Lanzarote is recognized not only for its unique volcanic landscape but also for its stunning beaches. While there are popular beaches that attract tourists all year round, there are others less known but equally spectacular, which retain their natural state. These virgin beaches offer a more authentic and less commercial experience of Lanzarote. Today on our LastMinute Transfer blog, we discuss some of the most stunning virgin beaches of Lanzarote.
Discovering the virgin beaches of Lanzarote
We begin by discussing Playa de Papagayo. Although it is one of the most popular in Lanzarote, its somewhat restricted access has allowed it to retain much of its natural charm. With its fine golden sand and turquoise waters, Papagayo is a paradise that seems plucked from a postcard.
Adjacent to Papagayo, Playa de la Cera is less frequented and offers a quieter atmosphere. Its crystal-clear waters make it perfect for snorkeling, and its golden sand invites sunbathing.
On the other hand, Caleta del Congrio is one of Lanzarote’s most virgin beaches, accessible only on foot or by bicycle. It’s a small beach, with a mix of sand and pebbles, known for its peaceful atmosphere and distance from the hustle and bustle.
Located in the northwest of Lanzarote, Playa de Famara is a vast beach, very popular among surfers due to its waves. Although it has busy areas, it also has more isolated sections where you can find your own piece of paradise.
Lastly, located in the north of Lanzarote, the Caletones de Órzola feature white sand and clear waters and are undoubtedly a well-kept secret. They are ideal for those seeking a more intimate experience and direct contact with nature.
