This northern area of Lanzarote has a diverse range of fauna and flora especially unusual and interesting species of marine birds. The island has provided a welcoming safe haven for a large variety of resident and migrating birds and we are committed to their conservation ensuring it stays this way.
We use local suppliers such as builders, trades men, laundrettes etc... All the staff are people resident in the island so we create employment in the area. We promote rural tourism and take measures to encourage our guests to spend and use facilities locally. We provide full information on local restaurants, local farmers markets, how to integrate with the local Canarian culture and purchase local products and even offer an optional local produce grocery box for arrival (additional charge). Currently we sponsor the local Haria football team Costa Norte and recently organised the T shirts for their new kit for the 2016 season. We also sponsor the local Punta Mujeres bowling club, a very popular sport in the Canary Islands. Canarian bowls (bola Canaria) is a sport that requires precision throwing. The game bears many similarities to the game of pιtanque. The objective of the game is to situate the bowl as close as possible to the target, referred to as the 'boliche' or 'mingue'. There are areas dedicated to this sport in almost every village and is a very competitive sport in the Canary Islands with its own federation and league.
