The island of La Graciosa and the four other islands of the Chinijo Archipelago (Alegranza, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste) extend above the northern end of Lanzarote. La Graciosa, the only inhabited island of the group is separated from the main island by a narrow 2 kilometre strait known locally as El Rio and Alegranza – the most distant of the archipelago - is 19 kilometres further north. Of volcanic origins, the islands are surrounded by seas which teem with fish drawn by the upwelling of the nutrient rich cool Canary current here. Photo: ©Lanzarote37°/Bernard


La Graciosa has much to offer in the way of beaches and coastline. Many of the La Graciosa beaches are peaceful, secluded spots which can only be reached on foot. Photo: ©Lanzarote37°/Bernard

Do you prefer to have some facilities like showers or public toilets at your disposal? Are you looking for an area which is especially kid-friendly? Are you a fan of water sport like diving, windsurfing or snorkelling? Or do you just want to forget about all you have left behind for a while, enjoying the blue sea, the golden sand, relaxing in peace and quiet? Well, Lanzarote offers every kind of beach on which to live out your holiday dreams.
All main resorts - Costa Teguise, Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca offer a choice of beautifully situated sandy beaches, with ample sunbeds and fulls facilities. Some of them with restaurants, shops and bars lining the beach promenades.

Windsurfing fanatics will be in heaven on the beaches of  Costa Teguise. For perfect diving excursions head to Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero. Nudist Lanzarote beaches have emerged at a few locations including Papagayo beach, Janubio beach, some at Famara, also at Guacimeta beach near Lanzarote Airport and at Charco del Palo (Mala).

PUERTO DEL CARMEN

The choice of beaches in Puerto del Carmen is superb for families, and there are numerous watersports and water fun rides available including banana boat rides, paragliding, pedalo and various boat trip options such as the glass bottom variety and the famous yellow submarine excursion departs from Puerto del Carmen. The so called Playa Los Pocillos is a very wide beach, but not very long and you will be surprised by the distance between the sea and the avenue, approximately 150 meters. Previously in this sector there was a saline because the level of the beach is similar to sea level, this explains why when the tide rises leaves small puddles of water the so called Charcos. Los Pocillos beach is ideal for practicing any sports, it is a pretty beach with little wind, deck chairs (hammocks) are protected with net stopping the sand that the wind rises. At Los Pocillos beach in Puerto del Carmen we can highlight its broad promenade, also Plaza Europa that is visited by families who come to skate or ride in bicicles. There is quite a trade, is a beach well served. here are two shopping centres, at the beginning of the beach called Jameos Shopping Centre in the centre of the beach, on the avenue, the so-called Mall Pocillos.

Papagayos in Playa Blanca

The Playa Papagayo beaches are at the southern end of Lanzarote, close to Playa Blanca, the third largest resort on the island. Playa Blanca boasts golden sandy beaches and all are well away from the road so they are ideal for families and children. Nearby, are also the famous idyllic beaches of Papagayo. Mostly al with a fantastic view to Los Lobos and Fuerteventura. Papagayo beach approach via gravel road, parking fee: 3€

Playa de Papagayo itself is rarely used for nude sunbathing because it is overlooked by a large restaurant which sits on the peninsula and because its reputation as the best beach on the island attracts many non-nudist visitors. But there are several nude beaches in the area which are just as nice as so called Playa del Congrio, Playa Las Mujeres and Playa del Pozo. All of these beaches are suitable for nude sunbathing although they have no facilities so take everything you need with you.

The beaches of La Graciosa rival anything in the Canaries for beauty

La Graciosa the eighth Canary Island with approximately 600 inhabitants, no roads and some seriously impressive beaches is certainly a great destination. It´s simple to get to La Graciosa: Ferries run every day from the small port at Orzola ( cars can be parked close to the ferry port).
Tickets can be bought around 10 minutes before departure. The cost of a return journey is €20 for adults and €11 for children.
There is also a water taxi that collects and returns from Arrieta and Punta Mujeres for €15 return. Phone Daniel: 676 901 845 or 626 507 458 or the Sea Taxi La Graciosa 609 114 219
As there are no proper roads on La Graciosa transportation is by 4×4 taxis only. They will transport you also to the beach of your choice and pick you up at a pre-arranged time. Costs €20.
