It is the largest municipality on the island, set in a volcanic landscape, and was the former capital of Lanzarote. Its stately and noble past can be seen in its traditional architecture. Strolling through the cobbled streets of its historic quarter is very pleasant and welcoming.
It has been the capital of Lanzarote since the middle of the 19th century. It is a different city to other capitals, as it has managed to preserve its seafaring heritage and the calm and welcoming character of the small port towns.
Playa Blanca is, in the south of Lanzarote, one of the most important tourist enclaves of the island due to its spectacular beaches and its hotel offer. It is located opposite Fuerteventura, separated by an arm of the sea called Estrecho de la Bocaina. On clear days, it is possible to see the neighbouring island.

Puerto del Carmen, in the southeast of the island of Lanzarote, has more than six kilometres of beaches, among which Matagorda, Playa Grande and Los Pocillos stand out. Its location protects it from the trade winds, which blow all year round and mainly in the warmer months. It is one of the most touristy spots on the island, so there is something to suit all tastes.
