Puerto del Carmen - Lanzarote - Canary Islands Hotels

Mini guide to Puerto del Carmen - Lanzarote - Canary Islands


On the southeastern coast of Lanzarote Island, 29kms northeast of Playa Blanca, is the sun-bleached town of Puerto del Carmen. The busiest town on the island, with a quaint old town and fabulous harbour-side attractions, it enjoys a bustling tourist scene.

The old town sits ponderously like an old fishing village, while much of the resort area is made up of modern, low-rise structures fusing the old architecture with a more modern style. In the early evenings, it seems the old part of town suffers from some sort of catalepsy, which is fine if you've been cooking yourself down at the beach all day.

Puerto del Carmen is home to three kilometres of golden sand, including the beaches of Playa Blanca, Playa Grande, Playa de Matagorda and Playa de los Pocillos. A host of activities are on offer, including sea fishing, scuba diving and beach sports.

A great daytrip would be a visit to Cueva de los Verdes (Jameos del Agua), a complex system of volcanic caves that stretches out 4.8kms to the ocean. Inside one of the caverns is a restaurant and bar, offering good food and the occasional live performance of local music.

Lanzarote is widely known to have a bustling nightlife, and nowhere else lives up to this title like Puerto del Carmen. Late at night, the town is home to a throng of restless holiday- makers intent on displaying some of their more carefree proclivities.

The town is situated 13kms from the airport, and taxis and buses run from the airport to the town centre. Lanzarote is 200kms northeast of Gran Canaria, and you can fly there from many international destinations and from the other islands in the archipelago. Ferries make regular connections with nearby Fuerteventura, and less regularly with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
