Caletón Blanco Beach
This rocky and sandy spot means ‘big white cove beach’ in English, and it’s another of Lanzarote’s best family-friendly beaches. It’s on the island’s northern tip, just a couple of minutes’ drive away from the fishing village of Orzola.
In terms of facilities, there’s not much to speak of by way of bars and restaurants, so you’re best bringing your own food and drink if you’re settling down for the day. Thanks to the lack of amenities, this place rarely gets filled up with tourists, who tend to head for the livelier, bar-filled beaches along the coast, although there’s a handful of restaurants in Orzola, which is within easy walking distance. As you’d expect, fresh fish is one of the staple dishes there.
As for the beach itself, the turquoise water is sprinkled with rocks, so you’ll need to take extra care when going for a paddle, especially if you’ve got young children in tow. On the plus side, some areas of the water remain shallow, with the rocks providing a shelter in places.
