Caleta de Famara


Lanzarote used to be known to me as 'Lanzagrotty'; a holiday destination for chavy Brits, with unattractive black sandy beaches and more Irish Pubs than Dublin. But actually, do you know what? Lanzarote is an amazing, beautiful island with a moon-like landscape and some of the best surfing and kite-surfing (in particular) conditions I've ever seen.

Caleta de Famara is situated in a pocket on the North-West coast of the island; a horseshoe sandy bay, backed by dunes and a massive and quite spectacular mountainous landscape. The beach has several breaks along it's length, some over reef, some over sand. Towards the Northern edge of the beach is the place to kite-surf.

There is free parking, but can get busy at weekends and can only imagine peak season get's a bit hectic. There are no facilities other than a manned lifeguard post, but you can get everything you need in the small village of Famara. A variety of Surf Schools work out of the village, and you can also hire boards, suits and other equipment here.
