Where can you camp on Lanzarote?

We must tell you that because of its condition, Lanzarote is not an island where you can camp anywhere you like.

In general, it is the local council, which is responsible for determining the areas where camping is allowed and where it is totally forbidden; these prohibitions are directly related to the protection of the ecosystem of the place.

Violating the regulations on the places where camping is not allowed can result in sanctions from the authorities; however, there are many places designated for camping and we will now take a look at some of them.

Caleta del Congrio

It is a site located in the south of the island, one of the best places to camp because of the tranquillity it offers, thanks to the fact that it is visited by few people.

The nearby coves are practically unexplored and lack any services; if you decide to visit this area you should stock up on everything you might need.
