The route: Much more than just a beach…

Famara is acclaimed by many to be the most special place in Lanzarote – there’s no better way to understand what they mean than to see it for yourself. Just keep in mind two things: it’s best to go at low tide and check first before heading there to make sure it’s not too windy. On calm days, the sight of the Famara cliffs reflected in the wet sand is quite something.

If you start at the village end and go along the beach, it will be 17.6 kilometre round-trip, as long as the tide is low enough to allow you to reach the very end. There are also some tracks nearby which you can take if you want to increase the intensity of the route (see map).

Best feature: Ideal times for this route are at low tide and at sunset or on the night of a full moon (beach section only)
Nearby routes: La Paja Ravine | Famara – Caleta de Caballo.
