This is a beach on the west coast of Lanzarote that attracts surfers in their hundreds. Great to watch surfers of all expertise practice their skills. Wonderful

Great waves, lovely scenery relaxed atmosphere !! Go there instead of going to the south of the island, get moving in the waves even if you don't surf, it's a lot more fun than lying on the beach and do nothing !!!

It is VERY remote and you would probably be better hiring a cheap car for a couple of days then at least you can explore the rest of the North of the island.
