Close your eyes for a minute and imagine yourself in your favourite Lanzarote resort. The island has so much to offer so it’s difficult to pick only one place. I would like to tell you about our best-loved places that we always visit. Is your resort on the list? We would love to hear about your favourite places on the Island.
Puerto Del Carmen
It’s the most lively resort on the island with a large selection of restaurants, bars and shops so plenty of choice for every tourist. It’s located only 15 minutes taxi drive from the airport so it’s ideal. The town is divided into two parts: Old Town (The Harbour) and New Town. If you like lively bars, restaurants, shopping and lovely sea views the famous strip Avenida de las Playas in the New Town is the choice for you, if you prefer quieter surroundings the Old Town (The Harbour) area is well recommended with amazing restaurants and breathtaking views.Our favourite beach is Playa Chica in the Old Town which is brilliant for snorkelling and diving. We also love the main Playa Granda beach will lovely blue & orange sun parasols, you can see these on most Puerto Del Carmen photographs.
Another beautiful resort which is situated on the south of the island.
When staying in Puerto Del Carmen we always get the bus that takes approximately 30 minutes and costs only €2.75 one way.Check out here\ http://bit.ly/1Rwtg9T for bus stop locations and timetable. The transfer time from the airport by taxi is approximately 30 minutes and about €40.00. The famous Playa Flamingo beach (white sand beach) is our favourite place in this resort. You can also take a trip to Fuerteventura by ferry, it takes only 30 minutes so well worth a visit.
Another popular resort located near Puerto Del Carmen and the Airport. Matagorda is a quite new resort and a lot quieter than Puerto Del Carmen but still lovely and popular for all holidaymakers. It has been the most popular place for watching the planes landing on the island – it’s an unbavailable experience, would definetely recommend a trip to see it.
Located only few kilmoteres from Puerto Del Carmen with an easy access by taxi and bus. You can also enjoy a lovely walk from Puerto Del Carmen Old Town which takes about an hour (keep in mind that there is a lot of stairs during the walk). Another option is the water taxi from PDC Harbour which is only about €5.00 one way. It has a lovely marina with some nice restaurants at the waterfront. Puerto Calero is well known for a bit of luxury with nice boutiques and some lovely hotels that are popular for wedding venues.
