Situated on the south-east side of Lanzarote, Puerto del Carmen is one of the island’s finest beach resorts. Sun-seekers have flocked here for decades to soak up the sights and sounds of the golden coast and its lively nightlife scene. It’s got a fabulous 7km of shoreline, where you can relax in the sunshine and get your adrenaline pumping with some water sports adventures. Then there’s a colourful promenade brimming with bars, clubs and restaurants to explore. If you’re looking for a little peace and quiet, you’ll find lots of charming Spanish eateries in the pretty old town. 

Things to do

You won’t have to go far to find Puerto del Carmen’s main beach; it’s right in the heart of the resort, and perfectly equipped for spending long, lazy days by the sea. When you feel like taking a break from sunbathing, you can pop indoors for a drink at the bustling bars on the seafront promenade. Or you could take a leisurely stroll along to Playa Chica and hire a jet-ski. If you’re travelling with the family, or fancy a change of scenery, the local waterpark makes for a fun-filled day out. And for those who want to stay out late in the resort, you’ll be pleased to hear that this place is Lanzarote’s nightlife hub, so bring your dancing shoes and glad rags for a great night out!
