|While not nearly as energetic as Tenerife or some of the Balearic Islands, there are still plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants in Lanzarote to keep most people happy.
Early evening is a time for wining and dining at any of the island’s fabulous bars, cafes or restaurants. But the bar activities don’t really start to kick in quite a bit later in the evening – so be sure to take it easy! Lanzarote’s evening entertainment choices are as diverse as could be, so you will be sure to find something to please you. And the good thing is – the entertainment is usually free.
Live music, stand-up comedy, clubs, sports bars and family venues abound here – you’re sure to find something to while away the hours, whilst keeping everyone happy.

Puerto del Carmen and Matagorda
The busiest bars and clubs in Lanzarote are found at the ‘Avenida de Las Playas’ in Puerto del Carmen. However there are bars and discos in all of the main resorts. Puerto del Carmen has something for everyone with its gorgeous restaurants in the picturesque Old Town, through to its throbbing centre on The Strip (including Centro Atlantico), right up to the gentler Matagorda close to Arrecife airport
Just along the coast from Puerto del Carmen is Puerto Calero. This luxury Marina resort more than makes up for in quality what it lacks in size. There are 2 large hotels in the resort, plus a number of private villas and apartments. Along the promendade are a number of bars and restaurants to suit most tastes.
Arrecife and Playa Honda
Arrecife the capital is where you can sample more of the Spanish way of life than the other three resorts. With its multitude of tapas bars, restaurants, and regular community events… Arrecife is where all serious Spanish partygoers head to.
Just along the coast is Playa Honda. Predominantly residential – but chock full of great places to eat.
Costa Teguise is the oldest and most established resort, and has beautiful beaches, as well as perfect conditions for windsurfers. It also has a very wide selection of places to eat and drink – and is easily accessible from the airport. Costa Teguise is a true family resort with friendly venues and entertainment for everyone.
Playa Blanca is the newest resort on the Island, and is still growing. With its picturesque seafront, and stunning Rubicon Marina, Playa Blanca is a gentle and civilized town – perfect for families and couples. Don’t miss the Papagayo Beaches, considered amongst the best in Spain.
El Golfo is just a 20 minute drive from Playa Blanca, and boasts some of the best fish restaurants in the Canary Islands. Freshest ingredients, and picturesque surroundings – a must for anyone on holiday in Lanzarote.
Macher and Tías
Macher and Tías are slightly inland from Puerto del Carmen, and run pretty much along its length. These are rural areas, and more in keeping with residential Lanzarote than the larger tourist areas.
General Lanzarote Information
Timanfaya is probably the best well known of all visitor attractions, with trips up through the volcanoes and views across the Island . There is also a demonstration of the one volcano that is a little more than dormant. Watch as they pour a cup of water down into the hole & a jet of steam shoots up into the air. You can sample food cooked over the heat as a fitting end to this breathtaking trip.
