This is how holiday rental owners described Puerto del Carmen
show more The boom began in the 60’s when the Hotel Fariones and the Hotel San Antonio were built, which would mark the future of the area. It was named in honour of the Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of fishermen. The Day of El Carmen’s festivities involve carrying the Virgin on board a ship and sailing a short route along the coast of Lanzarote.
Puerto del Carmen’s success is largely owed to the more than 6 km of beaches that line its coast, its calm and peaceful waters and its rewarding natural surroundings. Running parallel to the coast is the Avenida de las Playas, a broad promenade that combines all kinds of tourist services on the one hand, such as shops, businesses, cafés, restaurants and leisure arcades, and miles of peaceful beaches on the other.

The whole year spring
Lanzarote | When you spend a vacation on the Canary Islands you are actually on holiday in Spain – from a geographical point you are actually more in Africa. After all the seven inhabited islands and several uninhabited ones are situated far away from the Spanish mainland and only around one hundred kilometres away off the coast of Morocco in the midst of the Atlantic. Thanks to this very special location the Canary Islands have their unique climate that guarantees pleasant temperatures throughout the year. During the summer the trade wind and the Azore high pressure ensure it does not get too hot whilst in the winter the close proximity to the equator and tropics provides for spring like temperatures. So there are always ideal conditions for a great beach and recreational vacation on the Canary Islands. You only have to make the difficult decision which island you are going to choose: atraveo offers you on Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma a wide selection of more than 1,600 holiday apartments and houses. All islands impress with their volcanic origin and unique nature, offer splendid beaches, interesting towns and a good infrastructure each with an own airport and everyone has its own particular charm. Especially the small towns and villages are a good choice for a relaxing family vacation. Equally there is a lot of fun and entertainment on offer. How about for example an apartment in the lively Maspalomas on Gran Canaria or the colourful Puerto del Carmen on Lanzarote? When spending a vacation on the Canaries you should also plan in a couple of daytrips towards the inner part of the islands. The volcanic origin of the islands has created an impressive natural spectacle which is worth discovering. Particularly the steep towering volcanic massive on Gran Canaria and Tenerife or the volcanic active areas on Lanzarote should be high on your vacation agenda.
