  • Before we discovered Orzola, this beach has like us best. Famara is definitely a surfing spot, and it is discouraged in some reviews also to come with children. At the point where we were (slightly southwest of the village), it was great for our daughter. Clearly, no child should bathe unattended, but there are beautiful sandy entrances, wind protection, and enough sand to the digging...

  • Great Ocean Bay on the coast of the island, less frequented mostly by surfers. There are in fact several surf schools just behind the beach, which is very nice even for those who don't make this task, especially for the surrounding landscape. Pretty windy. You can park for free along the beach.

  • Surfers, apprentices of auriferous, wind, waves and sand dunes that protect you in an incomparable setting.
