If you love active holidays, surfing, Famara Beach (Playa de Famara) is place for you. I took walk and enjoyed nice views on rocks as well Isla Graciosa from La Caleta de Famara village.

The long beach is popular with surfers but it's also ideal for a stroll. NB There's nothing there in terms of facilities other than a cafe at the village end.

to walk the whole stretch from Caleta Famara to Famara. Absolutely fab! Watch the huge surfs. We got drenched twice over when waves turned huge and hit you. Great to watch surfers too. Most of them were students making good attempts.

It’s a big long beach, more so when the tide is out. Windy a lot of the time but it’s heaven on a calm day. There’s a great mountain trail up into the cliffs to follow if your feeling energetic, I haven’t found the end...More

We returned after two fabulous weeks in Lanzarote. Lanzarote is beautiful all around, the place and the people. The one horrific downside was a drowning death on Famara beach. Apparently there are some terrible currents and people get into difficulty and the results are fatal....More

We felt like locals at this beach. Lots of dogs, kite flyers and people who seemed like they actually lived there. Particularly fun watching the kite surfers, who were amazing! The beach is HUGE and of course we wanted to go to the naturist section...More
