Set in Los Ajaches Nature Reserve near the southern tip of Lanzarote is El Papagayo beach. Actually there are four beaches collectively termed the Coasta de Papagayo but it is Playa de la Cera that is the best known. Frequently described as the most beautiful beach on Lanzarote Papagayo comprises a small crescent of white sand protected by cliffs to either side. Unlike many of the islands beaches Playa de la Cera has a cove like feeling. Whilst this is generally a good thing it can make it feel a little claustrophobic in the peak season when visitors from the nearby Playa Blanca resort pile down to the beach. Still on the right day it's a great spot to lounge around on the beach looking across to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura and cooling off in the clear blue sea.
