There are corners of Lanzarote that are worth visiting. One of them is the Papagayo beaches, among which is the well-known Playa Blanca.
An area, within the Ajaches Natural Park, with crystal clear water and comfortable sand to spend the day.
In addition, between the two beaches there are a couple of gastronomic spaces where you can enjoy traditional cuisine and, in turn, incredible views.
Information of interest: during the day, access to these beaches, whether by car or motorbike, costs three euros per vehicle. Amount that must be paid -since the pandemic- only by card.
Recommendation: do not stay in the first area of sand you find. If you are a bit adventurous, cross over to the neighboring coves and you will find a haven of peace and tranquility worthy of the vacation you deserve.
Good vibes -some call it "chill mood"- along six kilometres. Famara beach is the longest beach on the island located under the mountainous cliff, Peñas del Chache, the highest point in Lanzarote.
On the other side of this beach are the islands of La Graciosa, Alegranza, Montaña Clara and Roque del Oeste. The river that separates the island from these islets causes certain currents that, although they are the ideal ally for surfers, force us to be careful.
If you are a lover of surfing or kite surfing, we recommend you spend a few days staying in Caleta de Famara, a town full of schools to learn water sports.
Recommendation: visit Famara in the afternoon and wait for sunset to contemplate a landscape like no other.
Have you noticed the main characteristic of the land of Lanzarote? The crops grow on black earth and, in this case, the sand of Playa Quemada is also of this color. Together with Playa El Pozo and Cala Quemada they make up the paradise in the southeast of the island.
And, surprise! In addition to being a wonderful enclave with little traffic, it has a microclimate that encourages bathing.
Just over a kilometer from Lanzarote is La Graciosa, the main island of the Chinijo Archipelago. Visiting it is mandatory and touring it by bicycle is an adventure. In 20 minutes pedaling you can stand on the Las Conchas Beach, with clear sand and crystal clear water. A place of envy for lovers of rest.
At the same distance but towards the south of the island, we findFrench Beach, your destination if what you are looking for is silence and a haven of peace in a place like no other.
Information of interest: book your round trip by boat with some time in advance (especially if you travel in high season). We recommend you go very early in the morning and come back in the middle of the afternoon to take advantage of the early hours of the day where the sun doesn't sting as much.
Recommendation: visit La Graciosa well equipped with an umbrella (or cap), water and some food. If you prefer to eat and drink in La Graciosa, book before or right when you arrive so you don't run out of a table.
