Golf course Lanzarote Golf Resort, Puerto del Carmen. Lanzarote.

Golf lovers should not miss a round of golf at the Lanzarote Golf Resort in Puerto del Carmen (Tías, Lanzarote). Its strategic location from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the coast and the Atlantic Ocean, the only green on the island and with volcanoes as the backdrop, all of this makes this a very special and unforgettable experience.

This golf course was designed by Ron Kirby, Projects Manager at Jack Nicklaus´s Design Services. The course has been designed to take the advantage of the natural shapes of the terrain and as a result the course is challenging but not unfair for the players.

Ever since the opening a decade ago the Lanzarote Golf Resort year after year the course has been adapting, expanding and modifying to suit the even most demanding players but also the ones new to the sport. Something that really makes it unique. No matter what level you are you can enjoy playing here as the course is ambitious and demanding but also fair.  And, also, the greens here are great if we were to compare them to other courses.

The views and features of the course help and invite you to have a relaxing game. Giving time to think and execute a clean and effective shot. The course does not suffer from being overcrowded and there is nothing around that would spoil the views, so when you step onto the course you will experience a sensation that will force you to take it easy …

The best months to visit the Lanzarote Golf Resort are from June to August because there are fewer people and you can enjoy a more relaxed game. The months of September and October are when the players, usually older, meet at the Golf Course in Puerto del Carmen for a spot of golf, chat and to share their experiences either in the shop or the restaurant both located on site.

But if there is something that the organisers and managers have dedicated time, love and care, it is in the very environment of Lanzarote Golf Resort. They have done so by maintaining a century-old walls that give the final touch to the perfectionist design of the course. Demonstrating a high commitment to the environment taking care of all the details so that the fauna and flora that is there always feels at home.

On the website you will find an extensive and detailed guide of all the flora that you can find as you making your way around the course and the birds that will fly overhead. Some of them are native and others that are just making a stopover while on route to other places. In fact they have specific areas for bird watching in order to enjoy their passage without hindering it.

There is also a practice area with twenty shooting ranges on synthetic mats, a putting green and an approach green. If needed you can also rent all the golf equipment. So there really is no excuse not to start or at least try it. Without a doubt, visiting Lanzarote Golf Resort will satisfy you in many ways.

5 things you didn’t know about the volcano island: Lanzarote.

5 things you didn’t know about the volcano island: Lanzarote.

Lanzarote is especially known for being a sunny destination with a bunch of beaches. But Lanzarote is more than that. It’s an island that surprises as soon as you arrive.
If you arrive at night, the colored lights will illuminate you. Areas like Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife shine brightly at night. If you arrive during the day, the reddish color of volcanoes and the black of the earth will catch your eye. All this makes Lanzarote an island not to be forgotten.
There are some things that surprised us all when we arrive on the island. Everyday things that gradually become curious:

1º: Coffee in Lanzarote. 

Coffee in Lanzarote seems comething simple to order: black coffee, milk, American, decaffeinated, long or short coffee. But no! In Lanzarote, there are endless options for enjoying a good coffee. Don’t be afraid, we are here to explain everything.

  • Cortado corto: it’s like a café au lait, with less milk and smaller.
  • Cortado largo: like the previous one, but bigger. Both look like coffee with milk but less big…
  • A leche y leche: a café au lait with a base of milk meringue
  • Cortado con leche líquida: a small café au lait with normal milk
  • Barraquito: dark coffee with evaporated milk, condensed milk, liquor 43, lemon zest, cinnamon powder and two coffee beans
  • Café con leche: the classic café au lait. Be careful to specify that you want a coffee with milk (café con leche) under penalty that one looks at you while saying to you: “So, you want a cortado largo, no…?”
  • Descafeinado: Café au lait without caffeine. Be careful to specify coffee descafeinado well, under penalty of misunderstandings.
  • Americano: or caffé americano is a coffee with espresso and hot water.
  • Cappuccino: Classic. one of the best I could taste

2º: The wind in Lanzarote. 

The wind in Lanzarote doesn’t bother at all, it does your hair (or messes up your hair). You should keep this in mind when packing your suitcase, as if you are thinking of bringing light clothes, you will spend some frights on this fantastic island. The wind lifts everything…!
In addition to carefully choosing your outfits to spend a few days on the island, I recommend adding a windproof jacket or jacket for cool evening ends. When you finish the day with a beer, a Lanzarote wine or a coffee on a terrace, you will thank my advice to take a jacket with you!
Important: do not be discouraged if you see that the day starts cloudy with a grey sky. In the middle of the morning Lorenzo becomes hitting harder and the clothes quickly become a burden. In Lanzarote, what is important is not how the day begins, but how it ends… 

3ª Curiosidad: El Gofio en Lanzarote. 

Lo escucharás cuando te ofrezcan los postres en un restaurante: mousse de gofio, tarta de gofio… Se trata de una harina no cernida típica canaria hecha a base de cereales tostados, normalmente trigo o maíz. De color oscuro, que varía de tonalidad según el grado de tueste de los cereales. Se utiliza en todo tipo de recetas isleñas, pero es en los postres donde más lo puedes encontrar. Les da un toque rico y suave, a la vez. Y la tonalidad hace distinguirlo al instante. ¡¡Y, además, es un indicativo de que el postre es casero!! Te propongan lo que te propongan, ¡pruébalo!.

