The best known urban beach in Lanzarote
Playa Grande is an urban beach located in the big tourist area of Puerto del Carmen, in the south of the island of Lanzarote. This calm water beach is over a kilometre long. Of the many beaches in the area, Playa Grande is the best known given that it welcomes more visitors than any other and life in Puerto del Carmen revolves around it. Its fame is due, in part to Las Playas avenue (the Strip) which is a long waterfront promenade with a cycle lane as well as lots of shops and nightlife areas.
