Walks in Lanzarote

Mention Lanzarote and, for many, the first things to jump to mind are late nights and a party lifestyle, but there is plenty more to the island than clubs and beaches.  Stray a little way from the capital, Arrecife, and the two main tourist resorts Puerto del Carmen and Costa Teguise, and you will be struck by the Island’s sheer natural beauty and stunning landscape. 

The long, grey English winter is liable to bring even the most festive souls down with a bout of winter blues, and heading South for holidays is increasingly popular from October to March.  Lanzarote offers holiday-goers eager to escape the wet and cold a perfect getaway with warm weather and beautiful beaches.   

So – it’s finally been announced: the merger of BA and Iberia will create an airline with 408 aircraft, 200 different destinations, and estimated to carry 58 million passengers a year.

But what will it mean for travellers to Lanzarote that have seen wildly fluctuating fares from the UK over the past few years?

Lanzarote Golf Resort, Tias

This golf course opened only in 2009.  It is a long, interesting and scenic course, and we are told that it will challenge even the best golfer.  The club house 'Hoyo 19' has just opened, and offers a range of facilities including golf shop, bar and restaurant.

Lanzarote Ferries to Fuerteventura

Ferries to Fuerteventura, the closest of the larger islands, operate from Playa Blanca Lanzarote.

Barely a year after establishing its new Gatwick hub, Aer Lingus has withdrawn flights to Lanzarote from Gatwick, along with a number of other European routes.

Outlook for Sterling in 2010

For UK residents in Lanzarote, and for the recovery in the tourist industry on the island after last year’s falls, the prospects for Sterling in 2010 are very important indeed, and have a direct effect on spending power on Lanzarote.


We have come across a very good research document published by Hargreaves Lansdown, the UK investment and pension specialists.  Amongst other things, it suggests that the sharp fall in the exchange rate since the end of 2008 may have been overdone as a response to the very high levels of debt that followed the bail out of the banks.  

Nativity Scenes

All over Lanzarote at this time of year, you will see Nativity scenes being created in public areas, like this one at the Marina Rubicon, Playa Blanca.  These are real works of art, as well as a great celebration of the true meaning of Christmas.

Before 6th January, why not get creative with your digital camera, and send us yours. We will publish the best ones on the site, and donate 50 euros to your chosen childrens charity.

One of the best Nativity scenes is in Yaiza, but we've also seen a very large one at the Deiland Centre, Playa Honda. Please tell us about others you've seen.

El Dia de Los Reyes (6th January)

The big Christmas event in Lanzarote, apart from Christmas Day of course, is the Day of the Kings, also known as the The Three Kings, on 6th January. Don't miss the spectacular processions in Arrecife, Yaiza, and other venues.
