Puerto Del Carmen – The nightlife capital of Lanzarote
Warm carefree nights are to be expected of island life. But on Lanzarote – the easternmost of the subtropical Canary Islands – nights in the popular resort of Puerto Del Carmen raise the bar to a whole new level when it comes to island fun.
The place to be
Puerto Del Carmen’s main avenue, the Avenida de las Playas, is seven kilometres of closely packed beach-front restaurants, bars, clubs and shopping.
As the magnet for Lanzorote’s lively tourist scene, the Avenida de las Playas caters to pretty much everyone’s idea of a great night out. Everyone seems to spend time here from Spanish families on holiday, to foreigners enjoying a sunny break. You might even spot Lanzarote’s locals out and about, enjoying the refreshing evening air.
When it comes to food and drink, enjoy the generous array of bars and restaurants. From tapas bars to sports bars, from local specialities to international favourites—including English, Italian and Japanese dishes, you have it all!
The summers are long in Puerto Del Carmen so there’s many a balmy night to enjoy cheap beers with mates, indulge in seafood feasts, taste local wines or dance the night away – and even sneak in a spot of shopping.
Best for: fun for everyone
Party until dawn
Late-night DJs and live music keep the fun going in Puerto Del Carmen’s clubs until the early hours.
The party mood here is infectious making it difficult to resist the dance floor. You’ll be able to pick your groove – from clubbing classics to Latin rhythms, disco and soul.
Alternatively, dress to be seen for a girls’ night out over cocktails in Puerto Del Carmen’s classiest bars, or kick back at a pub over cold beers and billiards.
Best for: lazy days and crazy nights
Slip away from buzzing Avenida de las Playas for a night with a difference in Puerto Del Carmen’s serene old town.
The choices in dining and nightlife may be fewer in this picturesque spot, but the old town more than compensates in atmosphere. Away from the biggest crowds, you’ll be able to pick a prime seat in a restaurant or bar with spectacular views across the harbour and beyond.
Best for: honeymoons, dates and special occasions
