Playa del papagayo, Lanzarote

4.0
Unwind in the scenic surroundings of Playa del papagayo, a beach in a national park. If it is a clear day, look out to the islands of Puertito and Fuerteventura. The fine white sand and calm blue waters are ideal for relaxing and swimming. Though there is a cafe and bar for refreshments, compared to other beaches in Lanzarote this one has relatively few amenities, so come prepared. The short trek down to the beach might not be suitable for those with mobility issues or strollers. Plan my Playa Blanca trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • I went to the resort where I was staying on the trail pretty straight forward almost everywhere with comfortable shoes, as long as you reach the first beach that opens up before our eyes, and then continuing another and then another more and more beautiful. The ocean in these creeks is a respite, and subsides as so we can enjoy the beauty of the landscape.

  • Beach away from the Centre of Playa Blanca, with access by way of land and payment of €3 entrance... Idyllic site, cala quiet water turquoises. It is secluded, but worthwhile.

  • Very nice beach, crowded, rest with terrace-dominated music... The next beach is quieter...

  • Very rough 4km track to get there. I drove slowly and still managed to get a flat. Changed tire myself, but because it was getting close to sunset I decided not to risk looking around, since I had to drive back along the 4km path and did not want to risk being stranded in the dark if I got another flat. I'm pretty damn sure it would be incredible if you did get a chance to spend some time there though.
  • A really pretty place even though the road to get there is a bit adventurous (gravel road). A clean and lovely beach. And don’t miss the view from the hills!
  • Simply the best beaches on Lanzarote.
  • 3 Euro toll and bumpy gravel track but well worth it for the beaches. Great for snorkelling.
  • 3€ entry and a pretty rough ride to the parking place are definitely worth the beach you get. Absolutely stunning view and nice blue sea. You can even have a snack or drink at a close by cafe. Recommended to everybody that doesn't like to be at a crowded main beach and doesn't bother to drive through nature and a bumpy road to get there!
