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.

No visit to pdc is complete without a visit to the harbour rat the old town, every time we visit we find something new, filled with great bars and restaurants and not forgetting the view! Even down to the bustling Friday market

Had a nice walk round one morning when it was cloudy, lovely harbour with lots of cats about. Walked up and had breakfast I think the place was called dolce vita? Excellent breakfast and cheap. Nice place to go when weather isn't good

Called on Friday which was market day. Not many stalls but still worth a look around. The boardwalk was nice along the harbour front. Worth a visit.

Nice enough harbour with lots of bars, restaurants. Some nice views of the cliffs. You can also get a boat several times per day to the beautiful harbour town of Puerto Calero. It cost €8 each way and is a very pleasant ride.

Headed to the harbour after or mid day arrival on Lanza. Filled our faces on beer, wine and Tapas before heading to our villa for a snooze!

Always take a walk around the harbour, lovely views and restaurants for a handy pit stop prior to carrying on to puerto Calero

There is a selection of restaurants along the harbour side which is nice to sit in and watch the sailing crafts come and go. You can get the waterbus from here to Peurto Calero.

but a good view of tiered apartments facing the harbour. The apartments were a pretty sight! Lots of cats lounge about and this can be the start of the walk to Puerto Calero.

There’s always a fisherman on the rocks over the wall just pop our head over and ask them mate, they’ll point you in the right direction:)
