Which Lanzarote Resort Should I Stay In?

“I am coming to Lanzarote for the first time – which resort should I stay in?”

This is a question I am asked a lot, each of the three resorts in Lanzarote are very different from each other. It’s hard to know where to start as all the resorts are loved by the full range of visitors from teenagers, families, couples, sports enthusiasts and pensioners.

Puerto del Carmen

This book is a great guide to Puerto del Carmen: The Camel Guide to Puerto del Carmen and Tias

Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote’s original resort and closest to Arrecife Airport. What started out life as a small fishing village called La Tiñosa now stretches for 6km along the coast with natural golden sandy beaches.

Puerto del Carmen is probably best known for it’s lively nightlife, just ask for Centro Atlantico which is situated on the main avenida opposite Playa Grande for a plethora of pubs, nightclubs, disco pubs etc.  Don’t let this put you off though, there is much more to this resort than dancing the night away.

You will always find sports enthusiasts swimming, running or cycling along “The Strip”  read more »

Submarine Safaris in Lanzarote

There aren’t many places in the world where the public can dive to 30m in a submarine, Lanzarote is one of them.

Submarine Safaris in LanzaroteYellow submarine in Lanzarote

The aptly coloured yellow submarine called Sub Fun Tres operates out of the marina at Puerto Calero. This submarine can accommodate up to 44 passengers per dive, it’s deceptively spacious inside, with two stool style seats to each porthole there’s plenty of viewing space for everyone. Below the porthole there is a monitor which shows a camera view from the submarine when above surface and switches to a monitor with interesting information such as the depth and water temperature when diving.

Inside the subPassengers onboard

The excursion with Submarine Safaris includes free bus transfers from the holiday resorts to the Puerto Calero marina, here  the passengers are directed to the large double fronted office of Submarine Safaris with a cafe, shop and cinema area for the safety briefing. Children are encouraged to enter in the colouring competition and The Big Sea Life Quiz where they have to match the species to the name.
