Surfers paradise and Lanzarote's most unspoilt beach.

I am no surfer, but love this unspoilt, windswept, brooding beach backed by the high rugged cliffs of Risco de Famara. Tucked away on the north west coast of the island, it has a real get away from it all feel, yet is also a magnet for surfing enthusiasts from around the world. The tiny fishing village and port of Caleta de Famara retains its traditional feel, with a handful of bungalows and bed and breakfasts catering to the steady stream of visitors. 

Value for money

Expert tips
