Christmas in Puerto del Carmen - Restaurants for Christmas Dinner 2019

Christmas in Puerto del Carmen is very different from the usual holiday at home for most of us. You can still expect temperatures to be in their mid 20s°C and, so it will probably be a sunny holiday.

Spending Christmas morning on the beach may seem odd at first, but it's the best present you can get.

Puerto del Carmen is a lovely place to spend the holidays since it's so lively and with so many options for entertainment. No matter where you decide to stay, in the old harbor or in the new town, you will be spoiled with choices of great restaurants, bars and cafes.

See what to expect in terms of weather in December in Lanzarote

Since you've planned a winter holiday in Lanzarote, Christmas on the beach is always a good alternative and it will be something to remember. In December temperatures are still in their 20°C and rarely drop below 20°C, so do some shopping the day before and spend Christmas day on the beach. No reservation needed, Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen is large enough for anyone willing to spend the day here.

The Canary Islands are actually the warmest places to visit in December in Europe, so if you're planning a hot and sunny trip for the holidays, you should look no further than Lanzarote or any of the other islands in the archipelago.
