Located north west of Lanzarote, Caleta de Famara is the most famous surf spot of the island. Offering a beautiful view on the north cliffs and on the island of La Graciosa, the atmosphere is really different from the other towns of the seaside of Lanzarote. Here no massive tourism, we are in a small fishermen town with its white houses and its dusty roads. Time seems to have stopped in Famara … Only a few surf shops and some restaurants, taken from assault on weekends by locals to come eat fresh fish.
On the side of the beaches of Famara, there is only one where we can go to at the entrance of the town (the rest of the coast is recovered of volcanic lava). It is beautiful and is part of the most beautiful beaches of Lanzarote. However, bathing is dangerous (several death each year), it is mainly frequented by surfers.
Housing side at Famara, there is mainly appartments for rent between individual. The offers is adapted to surfers, the prices are low. No hotel in the area, thiszone is isolated (Famara is deadlocked). We advise the destination only if you are a surf lover, if not Famara only deserves a stop for lunch (the restaurant El Risco is very pleasant and offers a nice view).
