“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 »

The Cabildo of Lanzarote have added three archaeological routes to the Red de Senderos on the island.
Tourists and residents are encouraged to discover these three new routes which include the archaeological heritage sites of Los Pozos de San Marcial, Zonzamas & Montaña Blanca. The island council intend to co-ordinate visits from the education centres so that the younger generation can learn about the historical and cultural heritage of Lanzarote.
The Governing Council have approved plans to erect information panels on Montaña Blanca in Tías, explaining the traditional agricultural methods, our historic way of conveying water, aspects of the relief and the formation of the island, as well as the manifestations of the aboriginal population of Lanzarote, known as Los Majos.
The work for this footpath includes the construction of a small bridge at the start of the route next to read more »
Where can I print my boarding pass in Lanzarote? Is just one of the many questions we get asked on a daily basis, so we thought we’d publish details of the places that we are aware of, who offer this printing service in one of the holiday resorts on the island.
We’ve found a selection of local bars and book shops who are more than happy to print off boarding cards / passes, if you buy a drink in return, or pay a small fee to cover the cost of printing.
