Puerto del Carmen
Puerto Del Carmen is the most popular, busiest and well known resort on the island. Located on the south east side of the island and only a 15 minute (approximate) transfer from Arrecife airport. The resort boasts over 6km of beach, a full range of services and entertainment centres. The majority of which can be found along the Las Playas Avenue. Sunway offer both hotel and self catering accommodations in Puerto Del Carmen, ranging from 2* up to 4*+ so something to suit all tastes and budgets. The main beach in Puerto Del Carmen is Playa Grande, although sometimes known as the Fariones beach too. A long gently shelving sandy beach facing the busy resort. There are several beaches in the area running from the airport right through the old town of Puerto Del Carmen. Water sports are very popular and you’ll find a variety to choose from. Las Playas Avenue is home to a host of restaurants, cafes, bars, recreational centres, shopping centres, boutiques, pubs, discos and supermarkets. It is considered the liveliest nightlife spot on the island although still family friendly and a far cry from the hectic nightlife of other Spanish islands. There are plenty of excursion opportunties to choose from if you are based in Puerto Del Carmen including half or full day trips of the island, glass bottom boats and the Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park (animal park with a swimming pool & water game area) which is located just outside of Puerto del Carmen. Rancho Texas Park also hosts a fun packed Wild West themed night with bbq and drinks and lots more family fun. There is a distinct difference between the new town and the old town. The old town has quaint picturesque streets with an active harbour and is home to some particularly good restaurants including local Canarian and seafood amongst others. Built into a hill you will find some of the streets are inclined but for the most part the resort is on the flat making it very easy to get around. Puerto del Carmen Transfer Transfer from Arrecife airport approx. 15 mins.
