Our opinion on the Famara Beach

Adresse of the Famara Beach : Calle Brezo de Mar 35558 Famara

It is North-West of Lanzarote, facing La Graciosa, that we find the most famous surf spot of Lanzarote. Very windy area, this big sandy beach of Famara offers an extraordinary setting with its high cliffs and its often unleashed turquoise sea. We appreciate its width and its fine sand. Seaside, the dune area is important by its width, very rare at Lanzarote to find dunes (in general there are lava fields …).

However, red flags are often drawn on this beach. Only advised for surfers … or to look at them.

The town of Famara is only frequented by surfers. A little bohemian atmosphere and very dusty.
