Puerto del Carmen is on the south eastern side of the island, 15 kilometres from the airport. The new town is spread along the coast with a very long promenade, white beaches, shops and bars. The old part of the town, where our apartment is situated, has a beautiful harbour, beaches and spectacular cliffs, all within walking distance. At night the restaurants around the harbour are very popular, with fresh locally caught fish on every menu. Lanzarote is well known for its volcanic, lunar type landscape, lava fields, caves, camels, palms and beaches. Some of the sights to see include the volcanic house of the famous Spanish artist and sculpture, Cesar Manrique and his magnificent cactus gardens with over 1,400 species, the National Park of Timanfaya where you can bus trip to the summit of the volcanoes. There is a Sunday market at Teguise in the centre of the island which is popular with locals and tourists alike.
