Puerto del Carmen

Lanzarote is one of the Canary Islands most popular destinations and Puerto del Carmen was one of the first fishing villages to be developed. Located on the south eastern shores of the island with a backdrop of barren hills, it spreads from the harbour along the coastline. It has a coarse sandy beach edged by a promenade which extends to the neighbouring resort of Playa de los Pocillos. The promenade has many bars, restuarants and shops so you are never far from refreshments. Cheap Puerto del Carmen holidays have wide appeal with families, couples and young singles all enjoying their break in the sun. A variety of water sports are available from the beach where conditions are perfect for sailing and wind surfing.
