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.
