Matagorda Overview

Matagorda is a purpose built resort on the south east coast of Lanzarote. Sandwiched between the large resort of Puerto del Carmen and the island’s capital, Arrecife, Matagorda is nice little holiday resort with a beautiful beach. Lanzarote’s airport runway is right next door to the beach but this does not put off the loyal Matagorda holidaymakers who keep coming back for the simple charms of this resort.

Mile after mile of beach

The Blue Flag beach forms part of an amazing stretch of coastline with the mighty Los Pocilllos beach and the wide expanses of Puerto del Carmen sand a short distance away. The palm tree lined promenade running the length of the resort is great for getting around and leads for mile after mile into Puerto del Carmen if you fancy a walk or an early morning jog. The heart of Matagorda is dominated by a quaint little central square flanked by a low level two storey commercial centre facing into the square. This square is home to the resort’s main bars, restaurants and shops.

Visit Timanfaya National Park

The area is great for water sports and there are several dive shops where you can buy kit and arrange lessons or hire equipment. On dry land, the nearby Lanzarote Golf Course is waiting to be conquered. Further afield the awe inspiring volcanic Timanfaya National Park is worth a visit.

 

Things to do in Urbanizacion Matagorda

 

On the beach in Urbanizacion Matagorda

The Blue Flag beach dominates the resort. To the east is the Punta Lima, an angular wrap around beach with sun loungers and plenty of space to play. To the west is the main beach with the sweeping Avenida de las Playas linking both beaches. The broad, flat beaches look out over towards the Western Sahara in the distance. Water sports are the order of the day on Lanzarote and in particular, windsurfing. If you’re feeling brave enough you can also try your hand at parasailing. Closer to ground level, maybe just hire a lounger and take it easy.

Eat and drink in Urbanizacion Matagorda

The commercial centre is the place to be if you are eating out. You will find a range of local restaurants as well as a couple of bars looking out over the beach. For a wider selection you can either make the short journey to Puerto del Carmen or travel into Arrecife. The old town of Puerto del Carmen has some lovely places to eat with some good authentic tapas bars as well as some restaurants offering authentic Canarian meals. The area by the marina is particularly good. Head in the other direction and you can sample the delights of Arrecife. The pleasant harbour is probably the place to head for.

Top Tip:

On the outskirts of the resort is the local Aussie Bar. Take a walk and enjoy the chilled out vibe.

Urbanizacion Matagorda nightlife

Matagorda is not a party town. The local bars are lively enough but you will not find late night clubs, all night foam parties and world famous DJs. For a wild night, take a taxi into Puerto del Carmen and hit the Strip. The Centro Atlantico is a multi-level entertainment centre packed with bars, clubs and fast food joints.

Shopping in Urbanizacion Matagorda

Shopping in Matagorda is limited to holiday essentials like sun cream, beach clothes and basic souvenirs. If you need to do anything more significant you will need to head into either Puerto del Carmen or Arrecife. If you’re self-catering and want to stock up you should head to the local hyper market near Playa Honda on the road into Arrecife. If you’re looking for a day out and some family shopping, try the Biosfera Plaza Shopping Centre in Puerto del Carmen. It has a great range of fashion stores as well as a dedicated children’s play area and restaurants.

Things to see in Urbanizacion Matagorda

Lanzarote is a popular tourist destination and the resorts up and down the east coast are worth visiting exploring. Way down south is the lovely Playa Blanca, home to a beautiful beach. East of Playa Blanca lies the unspoilt, wild beaches of Papagayo. Closer to home is the Go Karting track, a short journey inland from Matagorda and lots of fun. The real star of the show is the volcanic park of Timanfaya. Book a coach tour and get up close and personal with the ‘Fire Mountains’. The mountain top restaurant does cookery demonstrations using a grill plate over an active hole in the ground. It is possible to take a camel ride across the volcanic park.

 

We Recommend

 

Sapporo

A popular option in the heart of Matagorda. This Japanese restaurant does a fine line in sushi as well as a great teppanyaki grill. You get the chance to slip into a silky kimono and really enjoy the experience as well as the food.

The First & Last  

This Irish Music bar is set within the commercial centre. You are sure of a warm welcome and a lovely pint of Guinness as well as a sing song. The bar overlooks the beautiful beach and ocean beyond.

Ian Tilson, Dublin

I fell in love with Lanzarote seven year's ago and nowhere else really compare's to it. A beautiful clean island, the local's are friendly, laid-back & very helpful. Almost everything is reasonably priced from taxi's to food. I have nothing negative what so ever to say about the place!

The best thing about my stay was ...

Everything!!!

Lovely for a relaxing holiday'

Anne Gilsenan, Roscommon, Ireland

Matagorda is lovely for a quiet holiday. There are several shops including a Spar supermarket, and restaurants nearby. There is a regular local bus service into Puerto del Carmen which takes only about 15 minutes. This runs up to 11pm approximately.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Lovely quiet area with plenty of space to go for walks.

Matagorda is lovely - perfect for a quiet escape!

Eleanor Donoghue, cork, Ireland

Matagorda is small but lovely! It's quiet but it's got everything a family would need. The beach is beautiful, long, golden and sandy...the prominade runs for miles and is flat, well kept, and spotless clean - ideal for an evening walk, jog or run. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes - anything from quick snacks to pastas, pizzas, steaks, seafood and lots more. There isn't a huge array of discobars so it's not "young and lively" - but it's perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday with less hussle and bussle. You can even walk to the top of the runway at Lanzarote airport and see the planes as the come in to land - kids would find this amazing. Our family loved it here.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The long sandy beach, gorgeous sunny weather, and long spotless prominade.

fab beach beside hotel,lovely walks plenty to do and see

Brigid OSullivan, Roscommon

Matagorda is an ideal family destination, only 10 mins approx from airport,plenty of lovely restaurents. Visit the sportsmans bar is recommended, plenty of screens to catch up on any sports event while on hols but also a very welcoming bar tender who is very knowledgeable about area. Lpvely shopping area for souviners only a short stroll in any direction. Yet you can be in the center of pota del Carmen in about 6 mins by taxi for a very cheap fare or walk at an easy pace and get there in about 30mins browsing in the various shops enroute.

The best thing about my stay was ...

No hills to walk and proximity to beach, shops etc and airport

Fabulous, convenient and just right for a relaxing break.

Kath Lawrence, Sheffield

Matagora is set between the airport and Puerto del Carmen. It is a small urbanization but has a neat shopping area with two supermarkets and loads of different restaurants and bars, without being too commercial. It is busy but not crowded and has all the amenities we want as an older couple. There is, however, plenty for the kids and a lovely sandy beach. I would recommend it more strongly but don't want too many people to go there and spoil it!!

The best thing about my stay was ...

Peaceful, quiet but not dead.

Close to the airport

David Johnston, Co Kildare

We have stayed in different hotels here 4 times and we love the proximity to the airport. €8 in a cab and your at your hotel in under 10 minutes. There are a few shops around and its a nice stroll to Los Pocolos. If your feeling fitter its about 35 mins walk to Puerto Del Carmen. No traffic allowed on the promenade so its great for walkers and pushchairs etc.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Easy access to Airport and busier resorts
