Lanzarote is an island that is full of spectacular beaches different from each other. It really is difficult to choose the best option for them, but these, undoubtedly, are the 5 beaches of Lanzarote that you should visit:
In the north of the island, in the town of Famara, is this huge beach, with 6kms of fine sand toast. If you like surfing, it is one of the best beaches on the island to practice it. Keep in mind that the currents on this beach can be strong, so you have to be careful when you arrive and pay attention to the instructions of the lifeguards. It is highly recommended to walk the beach from end to end, and enjoy the sunset under the imposing Famara cliff.
In Costa Teguise we have another spectacular beach, both for a swim, as for windsurfing, the Playa de Las Cucharas is an urban beach with Blue Flag, which is located in the center of Costa Teguise. Therefore, we can enjoy all the offer of restaurants and leisure that a tourist town like this offers. On this beach, every year for the month of June, the world championship of Windsurfing PWA Costa Teguise – La Santa Surf is celebrated.
In the capital of the island, Arrecife, we find an urban beach with fine sand. There are not many people, so even if it’s in the middle of the city, El Reducto, it’s a very quiet, clean and maintained beach. An excellent option for children because there are no currents on this beach, it also has the Blue Flag badge, which guarantees its accessibility and safety.
Among the urban beaches that Puerto del Carmen offers us, without a doubt the Playa Grande is the best known. This great beach, which has a Blue Flag, is right on Avenida de Las Playas, and its fine golden sand strives to lie on it and enjoy a swim in its crystal clear waters. And if you want to do physical activity, this beach has a varied range of activities for both children and adults.
Although Papagayo Beach is the most famous virgin beach on the island, all the beaches that are in this part of Los Ajaches Natural Park are incredible. So let’s do a little cheating, as it is impossible to stay with only one beach of those in Papagayo, we better stay with all. Especially, with Playa Mujeres, for its accessibility, and with the small coves that are on the coast. It is the first beach you can find, and the biggest ones are beautiful and have spectacular views. It is highly recommended to stay until sunset; It leaves you speechless.
