I thought I was back in the Antigua with its crystal clear water. Absolutely beautiful. A must visit if you go to Lanzarote. The road up to the beach was a dirt track and the beach is down a cliff with a pathway. There is a beautiful restaurant/bar between the car park and pathway down to the beach. Heaven ❤️

These beaches were a great find, but had to travel on gravel for quite a long way to reach the car park from the main road, but only a short walk from the car park to the 3 beaches we went to, one of the beaches had coves and was sheltered from the wind, you will find naturists on one... More

The beaches at Papagayo are beautiful, but be warned if you don't like nudity people tend to bare all on the first beach you come to. The second and third beaches along seemed only to have the occasional topless girl and more populated with families. There is a fourth beach across the other side away from the three obvious beaches... More

Beautiful spot - very popular. The road to the beach is very rocky and bumpy for around two miles but well worth the trip when you get there

It was busy enough in February, can't imagine what high season is like! But it's truly lovely. Fun journey on the rally route of a road, great beach, rocks to clamber over and good value restaurants overlooking it all. A welcome escape from the horrors of Playa Blanca.

Walking or driving to this beach and you will travel over some very bumpy and rocky terrain, but when you reach it you will realise it was well worth it. The beach is pure sand and very long and sheltered from the wind. The sea is rocky but all in all well worth visiting ......

Small and sheltered and fantastic for snorkling. A natural beach with no deck chairs and a short but stiff climb down from the cliff. A small and expensive cafe overlooks from above. Does get very crowded. About 1.5 miles from the main road and only accessible with a rent a car. Very hot and dusty, don't try to walk it... More

We hired electric bikes to visit here and although the journey was a little uncomfortable, the views and beaches were worth it! Enjoyed a drink in the boat like cafe and a swim in the sea, glorious!

Whether driving from Playa Blanca or elsewhere, the last couple of miles are on a rutted dirt track and you have to pay 3€ for the privilege. Easy enough, but the car hire companies do not allow use of such tracks - so don't tell them! Several beaches. As you park by the two restaurants on the cliff top, Papagayo... More
