North of Lanzarote, the island of Graciosa is part of the archipelago of Chinijo (5 islets, only that of Graciosa is accessible, the others are uninhabited). Accessible from the port of Orzola by boat (regular shuttles – about 40 minutes of crossing), 700 persons live here all year (it has been uninhabited until 1876 date when a fish cannery installed there, when it closed fishermen stayed on the island), mainly in the town of Caleta de Sebo (few inhabitants north in the small village of Pedro Barba).
The island is very dry, without shade and dominated by 5 volcanoes. No paved road, only trails accessible by 4x4 or by bike. By bike, you need a good day to go around it (with some breaks, be careful the island is not totally plan and it can be very hot, provide enough water because it is only found at the port).
The beaches of La Graciosa are among the most beautiful beaches of Lanzarote. Here little traces of volcanic eruptions, the beaches are made of fine sand. The most beautiful one is in the north-west, the beach of Las Conchas but bathing is not advised (currents).
