The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote is the perfect year round destination due to its mild dry climate, minimal rainfall and cool sea breeze. Suitable for families with children to couples young and not so young, it is a fascinating island of unusual beauty and vivid contrasts that has a character all of its own. Lying just 60 miles away from the coast of Africa, Lanzarote enjoys a climate of clear blue skies and endless sunshine. The island also offers a wide range of villages, markets, shopping centres, restaurants, bars and discos, while sun worshippers can enjoy the long, wide beaches and relaxed, tranquil atmosphere.
Lanzarote is also an excellent venue for watersports enthusiasts as windsurfing, snorkelling and aqualung diving are popular and plentiful. Travel around the island is simple by using public transport or hiring a car which is very reasonable. A visit to the incredible lunar landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, home to Fire Mountain, should not be missed, while the natural caverns at Jameos del Agua, with its breathtaking views, is also well worth a visit. For anyone with even a passing interest in art, the César Manrique Foundation is spectacular where you get an insight into the raison d’être behind Lanzarote’s unique architecture.
Puerto del Carmen
Puerto del Carmen is the longest established — and probably best known — resort on the island. Nestled on the coast in the southern central part of the island, it is only a 10 minute drive from Arrecife Airport and is a convenient place from which to explore Lanzarote’s tourist and cultural attractions.
Like many places in Lanzarote, Puerto del Carmen was originally a small fishing village, and the old harbour is still a delightful place to visit, boasting some excellent seafood restaurants. Although the resort has grown over the last twenty years — it now stretches along the whole 6 kilometres of golden sandy beaches — the town has been saved from the high-rise buildings that blight so many other destinations due to the strict planning restrictions
