Surf Spot Famara, Lanzarote

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 Famara using our Famara trip maker site.

  • This is one of the beaches that you must visit if ever on Lanzarote. Take a walk from Caleta de Famara al the way to the end and see how it changes. A most imposing backdrop too.  more »
