Matagorda Introduction

Matagorda on the east of Lanzarote is the closest resort to Arrecife Airport. It is a quiet resort north of Puerto Del Carmen much loved by those looking for a relaxing holiday by the sea.

Why go to Matagorda

Matagorda offers holidaymakers a tranquil resort with a large sandy beach and a variety of water sports. The breeze from the sea, very welcome on a hot summer’s day, makes it ideal for wind surfing.

Matagorda is popular with those looking for a relaxing seaside holiday. It is ideal for families, sun lovers, water sport enthusiasts and couples of all ages. It is particularly popular with wind surfers because of the constant breeze across the bay. Those looking for livelier evenings need only walk along the promenade to Puerto Del Carmen with its wealth of bars and discos.

When To Go To Matagorda

Matagorda is a year round holiday destination having pleasantly hot summers and warm winters. Winter holidays are very popular with those wishing to escape the dark and dreary days of our British winter.

Matagorda - The Place

Matagorda on the east coast of Lanzarote was formerly a small fishing village. It has a soft sandy beach which slopes gently into clear blue sea. It must be remembered however that the water is the Atlantic Ocean and there can be strong currents in the bay. Swimmers should swim parallel to the shoreline. The constant breeze makes ideal conditions for wind surfing.

A promenade with shady palms borders the beach and continues on to Puerto Del Carmen. It has many cafes, small shops and tapas bars. The Commercial centre is small but provides all the day to day essentials as well as gifts and souvenirs.

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 barren 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 using heat from within the volcano. A contrast to Timanfaya is the fertile Valley of a Thousand Palms best seen when viewed from the hills.

Another very popular attraction are Los Verdes caves in the north of the island, with their massive stalactites and stalagmites, underground lake and illuminated caverns.

Matagorda Nightlife

The nightlife in Matagorda is fairly low-key and entertainment is mainly centred round hotels. Restaurants, bars and pubs all open late but Matagorda is not an all night party resort. Those looking for more vibrant evenings will find the many bars and discos in neighbouring Puerto Del Carmen will more than suffice.

Matagorda Shopping

Matagorda has a small number of shops providing visitors with holiday essentials including gifts and souvenirs. One of the attractions of shopping in the Canary Islands is that goods are virtually tax free. Those wishing to take advantage of this will need to stroll along to the busy commercial centre of Puerto Del Carmen. The Sunday market at the old capital Teguise has a huge assortment of stalls and attracts many hundreds of visitors each week.

Matagorda Eating

The wide variety of bars, cafes, and restaurants provide for most tastes. The promenade has some fine restaurants where you can enjoy your meal beside the moonlit bay. Traditional fish restaurants serving their ‘catch of the day’ special is always delicious and good value.
