Enjoyed this beach- plenty to do but the water clarity not as good as some others for snorkelling. Gets really deep out before the end of the rocky barriers.

A small man made beach partly rocky. There are a few bars and restaurants to visit plus a supermarket. Nothing to really shout about

My favourite beach in Playa Blanca, calm sea, plenty of restaurants, plenty of sunbeds and golden sands. Twenty minute walk into Playa Blanca.

Just another amazing little beach on Lanzarote. Perfect for those many hotels within 10/15 mins walking distance. Its a sort of little brother to Playa Dorada but just as lovely. Less of a sandy bottom but perhaps slightly warmer because of it.

Small white sand beach near Elba Lanzarote ( 6 min walking ) Fish in the sea and large ray fish on the shallow water. Two sunbeds - 12 euro per day. Good for kids as it is not too deep. Lifeguard service.

We were staying in the H10 Timanfaya Palace. This beach is about a 5/10 minute walk from the hotel and is really lovely to spend an hour or two on.

Difficult to get from the pavement to the beach if you have buggies etc but worth the effort. The beach has a man made breakwater which has created a nice little cove perfect for swimming with young children and the sea is teeming with fish...More

depending on how fast you walk it is 10 to 15 minutes. There are bars and restaurants at the marine walk alongside the Playa.
