Big, strong waves, Beautiful view, big cliffs, fine soft sand , loads of rock and sea weeds- an amazing combination. Not a sea to swim , good for surfing but we didn’t as couldn’t find any shop to provide rentals.

for me it's the nicest beach of lanzarote strong wind, wild and very great waves (surfers) surrounded by beautiful hills and then the lido with the black stoned walls behind that you can enjoy the sun outside the wind a natural paradise

Stopped here when touring the island, the beach with the big cliffs behind it looks fantastic but its not the kind of beach to go swimming on due to the waves and all the surfers. The little village was a kind of sleepy backwater.

On the day we arrived it was very, very windy - great for the surfers who were enjoying their time on the waves. Overall a beautiful beach. Worth stopping by and taking a few snaps and just enjoying fresh air.

It featured in our guidebook as one of the best beaches in Lanzarote. It is if you’re into pebble, wind, surf and big waves. Beautiful yes especially in late sunny afternoons, but swimming no. Not on the day we were there. Great drive from Mirador...More
