If you’re looking for something a little different, and want to get a feel for the variation of landscape on this fantastic island, then you should head for Playa Quemada. Not the typical blue and yellow beach of the brochures, this wild black sand beach is much less touristy but stunning in its own natural way. Enjoy the company of the locals as you stroll along this unique coastal area, as it is their beach of choice.
This is not the beach for you if you are looking to relax. For those travelling with children however, this popular spot in the Costa Teguise is great. The waves are good here and there are loads of windsurfers and water sports schools. There are many bars and cafes here so you can quite easily spend all day at the beach with everything you need within reach.
This isn’t a specific beach, but an area where you can find some wonderful hidden treasures. Tucked away towards the north of the island, you will find the region of Orzola and its stunning, tropical looking beaches, with white sand and bright blue, perfectly clean waters. Away from the tourist hotspots you can easily find a place all for yourself.
Whether you go to Lanzarote specifically for the beaches, or are heading to the area on a hiking or sight seeing trip, you must visit its beautiful coast. There are so many beaches to choose from that your only problem will be being spoilt for choice.