4ª Curiosidad: Los volcanes de Lanzarote. 

La isla de los volcanes no deja indiferente a quien la visita. Su orografía está marcada por el color negro, piedras volcánicas, cuevas subterráneas y lo que en su momento fueron volcanes rugiendo lava los que te dan la bienvenida con los cráteres abiertos. Y es que la memoria conejera está marcada por erupciones volcánicas que comenzaron hace 11 millones de años y que han dejado un paisaje que semeja a otro planeta con zonas cubiertas por lava solidificada, cenizas, géiseres y una flora que brilla por su ausencia.

La Isla de Lanzarote tiene el honor de dar cobijo a 25 volcanes recogidos en El Parque Nacional de Timanfaya (1974). Pero de entre todos, son Montaña de FuegoMontaña Rajada y Caldera del Corazoncillo los más admirados. Para mantener su atractivo marciano intacto Lanzarote fue declarada Reserva de la Biosfera (1993).

5ª Curiosidad: Las playas de Lanzarote. 

En Lanzarote hay tantos tipos de playas como uno se pueda imaginar. Desde la más salvaje y remota como la Caleta de Famara, imprescindible para los amantes del windsurf y surf. Como la urbana y accesible para todos los públicos como la de El Reducto. Playas con arena blanca y fina, otras con arena gruesa y amarilla; con piedras volcánicas. También las podríamos dividir por playas nudistas, playas ideales para practicar deporte como surf, buceo, paddle board o las mejores para compartir en familia con niños. Muchas de ellas están equipadas con hamacas, sombrillas y servicio de socorrismo.

Pero son los atardeceres que en ellos se vive, lo que hace de las playas de Lanzarote un lugar especial donde despedir los días de una forma única e inolvidable.

Playas de Lanzarote

Curiosidades de la isla de los volcanes: Lanzarote.

Lanzarote es una isla que sorprende, enamora y engancha. Si decides vivir en ella, los que no la conocen te dirán que se te quedará pequeña, que echarás de menos tocar “tierra firme”; que te agobiará la insularidad. ¡¡Nada más lejos de la realidad!! Lanzarote tiene tanto por ver, tanta gastronomía por probar, tantas playas a las que ir, tanta cueva por descubrir, que te hará falta mucho tiempo para sentir que ya lo has visto todo. Y aún así, te quedarán rincones por guardar en la retina.

Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara, Teguise. Lanzarote.

Our experience at the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara, Teguise. Lanzarote.

The truth is that I do not know which dish to recommend to you if you were lucky enough to visit the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara (Teguise, Lanzarote). The menu is so innovative that it’s difficult to name to name them all. But for me, there are two dishes that have totally changed my palate: The fried moray (morena frita) and the grilled octopus (pulpo al grill)… What an experience! I am not a real fan of the moray, but hey, I tried it and it was de-li-cious! Now every time I go, I always order it.
Every time I visit El Risco in Famara, I am always amazed by the great variety of Lanzarote wines they have. They also have a wide range of sweet wines that you have to taste. But above all, let them advise you, they never fail… And enjoy the tasting!

 

 

If you decide to spend a relax afternoon or a luxury dining by night at the emblematic El Risco Restaurant, you will enjoy it completely. Pedro and Marco together with the great team of professionals they have at their disposal, will make you enjoy a day full of joy and warmth.

Personally, I like to spend Sundays afternoon there very much. The kitchen closes around 17:00pm and most customers leave around 16:00pm… That tranquility, with the best views of Caleta de Famara, La Graciosa Island, La Alegranza, the Chinijo Archipelago and the impressive Atlantic Ocean in all their splendor and the changes in light on the beach, guarantee a charge of battery for the rest of the week.

 

Recommendations to visit the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara.

Very important: it is best to go with a reservation, even during the week at noon they are usually full. But don’t worry, they have a bar with an exquisite selection of wines and beers to wait for your table calmly. And a wide variety of gins to enjoy the best of after-dinner meals.

 

Curiosities in the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara.

Did you know that the paint on one of the walls is an original of César Manrique? César grew up very close to El Risco Restaurant and when he returned from his art studies, he helped decorate it. It has recently been renewed with the great interior design artist: Pablo Ramos Baldi. Respecting the work of the Great Son of Lanzarote: César Manrique.

Address of the Restaurant El Risco in Caleta de Famara.

El Risco Restaurant is also the only restaurant on Lanzarote to be included in the Guide Michelin Spain & Portugal 2015. 
Not to spoil the surprise we will not be telling you here what you will see on your right hand side as you enter the restaurant…
I would encourage you to share your experience with us.

At the end of your meal: Barraquito

A “Barraquito” is an espresso with warm, frothy milk, sweet condensed milk, liqueur 43, lime tray, cinnamon powder and, when it is served to 100% authentically, with 2 coffee beans. You just have to try it!

The “Barraquito” is very popular in the Canary Islands. This coffee drink comes originally from Spain and many people say that you can get a barraquito only on the Canary Islands. So it makes no sense to ask at Starbucks and Co. for a Barraquito. You have to come to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Palma or Lanzarote. The people her mostly drink a “Barraquito” after their meal as a mix of dessert and coffee. But obviously, you can also enjoy a “Barraquito” at any time of the day.

Important note: the beautiful sight of the layered ​​ingredients is only for the eye… Before you drink your “Barraquito” take a teaspoon, stir it well and: enjoy it!
