Whether you’re a family, couple or group looking for some fun in the sun, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in lively Puerto del Carmen. Kick back on one of the three Blue Flag beaches or stroll along the promenade that links Playa Grande, Playa Chica and Playa Pocillos, where water sports fans can try their hand at windsurfing, kitesurfing or jet skiing. For the night owls amongst your group, there are tons of nightlife options from traditional tapas bars to thumping nightclubs. Whether you've treated yourself to an All Inclusive break or you've found a cheap winter sun bargain, beach holidays in Puerto del Carman offer something for every kind of traveller. 

Take your pick from three Blue Flag awarded beaches. Playa Grande is the most popular stretch of sand in the centre of the resort, and you can head here to spend the day relaxing on a lounger or swim in the calm waters. Playa Chica is a secluded spot in the old town, which has a dive centre for snorkelling and scuba diving. Playa Pocillos attracts windsurfers and kite surfers from beginners to professionals.

Head to the nearby Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park where you can spot animals including white tigers, crocodiles and buffalo. There’re gardens, waterfalls and a fun waterpark with slides, pools and water games. For older kids there's a go karting track in Puerto del Carmen or an aquarium home to turtles, sharks and tropical fish further up the coast in Costa Teguise.

Head to Playa Pocillos to try your hand at wind or kite surfing. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never tried these activities before, as the calm waves and Atlantic breeze combine to make this a top spot for beginners and pros alike. Elsewhere in Puerto del Carmen, there are tons of water sports centres that offer parasailing, jet skiing, banana boat rides and pedalo rental.
