Easily accessible from Arrecife Airport and set in the beautiful scenery of the south-west coast of Lanzarote, Puerto Calero is an exclusive resort best known for its magnificent 400 berth marina. Puerto Calero was only conceived in the mid 1980’s, and as a result has all the shops, facilities and sports complexes you could wish for from a holiday in the sun. Taking a holiday rental in Puerto Calero will place you in the most peaceful resort on the whole island,
The marina is the focal point for many Puerto Calero holidays. The marina is wonderfully landscaped making it a fantastic place to walk and look at the vast, multi-million pound yachts moored. The many atmospheric cafes and luxurious restaurants that surround the marina provide endless hours of entertainment watching the world drifting by. The marina is also a sporting hub though. There are regular catamaran and yacht trips along the coast, whether you are there as a passenger or would like to take the helm yourself. The deep sea fishing off the coast of Puerto Calero is extremely exciting too, with huge Marlin and Blue-fin Tuna being regularly caught by visitors to self catering Puerto Calero accommodation.
You will also be pleasantly surprised by the quality and range of dive sites available from a Puerto Calero villa. Whether you are a complete novice or seasoned diver, there will be a dive site to enthral and invigorate you, with both tuition and equipment hire offered from centres along the seafront. There is even the possibility of exploring the underwater world of Puerto Calero without getting wet. There is a bright yellow submarine that lives in the marina, offering submarine tours of the coast.
The staggering volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park makes for essential viewing from any Puerto Calero accommodation. The landscape can only be described as ‘lunar’, with barren rocks, spurting geysers and some extremely rare plant species found within the park. Although you cannot walk freely around the park for your own safety, there are bus and camel rides provided, taking you to some of the most incredible areas within the park.
The glorious beaches of Puerto del Carmen are just a short drive from a holiday rental property in Puerto Calero. As there is no real beach in Puerto Calero itself, the short journey along the coast is certainly worth while if you would like to spend a lazy day on the beach from your Puerto Calero villa. Puerto del Carmen is also a great place to take surfing or windsurfing lessons whilst on holiday in Puerto Calero, and if you would prefer a slightly more raucous night out, there are plenty of bars and clubs to try in Puerto del Carmen.
Whenever you decide to get away, your holiday rental in Puerto Calero will be waiting, basking in the bright sunshine Lanzarote is known for. You are unlikely to even experience temperatures of less than 17˚C, even in a winter’s evening. During the summer months, daily temperatures routinely reach over 30˚C, with warm conditions lasting well into the night.
