You certainly won't be short for things to do on your holiday to Puerto del Carmen. It's Lanzarote's largest resort and there are plenty of activities, including watersports and windsurfing to get involved in. You can also go snorkelling off the coast for really unique experience! With tempting temperatures of up to 28°C in the summer, a holiday in Puerto del Carmen would be incomplete without a daily trip to the beach. You can work on your tan, or take a cooling dip in the crystal-clear water before enjoying a bite to eat in a local cafe. Puerto del Carmen is also ideal for a winter-sun getaway, with temperatures of 19-21°C even in the later months.
You can have a family-friendly day at Rancho Texas, a Wild West-themed park and zoo, a five minutes from the main resort. Or, unleash your inner shopaholic and visit the Biosfera shopping centre for a little retail therapy. Soak up the Canarian culture and visit the laid-back Old Town, where you'll find the magnificent harbour. It's the perfect spot to grab a traditional meal of seafood or tapas. Elsewhere in Puerto del Carmen, you'll be able to experience a wide variety of different foods including Italian, Indian, Spanish, English, and Chinese cuisine, so whatever your tastes - you definitely won't go hungry!
In addition to picturesque views and year-round sunshine, another main attraction of Puerto del Carmen is the thrilling nightlife, ready for any party animal to explore! There's a fantastic selection of bustling bars and clubs to dance the night away in. If you're really keen to channel your inner diva, why not stop at one of the karaoke bars and show off your talents? The nightlife is what makes Puerto del Carmen more lively than some other Lanzarote resorts, such as Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca, where the evenings are more low-key and family friendly.
