Puerto Del Carmen is one of the busiest resorts in Lanzarote and a popular destination choice for travellers of all ages. With great beaches, plenty of activities to enjoy and a vibrant night-life there is no chance of ever finding yourself without something to do during your break. One of the major selling points of the resort is the fact that it manages to combine the old and the new culture of the island in one picturesque melting pot. The modern hotels and facilities stand alongside the fascinating historical spots and traditional restaurants, a spectacular contrast that ensures that thousands of visitors head back to Puerto Del Carmen each year.
The contemporary side of Puerto Del Carmen starts on the beachfront at the renowned hotel 'Los Fariones'; from here visitors can stroll along 'The Strip' and enjoy the two mile stretch lined with shops, bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is simply electric here, with local craft markets and music playing to entice you into having a drink or a bite to eat. After enjoying your time on 'The Strip' it is time to experience some of the more traditional aspects of the resort. Just north of this modern area is the original, authentic part of town which still maintains its unspoiled nature. The old port is still bustling with fishing and pleasure cruise boats and is overlooked by plenty of restaurants and bars. Taking the time to savour the spectacular views, whilst enjoying a glass of local wine is one of the best things to do whilst enjoying your stay in this Lanzarote resort.
Families will appreciate the many child friendly attractions around the resort including a large water park and even submarine rides to explore the underwater world.
A trip out along the coastline on a catamaran is also recommended with many companies offering pleasure cruises. The Museum of Canarian Whales and Dolphins is another fantastic place to visit especially for nature lovers hoping to learn more about the wildlife around the area.
Those looking to explore further afield will appreciate a trip to the Timanfaya National Park, a fascinating place where visitors can explore the volcanic landscapes that make Lanzarote such a unique island. A visit to the capital city, Arrecife, is also recommended for those looking for a shopping trip or just the chance to experience another side of the island culture.
