Although a little windy this is a truly great beach. There can be on occasions some nudists but I wouldn't let that stop you. A little further down from the beach are some wonderful restaurants that do the most amazing Spanish food, garlic prawns and loads more. A great day out for all.

Thinking about surf? That is a nice place to go. If you are learning or if you already know your way with the waves. The beach is full with surf shops and surf schools, you can rent nice boards and also pay for surf lessons. I would recomend you not stay for overnight, unless you are there only to surf.... More

this is out of the way off the beaten track for most holidays makers which goes somewhat to add to the charm of this place. It is still unspoilt with some of most fantastic views in Lanzarote, the mountains sweeping down to ocean amongst the sandy dunes, even the drive down to Famara is special its like driving through a...

After the Sunday market in Teguise the beach at Famara is enough to keep any bored teenager happy. Surf board and wet suit rental can be found in the town centre for €13 for the day and kids can play in the surf to their hearts are content. The beach is huge, and even on busy days there is enough... More

We travelled by bus. a 40 min. journey (which was lovely) about 2 euro. A non touristy beach. great for surfing etc. no sun loungers, but take a towel. nothing on the beach apart from beach and sea. Lovely photo opportunity. A few little bars and restaurants close and a small supermarket.

Large, impressive beach frequented by the surfers. Clean and plenty of space. Very few tourists. Windy here (as with most of the island) but that adds to the ruggedness of the north section (los roccos). Worth finding, and made me wonder if pushing 40 is too old to start surfing!

Had a good day here, it is not quite a Cornish beach but in many ways better! Soft sand at waters edge and massive cliffs off to the right. Bit stoney higher up beach but at low tide it is ideal. The water is better than cornwall though and considerably warmer. A surfers paradise. Easy to park and we combined... More

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.
