Our opinion on the Matagorda Beach

Adresse of the Matagorda Beach : Calle Plutón 35510 Puerto del Carmen

The beach of Matagorda is north of Puerto Del Carmen (near Los Pocillos). The northtern part of the beach is the widest and the most pleasant. However, the airport of Lanzarote is close, with permanent landings and take-offs of planes…disturbing…Beautiful pedestrian promenade along the beach to reach the various bars and restaurants (nothing very typical, we are in the most important seaside destination of Lanzarote, you better have to like bacon eggs…). No problem to stay in the surroundings, many hotels, residences and touristing complexes.

We are on the south side of Matagorda beach, just outside of Los Pocillos. Rather rocky environment at sea level.

Big drawback for this beach, it is very close to the airport of Lanzarote…Many planes pass nearby (visible on this picture).
