The heart & soul of Lanzarote

Tucked away in the centre of San Bartolomé is the Museo Tanit – a jewel of a museum that deserves to be far better known. We visited last month to discover some of the fascinating treasures within.

It’s got to be Arthur’s

Arthur's Bar is an institution in Puerto del Carmen. Located in the CC Maritimo, it's famous for fine pub grub, legendary Sunday dinners and sports galore.

Lanzarote access for all!

Island Mobility Lanzarote is under new ownership; and with tourism roaring back to life on Lanzarote, Dan and Jo Blumson's vital services and commitment to customer care are going to be in more demand than ever.

Eye in the sky

George Stephens is a photographer who publishes his work under the title gstee. He recently came to Lanzarote, and the incredible results prompted us to contact him to find out more.

Speed Racer

At 13, Jayden Baker from Las Breñas has a chance to get on the first ladder of the motor racing ladder after being accepted by the CRG Factory racing team from Bergamo, Italy – known as “the champions factory”.

The Healing Farm

LanzÁnimal is a unique place on Lanzarote, a therapeutic farm full of rescued animals in rural Guatiza which operates as a centre for animal therapy and educational visits. We spent a fantastic afternoon there last month, and would like to introduce you to some of the characters we got to know there.

“What we need is activity”

As the pandemic eases and Lanzarote opens up, we caught up with José Juan Cruz, Mayor of the most important tourist municipality on Lanzarote.

Cancer Campaigner

The new radiotherapy unit at Lanzarote's general hospital is likely to be open this month, and is a huge triumph for AFOL, Lanzarote's Association for Families Affected by Cancer. We spoke to AFOL's President, Carmen Arrocha, recently.

Keeping up appearances

Wendy Elbers has run a hairdressers in Costa Teguise for 8 months, and among her services is providing wigs for cancer patients who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy or other treatments. It's a hugely valuable job, providing self-esteem to people at their most vulnerable.

Making a difference

Aduén Morales García is a powerhouse. The young man from Argana Alta in Arrecife is one of the directors of the litter-collecting charity Lanzarote Limpia, a director of the Argana Alta Residents' Movement, Vice President of the Unión Norte Canarian wrestling club in Haría and a volunteer for Cáritas and a prisoners' reinsertion charity. We were lucky enough to grab him just before an important meeting at the Cabildo.
