For nocturnal partygoers, the news is good – Puerto del Carmen is home to some of the biggest and best bars and clubs in Lanzarote. It has a nightlife scene that appeals to a wide range of visitors, with karaoke, live music, sports, dancing and wine tasting. The Old Town has more rustic, charming seafront venues, ideal for enjoying some traditional Spanish live music over tapas and drinks. If you're looking for something a little livelier, head to the New Town to find clubs and bars along the Avenida de las Playas - known affectionately as The Strip - that are open until late.
