Papagayo Beaches

The Beaches of Papagayo

Explore Lanzarote’s finest beaches

Papagayo Beaches. With its chain of clean sandy beaches surrounded by many small coves

The clear turquoise waters make up the paradise of  Playas de Papagayo.

With its long chain of clean sandy beaches enclosed by many small cliff coves, (perfect for a friendly bit of shade) the clear turquoise waters make up the hidden paradise of  Playas de Papagayo.

Papagayo is within the Los Ajaches Natural Park and with the breathtaking backdrop of the Ajaches mountains, it is really not to hard to see why this is a photographer’s or artists dream landscape.

The few sheltered coves usually keep the waters calm, making it a great spot for families to hang out. The crystalline waters of Papagayo also make it the perfect place for a snorkel.



At the very end of the beach towards the east end is a camping area set back from Playa de Puerto Muelas. It is not a large campsite but has adequate basic facilities that include electricity points and a shower/toilet area. If you are going to camp make sure to bring any essentials items with you, including food and water.(do not forget water!)

It is important to remember that you DO need prior authorisation from the local council and must be obtained before you stay there.

On your way to the beach, if you are interested you can always stop and see what the island looks like underneath the lava by visiting Cueva de los verdes or Jameos del Agua.
