“In the northwest of the island of Lanzarote, the beach known as Famara beach with its pale golden sand stretches out for over five kilometres. It is located within the Natural Park of the Chinijo Archipelago, between the fishing village of La Caleta de Famara and the base of the impressive cliffs of Famara. It can be seen in all its glory at low tide, when the water forms a thin film on the sand which reflects the sky and the cliffs like a gigantic mirror. And if low tide coincides with sunset, visitors can immortalize a picture postcard scene which is one of the most emblematic of the Canary Islands with the island of La Graciosa silhouetted on the horizon. Famara beach is an untamed sport’s beach ideal for doing water sports like surfing, body boarding, windsurfing and kite surfing, thanks to the swell of the waves and constant winds. You can even do air sports like parasailing and hang gliding by taking off from the top of the cliffs of Famara. But at low tide, the ocean drifts out and forms enormous pools of shallow calm water all along the beach which makes it an ideal place to relax in the sun and enjoy the marvels this beach has to offer like long walks next to the sea. ”

“- [ES] Es un lugar muy bonito para pasear y tiene probablemente la playa más bonita de la isla pero suele haber mucho viento y las corrientes pueden ser muy peligrosas. En el pueblo de Caleta de Famara hay un restaurante directamente sobre la arena donde se puede comer buen pescado. - [EN] A beautiful place to have a nice walk: I would say is the nicest beach but very often windy and with dangerous currents. In the Village beside it: Caleta de Famara there is a very nice restaurant really on the sand where you can have very nice fish ”
