How to get La Graciosa
There are daily flights from many Spanish towns and several European countries to Lanzarote. The island is closer than it seems.
From Lanzarote airport you take a Taxi to Órzola. Is the most northerly Village in Lanzarote.
There is also a regular bus service available to Órzola. From Órzola you catch the ferry to La Graciosa (there boat every 30 min).
The trip takes about 20 minutes and it costs you €20 with return. That is the price of traveling to paradise.
You (The King-The Queen)
Perfect! You are a Robinson Crusoe (or Robinson Girl) arriving into a forgotten paradise island. The 8th island of the Canaries. It´s perfect.
Listen! You are escaping from crowded cities and want to relax in a quiet and natural setting. Listen the silence.
Look this! You want to experience the raw overwhelming beauty of Lanzarote. Meet its people and appreciate its culture. Look all details.
Think about this. You are lava minded, oceanically prepared, volcanic ready and mojo proof.
Only for your eyes. You don’t mind the ongoing interior design trends among the local fishermen and agricultors (the owners of the apartments).
A piece of advice
Don’t bring any high heeled-shoes because all the streets are made of white sand. And don’t forget plenty of sun cream, hats and bathing-suits.
You in mind. You can rent a bike, get a guided tour in a land rover or walk around the island.
Write this down. You can sail, go hiking, promenades, mountain biking, snorkelling, surfing, windsurfing or kitesurfing. And to swim is apart from fishing. Of course!
The summer is warm, but not hot thanks to the breeze. The summer is nice all over.
Find your moment to enjoy this piece of the Canary Islands. You will have the feeling of being sweetly isolated.
