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. Arrange to visit Surf Spot Famara and other attractions in Lanzarote using our Lanzarote trip maker site .

    Bathing in Famara Beach (one of the few that is volcanic) was the best. You become secluded Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen but taking the car is very easy to reach. The landscape is 11 out of 10 and the tranquility is also brutal.

    very nice, but the wind prevented us even to sit on the beach. chilly treats for Beach picnics and ate snacks from sand. But the landscape is very wild and beautiful beach. Loved the kids jumping the waves.

    Beautiful beach, very long and windy. Basically for surfing, although not windy days if he can take a bath and sunbathe. In general I don't recommend for families, because it might be dangerous for children because strong currents. For nature lovers. We highly recommend a visit.
