The stylish Puerto Calero lies just a short distance from Lanzarote airport and the island’s main holiday resort of Puerto Del Carmen. Protected from the NE winds and strong Atlantic waves, Puerto Calero is an ideal location for this luxurious marina which accommodates nearly 500 yachts. The residential area of Puerto Calero contains numerous luxury villas as well as a couple of hotels and is home to a fine 18 hole golf course.
Although marinas tend to be exclusive by their very nature Puerto Calero is very much open to the public and is a popular spot for visitors to the island who can enjoy a stroll around some of the the multi million euro vessels berthed there and stop for a drink at one of the numerous bars and cafes overlooking the marina. There are also a number of stylish boutiques and up market shops if you’re looking to do some shopping. Puerto Calero has attracted some very stylish restaurants to its marina and is a lovely spot for an evening meal. There are also some lively bars to head for after dinner which stay open until the early hours.
By day you’ll find plenty to do at Puerto Calero. There are a few operators offering boat excursions along the coast and some promoting deep sea fishing trips which are a great experience in the Canary Islands. You can also learn to dive at one of the PADI accredited diving schools. Whilst maintaining its air of exclusivity, Puerto Calero has cleverly managed to grow as a ‘people’s marina’ zone where locals and tourists alike are very welcome making it a place you really should try to visit if you’re staying in this part of Lanzarote.
