Puerto del Carmen’s main beach is right in the heart of the resort, and perfectly equipped for long, lazy days spent by the sea. When you need a break from sunbathing, go for a drink on the seafront promenade or wander along to Playa Chica and hire jet skis. For a change of scenery, take the bus to the local water park and cool off in the pool and get ready for a big night out. Puerto del Carmen’s nights out are long and loud, with the biggest choice of clubs, bars and pubs on the island.

Situated on Lanzarote’s golden south coast, Puerto del Carmen has some of the best beaches on the island. The main beach is Playa Grande, a gorgeous stretch of sand in the centre of town. The beach has top facilities with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas, plus an upbeat promenade with shops and bars. If you fancy an adventure, take a stroll up the coast to the smaller Playa Chica. The best place in Puerto del Carmen for water sports, here you can go parasailing, race your mates on jet skis or go diving in the incredibly clear water. 

The old quarter of Puerto del Carmen is popular for its traditional Canarian charm, and is a lovely area to explore on foot. Here you can find a few authentic tapas bars and seafood restaurants, while the old town is the best place in Puerto del Carmen for shopping. Visit on a Saturday to shop at the lively market or head up to the main mall for clothes shops. If you fancy a day trip, the resort is home to the Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park. Not just for kids, the Rancho has a fantastic water park with huge swimming pools and water slides.

Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote’s nightlife capital, coming alive after dark with a mix of clubs, sports pubs and all-night parties. The main street, Avenida de la Playas, is the best place in Puerto del Carmen for the biggest clubs open until the early hours. After a long day on the beach, the waterfront is a good place to get the night started. Chill out with a cocktail on the beach and listen to some live music before hitting the pubs for karaoke, theme nights and drinking games. Next up, visit Avenida de la Playas for dancing until the early hours.
