Puerto del Carmen boasts the island’s biggest beach, a 6km wonder that runs the length of the town. Wow. You’re sure to find a spot on the sun-soaked sand, or pull up a pew in one of the bars and restaurants lining the seaside promenade instead.
Feast in the Old Town
Take a seat in one of authentic seafood restaurants in the Old Town, a few minutes’ walk from the strip. It’s the ideal spot to watch the sun set over the Los Ajaches Mountains. The main streets have every appetite in mind, even serving Mexican and Japanese cuisine.
Timanfaya National Park is about 30 minutes’ drive away. Once you’re there, hop on a bus tour along the crater’s edges and stare straight down into the volcanoes. There’s a restaurant up there, too – the must-try special has to be the chicken grilled using heat rising from beneath the ground.
