Puerto Del Carmen is maybe one of the best-known resorts on the island, and is most definitely the longest established one. A lot of this reputation comes from the resort being able to offer everyone something, whether it is the famous beachside arcades, casinos, or just the outlandishly luxurious private villas the resort has to offer. Tucked nicely on the coast of southern part of the island, Puerto Del Carmen has also gained its popularity because it is one of the most central locations for setting up shop in order to spread out to explore all of the tourist and cultural touchstones Lanzarote has to offer ... Which is a lot.
Like a lot of places in Lanzarote, Puerto Del Carmen began its life as a small fishing village, but has since blossomed into so much more. However, the town's roots are still on prideful display down at the old harbor, where guests will find some of the most decadent seafood restaurants entire island has to offer. The resort has been blossoming for the past 20 years - its peach now clocks in at over 6 km of peer golden flaky sand - the town itself has kept a lot of its old-school soul intact thanks to planning restrictions by local government, sparing the beautiful skyline being plagued by high rise buildings like so many other tourist destinations on the island.
Thriving in the sun and the surf is easy to do any time of year thanks to the wonderful Mediterranean climate, which means that the 6 km stretch of beach can be all years to experience 12 months a year. And all of the beaches in Puerto Del Carmen have been rewarded with the Blue Flag from the EEC, which means they meet the highest standard for cleanliness and lack of contaminations. So, you have no worries as you sit back and soak in tranquil serenity of the Canary Islands, or partake in some swimming or other in water adventures.
If wading into the water up to your waist is not exactly the case you're looking to set for your vacation, never fear, Puerto Del Carmen is home to a few diving schools as well as windsurfing centers in order to feed into your wild side. The resort is also loaded with many bike shops if you'd like to rent a cycle and cruise down the beach promenade, soaking in all the sights.
Since Puerto Del Carmen is such an immensely popular tourist destination, you better believe that there are plenty of high-end shopping opportunities available to you. There are many tourist friendly shops lining the main street of Beach Avenue, or if you are looking for something a little fancier to take home from your beach vacation you can check out the upscale market in the Biofera shopping complex. Everything from local crafts to designer clothing is available for you.
If you time your vacation right, and visit Puerto Del Carmen from the end of February to the first few weeks in March, you'll be able to take in the local festival Carnival, which attracts visitors from all across Europe, as well as locals from every corner of the island to join up and celebrate.
