Fantastic beach at Papagoya. Be prepared to negotiate a bumpy and dusty road and pay €3 for the privilege. Once you've paid, follow the road and you get to a junction where you... read more

Fantastic beach at Papagoya. Be prepared to negotiate a bumpy and dusty road and pay €3 for the privilege. Once you've paid, follow the road and you get to a junction where you can turn left to Papagoya or go straight on. If you head to Papagoya, you have a few more minutes of bumpy road to traverse. You then... More

Had a great day at the beach! We were staying nearby but because we went the back roads we missed all the signs. We eventually got onto the dirt track leading to the beach. You have to pay £3 for parking which is fine but it wasn't really clear where we were going - I had to get out of... More

I walked from the gran Castillo to the little cafe at the end of papagayo beach. I also drove there and there is a small fee of €3 to go the the last beach next to the cafe. It's worth a look and a must if you life to spend the day on the beach but there are no sunbathing... More

Bit of walk to the beaches from the car park but worth it. Find a quiet cove to relax in peace and quiet. Didn't manage to find the nudist areas though!

If you have a car or transport - you must visit this beach area. Absolutely stunning. Cannot think of anything other than perfect to sum it up. Just to note - it is best to avoid if you have all the gear that comes with small children as it would be hard to get it down here and back up... More

Very clean beach, white sand, clear warm water, safe to swim in. Must visit! Not easily accessible for disabled / elderly people as it is a bit of a mountain descent to get to the beach. However there is a cafe at the top with toilets & refreshments, and spectacular views.

Family of four, 2 adults 2 teenagers, first visit to Lanzarote. This beach was by far the best we visited. All beaches in Lanzarote appear, upon our limited 2 week view, to be lovely, clean and water the bluest blue. However, Papagayo is like a paradise. The beaches are a series of wide stretches of golden sandy coves. The sea... More

We decided to visit Playa de Papagayo as it came so highly recommended in Trip Advisor. Big Mistake. To get to the beach you turn off the main road and then drive for about 15 minutes + on a very rough dirt road, you can go faster if you dont care about punctures or your suspension. Half way along you... More

Little beautiful beach located south. This beach is just like a postcard. starting with the blue ocean in front of you, then the cliffs on the side. It is really breath taking. But you should rent a car, better than going if a tour, you will be more free to stay or leave.
