Holiday Villas in the Resort of Puerto del Carmen

The holiday resort has now grown along the shoreline in one continuous 4 miles stretch, fronting the three golden sandy beaches. There is a promenade running the length of the town’s central beach, the Playa Grande. This is the main strip, and comes to life in the evenings with every kind of restaurant, bar and club you can imagine - and a few you can’t! To the west of Playa Grande is the Old Town, with its own beach, Playa Chica, which has a diving centre, and is good for swimming, scuba diving and snorkelling. If you head east you will come to the biggest of the three beaches, Playa Pocillos, which is much loved by windsurfers. The Old Town is the most interesting area for shopping with many small independent shops as well as the smart Biosfera Shopping Centre. Although the nightlife of the town is best suited to younger people there is plenty here to keep families entertained. There are various caves to explore, crazy golf and go-carting, bingo and a casino, water sports and golf as well as Rancho Texas Zoo. Children will be fascinated to discover what a volcano is like in the Timanfaya National Park in Tinajo.

Exploring Puerto del Carmen On Villa Holidays
Puerto del Carmen

Puerto del Carmen is the main tourist town on the island and keeps nearly a million holiday goers happy every year. It is just a half hour drive away from the island’s capital, Arrecife, where half the population of Lanzarote live. By way of contrast, this is a small working town that is not dependent on tourism for its living. Arrecife means 'reef' in Spanish, and the name of the town refers to the remarkable coastline, studded with reefs, islets and little natural harbours. The town has an attractive central sandy beach, and a long, inviting promenade. It is not a town of major historic importance, but there are a number of interesting places to see. For example, the Castillo de San José was built in the 18th century to fend off pirates but it is now a sleek, contemporary art museum and restaurant. The tallest building on Lanzarote is the Grand Hotel in Arrecife, and it is worth venturing up to the top floor restaurant for marvellous views of the city.

You can’t go very far in Lanzarote without becoming aware of the importance of the late César Manrique, artist and architect, who was born in Arrecife. His influence is everywhere on the island, and we have him to thank for the lack of high rise hotels and apartments. He was well ahead of his time, lobbying the planning authority to encourage sympathetic development of tourism - for example, using traditional colours when designing the exteriors of new buildings. His work continues with The César Manrique foundation, based at Manrique's former home built on top of a volcanic trail in Taro de Tahiche. This amazing building is open to the public and has an art-gallery of Manrique’s work and his private collection of work by other artists such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.

Charco de San Ginés comes as a lovely surprise when you have been looking around Arrecife. It is a man-made seawater lagoon right in the middle of town, still used by fishermen whose little boats bob on water clean enough to tempt the local children to swim. (El Charco means 'the puddle' in Spanish!) White-painted fishermen’s cottages cluster round the palm-lined promenade. There are lots of little shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from, frequented by locals as well as tourists, and there’s a children’s playground on one side of the lagoon. A tiny fort is connected to land by two little bridges. There is a market here every Saturday selling local food and crafts. The influence of César Manrique is to be found here as well - he remodelled the area making it the attractive place it is today.
