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.

Playa Blanca

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 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.


The resort is located only minutes away from the airport. Based on my experience after visiting Matagorda several times I would say it’s one of the most relaxing resorts on the Island. It has a fantastic choice of hotels and holiday apartments and villas. Very good selection of restaurants and bars on the seafront. We absolutely love walking along the promenade and stop beside the airport to watch the planes landing on the Island. If you prefer spending your time in a quieter resort Matagorda is definetely a choice for you. 

Costa Teguise

Lovely family friendly resort located in the east coast of Lanzarote. Fantastic choice of All Inclusive hotels for a perfect family holiday. Very popular resort for water sports with a great selection of windsurfing schools. Playa de Las Cucharas is the most popular beach in the resort.

We would highly recommend to visit Lanzarote Aquarium in Costa Teguise, click here for more details: Acuario de Lanzarote.
