The main beach road in Puerto del Carmen known as the strip stretches from the old town harbour to the airport. The real name for the road is Avenida de las Playas which translated means Avenue of the beaches. Its 6 km follows the coastline from the main big beach in the centre of the new town through to the beaches of Los Pocillos and Matagorda. It is a hive of activity with everything you could possibly want from a resort lined up for you to take advantage of. We have a video of one of our trips along the seafront taken in December. Just look at the weather!
