Caleta de Famara

Caleta de Famara, Lanzarote

Caleta de Famara is the surfing spot on Lanzarote, where you can learn how to surf, or improve your surfing skills. Coming from the direction of Teguise, take the LZ-402 to Famara and you will pass the natural white sand beach and take a look at the surf and the waves at Playa de Famara. Following the course of the road, you drive into the small village and, directly on the left, you will find several surf schools, which are unmistakably decorated with various surfboards and neoprene suits as well as different logos. There are plenty of parking spaces around. Apart from that Caleta de Famara is a small and quiet fishermen’s village with few tourism. But one of the best restaurants on Lanzarote is located there: The “Restaurante El Risco.”

The flow of the ocean is strong in Famara. Be careful when you go into the sea with or without a surfboard and do not go behind the point where the last waves break. Thus, at Famara Beach is always the red flag hoisted up.


Arrieta, Lanzarote

If you follow LZ-1 in the direction of Jameos del Agua, you will pass the two coastal towns of Arrieta and Punta Mujeres.

Sunrays glisten on the water, small fishing boats sway to the beat of the light waves, locals cast their rods in the hope of a good catch.

ArrietaShortly before entering Arrieta, turn right to the beach Playa de la Garita, also popular with locals and very suitable for children, with access to the popular beach bar “La Casita de La Playa”. On this beach to the north you reach the second recommended bar “El Chiringuito”, with the best access from the side of Arrieta.

In Arrieta there are some good fish restaurants, pizzerias, supermarket and also a stationery shop. Also the supermarket at the gas station with a large assortment, which is also open on Sundays, directly at the entrance to the village, is really well recommended.

The two coastal towns of Arrieta and Punta Mujeres have managed to retain their charm and ambience. Small whitewashed houses with blue or green shutters dominate the village.

In Arrieta you will probably notice the house “Casa Juanita” shining in shades of blue and red. The special location of this charming building, which borders the harbour pier on one side and the Atlantic on the other, is the background of a rather sad story from the early 1920s. At that time a Lanzaroteño built this beautiful house for his lung sick daughter. She was supposed to recover by inhaling the salty sea air, but unfortunately died in early years.
In front of “Casa Juanita” is the small lagoon “El Charcón”, which with its shallow waters is the ideal place to stay, especially for families with small children.

Accommodation in and around Arrieta can be found here >

El Golfo

El Golfo, Lanzarote

El Golfo is situated in southwest of Lanzarote. This small fishing village is known for its tasty fish specialities and the natura attraction “lago verde“. Fish is caught, gutted and cleaned right in front of your eyes, very much to the joy of the sea gulls who happily treat themselves to the leftovers. There is a small footpath at the end of the village, which leads across lava rock all along the cliffs. Sturdy footwear is absolutely necessary here.
However, the absolute highlight is the magnificent sun set. Accompanied by a glass of delicious wine from Lanzarote, it lets you just simply forget everything.

“Los Hervideros”, “Lago Verde” or “La Lagna de los Clicos” in El Golfo are one of the most beautiful places of the island, without any doubt one of the Must See of Lanzarote.
