Beaches in Lanzarote

I have listed the most beautiful beaches in Lanzarote for you. Lanzarote has various types of beaches, they have beautiful sandy beaches, but also the volcanic beaches are definitely worth a visit.

All sandy beaches on Lanzarote are artificial and can be found mainly in the well-known seaside resorts, the beaches are generally clean and well-maintained, but you should keep in mind that most beaches have few facilities.

Bars located close to the beach

Because Lanzarote has beautiful beaches and attractions, tourism is always good on this island, it is always nice and cozy and there is plenty to do on this beautiful island.

At the large beaches and seaside resorts there are several bars and restaurants located close to the beach, but on the beach itself you are generally on your own in the sense that it is convenient to bring your own drinks and food.


An overview of the most beautiful beaches of Lanzarote:

1. Playa de los Pocillos

In terms of size, this is the largest beach in Lanzarote and the beach is also equipped with various conveniences such as sunbeds and umbrellas, this really for a small amount.

It is a beautiful large and wide sandy beach where a breeze blows all day long, making it a wonderful place to stay, especially during the hot summer days. This is also the beach where you generally have enough space to lie quietly and not have to take a seat among the crowds.

2. Playa Grande

The most famous and generally the busiest beach in Lanzarote, this is of course partly because this beach is located at the popular resort of Puerto del Carmen, just like Playa de los Pocillos, only the latter is a bit more outside the crowds.

The Playa Grande is located right on the shopping boulevard of Puerto del Carmen and therefore there is also plenty of restaurants in the area. So if you want to have a nice lunch in between, that is no problem from this beautiful golden beach.

3. Playas del Papagayo

If you prefer a bit more tranquility then this series of beaches is really something for you, because the Playas de Papagayo are a collection of beaches that lie next to each other and are surrounded by rocks, so you are generally out of the wind and beautiful sandy beaches here which are almost white, it is wonderful to stay here.

These beaches are also frequently used by families because the children can enjoy themselves here and can be closely monitored. In short, highly recommended when you go on holiday with your family.

4. Playa Flamingo

According to many, this is Lanzarote’s family beach and is located near the popular resort of Playa Blanca. It is a large sandy beach which is also built in an artificial bay.

As a result, the beach runs slowly into the ocean and there is also little to no current in the water, making it a lot safer for your child. The beach is also fully equipped and is located on a promenade which has various eateries and bars. In short, this beach is also highly recommended if you are going on holiday with your family.
