Cesar Manrique remembered Famara with joy:
" My greatest happiness is to recall a happy childhood,five month summer vacations in the Caleta and the Famara beach with its eight kilometers of clean and fine sand framed by cliffs of more than four hundred meters high that reflected on the beach like in a mirror. That image has been engraved in my soul as something of extraordinary beauty that I will never forget in all of my life."
This Bohemian village of surfers and fisherman, is plenty of Surf and Kite school that offer daily lessons in the amazing sandy beach, surrounding from the cliff El Risco.
Playa Famara beach is never more than an 5 minute walk from away and most luxury bungalows are within an easy 5 minute walk of the beach. Many of the luxury bungalows are in enviable locations such as frontline to the beach or in an elevated situation with spectacular views to El Risco. There is a bar, restaurant, children’s playground and mini-market on the urbanization and internet connection (WIFI).
Captivating scenery and natural works of art can be found in the north of Lanzarote thanks to the island’s volcanic history and a little help from renowned artist and architect Cesar Manrique. Fascinating attractions like Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes are great places to visit. Don’t miss out the Mirador del Rio, a spectacular viewpoint – also built by Manrique – blending harmoniously with its surroundings and providing breathtaking views over La Graciosa and the other islets of the Chinijo archipelago.
Along the shore of the northernmost tip, which is largely undeveloped, you will find some small, idyllic fishing villages such as Arrieta and Orzola, boasting some nice seafood restaurants, excellent stops for lunch or a cool drink.
Lanzarote is a a gift of nature and without any doubt an incomparable paradise combining the magic of its history with an enviable spring climate throughout the year, beautiful beaches and breathtaking landscapes, a paradise of unique nature which friendly people proved to know how to take care of.
Lanzarote is a volcanic island, largely covered by lava fields caused by volcanic eruptions in the eighteenth century. Lanzarote was the second Biosphere Reserve in the Canaries, adding a new component:for the first time was declared by UNESCO a territory as a whole, including all of its population centers. The perfect symbiosis achieved in Lanzarote between man and nature is without any doubt the main cause of this international recognition.
On the island you will find amazing beaches, secluded coves, trekking path, bike rentals, many surf, kite and windsurf schools, scuba-diving, boat trips. You could do some climbing up to the Volcanoes, relax in one of the amazing SPA or practice Yoga during the sunset.
