Playa Quemada

Playa Quemada is located in the municipality of Yaiza, in one of the many fishing villages on the coasts of Lanzarote.

Its name is due to the colour of its sands, rocks and creeks; it is advisable to wear appropriate footwear due to the steep and difficult access to the sea, however, the effort is worth it, to enjoy its wonderful waters.

It is one of the windless beaches of Lanzarote, with an excellent climate and a great marine life, so when visiting it you should bring snorkelling equipment.

Playa Papagayo

Being surrounded by rocks means that this extraordinary beach is protected from the wind, which allows waves to form on many of the beaches on the island of Lanzarote.

To visit Playa Papagayo, you can board any of the boats that sail from different parts of the island and take tourists directly to Papagayo.

If you like a bit of adventure, you can hire bicycles and cycle to Playa Papagayo; one of Lanzarote’s most famous and important beaches, which is why it is so often crowded with visitors and tourists.

Lanzarote’s Surfing Beaches

Caleta del Mojón Blanco

This is a semi-desert beach, with extraordinary snow-white sand; you can access it walking from the road and you will be surprised by the contrast of the dark volcanic rocks and the colour of the sand.

It is a place of intense winds and strong waves, in an area with a calm and peaceful climate that invites you to enjoy diving, although this is only recommended for expert swimmers.

This beach is not the most recommended for swimming and neither for visiting it with children; nevertheless, it is a propitious place to enjoy surfing, thanks to the waves that are formed with the help of the strong wind of the area.

La Cantería

Experienced surfers know La Cantería; it is an ideal surfing beach due to its majestic waves; it is recommended for surfers who have experience riding waves, not for beginners or apprentices.

It is not a swimming beach and it is recommended not to bring children.

La Santa

Experts say that the most powerful waves are located in La Santa, a tiny fishing village, which can be reached after a 15-minute drive from Caleta de Famara.

Here, in front of the village and just a few metres from the pier, the Quemao Wave breaks.

This is a wave recognised by the best surfers in the world, to the point of being compared to the mythical Pipeline in Hawaii; it is one of the best waves in Europe but also one of the most dangerous.

It breaks over a shallow reef of volcanic formation, which makes it suitable only for experienced, high-level surfers.
