One of the most beautiful marinas in Lanzarote is Puerto Calero, near Puerto del Carmen, heading south. With its hotels, villas, and a great gastronomic and leisure maritime offer. Arriving is very easy, either by car, bus or the most original option if we want to spend a totally different day: in Waterbus from Puerto del Carmen.
Upon arrival we have the feeling that although it is a tourist site the atmosphere is different. More relaxed and quiet than in other tourist spots of the island. Here we can walk along the pier, next to the sea and the pontoons, to the end of the port while admiring the different boats that dock here, something that I have always liked.
At the end of the pontoons there is a reserved part for superyachts and large sailboats, it is impressive to see some of the yachts that pass through this port and it costs nothing to daydream about having a day one and traveling the world.
Through the promenade of the dock looking towards the boats there is a great gastronomic offer of the most varied and it is inevitable to be attracted by the smell of the food that comes out of the kitchens; from restaurants with Chinese, Irish, Italian, or Japanese food, without forgetting one of the restaurants, international cuisine, most famous of the island: the Amura.
But before eating. What is better than relaxing yourself in a Spa? This is another of the things that Puerto Calero offers. If you want to relax and leave Puerto Calero feeling like new you have to try them -they are really good. And … what’s better when leaving the Spa than sitting down to eat or have a drink in any of the bars and restaurants ? Personally I have always liked to enjoy a drink looking at the sea.
Behind the promenade where the restaurants are located, there is a boulevard with shops where you can find the main brands of clothing, maritime items, shoes … And if you want to find something different and don’t want to go shopping, you can visit the market which is held every Tuesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and finish the day with some shopping.
Puerto Calero is a place that without a doubt you can visit again and again, whether to eat, have a drink, walk, buy or do one of the many maritime activities that are offered. A place that I will never be tire of and always like to come back to.
