Stunning, remote beach.
Nov 2020 • Couples
Leisurely stroll across this beautiful island takes about an hour and a half. Well worth it for this pristine, clean-sand beach with gorgeous views out to the northern islets. Turquoise water, no facilities - perfect. Only about 20 other people there on this sunny November Sunday. Take note of the warning notices about deaths in the waves before swimming!

Wow
Dec 2019 • Couples
What have we been missing? We have visited Lanzarote 9 times in the last 2 years and never been to La Graciosa. This time round we made that visit and so glad we did. Absolutely spectacular. Like walking in to some kind of film set. Out of this world. Nothing like we expected. Very tranquil. The views have to be seen to be believed. Was very windy but this kept the temperature to a bearable level. Some lovely restaurants in the harbour area. We was only there for 4 hours so couldn't venture too far. The beach and coastline was an amazing walk. Would love to spend a long weekend here.

Truly Spectacular
Dec 2019 • Couples
A beautifully preserved and desolate beach on the West Coast of Graciosa. A masterclass of the white powdery stuff.

If you make it to Graciosa, rent a bike or walk the 1 hour to the beach - we'll worth a look and the spectacular scenery.

Just a dat trip this year
Oct 2019
I used to spend some time on the island but it's not quite like it used to be. I have just popped over for a day trip. I walked to the beach-about 55 mins; lots of people hire bikes and they get absolutely knackered (often the ladies not used to cycling uphill against the wind). The beach is the best in the world. so definitely worth a visit. There are always red flags flying but if you are a reasonable swimmer there is good fun to be had in the waves. I never found any dangerous currents;; best waves are away from rocks are in thr middle of the beach. You will see the bigger waves there.

Great place to get away from it all

We went here as part of the TUI coast to coast tour. Wasn't expecting much as I'm not a beach person, but I was really pleasantly surprised. Its beautiful there, so peaceful and tranquil but with some of the most stunning views. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Beautiful beach. Beware of the oil
May 2019 • Family
The most beautiful beach. Picture perfect gorgeous deep white sand, blue ocean and not a bit of it spoiled by tourism.
Was very careful with children near the sea.... paddling only for small children as i can imagine the waves can be dangerous and no lifeguard due to its location.
Got a 4x4 taxi from the ferry dock and was £7 pp return for 6 people. Was a bump ride which the kids LOVED. taxi was by Miguel and he came back at the exact time we asked.
The only thing to spoil it was spots of oil sticking to our feet. Our taxi driver told us this is due to big cargo ships emptying their tanks in the atlantic and with little policing of it this is an issue for everybody including sealife and such a shame. However it came off fairly easily and was only on the soles of our feet so not a huge problem for us.
All in all a really worthwhile trip that we all enjoyed ages 7 - 60

Gorgeous beach, worth the walk
Apr 2019 • Family
Beautiful unspoilt beach around an hours walk from caleta de sebo. Be sure to take plenty of water as once you leave the town thereis nothing but a dirt track until you return.

An almost unimaginably pretty beach
Jun 2018 • Solo
This is a gorgeous beach, well worth the one hour walk from the little town of Caleta de Sebo on the other side. It never seems to get crowded, it could take thousands of people but it seems to never have more than 10 or 20 or even less some days I went there. One word of warning, don't swim unless you are a good swimmer as people have died here before swimming, freak waves apparently took paddles off the beach. There are no lifeguards and help would be a long way away.

Beautiful

A beautiful, quiet beach, but watch out for the waves! As they have the whole of the Atlantic to build up in, they can be very powerful.
If you're looking for bars, ice cream vans or fish & chips, don't bother coming here.

If you want a quiet beach with soft golden sand, you've found it.

Beautiful beach
Feb 2019
I have seen many beaches around the world and Las Conchas is one of my favorites. Long and yellow strip of sand, tranquility and blue see. Well, we had the best weather during our visit too..... The sea was tempting (18.degree C) but warnings about currents were on place. You can walk or take bicycle. Do not take a taxi, for hikers and cyclists, they produce a rather annoying dust.
