Puerto Calero – South Coast of Lanzarote
You will find on your holiday to Puerto Calero that the resort is very new so you can expect good facilities on offer. Tourism in the area is directed towards couples and families who are looking for a relaxing time, and they will find a calm atmosphere in this small coastal town.
The transfer time from Lanzarote Airport is a swift 20 minutes, which gives you a quick chance to see the mountainous area on your right hand side as you make your way to Puerto Calero. The volcanic origin of the island has shaped and scarred the landscape in places; this is something you will come to find.
This secluded resort offers some expensive and top class accommodations, with most hotels rated 4 to 5 star. Luxury villas are another form of accommodation and they offer things like private swimming pools, they do, however, come at a price.
Puerto Calero – Fun & Activities
With the area being fairly small and quiet there isn’t a vibrant lifestyle around the town, such is the family and couples tourism mindset of the town. You will, however, find some water sports available like windsurfing, going on a catamaran, snorkelling, scuba diving and even a submarine trip. If you fancy just relaxing on a beach, you will need to make the short journey over to Puerto Del Carmen where there is a large beach with plenty of room for everyone.
The island is full of many great excursions such as the Aqua Park in Costa Teguise and the Rancho Texas Park in Puerto Del Carmen. The most popular excursion is a trip to Timanfaya National Park where you can be amazed by the shapes dried larva has taken on the Earth’s surface, as well as trips into tunnels made by the magma during the last volcanic eruption centuries ago. You can also enjoy camel rides at the national park.
The resort of Puerto Calero is quite upmarket and so you will find quite a few boutiques and souvenir shops where you can purchase items for yourself such as jewellery and clothes, as well as a few local crafts as presents for friends and family back home.
Puerto Calero – Food & Nightlife
Once again the upmarket standard of the resort provides a high quality service, but this time it’s when it comes to the cuisine. You will find Spanish, Italian, English, Thai and Chinese restaurants available which are collectively very popular as well as fairly reasonably priced.
There are a few bars around Puerto Calero which are available and many couples make nightly visits. In the bars you can enjoy good music and a very nice atmosphere to have good conversation to end the day with.
