Puerto Calero is the exclusive sport marina which is just a 5 minute drive from Puerto del Carmen. It is the most expensive real estate on the Island, making it a very desirable place to live.
Puerto Calero hosts many world renowned sailing and fishing events throughout the year and there are several yachts and fishing boats which offer day charters. A great day out is a trip on the Catlanza catamaran. A wonderful chance to see the beautiful coastline between Puerto Calero and Papagayo beach in Playa Blanca.
There are several excellent restaurants serving traditional Spanish food, Italian, Indian, Argentinian and Sushi as well as designer shops, a chandlers and a supermarket which is open every day of the year.
Twice a week there is a market in the main square where stall holders sell their hand crafted jewellery, clothes, leather and various souvenir items.
There is a rugged coastal pathway which takes you into the old town of Puerto del Carmen. This is a very pleasant 20 minute walk. However, if you prefer to travel by boat, there is a water taxi next to the Amura restaurant.
