The second option would be to pre-arrange for the collection of a hire car from one of the numerous agencies
based at the airport.
Driving south to Puerto Calero should be fairly stressless for most drivers, once you have remembered
which side of the road to drive on, as you leave the airport facility you will automatically join the LZ2,
the Carretera de Arrecife de Yaiza, at which point you need to head south west towards Tias.
Once past Tias you then need to keep a very sharp lookout for the poorly marked Puerto Calero junction, which
will then take you all the way into the centre of the resort.
If needed, a more detailed version of this route, complete with links to maps where appropriate, is available from the
link on the left hand frame of this page.
Whatever method of transport you ultimately decide upon for this journey, once you have settled into your chosen accommodation
and have had the opportunity to explore beyond the hotel grounds, you will very quickly realise that the focal point of the resort is
undoubtedly the impressive
Puerto Calero Marina.
This provides secure moorings for 420 vessels up to a maximum length of 75 metres, and along with the
development in nearby
claims to be "the best in the Canary Islands".
Construction of the marina began almost 25 years ago now when the developer José Calero first recognised the potential of this part of south
east Lanzarote, and formed Puerto Calero sa with the intention of creating an exclusive development of a marina, residential area and golf course.
Whilst the dream of a golf course has yet to be fully realised, we recognise that the bureaucratic processes necessary to approve this type of
project are notoriously slow throughout all of Spain, and it may be many years before visitors to this area of Lanzarote actually get to play the
greens on this course.
On the negative side, something this resort does really lack is a beach, although if you are prepared to travel out of the town,
you will find an excellent beach 2km at nearby Puerto del Carmen.
However, for most visitors to Puerto Calero the lack of a
beach isn't really a great problem, preferring instead the sand-free environment of their hotel pool.
