What travellers are saying
- Great day out and the bonus of small but does the job water park which cooled us down Like most attractions it’s lots of walking but worth it the shows were very good the birds of pray was are favourite .Written February 5, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Lovely walk on a not too hot day. Heeded the advice of others and wore trainers which was helpful on some parts of the walk. Starts out on a paved path but then becomes a track.
Mainly flat but uphill start and one section where there is a flight of steps down into a small ravine and a slope up the other side.
Took just under an hour from the big steps at the start, welcome stop in Puerto Calero for lunch afterwards.Written January 29, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Just nice for a stroll. Local supermarket and pharmacy very good. Also loved the drums practise on the beach Monday and Wednesday night's.Written February 4, 2023
- It was lovely walking around the harbour and watching the boats and birds. There is a good view of the coastline too. We took lots of photographs.Written January 24, 2023
- I want to give this beach 5/5 because it’s a lovely beach, beautifully clean and well kept, however the beach vendors are the worst I have ever encountered, in fact I can’t think of anywhere else I’ve been in the world where I’ve found them to be such a problem. They constantly shout (and I mean all day) as they walk up and down the beach selling drinks, it doesn’t stop, there’s just no need, it’s a beach not a market place. The ladies offering massages also need to take NO for an answer the first time around but again there’re hovering around and coming back every 30 minutes!Written January 26, 2023
- Good shoping centre. Not too big but it has everything you need. Shops from Zara to Pull and bear and Bershka. And there is a fun centre with good mini golf and 6d cinema at the top floor.Written February 2, 2023
- Very small casino,not much variety.ok for a night out,drinks reasonable with smoking area.would do better if they had more tables the one we were on was very crowdedWritten January 23, 2020
- Iron Man of Lanzarote is a statue located in Puerto del Carmen, a tourist town in the coast of Lanzarote. This statue remember the very known competition, which is organized several times in Lanzarote. You can see it, if you walk follow the main promenade in the town. Ok.

- On the footpath between Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero, after about 1.5 km, this section called Barranco del Quiquere cliff is about 800 m long and offers secluded bays, sunbathing areas and hidden caves. It is only advisable to go here during low tide.
The Barranco del Quiquere area is also particularly popular with naturists.
Like most areas on the south-east coast, the Barranco del Quiquere usually has only a few waves.
From the top of the cliffs, a staircase and to the north and south other, more risky climbing passages are leading down to the water, where you can find and choose your quiet and more or less hidden spot for your stay.
Entering the water partly is not very easy and the wearing of bathing shoes is rather recommended because of the occasional sea urchins.
To get to the Barranco del Quiquere by car, turn off the road between the villages of Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero after about 1.5 km on the unpaved road towards the sea. ( keep straight towards sea intil you reach carpark). From there you will see a path that takes you down to the pedestrian trail that connects Puerto del Carmen with Puerto del Calero and a sign indicating you arrived at Barranco del QuiQuere. You can either walk around towards the little cove and head left where you will find some nice spots to swim at low tide or head up the stairs (go left towards Puerto del Carmen) untill you find a steep set of stairs that takes you down to some great swimming and sunbathing areas.
No sunbeds or umbrellas, no toilets, no trash bins and also no first aid station, only crystal clear water, pure nature and often also hardly other visitors awaits you there.Written October 28, 2021
- Had a couple of very nice fresh salad lunches while we were here
Other diners seemed happy too
Friendly and efficient serviceWritten February 4, 2023
- If you enjoy cocktails, this place is well worth a visit.
They may be slightly more expensive than other bars, only maginally so, but you can taste the difference.
The Cosmopolitans and Moscow Mule, in particular, were delicious.Written January 31, 2023
- Mirador Playq Grande is a lookout located in the main promenade of Puerto del Carmen, a coastal town in Lanzarote. From here you can see nice views of Playa Grande (Big Beach), one of the beaches of the town. I came here at night and I could see the touristic atmosphere with a lot of bars and restaurants. Typical tourist place.

- Just back from watching Bullet Train in Starlight open air roof top cinema. Fantastic location, excellent service staff, very attentive, good food and drinks. A 5 star night on a sofa. Brilliant.Written February 6, 2023
- This is a very popular beach opposite the SPAR at the start of the Puerto Del Carmen strip.
The beach has golden sand and rocky sides on the left and right. The sea is great for snorkelling and swimming in. The shelter from the wind helps with visibility and there is a lack of seaweed/debris. I have seen some noticeable aquatic life here including angel sharks and cuttle fish.Written September 19, 2022
