Top Matagorda Hotels
The thermos and thermals can stay unpacked because even in the doldrums of winter, Lanzarote holidays are a sure bet for sunny temperatures averaging around 15 to 20° Celsius, soaring to near 30° Celsius by summertime. People who like rainy holidays can look elsewhere - by Matagorda's sun-basked coastline, the best way to get wet is by splashing into the warm Atlantic waters.
What really draws beach lovers on holiday to Matagorda is it's pristine brown silted seafront, an unspoiled blue-flag beach abutting the sapphire Atlantic waters. From here, you can view the distant skyline of Puerto on the horizon, or watch planes making their way to and from Arrecife Airport. Don't worry though - you're far away enough for any noise not to be a nuisance. For some great panoramas of the surrounding seascape, traverse the promenade to the nearby (and equally gorgeous) Los Pacillos beach, day or night.
Close to Matagorda, Puerto del Carmen is host to many festivals all year round, such as the massive Carnival in late February and the Feast of St Carmen in late July, in which throngs of tourists on holiday and Canarians alike participate in folk singing, dancing and even fishing ceremonies! Talking of fish, you can sample some of Puerto's marine specialties in the local markets strewn around the Old Town, anytime you come.

For the kids, there's the huge Rancho Texas Theme Park, replete with treasure hunts, canoeing and some amazing wildlife, from falcons to tigers.
