Beach holidays in Lanzarote

In Lanzarote you will find clean beaches for swimming and recreation. Here you will get a general idea about the beaches and nudist beaches on the Canary island of Lanzarote.

Puerto del Carmen:

Playa Blanca is located in front of the tourist resort of Puerto del Carmen and is a bright, wide sand beach and about 2.5 kilometres long. The beach and the water are very clean and specially suitable for children.

Playa de los Posillos, Playa Matagorda:

Both, the Playa de los Posillos, followed by the beach of Matagorda, are the north eastern extensions of Playa Blanca in Puerto del Carmen. They are very nice long sand beaches, excellent for runners and for swimming.

Playa Honda: Playa de Guasimeta, Playa Honda, Playa del Cable

Continuing in direction Arrecife, at the airport and at the Playa Honda, sand and reefs are alternating. Not recommended during very windy days.


Playa del  Reducto

The city beach south of Avenida Fred Olsen. The beach is located at a wide wind protected bay.

Costa Teguise: Playa Bastian, Playa de las Cucharas

The Playa Bastian is a small sand beach south of Costa Teguise. Entering the water at low tide is very difficult. The Playa de las Cucharas is located in the centre of Costa Teguise. There is always a strong wind, for that reason is this beach the centre of the wind surfers.

Arrieta: Playa de la Garita

A beautiful, quiet beach. During strong winds also popular with surfers.

Orzola: In front of Orzola three small bays with snow white sand.

La Caleta: Playa de Famara, a beautiful beach “Attention” there are very strong currents if the sea is calm! This coast is suitable for wind surfing, surfing and kite surfing. Beach walkers will enjoy this spot too. 

The entire west coast is very dangerous for swim!

El Golfo bis Playa Blanca: laya El Golfo, Playa de Montaña Bermeja, Playa de Janubio, black sand, wild and dangerous, swimming here can be fatal.    

Playa Blanca:

Playa Dorada, Playa Flamingo, 

Künstlich angelegte Sandtrände in Playa Blanca. Es werden Liegen und Sonnenschirme vermietet und beide Strände sind geeignet für Kinder.

Artificially prepared sand beaches in Playa Blanca. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented, both beaches are suitable for children. The famous and beautiful Playas de Papagayo located at about 4 kilometres from Playa Blanca, can be reached with some difficulties over bumpy gravel roads. Since these beaches, who are left in there natural state, are part of the Monumento Natural de los Ajaches, a kind of road charge has to be paid upon entering by car. Various beaches that arehidden behind the collective name Playas de Papagayo, are very popular with the Lanzaroteños and the tourists.  Beautiful white, gently sloping sand beaches with crystal clear water.

Playa Quemada: Playa de la Arena

Black sand beach in the south of Playa Quemadas. During low tide is the beach, along the shore, easily accessible, however during high tide you have to take the food path through the rocks.

Nudism in Lanzarote

The Charco del Palo is located a few kilometres from the village of Mala, it is the only official nudist beach and community in Lanzarote. There is a nudist zone open toward the Atlantic Ocean, everybody can feel free to move around as he pleases. The small bay protects the nude bathers from the rough sea, winds and the curious eyes of others.But generally, only nudists find the way to here.

Unofficially, people bath at the Playas de Papagayo. In particular at the bays

la Playa del Pozo and Playa de Mujeres is nude swimming and sunbathing tolerated.

At these beaches, a little consideration should be given, even though many locals swim and sunbathe nude too.

In the rear of the beach of Famara, nudism is practised as well.

The towering rocks are protecting against the wind and provide intimacy.

This part is not an official naturist area.
