Excursion to Famara Beach

In the north-west of the island of Lanzarote, barely half an hour from the port of Arrecife, there are 5 endless kilometres of golden sand, known as Famara Beach. It is located within the Chinijo Archipelago Nature Reserve, between the fishing village of La Caleta de Famara and the base of the impressive Famara Cliffs. At low tide, when the water forms a thin layer on the sand and reflects the sky and the cliffs like a giant mirror, we can appreciate all the beauty of this wild, free beach even
Sports, relaxation and typical cuisines in La Caleta de Famara
Famara Beach is the ideal scenario for water sports such as surfing, bodyboarding, windsurfing and kitesurfing, thanks to the constant waves and wind there. Or even for air sports such as hang gliding, using the top of the Famara Cliffs as a take-off area. But it is also ideal quiet day of sunbathing and swimming, strolling along the shore and relaxing, especially at low tide, when the ocean draws back and enormous ponds remain all along the shore with calm, shallow water. After a day at the beach, there is nothing better than a delicious fish dish on the terrace of any of the restaurants in the nearby fishing village of La Caleta de Famara.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- 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.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- 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'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
