Luxury Puerto del Carmen Holidays

A trio of beaches

Puerto del Carmen

Down in southern Lanzarote, against the backdrop of a volcanic mountain range, is the colourful Puerto del Carmen. A trio of beaches means there’s more than enough sand to go around.

The boisterous Playa Grande is packed with beachfront restaurants, shops and facilities, while laid-back El Barranquillo is a quieter spot for catching rays. Puerto del Carmen is also a popular windsurfing spot, with Los Pocillos beach’s exposed shore catching the best waves around. Linking them, an upbeat seafront promenade is the best place around to drink, dine and, if you fancy, dance. There’s a real buzz after dark, with a string of beachfront bars gazing out across sea.

For something a little more laid-back, you’ve got Puerto del Carmen’s charming old town, with a handful of traditional tapas bars lining its narrow streets.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
