With David Cameron (UK Prime Minister) and his family selecting Lanzarote for their annual vacation, of course media focused on the island the Cameron’s love.

This feature appeared in the Daily Mail Online and was titled ‘Holiday like the Camerons: Sun, warm seas and surfing in volcanic island Lanzarote’.

“Lanzarote offers some of Europe’s best surfing, with no shortage of dreadlocked dudes willing to hire out boards or coach you. The Camerons chose a villa near the old capital, Teguise, with SamCam apparently won over by its on-site yoga facilities. Certainly Teguise is a pretty little town, with a good choice of restaurants offering traditional Canarian fare — grilled octopus with herby ‘mojo’ sauce being such a favourite with our 12-year-old son that he soon demanded it for every meal. But Finca de Arrieta would have been a better choice. By which I mean, he could have felt all smug that he was saving the planet without compromising on comfort”.
