Famara (Lanzarote)

Stretching along the northern coast of Lanzarote, Famara beach is one of the islands unknown treasures. The beach sits at foot of an imposing mountain range, which helps in providing a spectacular backdrop to the fabulous golden sands and cool turquoise water. Sand dunes shield the beach from the roads to ensure its natural beauty, as it runs along the coastline for what seems like miles on end. The limited facilities here at Famara means there are no sun loungers available for rent, so it is advised you take a towel along! Despite this, the beach is a popular spot for surfers looking to take advantage of the strong waves on offer, which are helped by the breeze blowing across the beach.
