Old Town Harbour Old Town Harbour

Nestled on the southern coast and only a 10-minute drive from the airport, the Old Town Harbour has a lot more to offer than first meets the eye. Like many places in Lanzarote Puerto del Carmen was originally a small fishing village that boasts some excellent seafood restaurants. Thankfully, it has retained its traditional Canarian essence and avoided the tourist transformation.

If you’re a keen adventurer Puerto del Carmen offers the change to explore the bottom of the sea bed and swim with the sea life in a yellow submarine along by the old harbour. If you listen carefully when you come back up to the surface, you will be able to hear the well-known song ‘Yellow Submarine’ by The Beatles!
