Lanzarote has almost three million visitors each year, attracted by the island’s beauty and gorgeous climate.
Each of the resorts offers fantastic, clean beaches with lifesavers and nearby facilities, but there are also a number of unmissable beaches elsewhere. Here are a few:
Arrecife’s broad crescent sweep of golden sand is the island’s largest city beach.
Little known by tourists, Arrieta’s family beach is simply great fun for all the family, young and old.
A must-visit, Papagayo is a series of utterly gorgeous beaches at the island’s southernmost tip. Crystal clear waters, golden sand and wonderful views await, but go prepared – there are few facilities here.
Regularly voted tourists’ favourite place, Famara is a surfers’ paradise and a magnificent beach set against cliffs and distant isles. Bathing is not recommended but you must experience this place’s spiritual beauty.
Pure white sand and a warm, shallow lagoon aare the main attractions of this wonderful beach just south of Órzola.
Another place where swimming is a very bad idea, but the stark black strand separating the sea from the saltworks is astonishingly beautiful.
