Puerto del Carmen is
one of Lanzarote's most popular tourist spots
, thanks to its three lovely beaches, lively waterside promenade and old town charm.
The three beaches
provide three different atmospheres, so there is something to suit everyone, from windsurfers
at Playa Pocillos to divers
at the quieter, secluded Playa Chica in the old town.
The capital, Arrecife
, is a 30 minute drive away, where you can find restaurants, historic attractions such as the Castillo San Gabriel,
and the Museum of Contemporary Art
, housed in the 18th-century Castle of San José.
