Beach of Famara (Lanzarote) – What to know before going this 2020

Among the most impressive places on Lanzarote are the six kilometres that make up the maritime paradise of Playa de Famara with its clean, toasted sand, as well as some sparse vegetation that hopefully allows you to rest a while in the sun.

From the access road you will be able to feel the characteristic trade winds that will allow you to enjoy the best series of waves, as well as the vision of the surfers and kitesurfers.

In spite of being a very crowded beach you should not worry about finding space because there is always room for swimmers, children, water sports practitioners and even football matches.

Also, you can enjoy the excellent food on the terraces of the Caleta de Famara in a simple and quiet atmosphere.

Learn more about Famara Beach in the next post and I assure you that it will be one of the first destinations you will select to enjoy on your next vacation.

Location of Famara Beach

Famara Beach is located in the northwest of Lanzarote, specifically in the municipality of Teguise. It begins in the village called “La Caleta de Famara” and then extends several kilometres to the foot of the Risco de Famara.

Also, depending on the tide you can find two different landscapes that characterize the Famara Beach, because when it is low tide (low or empty) large pools of shallow calm water are formed, while when the tide is high the sea and its imposing waves cover everything.
