Nearby Playa Blanca, And after a dirt road and paying 3 Euros, you keep on driving And you have 4 beaches. At the Papagayo one you find two "chiringuitos". One of them IS a nude beach.

A very beautiful area, you will need good shoes, the terrain is quite difficult but absolutely stunning, climbing up over the high ground wonderfull views then dropping down quite steeply down to the beach area, there are a few coves there and well worth the effort

There is a series of five or six beaches, depending on how you count, starting a short walk from the Papagoya Hotel. You can easily spend the day walking from one to the other and sampling a bit of each. Each beach has their own character. The beach near the cafe at the end of the penisula takes about 45... More

Playa de Papagayo can be reached by car along a tolled dirt road or on foot from the eastern outskirt of Playa Blanca, where parking is free and to where a public bus service runs. There are beautiful walks along the cliffs and beaches - some more strenuous than others. The views of the volcanoes to the north and Lobos... More

The beach at Playa de Papagayo is the best on Lanzarote and despite the dirt track approach and 3 Euros fee it has to be highly recommended. We walked it in about 1 hour from the Papagayo Area Hotel on the eastern side of Playa Blanca. It is a sheltered sand filled cove which is safe for swimming and has... More

A beautiful beach. Don't be put off by the long bumpy dust road leading to it - you're in the right place!

You can park your hire car either in the street in front of Playa Blanca's most easterly hotel "Papagayo Arena" or in the free basement car park of the shopping arcade opposite. Walking down to each beach, the distance to the two cafes will be covered easily within an hour (if you have more time, take your time to enjoy... More
