Visited the main beach (beside the bar/resturant). Really nice beach to visit and well worth a trip. Be prepared for the dirt track road of about 3-4km to get here by vehicle but really worth it, especially just before sun set.

Hi Guys, This is the most beautiful beach in Lanzarote. Water is very clean - you can snorkel there but you can find there only very small fish. You will need to pay entry fee - a couple of Euros. Try to get there early and get yourself one of the places next to the rocks so you can move... More

There is minimal cover so take a... More

There is almost no shade so bring something to cover yourself if you... More

There is a road which leads to car parks close to the beaches. Access to the service road costs 3 Euros. However, the service road is in... More

Sand from the Sahara. Try to explain it to idiots who don't believe such things. It's not the Grand Canyon, but you probably will spend longer here just to enjoy. After all, how long does one gaze politely at the afore said canyon before yawning and going for a burger.
