Accessible only by boat or over a rough track, it's worth the effort as many regard it as the best in the Canaries.
Famara – This beach is away from the resorts, located on the north part of the island in Famara. The long, curving bay is located beneath spectacular cliffs and has a wild rugged beauty that is unique. A magnet for surfers and kite surfers!
Caletón Blanco - Rather than one beach, this is a bracelet of delicious tiny coves of white sand and warm rock pools on the northeast coast of the island near Órzola. The clear sapphire water along this stretch makes it a good snorkelling spot. Otherwise, find a suitable slab of volcanic rock to lean against and get on with your holiday reading.
Playa del Reducto - The main beach of Arrecife is a beautiful urban beach with golden sand and calm waters. It is very ideal for families and children.
Playa Quemada - The name translates as “burnt beach”, and when you see the gravelly dark sand and rocks you can understand why. On the south-east coast of the island, it adjoins a former fishing village near Puerto Calero. The beach is quite sheltered from the wind, which makes it very pleasant for sunbathing. It is also safe for swimming.
Playa de Las Conchas - the most beautiful beach on the little island of Graciosa at the nord of Lanzarote. It has also been rated in the top ten best beaches in Europe. This magnificent beach impresses with the contrasting colours: half a kilometre strip of immaculate white sand, the turquoise sea with white waves of majestic hight, the sun-golden Montaña Clara on the horizon and the red mountain of Montaña Bermeja in the background sprinkled by little vegetation. Please note, it is too dangerous to swim here due to currents and high waves.
