El Salado



This is one of the few beaches in La Graciosa where nudism is not the norm (but possible). Although it is very close to Caleta del Sebo and the harbour, since there is not any paved road in the island you leave civilization behind as soon as you move west. Only the tourists enjoying the quietness. Long beach, very few people (except perhaps at the times the ferry arrives) atracted by the natural environment: clothes don't really seem to be required.

Last visited: november 2010




How to get there

You can only get to La Graciosa using the ferry that runs from Orzola, in northern Lanzarote to Caleta del Sebo. It takes only 20 minutes through a usually calm sea channel.
Once in the island, forget the car. Paved roads don't exist, and only a few local taxis can use the tracks. The best options to move to the beaches is to rent a bike, or simply to walk. El Salado is less than 1 km away along the coastline.

The beach

It is more than 1 km long, starting at the exit of the village. A sucession of sandy and rocky areas, it is difficult to define its width, but usually very narrow: just a few metres from the shore sand mixes with "jable" and the few plants able to survive in an island that recives so few rain. There is only a very wide section, separated from the sea by a flat rock.
Most people remains next to the village. The farther you move, the less people you find. Finally you can be virtually alone. However, being so narrow means that the people walking to the southernmost beaches have to pass close to you, and so you can't experience the celeb quietness of the rest of the beaches in La Graciosa. This is the price to be paid for avoiding a longer walk.


Facilities

Not much in the island, but everything (bars, shops...) is in the village. Outside, it is a virgin area without any facility.

Nudism

Not really common in this beach, but if we don't mind being seen (because there isn't any secluded place), nudism is acceptable. Maybe not in the busiest areas, but in the rest of the beach it is completely up to you to be naked or not.

I like:
  • Although not particularly here, the quietness and relaxed atmosphere in La Graciosa
I don't like:
  • Too many people walking around at the ferry arrival or departure times

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.
