Spectacular Beaches in Lanzarote

Papagayo: Costa Papagayo is designated as a national park of Lanzarote, and is set on and around a large peninsular, just to the North of Playa Blanca.  Below the cliff of the peninsular, and to its east and west, Papagayo has 6 beaches, including several small coves that you can get to by trekking carefully down quite steep access paths from the main cliff.

You can either drive to Papagayo down a dirt track, stopping to pay the 3 euro toll on the way in, or get there by boat taxi from Playa Blanca or Marina Rubicon (15 euros per head).  You can also walk there from Playa Blanca, but it’s a long way.

However you get there, once arrived the scenery will take your breath away, as you can see from the photographs on this page.  Papagayo is a wonderfully chilled out beach experience, and is known to be one of the best, most scenic areas in the Canary Islands.  Support facilities are quite limited - it is a remote area, after all - but on the central cliff near the parking area is a really nice beach/cliff cafe with sensible prices and great views (and loos!).

If you get easily bored with lying on the beach and dipping in and out of the sea all day, you can always go exploring over the cliffs or take a walk to one or more of the other beaches.  A good book to read comes in handy too.
