Situated at the northern tip of Lanzarote, this is one of our favourite beginner beaches in Lanzarote as it offers up perfect beach break waves with both lefts and rights providing the ideal platform for beginner surfers.
Waves start to form on an outer reef before they peel into the bay and lap up on the white sand, giving new surfers the chance to practice the basics before the ride ends.

Jameos Del Agua

Impressive left hander that breaks over a small patch of volcanic reef and sand, offering two sections for new surfers to practice on.
It’s not just the turquoise Atlantic waters that make this wave special; on the right day this spot can produce some of the longest waves on the island.

The perfect place to while away the day with plenty of restaurants and bars lining the beach as well as beach volleyball and football areas for a little fun in between the waves.
The wave itself is a fun beach break that offers a little bit more power than the other beaches, with both left and right handers scattered along this popular beach.

Las Cucharas

Mostly a sand bottomed break, and depending on the sea currents, the odd patch of lava reef. The wave itself is a left hand wall that on its day can produce rides that top 100m which work best at around waist to head high, ideal for beginner surfers as it doesn’t get too big.

This one-of-a-kind beach is a true beauty that is framed by the beautiful Risco Mountain which makes for a one-of-a-kind surfing experience.
The beach itself offers an abundant amount of peaks that offer short punchy left and rights as well as longer walls depending on the sand banks.
