Bodyboarding in la Baja del Ganado

Untamed waves to the northwest of La Graciosa, Lanzarote
On the northwest coast of La Graciosa, a small island to the north of the island of Lanzarote, is the bodyboarding spot, la Baja del Ganado. Situated very near Las Conchas beach, it is a very wild wave which takes you on onto the open sea and which has spectacular views of Alegranza islet. You get there by taking a dirt track northwards from Caleta de Sebo, the capital of the island. It is a spot for experts, but one with easy entry into the water, where you feel the strength of the Atlantic hitting a coastline surrounded by volcanoes.
A spot for expert bodyboarders
Baja del Ganado has a very strong wave on a volcanic bed which breaks from the right. Its tube is short but very explosive due to the fact that the waves hit the coast violently making it a spot for experts. Although it is very constant throughout the year, you will find the best waves from September to May. Ideal conditions are at high tide with a S-SW-SE wind and a swell from a N-NE-NW direction but be reminded to take precautions since there are strong currents when the swell is big.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- 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.
- 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'.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
