Matagorda is a pleasantly peaceful resort on the south-east coast of Lanzarote, north of Puerto Del Carmen. It benefits from a coarse sandy beach lapped by shallow waters. It is a favourite resort with families and couples, as well as those who wish to relax by day but also be close to neighbouring lively nightlife. This part of the island has a fairly constant breeze and because of this, it is also popular with surfers and sailors. A palm-lined promenade runs from the resort to Puerto Del Carmen. Filled with bars, cafes and shops, refreshments are always close at hand. Lanzarote is a lovely island and if you want to explore its natural beauty, car hire is recommended. If you only take one excursion, visit the Timanfaya National Park with its lunar-like landscape, a landscape like nowhere else on earth.
Matagorda, in common with most of the island's resorts, has hotels, apartments and villas providing good quality accommodation and attentive service. Don't disregard the all-inclusive option assuming it is too expensive, as it may be cheaper than you'd imagine. When discounts are applied, they can offer great value. As almost a suburb of Puerto del Carmen, there seems an almost endless supply of restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes. The variety of menu is extensive and cater for even the most conservative of British palates. You can always find familiar food including a full English breakfast, a Sunday roast or a Friday night curry. If you are new to Spanish cuisine, order tapas and you'll receive a variety of dishes that are ideal for tasting. Matagorda nightlife is fairly relaxed reflecting the resort's popularity with families and couples. Those seeking a party atmosphere can pop along the promenade to the lively bars, clubs and discos of Puerto del Carmen. Shopping in the resort is fairly limited but again, many opportunities for buying gifts and souvenirs are available at the other end of the promenade. The Sunday market in Teguise is a favourite with holidaymakers from all over the island.
Matagorda holidays can be taken at any time of year as winters are pleasantly mild and the summers are hot. You'll very rarely find extremes of temperature in the Canary Islands. Several low cost airlines fly to Lanzarote Arrecife from regional airports. You can check on the Cheeky Trip website to see if there is a direct service from your own local airport. Since the resort is close to the airport, transfers are very short.
