great strip of coastline
Dec 2020
famous as a surf site, but also nice just for a walk or to sit on the sandy beach and to feel the breeze looking all the folks trying to get out and up on their surfboard, Famara is a nice strip of coastline and a pleasant place to be. we came here just for a one day visit from Arrecife, just 30minutes away by public bus (line 20). it was more then worth the visit - even without surfing.

The surfing spot of Lanzarote! We been here 2 times during our stay, the first day the sea was rough so we saw many surfers waiting for and surfing that high wave. Its a very nice place to spend a few hours!

Out of this world scenic beach
Nov 2020
One of the most dramatic and thrilling beaches a I’ve seen. Visually stunning even though it’s dangerous to swim when the wind is strong, making big waves. Great place for windsurfing if you’re into it, others can enjoy the views that could do as a scenery for sf movie.

Wonderful beach in stunning location.
A brilliant spot for surfing and kite surfing and lovely to walk along too. Near to the town for great choice of restaurants/cafes.

Big waves and surfers
Aug 2019
A beach as you can see with your eyes, with water but also big waves. To the right rises the mountain, the landscape is spectacular.

Fabulous long beach
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is one of the beaches that you must visit if ever on Lanzarote.
Take a walk from Caleta de Famara al the way to the end and see how it changes.
A most imposing backdrop too.

A lovely sandy beach facing the Atlantic
Feb 2020
This is a very popular beach for surfers with lots of outlets in the town offering equipment for sale, for hire and lessons as well. The beach is clean and there is lots of space to get away from the crowds which flock there in the sun. Further down the beach away from the twon is quieter and the dunes are slightly higher providing more protection from the prevailaing wind from the Atlantic.

Claudio Santos Surf Tuition Amazing experience
Dec 2019
I spent 4 days in Caleta de Famara before Christmas with my boyfriend and will return soon. We are fairly good surfers but keen to learn techniques to take us to the next level. I was referred to Claudio by a german mate of mine and I have to say his teaching, personality and techniques were outstanding. He is a BSA level 5 instructor, speaks 4 different languages and he also coaches his 2 young sons who compete on the European circuit. He videoed us when we surfed using this high tech gadget and then we were able to sit with him and go through our performance - it was so great for our learning. I also really liked that we had a chance to have a real holiday. We did about 3 hours a day - again Claudio flexed with the tides so sometimes we went in the morning and other days in the pm. This meant we could have a lie in, sunbathe or see the island of lanzarote if we wanted to. The other schools there are a bit rigid with their timetables and you typically do about 6 hours per day.. but honestly this is too much and I much preferred Claudio's personal approach. I am going back with some work colleagues for a little team building in April and can't wait. Again because Claudio caters for all levels he can also teach my colleagues who have never surfed before. He really is a 5 star teacher and the proof is in his 2 sons who are slowly becoming international stars!
