Absolutely gorgeous area with a lovely beach. The seafront is pedestrianised so therefore very safe and secure with no cars about. You can see the aeroplanes coming in whilst on the front as very close to the airport. Lovely for aviation enthusiasts. There's a decent selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, supermarkets and something for everyone. The people are very friendly. Managed to get 2 cocktails for 7€ which I thought was a good price and food was very reasonably priced too. There were bike you could hire to ride around and there was also a children's play park on the seafront too.

We really enjoyed staying in Matagorda again this year, but we hired a car this time too, which was brilliant, as we got to see loads more of the island. (Even though there were strikes on!). The locals are very friendly and seem to be very used to tourists driving.

A very small resort. I think a lot of people stay in Matagorda for the cheaper hotel prices, then drive/taxi to Playa del Carmen for the much larger, livelier resort. Having said that, the beach in Matagorda is nice and it's great if you like watching airplanes.

If you're looking for a lively area this isn't it, which is one of the reasons we love Matagorda. Being a bit less busy than some of the main resorts you have access to some fantastic uncrowded beaches. For loads of bars, restaurants and shops Puerto del Carmen is only a short taxi away. It cost us approx 6-7 euros single fare.

Matagorda is really lovely, miles of clean unspoiled beaches, always spotlessly clean, as was the town. There were workers constantly cleaning and sweeping making it look beautiful. The town is not huge but had everything we needed, shops were not overpriced with lovely restaurants, cafes and bars. We hired bikes and went exploring, and were not disappointed. As a family we would definitely think about visiting the area again, we looked at some villas whilst out and about and may consider that next time for a large family holiday. The area is so clean and safe, perfect for children. I would say it seems to be a family area or older couples/singles, rather than younger singles/couples. Had a lovely time and came home very relaxed.

So relaxing, plenty of bars/coffee shops, staff in these restaurants are so friendly. The area is flat so is ideal for walking from one resort to another. We love beach walking into Playa Honda and then having a coffee stop at same place each time. You can hire bikes etc if you wish as there is a brilliant cycle path.

Stayed just metres from the seafront just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and local eateries and gift shops. Dedicated cycle lane all along the seafront and lots of places to hire cycles. Good mix of hotels and self catering apartments available to suit most people. The town itself isn't over developed in my opinion and not too commercial either. Would definitely stay there again.

All the main roads run behind the resort so there is little or no traffic. A lovely promenade runs for miles along the coast. The beaches are cleaned daily and no dogs are allowed on them. The sea was warm too. Try Oceans Bar and Diner, it has been totally refurbished (used to be Barty's) and enjoys panoramic views over the sea towards Fuerteventura. A large beer for E 1.50 and popcorn shrimp for E6! Heaven!

I like Matagorda, it is small but has enough bars and restaurants and shops to cater for holidaymakers with a nice beach and traffic free promenade. You can also walk into Puerto del Carmen, roughly about 4km, or get a bus which are regular and good value about 2 euro or a taxi about 6 euros. As Matagorda is very close to the airport I wouldn't bother with transfers, jump into a taxi and you will be at your destination in less than 10 minutes for a cost of 10-12 euros.

Beaches

Matagorda is a relatively compact and relaxing resort and better still, it's pretty flat, so wherever you stay you are an easy stroll from the wide and light golden sands of the Matagorda beach.

Things to Do

Popular leisure activities include windsurfing, diving and fishing and there is also a Spa Centre at the Beatriz Playa Hotel. Behind the resort lie the excellent range of circuits and facilities of the Gran Karting Club (2km). Here you can hire karts for all ages and abilities, from children's karts to high spec karts for experienced racers and even battery operated mini karts for the under 5's or, you can just chill out on the cafe terrace and cheer on your friends and family.

Just outside of the resort you have the opportunity to play, or learn to play, golf at the Lanzarote Golf Club (4.5km). Lanzarote Golf is an 18 hole par 72 golf course with a golf academy, a summer school, a pro shop and a hire shop, a driving range, putting green, practice bunker and a restaurant overlooking the Atlantic.

Out and About

The promenade which runs alongside the beach in Matagorda is perfect for a morning or evening stroll and indeed you can follow it to Arrecife Airport or, in the other direction, through the neighbouring resorts of Playa de los Pocillos and Puerto del Carmen. And, you don't have to walk either, bikes, roller blades and segways are readily available to hire from the Centro.

The Centro is the main shopping centre in Matagorda and is centrally located along the promenade. Here you will also find a diving school, a supermarket and a good choice of bars and restaurants.

Nearby Attractions

For a fun day out, hop on the shuttle bus to Rancho Texas Park (3km) and see the exotic animals and landscaped gardens; watch the sea lion show and the birds of prey showing off their skills, chill-out around the swimming pools or take lunch at the Wild Horse Saloon. Kayaking and pony rides are also available. Alternatively, you could go in the evening for the themed Wild West or Spanish dinner shows.

The capital of Arrecife is just 10km away where you can visit cultural attractions, shop the Artisan market and high street stores or take lunch around the pretty El Charco lagoon. For lively nightlife head into Puerto del Carmen (4.5km).
