Holidays to Puerto Calero
Puerto Calero is a popular resort destination on the Canary Island of Lanzarote. It lies not far from the much larger Puerto del Carmen, but unlike its noisy neighbour, Puerto Calero makes a great destination for anyone hoping to get away from the crowds. It’s easy to escape on a holiday to Puerto Calero, as you enjoy miles upon miles of unspoiled natural beauty, from the imposing volcano, down to the golden beaches. In addition to that, the town itself boasts a wide selection of attractions, ranging from designer shops and golf courses, to fun-packed days out for the whole family.
Puerto Calero holidays
If you’re hoping to enjoy some of the local culture during your holiday to Puerto Calero, then you should begin with a trip down to the marina area; here you’ll find a rich selection of cafés, tapas bars and restaurants. It’s a great place to get a feel for Puerto Calero, or to try out any of the local specialities – the town is known for its seafood in particular. You’ll also be able to enjoy a good range of shops in the town centre, ranging from local produce and handicrafts, to designer outlets.
Other activities on offer around the marina include family-friendly rides on the ‘Yellow Submarine’, yacht and catamaran hire, and a scuba diving school. Novice divers can take advantage of lessons in diving, whereas those with some experience have the option of hiring out equipment, and exploring the ocean bed on their own, or as a part of a guided tour.
One of the more unique attractions on a holiday in Puerto Calero is the town’s fascinating Whale and Dolphin Museum. Here guests can admire complete whale and dolphin skeletons, as well as a range of reproduction models, photographs, biological exhibits and interactive displays. Another interesting visit is the Agricola Museum, which features displays on the traditional lifestyle and culture on Lanzarote. The beautiful coastline of Costa Teguise is also nearby and well worth a visit.
For lovers of the great outdoors, the Timanfaya National Park is a must-see. The almost Martian landscape shows the telltale marks of past volcanic activity, and covers around a quarter of the island’s surface… here you can admire the majestic ‘Montañas del Fuego’, or ‘Mountains of Fire’.
Then there’s the beaches, the area around Puerto Calero boasts miles of golden sand, lined by vast expanses of rugged coastal landscape. It’s the perfect place for swimming, sunbathing, or even hiking into the dunes.
