Puerto del Carmen and Matagorda

For Lanzarote bars and restaurants, Puerto del Carmen certainly has everything you could ask from your holiday. 

The largest and busiest resort in Lanzarote – Puerto del Carmen,  has over 40 Irish pubs of its own, a good selection of Celtic bars and English pubs, and traditional Spanish bars, German bars to name but a few… plus a huge selection of places to eat with almost every kind of food you can think of.

It is here that the busiest parties go on until the early hours. With the party set having fixed their sights on the town – it can only go from strength to strength.

About 15 minutes drive from Arrecife airport, Puerto del Carmen boasts around 5km of broad, sandy beaches as well as a wide variety of places to eat and drink and it remains a popular destination for holidaymakers from far and wide. With a wide range of activities on offer for all, it is suitable for singles, couples, and for families.

Made up of a ‘new’ and ‘old’ town, Puerto del Carmen has no tall buildings and almost all of them are unpretentious. It’s the ideal holiday resort for sun worshippers, with the beautiful Playa Grande beach, And as for the party-reveler who loves wining, dining and dancing… there is a massive selection of bars & eateries, tavernas and discotheques.

Puerto del Carmen lays claim to being the most popular tourist destination on the island, and has a diversity that will suit most tastes. The Old Town has managed to retain its traditional Canarian atmosphere. Most nights you can see the locals playing boules in the Old Town Harbour, sample some of the finest seafood known to man, or simply enjoy a glass of the local wine as you gaze across the water.

The Old Town has more of a Spanish feel to it. With its sea facing restaurants all serving fresh fish and meat dishes – it is a hive of activity. Currently the harbour area is undergoing an overhaul which will enhance the great atmosphere already there.

The New Town (or “The Strip” as it’s more commonly known) is bustling with activity. Again, this has a wide range of bars and restaurants available, as well as discotheques for working off some of those excess calories you’ve picked up from your Lanzarote holiday.

The busiest of areas on the strip is agreed by most as being Centro Atlantico with a multitude of floors on which you can find a variety of bars, clubs, and showbars.

The Biosfera shopping centre is certainly worth a visit, with 4 floors of shops and bars. An impressive area which really comes to life when the sun sets. There’s even a kiddies’ play area to keep them occupied whilst you haggle with the shopkeepers for the latest bargains.

The other end of The Strip brings you to Los Pocillos, a thriving hub of bars, shops and restaurants. Situated right opposite Playa Los Pocillos – the bars here are full of bargains. Large beer for just €1.50 and cracking food deals await you here, as well as a bouncing night’s entertainment. From here, all along the seafront to Matagorda there are plenty of good restaurants, and fun bars.

Matagorda is more laid back than The Strip, but is certainly not shy about giving you a lively night out. With karaoke and live entertainment, there are many bars here all clambering for your attention. Just outside of the commercial centre in Matagorda, and towards Arrecife is a perfect spot for plane-spotters as the aircraft land close by… swooping in low over the beach bringing happy travellers to the Island.
