Puerto del Carmen holidays take you to a lively and very popular resort on the south east coast of Lanzarote. Originally a fishing village, it was one of the first resorts to be developed. Framed by barren hills, it spreads around a large bay. Its beach is edged by a busy promenade that extends to neighbouring Playa de los Pocillos, and is filled with restaurants, bars and shops. Although the coarse sandy beach slopes gently into the sea, you must remember that this is the ocean, and that waves can be heavy with strong currents. Take notice of the lifeguard's flags. Water sports include wind surfing, sailing, jet skiing, diving and banana boat rides. Lanzarote is a beautiful island with a rare landscape. Take an excursion to the Timanfaya National Park to see volcanic craters and lava formations, hot springs and jets of steam shooting up several metres from the ground. The caves in the north are another popular attraction. If you wish to explore the island, car hire is recommended.
Puerto del Carmen has wide range of hotels, apartments, villas and studios to accommodate most budgets. Whatever you choose, you'll find standards of comfort and service are high and you'll always receive a warm and friendly welcome. When hefty discounts are applied to the all-inclusive tariffs, they often cost less than you think, and offer good value. When you consider the cost of keeping a family supplied with food, snacks and drinks, it can be an attractive option. The choice of food in Puerto del Carmen is all-enbracing. There are so many restaurants, bars, pubs and fast foods, that whatever you fancy, you'll find a menu to satisfy your tastes. Even the most conservative of British palates can enjoy familiar food. Wines and beers are generally inexpensive. The resort has the liveliest nightlife on Lanzarote with its bars and discos pumping out music from dusk until dawn. There are of course many relaxed venues where you can spend the evening with family and friends. Puerto del Carmen has a vast number of shops which will satisfy even the most ardent of shoppers. If you enjoy a market atmospher, you'll love the Sunday market in the old town of Teguise. People come from all over the island to haggle over prices at its stalls, and in its tiny shops.
