Famara …a surf and beach-lover’s
Lying on the North-west coast of Lanzarote, Famara comprises two
parts: the fishing village of La Caleta de Famara, and
the Famara Bungalows, including Casa Chicho, which lie
on the lower slopes of the cliffs.
The long, sandy beach stretches as far as the eye can see, edging the
base of the cliffs and punctuated by zocos, small stone circles that
provide shelter from the sometimes stiff Atlantic breezes and the
perfect place to build up that all-over tan. Not surprisingly, this
beach doesn’t get crowded; despite its popularity with surfers, there’s
plenty of beach to go round.
La Caleta de Famara
La Caleta de Famara retains the charm of an old Canarian fishing
village. With half a dozen restaurants and a couple of bars, La Caleta
de Famara is a world away from the main tourist resorts of Puerto del
Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca on the East coast of Lanzarote.
