One of Lanzarote’s best kept secrets has to be La Graciosa Island, just north of Lanzarote. The island is made entirely from volcanic rock and its long stretch of beaches are shaped by fine white sand dunes, making it an ideal day out for couples seeking a bit of seclusion away from the hustle and bustle of Lanzarote’s main resorts.
Caleta del Sebo
The small islands population is just 600, all living in the islands only village, Caleta del Sebo, where the ferry from Lanzarote docks. The charming village has a handful of simple restaurants down by the harbour, with the freshest fish and seafood always on the menu.
On a windy day, Caleta del Sebo can seem a cross between a bare Moroccan village and a sand-swept Wild West outpost - this place is worlds away from Lanzarote’s busiest resorts.
La Graciosa is the perfect day trip for the beach lover with the most famous beach, Playa de las Conchas, a good hour's walk from the village. Other beautiful beaches closer to the village include Playa Francesa and Playa de las Cocinas, both of which are sheltered and have stunning views back towards the Famara cliffs on Lanzarote.
