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 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.
