What are holidays in Puerto del Carmen all about? Most people tend to spend their time here flopping on the beach during the day. And who could blame them? Offering up a golden sandy sweep that runs virtually unbroken for about 6km, this place was made for beach holidays. Cue plenty of long lazy days in the sun. As night falls, Puerto del Carmen erupts into a riot of neon as its restaurants, disco-bars and nightclubs come to life. No wonder this is Lanzarote's biggest and liveliest holiday resort.
So, a holiday in Puerto del Carmen will certainly hit the mark if you're looking for a cheap family getaway - in fact this is where you'll find the Thomson favourites the Cinco Plazas Apartments and the Lanzaplaya Apartments, both great quality self-catering properties with kids' clubs. But there's another side to this place if you're after something a little bit different, too…
The old town's harbour stands in total contrast to the main resort strip. Think enticing little tapas bars. Waterside fish restaurants. And narrow winding backstreets. What's more, not far away there's a very chic shopping mall called the Biosphere that's jammed packed with smart boutiques. If this kind of thing sounds more like your cup of tea and you've got a luxury holiday in Puerto del Carmen in mind, check out the Villas Alondras – it's really rather special.
Whether you're after self-catering breaks, something luxurious or last minute holidays to Puerto del Carmen, this resort offers up something for everyone. Oh, and here's a hot tip. If you want to see an authentic Spanish fiesta, come here around February to see the eye-popping carnival.
