In the north-west of Lanzarote is the village of Famara, which stretches for 5 km of sandy beach. From here, the terrain rises to steep cliffs. There are several paths between them and the ocean.

Sand dunes

We drive through the village of Caleta de Famara and after a short detour we park by the sand dunes, where the long beach Famara begins.

Famara Bungalows

We are going up along the development of holiday homes, a popular place to stay for water sports enthusiasts. At the end of the development, we turn north along a dirt carriageway, rising to the cliffs.

Witness of the past

The carriage gains altitude meters and with them opens a view of the coast. On the right appears the ruins of a building, perhaps a small church, who knows. I always have the question, what was the history of this place and the people who belonged to it?

Atlantic coast

As we continue to climb, more and more distant hills appear along the coast of Lanzarote. In the middle of the distance between the coast and the cliffs of Famara, we turn onto a narrow path leading back down to the ocean.

Coast

The road along the Atlantic back to Famara Bungalows closes this small circuit. Many people are not here, for ordinary tourists it is a bit out of hand.

The objects on the coast are really in close contact with the beach and sand dunes. For a snack, head back a few hundred meters to Caleta de Famara.
