Puerto del Carmen boasts the island’s biggest beach – a 6km wonder that runs the length of the town. You can bag a spot on the sand and lay down your towel or hire a lounger for the day and laze in luxury. When it’s time to cool off, why not pull up a pew in one of the bars and restaurants that line the promenade?
Feast in the Old Town
Take a seat in one of the authentic seafood restaurants in the Old Town, just 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, serving everything from local Spanish dishes to Mexican and even 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.
