A must if you are in the south part of Lanzarote. The beaches are part of a protected area so where the hotels and bungalows ends it is about 2 km walk on dirt road. The tide was low when we were there so beach was enormous which ment that it wasn't crowded at all. There are no thai women... More

These beaches are well worth a visit. You really need a car to get to them and the access road is an uneven track. There are two bars/restaurants on the cliff top.

.... nearly wild, without the service. Some basic one you can find in the restaurant at the top of the cliff.

Such a lovely find! Looks just as it does on the pictures and to the right of it, down the hill there is another beach, a soft golden sand. Lots of places to take breathtaking photos at. However, you should check out beaches by Orzola if you want that clear blue water and white sand...I thought those were absolutely breathtaking... More

You have to pay €3 to park at this beach however you get access to about 6-7 beaches. All are beautiful and as there are so many you can chose one out of the wind. We found a beautiful sandy beach the sea was warm and the sun was hot. Take a snorkel so many fish :)

On advice of holiday rep, decided to go to this set of beaches. Our accomodation was 10 minute taxi drive (About 5 euros) away. Dropped off outside Sandos Papagayo hotel and then took short walk down clifftop to the first beach. Long and wide with beautiful sand and clear but very cold water. Small van on site selling drinks and... More

€3 to take car and park near beach but well worth it! It's a very bad road so drive slowly over the bumps! Very steep steps to beach and not suitable for disabled. Beach itself is very clean and good sand. Sea was warm - 3.12.15. We didn't go far out because it felt like there was current. The beach... More
