The scenery (surrounding mountains) is very impressive and worth a detour if you are in Lanzarote. Very windy every time I have been (hence all the surfing activity).

Not only the beach is good, especially if you surf, but there are good opportunities for hiking in the close-by mountains! If you are in Lanzarote, you cannot miss it!

A quite windy day. Waves were pretty spectacular and the surfers were out. Not somewhere for a swim or relaxing day on the beach but impressive.

The red flag is always up on this beach but if you a beginner surfer like me visiting in March, you’re at the right place! Sign up at one of the surf schools (Red Star was amazing for three weeks) and you’ll love this place!
