Lanzarote's top family friendly beach is large and lots of fun.

'Big Beach' is, true to its name, larger than life. This huge expanse of sand has plenty of sunloungers to go round and entertainment for all. Younger kids tend to love the fun swan pedaloes; cooler teenagers can go for the watersports on offer, while parents wanting to relax can opt for a massage. I will be the first to admit that the beach does get crowded on a summer's day, but it's where the action is and there is never a dull moment. Whether you want an ice-cream or a dive into the deep, it is on your doorstep here.
