Lanzarote’s major holiday resort on the south coast, Puerto del Carmen, is blessed with three fabulous sandy beaches. The most popular are the yellow sand beaches of Playa Grande (also known as Playa Blanca like the southern tourist resort) and Playa de los Pocillos, both over 0.6 miles (one kilometre) long.
Overlooking the beachfront here is the VIK Hotel San Antonio, which comes recommended by Spain-Lanzarote as being one of the finest 4-star places to stay in the south of the island. Boasting outstanding services in a great location, check out the unbeatable deals on offer.
At the eastern end of the town is Playa de Matagorda, another attractive, unspoiled beach.
Puerto del Carmen’s beaches are family-friendly and generally safe for swimming. They offer a wide range of water sports and leisure facilities, good water quality and have all the necessary facilities for an enjoyable, fun-filled day!
All along the beaches runs the 4 mile (6 kilometre) long Avenida de las Playas, a promenade, lined with restaurants, bars and cafés, ice cream parlours, amusement arcades and shops to round off your beach day with more fun things to do when the sun goes down! After midnight, the party atmosphere gets started in nightclubs and discos that can be found in various shopping centres in the area.
