At the foot of Lanzarote's spectacular volcanic mountain range lies Puerto del Carmen, where long stretches of golden sand are washed by tranquil Atlantic waters. A resort of contrasts, the old town retains the charm of its days as a fishing harbour, with traditional bars and restaurants offering sanctuary from the lively, modern resort. Along the beach, a vibrant tourist strip has emerged, offering an outstanding variety of international restaurants and bars, and an array of boutiques where you can find leather bargains and Lladró porcelain. In addition, the promenade, extending the length of the shore, is an ideal place to watch the sunset redden Lanzarote's dramatic rugged landscape.
