Puerto del Carmen - Lanzarote Travel Guide
Chill out, catch a breeze, party on or shop for England. Where are you?
•What's Lanzarote like? If you haven't visited Lanzarote before, all you probably know is that it has an amazing volcanic landscape similar to that of the surface of the moon. Or in the words of one traveller, it's like something out of early Dr Who.
•That is all true, but Lanzarote is also an island that has avoided the ravages of high rise development. So you'll find low rise white washed buildings and hotels with colourful shutters, wide tree lined traffic free promenades, traditional and modern restaurants and bars, lava flow formations, farms, vineyards and the amazing fire mountain, Timanfaya. Plus the island is peppered with the wacky work of Cesar Manrique, a contemporary of Picasso's.
