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 »

Jellyfish Warning 2014

It’s official, the dreaded jellyfish are back for the first time this year. We’ve received a Jellyfish Campaign notice from the Consorcio de Seguridad y Emergencias de Lanzarote with some general advice and preventive recommendations about how to avoid and deal with jellyfish stings.

Jellyfish Campaign

The notice was issued on the 16th April, just in time for the Easter bank holiday weekend, when jellyfish warnings were being posted on the affected beaches of Lanzarote.

Beach goers are asked to be vigilant and take notice of flags or warning notices placed by the beach lifeguards to advise users that “medusas” have been found to be present in the water that day.

The following advice has been issued by Dirección General de Sostenibilidad de la Costa y del Mar del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Medio Rural y Marino (MAMR) of what to do if stung by a jellyfish.

Treatment of jellyfish stings

* Do not scratch or rub the affected area

* Wash the area with sea water, never with sweet water

* Remove any debris from the jellyfish with tweezers

* Apply cold water for 15 minutes to reduce the pain, if using ice avoid direct contact with the skin, place the cubes in a plastic bag first

* Do not apply ammonia, vinegar or urine  read more »
