Unwind in the scenic surroundings of Papagayo Beach, 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.

Papagayo Beach Reviews
Such a beautiful beach! The road to get there is quite rough but doable. You pay 3€ before entering the protected natural area. It’s really worth a visit. more »
Beautiful unspoilt beaches that are miles of sand, difficult if walking but well worth it, it is a nudist beach as well so beware but everyone mixes well and no issues No commercialism unless you... more »
This amazing and hidden area is located in one of the National Park of lanzarote. There are fees for entering the place but the road is like a dirt road, no asphalt or tarmac route to get there. Discount applying only for residents. Big car park and free parking available. The scenery is spectacular. Great location for sleepovers with camper vans. Recommended it for sure. Amazing view and great Sandy beaches.
Brilliant beach with glorious sea breeze, there is a reasonably priced cafe on the hill over looking the beach with fantastic views. The road to the beach is very bumpy and parking can be a bit chaotic, but it is worth the trip. If you take a sun umbrella make sure you weigh it down as the wind has a habit of surprising you and scattering your stuff across the beach 😀.
