Puerto del Carmen
This former fishing village is now a busy, popular resort boasting a long beach of golden sand and two additional beaches, all providing excellent facilities. For a quieter time there is a small cove in the old part of Puerto del Carmen, popular with the locals and ideal for a spot of snorkelling. The resort boasts an abundance of cafes and restaurants, an array of shops and boutiques. It has a lively nightlife with bars and clubs lining the beachfront strip however, the quieter delightful Old Town has quaint narrow streets that lead down to the charming harbour. Within walking distance and towards the Matagorda area, the quieter relaxed resort of Playa de Pocillos is one of the newest on the island. For family luxury holidays in Lanzarote it is a popular choice as the emphasis is on the long, wide, blue flag sandy beach, excellent watersports facilities, and good selection of restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets.
The quiet resort of Puerto Calero is a 3km walk along the coast from Puerto del Carmen and features a promenade and attractive waterfront with a stylish marina. There are a few designer and surf wear shops, plus numerous charming restaurants in the harbour area. The sandy beach is safe, perfect for families and sun worshippers.
Costa Teguise is a popular well-established east coast resort providing an ideal base for exploring the island’s sights. Quiet, relaxed and friendly, the resort is great for families whilst the onshore breeze offers a paradise for windsurfers and watersports enthusiasts. The 600m long main soft sandy beach is in the heart of the resort, and there are three smaller coves which are slightly more sheltered from the winds. Nightlife is fairly low key although there is a good variety of restaurants, bars and shops.
Located on the south-western tip of the island, the pretty beach resort of Playa Blanca, once a small fishing village, is a great choice for a peaceful holiday. Sympathetically developed with low-rise buildings, traffic-free avenues, attractive public areas, and a small commercial centre with a handful of shops, the main attraction is the glorious blue flag awarded white sandy beach. Additionally, there are a number of small beaches in the area and a short distance away is the famous and unspoilt sandy beaches at Playa Papagayo. For those looking for respite on luxury holidays in Lanzarote, Playa Blanca is the perfect choice. Ferries to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura run from the harbour which also features a good selection of seafood restaurants, waterfront cafes and bars, plus there’s a further choice of eateries in the old village.
International cuisine is readily available, although Tapas bars are found all over the island. Much of the food is similar to that of Southern Spain although as you would imagine, fish is predominant. Many of the luxury hotels in Lanzarote offer great choices of international and local dishes.
Local dishes such as pescado a la sal, fish baked in salt, along with fresh tuna, calamari and octopus can be enjoyed with papas arrugadas, wrinkly potatoes boiled in seawater and served with mojo, a traditional Canarian sauce made with garlic and herbs.
