Famara

Remote and undeveloped, yet easily accessible by car, those who love extreme sports or large empty beaches would say they are in paradise. Continuous intense wind and big waves make this beach ideal for surfing, windusurfing or kiteboarding. The rest of the people can partialy hide from  the wind (and the view) using the small stone walls to enjoy the sun and the incredible landscape.

Nude beach Famara (Lanzarote)

Nude beach Famara (Lanzarote)

How to get there
In the small village of Famara, turn right to the beach. This is the most populated area, and usually the road is full of parked cars (beware of getting trapped in the sand). At the end of the road, you find a group of bungalows. Continue uphill until the road becomes a bumpy track. Carefully, you can follow it towards the end of the beach. Here there is plenty of space to leave the car.

The beach
Apart from the problem with the wind and the waves (maybe this is what you are looking for), the most remarkable point in this beach is the length. Contrary to most beaches in Lanzarote, this is a continuous strip of golden sand more than 7 km long. Quite wide in the southern end, close to the village, the width decreases past the bungalows, and at the end you can only find peebles at high tide.
On the back of the beach, were stones predominate over small dudes, is where you can find those walls built by people using the black volcanic stones around. Each of them defines an area for one or two people to lay under the sun. Sometimes isolated, sometimes in groups or even sharing a wall for two of these shelters, not all of them offer the same amount of privacy.
The beach is just one of the atractions on this area of Lanzarote. It also worth the visit for the cliffs on the back of the beach, more than 600 m high. And in front of it, the small island of La Graciosa with its unspoilt beaches. The narrow strait between the two islands is one of the reasons for the dangerous currents here. Swimming is highly discouraged, specially on the wildest part of the beach.

Facilities
Not directly in the beach, but at the village and the bungalows you can find shops and places to eat or drink something. Nothing else from there to the north. There are lifeguards, usually restricted to the same "urban" area.

Nudism
Between the village and the bungalows, this is a textile beach. In the rest of the beach, clothing is completely optional. Since most sunbathers are hiden behind the stone walls, it is difficult to know, but I would say most of them are nude. It is less frequent to find anybody walking nude along the shore, but nobody cares about that.

I like:
  • The great landscape
  • The solitude
  • Long strolls along the shoreline
I don't like:
  • The track to reach the nudist part. It does not need to be paved, but some holes should be repaired
  • The strong wind

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
