Thursday 13th January and we visited the sights and attractions of Janubio including La Salinas and Mirador Costa del Janubio and the beach, Playa.

The black sand, gravel and stoney beach stretches 800 metres along the southwest coast of the island.

It has the North Atlantic Ocean on one side and Laguna de Janubio and La Salinas on the other. The beach is visible from the salt flats.

Due to it's remoteness it is not a very touristy, there are no facilities here and no sunbeds or umbrellas. There are no shops or restaurants nearby, visitors need to bring all supplies and beach gear if planning to spend some time here.

There are strong currents here and the sea can be rough with high waves.

This has become more popular in the last 15 years, but note, you will find folks here who prefer to sunbathe in the nude :) The waves here can be very very powerful, and the undertow very dangerous, so most people either just sunbathe, or wander along the beach looking for fragments of peridot, or play in the very edges of the surf as it runs up the beach (it can still knock you off your feet). It is possible to go swimming here when it's utterly calm, but you do have to be aware of the sea conditions.
There are no amenities whatsoever.
One of my favourite beaches on Lanzarote.

If you want an authentic beach in Lanzarote, then this is it. Black sand lay before the raw Atlantic sea that constantly looks angry and dangerous. It’s hard to get to, this very few people.
You will need to take all food and water with you as there is nothing there.

Very commercial and ordinary, nothing we haven’t seen in so very many other places.
The Mirador always appears to be closed.

an interesting stop off on an island tour, seeing how the salt pans work, would have been nicer if the old windmills were still in operation as well

It's worth taking the old road out of Playa Blanca as you pass the salt mines which are worth stopping to look at and photograph. A passing visit rather than a long stop...

This is a nice spot for talking some pictures and have a short stop. This is not a place where you will spend more then 30 minutes. We stopped at 3 places and took some pictures. That was enough for us. Don't expect to see something unique, but just a nice place.

It is fascinating to see the salt being formed and claimed from the sea.
The works have a pleasing geometry on a wild volcanic island, with some lovely colours. I have gone here on a couple of occasions at sunset and got some fabulous photographs.
