Things to do whilst staying at a villa in La Asomada

There are many things to do whilst staying in one of our villas in Puerto del Carmen, from day outs at fun theme parks to visiting volcanoes and riding camels.

Markets

There isn’t a market in Puerto del Carmen itself. However, there are markets in Arrecife on a Wednesday, Costa Teguise on Fridays, and Haria on a Saturday – this is a handicraft market where the stall owners produce the goods themselves. There is also a market in Teguise on Sundays – this is the largest and most well-known market.

Fiestas/Festivals

The Carnival is held in Puerto del Carmen each year in February - this is the largest annual party on the island. Many of the residents along with the tourists dress up and follow the procession of floats and bands, before heading to the all-night party.

The Iron Man is the toughest triathlon in the world and takes place in Puerto del Carmen, around the middle of May.

The end of July and beginning of August signals the ten-day celebration of the Fiesta of Carmen, patron saint of the resort which bears her name. Tourists once again join the local people to watch performances in the harbour square followed by singing and dancing until the early hours of the morning. At the end of the fiesta a flotilla of specially decorated fishing boats sets out to sea to pray for a good catch in the year to come.

Golf

At the moment, Lanzarote is home to only one golf course which is located in Costa Teguise. However, they are in the process of constructing a new golf course which is located just outside Puerto del Carmen (if you drive in the direction of Tias).

The Costa Teguise Golf Club is located at the foot of a volcano and has 18 holes with a 72 par on beautiful green grass. A villa in Puerto del Carmen puts you approximately 15 miles away from Costa Teguise and its golf club.

There is one water park in Lanzarote called AquaLanza, this is located next to the Golf Club in Costa Teguise. There is a wide range of slides and pools, making it an ideal day out for families. This aqua park features attractions for all ages, including ‘kamikaze’, ‘spiral’, ‘fast-river’, a children’s swimming pool, a restaurant area and a souvenir shop. For those who would rather enjoy their private villa in Puerto del Carmen at a slower place, the island is full of gorgeous natural wonders.

Timanfaya National park is 50 km² of volcanic landscape, known as the ‘Fire Mountains’. The national park was built to protect the beauty of the volcanic landscape. Visiting the park will give you close-up views of the volcanoes and teach you more about the history of the volcanic island.

El Golfo is a crater created by a volcano, it has filled with sea water and the algae in the water have caused it to go a deep green colour. Los Hervideros means boiling waters; there are caves and holes where lava used to run.

El Jardin del Cactus is a garden showing an impressive collection of Cacti, featuring well over 1,000 species. The restored windmill and strange metal sculptures make for an impressive contrast against the dry volcanic landscape.

Rancho Texas Theme Park is located just outside the resort, making it a popular destination for families staying at a villa in Puerto del Carmen.

Other attractions include:

- The Wine Museum

- Whale and Dolphin Museum

- Guinate Tropical Park

- Mirador del Rio, which was used as a lookout point, but is now a tourist centre and restaurant with fantastic views

- There is Jameos del Agua which is a cave system which has been transformed into an amazing auditorium, with gardens, restaurant and a swimming pool

- Lagomar is a house which was once owned by Omar Sharif. It is an amazing building, designed by Cesar Manrique. There are now tours around the house, which is built on the side of a cliff

The Santa Barbara castle is located on top of Guanapay Mountain which is right behind and overlooking Teguise. This castle used to be a watchtower in the 16th century. The castle, when used as a watchtower, has good views of the east and west coasts of Lanzarote. Santa Barbara castle is now a museum and allows tourist to venture in and learn about the History of Lanzarote.

A large variety of sports can be enjoyed by those staying at one of our Puerto del Carmen villa rentals, and thanks to the excellent weather, these activities take place throughout the year. They include running, walking, jogging, tennis, swimming and diving, windsurfing, waterskiing and sailing. There are several windsurfing and diving schools located on the beaches.

Food and Drink

The old town of Puerto del Carmen is a picturesque fishing port containing a wide variety of fabulous restaurants. Here you can eat anything from a traditional Canarian dish, Italian pasta or pizza to Irish or English breakfast. This is definitely a must for those who love fine foods in wonderful surroundings.

Boat Trips

The Princess Ico is a glass-bottomed catamaran. It offers boat trips to visit three islands – Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and the Island of Lobos, a trip to the sand dunes in Fuerteventura, the Fuerteventura express and mini cruises. The Blue Delfin is another catamaran. It has a viewing area with 32 submarine-style windows, so that the passengers can enjoy underwater marine life. It can accommodate up to 250 people.

There is also an upper deck for passengers to catch the sea breeze and admire the views. This boat offers a nine-hour excursion to Fuerteventura and Lobos, offering guests the chance to explore Fuerteventura and visit the markets. There is also an excursion to Papagayo, where the boat anchors near the beach, giving you the chance to swim and sunbathe. There is also a one-hour mini cruise where you can see the beautiful coastline of Puerto del Carmen.
