Puerto del Carmen is said to be the liveliest tourist destination in Lanzarote. This resort is located only some 5 kilometers from the Airport, and it pertains to the municipality of Tias. Puerto del Carmen is linked to Arrecife and Costa Teguise by the direct bus line 2 and line 3, respectively, which is reassuring as far as tourists who want to visit all these places without too much difficulty are concerned.

Plenty of car rental companies can be spotted, on the other hand, in Puerto del Carmen, to the satisfaction of tourists who want to travel in the surroundings of Puerto del Carmen at their own pace. Bike rental is also available, which enhances the opportunity of both getting around and indulging in the mere biking.

However, cycling, as sports activity, is complemented by plenty other opportunities in this respect: Lanzarote Golf Resort, one of the few venues of this kind on the island, is located in Puerto del Carmen. Diving centers are also plentiful in Puerto del Carmen, just as fishing and sailing centers are.

There are several tourist opportunities which turn Puerto del Carmen into one of the most popular places frequented by tourists visiting Lanzarote. Puerto del Carmen could not have attained its reputation without featuring some of the finest beaches in Lanzarote. Playa Blanca (also referred to as Playa Grande, in order not be taken for the namesake resort in Yaiza) is notable in this respect.

Health and beauty care centers are also at hand in Puerto del Carmen for those who don’t want to leave such aspects behind while spending their vacation in Lanzarote. Shopping is also fairly rewarding in Puerto del Carmen, Biosfera Plaza Shopping, Centro Comercial Costa Mar, Centro Comercial Jameos and Centro Comercial Los Pocillos being the most representative in terms of shopping gratifications. Puerto del Carmen also excels in nightlife, being one of the most generous resorts in Lanzarote in this respect. The presence of the only casino in Lanzarote in Puerto del Carmen substantiates this assertion.

Rancho Texas Park is one of the main attractions in Puerto del Carmen. This is one of the few theme parks in the entire Lanzarote, which is why it should not be overlooked once in Puerto del Carmen.

There is one tourist information office in Puerto del Carmen, and it is located on the main thoroughfare crossing the resort, that is, Avenida de Las Playas. The presence of this office proves, it too, this resort is one of the top destinations in Lanzarote.
