The Biosfera Plaza has something for everyone! There are four floors of shops, amusements and restaurants in a modern shopping centre overlooking the old town of Puerto del Carmen.
The first floor is at basement level, from the street you need to take the stairs down from the front entrance or walk in from the side entrance where the car park is. You can access all floors via lift, escalator or stairs.
On the very top of the centre you’d find the Rooftop entertainment centre, boasting an open air cinema, mini golf course, Jurassic park and 6d Cinema!
On the remaining floors, you’ll find a whole host of clothes shops, shoe shops and even a Movistar phone shop. There are also cafés, restaurants and a McDonalds, as well as a Eurospar supermarket.
One one level, you’ll find an all weather ice rink, and Zorbs for the kids to play in, as well as a top class noodle bar.
Look out for the summer sales each year, where you can pick up some real bargains at Biosfera Plaza.
The team at Bisofera hold regular events throughout the year, which might include fashion shows, Santa Claus visiting and a regular artisan fair.
Dotted around the centre, there is plenty of seating for those tired of shopping, and there are public rest rooms on every level.
The Biosfera is easy to find, it is situated on the roundabout at the top of the strip before the road drops down into the old town and harbour. There is a bus stop outside and a taxi rank next door, if driving then head underground to two levels of free parking.
