Walk the white sand shores of Surf Spot Famara, set against a dramatic mountain landscape. The beach stretches almost 5 km (3 mi) in the Chinijo Archipelago natural park. While unsuitable for swimming, its strong currents provide perfect conditions for water sports such as surfing, bodyboarding, and kitesurfing. Ride the waves of this internationally recognized surfing beach, or hang glide over the shores from the high cliffs above. Head to the nearby village center for a variety of restaurants serving fresh, local seafood. Make Surf Spot Famara a part of your Lanzarote vacation plans using our Lanzarote trip itinerary maker.

  • What an absolutely stunning beach, the scenery around it is so green and the mountain views are pretty dramatic, not a beach for swimming, in fact you're not allowed to but for surf sports it's perfec...  more »
  • Large beach perfect for surfers, not touristy at all and suitable for a bit of paddling but mostly just a lovely walk

  • Beach is very nice, current is relatively safe, waves are approachable. Beginners should think about going early when the tide is going out...
  • Never short of a wave. Perfect for beginners and intermediates, who will have the opportunity to catch either broken or green waves without having to go out of their depth. But the ocean can get packed out with surf schools from 10 to 4.
  • Good beach. Waves were dumping and a bit messy when we were there. Can be windy!
  • I'm not a surfer, but I can see why it's very popular right here. It's a different kind of beach, mostly with big stones, but spectacular views nevertheless.
  • Huge beach with consistent, big waves. Avoid the rocks on the left (shown in picture). No toilets or shower.
