Puerto Del Carmen

Puerto Del Carmen is the ideal resort for spending long days in the sun and late nights on the town.
This is the spot where tourism really took off on Lanzarote – transforming a small fishing village called formerly La Tinosa into the islands most popular resort. And today Puerto Del Carmen boasts hundreds of restaurants and bars. Along with some decent shopping outlets and – of course – some excellent golden sand beaches.

The resort is nominally separated into two main areas – the
OldTown which is located in an around the atmospheric harbour area. And the (only very slightly newer) New Town, which runs from, the Biosfera Shopping Centre all the way through to the edge of the resort at the San Antonio Hotel. Where it merges with Los Pocillos and Matagorda.

In the
Old Town holiday apartments, bars and restaurants are all clustered around the harbour area. This is the place to head for come nightfall as there are some good places to eat arrayed around the port.

In the New Town the resort is demarcated by the Avenida de las Playas – which runs all the way alongside the 6km of beaches, which were instrumental in creating Puerto Del Carmen's popularity with holidaymakers. On the opposite side of the road from the beach lies a long row of shops, bars and restaurants. And Centro Atlantico – the central part of the strip - remains the epicenter of nightlife for the whole resort.

During the daytime life revolves around the resorts beaches. And there are a number to choose from. Playa Grande is Puerto Del Carmen's biggest beach stretching 1.2km – and offers good facilities such as sun loungers, umbrellas and toilets. It’s also especially safe for bathing and young children.

Playa Chica – located behind a little residential enclave next to the Fariones Hotel is the best for watersports. As parasailing, banana boats and jet-skis can all be hired on the small jetty next to the beach. Playa Chica is also partially enclosed by volcanic rock, making it a great location for diving and snorkeling.

These beaches can get crowded – especially in high season. So it’s also well worth checking out the smaller beaches that dot the coastline as you walk away from Playa Grande in the direction of the San Antonio Hotel. And the small beach in front of the Fariones – next door to Playa Chica – is also ideal for more peace and space.
