Like many places in Lanzarote, Puerto del Carmen was originally a small fishing village, and the old harbour is still a delightful place to visit, boasting some excellent bars, restaurants and excursions running out of the harbour.

The harbour has changed a lot since Iast visited 12 years ago. The boardwalk didn't exist and I loved it. Loved watching the fish and sitting on the seats provided watching the boats. The children's play area, restaurants, boiler and garden make the whole area...More

This was our first time staying in the old town and we spent a lot of time around the harbour. It is beautiful here in the evening as the sun is setting. surrounded by plenty of great bars and eateries.

Very pretty with a great choice of good quality restaurants. Nice atmosphere, worth a wander to find hidden bars and restaurants. You can walk to Puerto Calero from here. Relatively easy walk. Excellent place to stay. It feels like a real place, not just hotels.

Went to the old town harbour on market day (Friday). Well worth a visit to this beautiful spot, a walk round the market is a small bonus. Lots of restaurants all around the cliffside walk and lovely scenery.
