We visited Lanzarote as an R&R vacation while my husband was home midtour. I planned the vacation by myself, knowing he would want to surf. This beach is everything I hoped it would be. Friendly people, board rentals in the town nearby, and perfect wave after wave... It is super windy, I mean, REALLY windy, but the 1/2 circle mounds... More

Again a place I have visited over the years and one that never tires. This particular outing was cloudy but we walked along the beach and watched the surfers in the sea. Always a lovely place to walk as far or as little as the mood takes you.

If you are surfing rooky or experienced surfer, you will like the safe, sandy beach, enough place for everyone. Not overcrowded. Wave are great, had a lot of fun. Kid found enough stones and sand for playing.

The coastal area of Famara beach, surrounded by both endless and thought provoking views on the horizon on the left, and the breathtaking dangerous rocks of El Riscos at the right will keep you astonished. After the first staring minutes you either wish you could surf like a pro (or start to consider taking a lesson) or you start to... More

Took a ride up to this beach to have a day away from the busier beaches in the tourist parts. My god glad we did! No over crowding, no strangers right next to you on a sun lounger or towel. Just the 3 of us building sand castles making foot prints just a fabulous day. It's a huge beach we... More

Liked the drama of this place and the crashing waves and the ever-changing colours of the ocean. Plenty of surfers riding the waves but a red flag area with absolutely no swimming allowed. Sense of imminent danger was very apparent here. Good parking on roadside too.

Rolling waves over a long sandy beach flanked by a huge cliff escarpment. Surfers abound so can be a bit windswept but well worth a visit.

At the very north of the island, perfect for surfers of all sorts. An excellent beach for a few miles of walking and also for families. Be careful of the very strong currents. There are lifeguards on duty.The nearby village of Famara is good to visit.

Beautiful long sandy beach with impressive cliff views. Very windy when we visited, however the rock shelters proved very effective! Good for surfers, less so for a quick dip when sun bathing due to the waves.

As part of my sport training camp we cycled there and it took my breath away. It is just fantastic and beautiful. I wish I could hsve stayed a little longer. It is surrounded by mountains and it is quant. I fell in love with the place and will go back to spend a bit longer there. When you are... More
