On the east coast of Lanzarote, sandwiched between the lively Puerto del Carmen and the laid-back Matagorda, Playa de los Pocillos offers a quiet, family-friendly resort with all of Lanzarote within reach. The wonderful beach and array of low-key amenities makes Playa de los Pocillos a safe choice for those wishing to avoid the bustle of Puerto del Carmen while still enjoying the beachside fun that this island is famous for.
By far the most common word you'll find associated with Puerto Calero is 'luxury'. Now boasting one of the most modern and impressive marinas in the world, Puerto Calero is Lanzarote's destination of choice for those who enjoy some of the finer things in life. You can expect some excellent restaurants and bars overlooking the marina, and if you decide to stay the night, its two hotels are among the best in Lanzarote.
Puerto Del Carmen
Puerto del Carmen, with good reason, is the main resort on the island of Lanzarote. If you're looking for a good old-fashioned British holiday with all the amenities and activities you could possibly want, then this busy, charming town will probably be at the top of your list.
If excellent food, watersports and clear blue lagoons are your thing, holidays to Lanzarote's Costa Teguise have it all. Situated on the south-eastern coast of Lanzarote, this town is literally made for holidaymakers – as it was purpose-built to accommodate tourists in the 1970s.
Matagorda, along with its neighbour and sibling Playa de los Pocillos, was born of the tourist boom enjoyed by Puerto del Carmen in the 1990s, but has since developed a character and charm all of its own. Matagorda has everything you're likely to need during the majority of your holidays to Lanzarote. Whether you're aiming for cheap trips or All Inclusive Lanzarote hotels, there's a place for you. And if it's just quiet, relaxing days and nights you're looking for, Matagorda is the place for you.
Translated literally as 'white beach', Playa Blanca is the southernmost resort for holidays to Lanzarote and the second most popular after Puerto del Carmen. Known for its beaches, harbour and its proximity to the best of Lanzarote's natural landscapes, this resort offers an enviable level of choice when it comes to accommodation and evenings out.
