The Lanzarote region
Puerto Del Carmen's Old Town was originally a small fishing village. It is a favourite place for tourists due to its breathtaking views from elevated positions looking over both the town and the harbour. Local bars and restaurants with great food and inexpensive prices are available within a stones throw from most properties in the Old Town. The area is a 10 minute walk away from the main bustling cosmopolitan resort and its vast beaches. No car is necessary to enjoy your holiday but should you decide to hire a car, most major tourist attractions are within easy reach from the apartment.
Puerto del Carmen hosts the Lanzarote Ironman event each May, the race starts with a swim at Playa Grande, then off around the island on bikes and ends with a marathon with laps from Playa Grande to Matagorda. There is a new golf course in the Puerto del Carmen area, situated above the resort on the road to Tías, which opened in late 2008.
For the children there is the wildlife park at Rancho Texas, in the evening there is a choice of line dancing or flamenco nights for both adults and children.
There are lots of individual shops along the strip and into the old town of Puerto del Carmen. If you fancy a wander around a shopping centre, head to the Biosfera, 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
If you fancy getting out of the resort but not hiring a car, head to Megafun at Costa Mar; they do a fabulous trek on quads across the island to Famara and back.
Puerto del Carmen
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.
If sun and sea are your thing, then the 6 kilometer stretch of golden beaches washed by the waters of the Atlantic should be enough to tempt you. All of the beaches fly the Blue Flag awarded by the EEC for cleanliness and lack of contamination. The surrounding waters are considered to be some of the most tranquil in the Canary Islands; they are excellent for swimming and other water sports.
Carnival which takes place at the end of February to the beginning of March attracts many visitors from all over Europe, joining the local residents in their celebrations.
The end of July signals the Fiesta de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, patron saint of Puerto del Carmen. Visitors again make the population swell as folklore performances, singing and dancing fill the night until the early hours of the morning. Specially decorated fishing boats setting out to sea, to pray for good catches in the coming year, signals the end of this particular fiesta.
There are well over 100 restaurants on the Avenida de Las Playas alone, with menus to suit all tastes and budgets from fast food, through to high class gourmet eating.
