on the latest sporting action.

The Irish Anvil

The Irish Anvil

Situated in an enviable position right on the promenade by the harbour at Punta Limones and the largest Irish bar in the resort. The Irish Anvil has to top our list of places where you can catch up with live sports coverage when on holiday in the South of Lanzarote. The bar is air conditioned inside with 4 big plasma screens and 5 televisions that can display up to 4 different channels covering the major sporting events including football, rugby, GAA, golf and horse racing.

With great food reviews, a large outdoor seating area and panoramic view across the bay of Playa Blanca The Irish Anvil is a great place for families as well as sportsmen.

Wax Bar

WAX Sports Bar

WAX might be considered a small bar, but it has the biggest atmosphere. Situated in  read more »

Ray & Jen celebrate 4 years on the rock

I met up with Ray at his local bar in Playa Blanca today, just around the time the couple would have been landing four years ago to start their new life in Lanzarote.

Jen Ray & RioFamily camel rides

We reminisced about the early days of settling in, but what I really wanted to know was four years on, was living in Lanzarote everything they thought it was going to be?

One of Ray’s concerns had been if he would be comfortable working in the heat of the summer, thankfully it hasn’t really been an issue. He explained that when you’re working for yourself it’s easier to organise your day to suit, so the more labour intensive tasks are scheduled for the morning and the admin during the afternoon where possible. The first winter was more of a shock when the couple found that it was much cooler than they had thought. This wasn’t down to the weather, more the position of their house which only benefitted from the early morning sun and the communal swimming pool wasn’t directly accessible. It made all the difference when Ray & Jen moved to their second property, a villa with private garden and swimming pool where they could enjoy the sunshine all day long, what ever the time of year. Definitely a good reason to rent first rather than buying a property straight off when you first arrive.

Something they miss from their first location in Playa Blanca is the  read more »

Miguel the beekeeper in Lanzarote

We were introduced to Miguel Galván during the third bodega hopping tour for residents with the Lanzarote Active Club.

Honey from LanzaroteHoneycomb frame

Miguel invited the group to tea and coffee on the terrace of his finca situated on the outskirts of La Villa de Teguise. He escorted small numbers of us to see his collection of six beehives at this location. Whilst there, we noticed a wine barrel that had been connected to a hive which was separate from the others. Miguel explained that this was new, he had recently found the barrel with some bees already in residence so he had connected it up to a hive, the bees could be seen busily buzzing up and down the transparent tunnel between the two.
