La Francesa Beach

A white sandy beach on the island of La Graciosa
On the northeast of Lanzarote is the little island of La Graciosa. In a space of scarcely 30 square kilometres, it prides itself on a coastline full of coves and untouched beaches, among which La Francesa stands out above all others. With its fine white sand in sharp contrast to the turquoise blue of the sea, it forms the shape of a horseshoe facing south which means the sea is almost always calm. And since it is situated in the south of La Graciosa, it has breathtaking views of the sea strait and the gigantic wall of natural stone that make up the cliffs of Famara on the northeast coast of Lanzarote.
An unspoilt beach with an anchor area near Lanzarote
La Francesa is an unspoilt beach about two kilometres from Caleta de Sebo, the capital of the island of La Graciosa. After less than an hour’s walk along a dirt track bordering the coast, you will find yourself on this unspoilt beach. It is divided in two by an area of rocks which at high tide fills the bay to form a lagoon of still water. La Francesa beach also has an anchor area which allows the visitor to spend the day on his or her own boat moored on an island away from the world.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants from the environment.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not use soap or gel in the showers located at the entrance to the beach.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
- Pets are prohibited at most beaches. Make sure you can take them beforehand.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.) or activities that might be bothersome, such as ball games.
