“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
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 »
