Puerto Calero is, literally a haven. The word haven means “harbour, a place of shelter and calm” and perfectly sums up the atmosphere of Lanzarote’s first leisure marina.

The first thing you’ll see on arrival at Puerto Calero is a boat – either on the sculpture at the roundabout that enters the resort, or the ranks of mast and sails swaying gently in the large marina. They reflect the main theme of the marina, which now has over 400 moorings and spaces for luxury super yachts.

Lanzarote’s location also means that Puerto Calero has become an increasingly popular sailing destination – the launching point for various tournaments and competitions, including the Royal Ocean Club’s transatlantic race.

The marina’s seafront reflects the wealthy, relaxed atmosphere of the port, with polished brass bollards, citrus trees and a host of fantastic restaurants, cafes and designer shops. This means that the marina has become a hugely popular attraction for all types of visitors, not just the maritime types.


Puerto Calero is located in the middle of the large, sheltered bay that stretches from Puerto del Carmen to Playa Quemada – a location that makes it perfect for sailing, but also attractive to whales, dolphins and other marine animals.

You can get there by car or bus, but it’s also a lovely destination to stroll to from Puerto del Carmen – an easy 2.5 kilometre walk along a well-prepared clifftop footpath that offers incredible views of the bay and the Ajache mountains to the south.

But perhaps the best way to arrive at this nautical paradise is by sea, on the regular Water Taxi that operates every 90 minutes from Puerto del Carmen and back.
