Yaiza’s beaches make one of the main attractions of Lanzarote. On the south of the island, they are a heaven bathed by the sun and calm waters, inviting to relax and enjoy yourself with your family. The best beaches in Lanzarote are Blanca and its marina, Flamingo, Papagayo or Las Coloradas, in a well-preserved natural environment with comfortable facilities available.
Main beaches in Yaiza:
- Playa Blanca: The coastal resort in the south of Lanzarote owes its name to this small beach in the centre of town, along a sea promenade. Scuba divers can enjoy the wonderful sea bottom and holidaymakers can have a refreshing drink on the outdoor terrace bars.
- Papagayo beach: Papagayo is the best-known beach in south Lanzarote and it is considered to be the best in the area. Located to the west of Playa Blanca, it has dreamy golden sands under a bright, sunny sky. Papagayo is a safe beach for children and a nice place to spend a day in the sun with your beloved one. The calm turquoise blue sea turns Papagayo into a true paradise.
- Flamingo beach: Flamingo too is to the west of Playa Blanca. It is 200m long and offers sunbathers soft white sands. The beach is protected from the wind by a line of lovely palm trees and from tidal currents by a breakwater. Offering all the necessary facilities and services, it is bordered by a nice promenade.
- Las Coloradas beach: Las Coloradas is a quiet, untamed beach in the south of Lanzarote. It has dark sand in spite of being very close to Playa Blanca (meaning ‘white beach’) and spans a 400m shoreline. It has moorings as well.
