Puerto Del Carmen Holidays

GENERAL

Overview

As probably the liveliest resort in Lanzarote , holidays in Puerto Del Carmen aren't for shy and retiring types. However, if you're looking for a fun-filled holiday, with all night bars, fantastic beaches and a great party vibe - look no further!
While it's busy, you can't knock the beach at Puerto Del Carmen ' it's a vast 6km stretch of golden, soft sand. Grab a sunlounger and enjoy the views out to sea, or make the most of the watersports on offer if you love to get active. The amazing nightlife is one of Puerto Del Carmen's biggest draws, with pubs, bars and clubs open from dusk till dawn. Forget quiet drinks ' Puerto Del Carmen is about dancing the night away, laughing with new friends and letting your hair down! Of course, there are some quiet spots to be found if you need a breather.

Places to Go

Timanfaya National Park
If you fancy a change from the sunlounger - and providing the night before hasn't been too heavy - a trip to the Timanfaya National Park is an exciting prospect. This vast and intriguing beauty spot has over 50km of lunar-like landscape to explore. Marvel at the 'Fire Mountain', lava fields and imposing, jet-black rock faces for an other-worldly adventure.

Fuerteventura
Just 30 minutes away by boat you'll find Fuerteventura , another popular Canary Island getaway, where you can explore its biggest beach resort Corralejo or head to the amazing sand dunes in the National Park. Island-hopping is a fantastic way to get extra value for money from your Puerto Del Carmen holiday.

Mirador Del Rio
Head up to this Lanzarote observation point that's carved into the lava rock and you'll be treated to amazing views over El Risco Beach and over to nearby La Graciosa island. Don't forget your camera!

Things to Do

Windsurf
While you'll find ample watersports in Puerto Del Carmen, a quick trip to Playa Cucharas will offer you some of the best windsurfing conditions on the island. There are several teaching schools here, with tuition for beginners readily available.

Hit the Strip
The Avenida de las Playas is the main 'strip' in Puerto Del Carmen, and where you'll find the biggest concentration of restaurants, bars and clubs. Whether you want to enjoy a pint in an Irish pub, sip cocktails in a bar or dance until the sun comes up, you'll find whatever floats your party boat here on holidays to Puerto Del Carmen.

Catamaran Cruise
Not quite a boat, not quite a raft, a catamaran is a fun way of heading out to sea on a sightseeing cruise. Take an excursion to Papagayo Bay for the chance to see dolphins, flying fish and pilot whales, swim or snorkel in deep waters, or simply relax on deck under a bright blue sky.
