What to Do in Puerto del Carmen during your holidays in Lanzarote
Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote’s most important tourist centre. It is an ideal place for spending your holiday as a family, as a couple, with friends or, why not, solo.
During the day, you can enjoy the sun and peacefulness on its beaches. Pocillos Beach is more than 1 km long and is the busiest, perfect for spending long hours on the beach and taking walks. Chica Beach, although small, is ideal for swimming since it is protected from the waves and the wind by numerous lava rocks. In addition, this beach is very well-known by divers who visit the famous caves of Veril de la Tiñosa in its depths.
Also during the day, you can go shopping at the numerous local stores, especially at the Biosphere Shopping Centre, where there are some big name-brand companies.
The night life centres around its restaurants, bars, cafés, pubs and nightclubs.
