Puerto del Carmen
Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote's largest resort town where you will find the 12 km. long boardwalk to the capital Arrecife. There are many fine natural sand beaches - great for swimming, long walks in the morning or a cozy evening with a visit to one of the many dining places you find along the promenade.

Puerto del Carmen was once a small fishing village, thanks to the beautiful, natural beaches have become one of the Canary Islands' best and most popular destinations.

The fishing port and the "old town" is still 2 of the main draws. The fishing port boats come in with the catch of the day, served in some of the many restaurants and tapas bars. In the "old town" you will find several cozy restaurants and opportunities for a bargain in the large, modern shopping mall located here.

Puerto del Carmen has grown from east to west along its south-facing beaches. Along the beach of Playa Blanca and Playa Grande are many shops and nightlife, it is well what is today considered the center of Puerto del Carmen.

Farther east lies Poscillosbeach and Matagorda, between Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife the capital, has a hotel and residential area with modern infrastructure and excellent hiking and swimming grown up. Among other things, they converted the old main road to a wide and nice beach promenade. In these tranquil surroundings are more beautiful accommodation alternatives and a pleasant shopping center with many nice restaurants and bars.
