The municipality of Tias is home to the largest tourist destination in Lanzarote namely Puerto del Carmen. Many tourists return year after year to Lanzarote and figures show an up in tourists visiting Lanzarote and this is still increasing with Puerto del Carmen being the main favourite for most holidaymakers. Puerto del Carmen covers a very large area and if walking from one end to the other it would take something in the region of 1.5hrs to walk the whole strip. But easy walking it must be said. Puerto del Carmen has something for everybody, beaches, bars, restaurants, discos and much, much more. It also hosts some great events, the Carnival is a must see event and always great fun to get involved. Ironman Triathlon is another huge event and takes over the complete strip, this year around 1600 people took part. Its a great event and has a carnival atmosphere at the end where all finishers receive a medal, and well deserved.
