Lovely walk to do along the coast from Playa Blanca to Papagayo. It took us about an hour and 20 mins. Well worth the effort and the 2 beaches which are beautiful. We have visited the little cafe at the top of the cliff a couple of times for the views.

We abandoned our first attempt to reach Papagayo beaches, because the unmade road looked too rough for our little car. However, on the 2nd attempt we made it to the series of beaches, and we were glad that we did. The weather was blustery and too cool to sunbathe, nevertheless there is a nice cafe where we sat and supped... More

Large swathes of almost deserted white sand Gentle slopes into the sea. Photogenic. These beaches are nudist but noone takes offence if you DON'T strip off.

I can understand why many feel Lanzarote is a dust bowl, as they never leave puerto del carmen. Having grown up visiting Lanzarote several times a year, I know it well and this beach is so unique, it's like a hidden paradise that many don't know it there 'maybe that's a good thing, keeping it from getting overcrowded'. the sea...

One of the most beautiful remote beaches on the island. The sand is yellow not black! It's a bit of a rough stony walk down to the beach so don't wear flip flops! Take a picnic.

We had read in all the guide books about how this was one of the best unspoilt beaches on the island. Not being a family that enjoy amusements or English pubs it sounded perfect. We had to pay at a kind of checkpoint in order to get to the car park. It was quite remote but plenty of parking. The... More

Fabulous beaches, although used by naturists too, be aware!! Los Ajaches National Park is a vast and stunning area for those who love walking. Very reminiscent of Dartmoor, Devon. Well worth the hour or so walk to get there from Playa Blanca. It is also accessible by car or local bus.
