the string of beaches along this coast are superb. It's possible to drive to specific beaches on a dirt track, or a walk, the first beach, Mujeres, is only a short walk from the edge of Playa Blanca. Bring your own food and drink. To walk from beach to beach, either around the cliffs or over them, is easy and... More

Loved this beach! Pretty remote and not full of tourists. Saw a few people fishing and swimming in the same waters. Amazingly beautiful scenic views. Be careful though, as part of the beach is all rocks. Some porous due to volcano and some round and slippery when wet, so make sure and bring proper shoes. You can walk from one... More

We went by water taxi- you can get the boat from either playa blanca or marina rubicon/ they are quite regular- but weather dependant on if they run. The water taxi is also a glass bottom boat and they stop and feed the fish so you can see. To get off at the beach approx 8 people at a time... More

We walked here from Marina Rubicon. It takes about an hour. You'll need good comfy walking shoes as it's very up and down. Take plenty of water and a picnic as there is nothing on the beach (which is the main attraction) However, you can walk up the cliff to a little bar with great views. It is possible to... More

This is without doubt one of the most beautiful beaches of the Canary Islands. The location is spectacular and offers beautiful views over the ocean and the coast. You will find two snack bars on site.

We visit this beach each time we visit it isnt crowded out as it is out the way and you need a car but highly recommended on a visit to the Island.

This is undoubtedly one of our favourite places on Lanzarote. After a fairly bumpy ride down a pot-holed track you will be rewarded by a choice of several beaches and some wonderful cliff walks. The first beach you come (carry straight on at a junction) to can be crowded but is relatively sheltered from the prevailing winds and keeps the... More

Nice beach however quite busy. The weather was very windy when we went and the road to the car park is poor and you had to pay to use it. Other nicer beaches available for free. You can walk to this beach however we didn't have enough time as we were driving here from another part of the island

The water here is incredibly clear and wonderful to swim in, even in November. Accessed via a bumpy track which costs 3 euros, not to be done every day of the holiday but definitely worth a trip if you have a car.
