Costa Calero - The Place
Costa Calero, on the southeast coast of Lanzarote, is three kilometres from Puerto Del Carmen. It is a small resort built in 1989 with high class accommodation from five star hotels to sumptuous villas. Its fine marina attracts many luxury yachts.
Although Costa Calero has no beach of its own, the white sands of Papagayo beach and the long sands of Puerto Del Carmen are only a short bus ride away. Many water sport facilities are available at the Marina including sailing, scuba diving and shark fishing trips.
There are many fine restaurants especially those on the waterfront at the marina.
Lanzarote is an island of outstanding natural beauty with wild extremes of landscape. An excursion to the National Park of Timanfaya with its huge volcanic craters and stark lunar landscape should not be missed. As the coach winds its way around this alien landscape on a twisting tarmac road you will be overawed by the huge craters and lava formations. At the restaurant in the National Park your food can be cooked on a grill heated from deep within the volcano.
Another very popular attraction is Los Verdes caves in the north of the island with their massive stalactites and stalagmites, underground lake and illuminated caverns.
Costa Calero Nightlife
The nightlife in Costa Calero is fairly low-key and centres on the cafes and restaurants of the resort. Much of the entertainment is hotel based. Those looking for a lively time will find many bars, clubs and discos in neighbouring Puerto Del Carmen.
One of the attractions of shopping in the Canary Islands is that goods are virtually tax free. To take advantage of this, visitors will need to visit Puerto Del Carmen where they will find very many specialist shops and boutiques. There are a small number of shops in Costa Calero providing holiday essentials, gifts and souvenirs. Most of the island seems to gather in Teguise on Sundays for the wonderfully vibrant market.
Costa Calero Eating
There are a number of bars, cafes, and restaurants serving a wide variety of food and catering for most tastes. There are some fine tapas bars and restaurants down by the marina where you can enjoy the bustle of the waterfront while you eat.
