    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.

    Great beach for children, so easy to keep an eye on them. Never overcrowded. Lots of parking and ideal for swimming and snorkeling

    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.

    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!

    Has the usual outlets you would expect. Always worth a visit. Very clean environment. Located on the top of the hill, leading to the old town. Some food shops available.

    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.

    We walked passed a few times as the tables are on the street. However once you sit down you forget where you are sitting, the view is f the beach is great. The drinks offer from 1 till 5 are a bonus.

    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.

    Husband and I came here since it was close to our hotel to try it out. We came around 4pm and it was not crowded at all. We saw it crowded earlier in the day.

    They have mini golf, a full bar, food, air hockey, ping pong, 2 pool tables, and some small rides for smaller kids.

    We had a lot of fun! Everyone who worked there was very friendly. We were asked if we wanted a drink to golf with so I took a wine. The courses were all pretty challenging/different. After we played mini golf we played a few rounds of pool for a euro each. We had a lot of fun! We even went back the next day to play more pool before dinner.

    Highly recommend stopping by! Also love they have a book shelf of used books and any profits go to charity, also if you are not a customer and use the bathroom the 50 cents goes to charity.
