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.

Well off the beaten track and long may it remain so. Huge cliffs, wild waves, strong winds, plenty of interest. We go back every time we are on Lanzarote and really love it.

It was extremely windy when we reached, I still managed to squeeze in some great shots. The sand actual gets on to the streets of this town, what a beauty to watch. Reminded me of the plight from the movie interstellar.

We made a short trip to Famara beach and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from it all. Lovely spot at the end of the day to watch the sun go down. Also good for water sports. The scenery is just spectacular.

Very nice beach, no loungers but plenty of sand dunes to sit in. Favourite beach for surfers. Can get very busy.

I can't believe more people don't go. It's a great little beach, very relaxed and not full of tourists. You can also have surf lessons and kite surfing. Not my thing, but seemed to be very popular.

The complete antithesis of the tourist resorts in Lanzarote, this is a breathtakingly scenic stretch of coast, I could have happily spent all day watching the massive waves crashing in and the surfers battling them. No amenities to speak of so bring food with you or make the short drive to Casetas de Famara for some basic cafes.

Surfers number 1 stop. Fantastic views. Very windy. Very stoney beach. Glad I stopped but too rough for swimming on the day I passed
