Setting a new record, Lanzarote has broken it’s population record of 150,000.

For the first time in the island’s history, Lanzarote has surpassed last year’s population record of 150,000 inhabitants. Last year had seen the population increase by 2.1%, bringing the total to 152,000.

It’s a notable achievement, as the previous decade had seen the population stagnate and decline between the years of 2013 and 2014. To have grown from 142,000 in 2014, to 152,000 at the end of the decade is some achievement for our little island.
