Playa de Las Conchas
Playa de las Conchas lies on the northwest coast of the little island of La Graciosa, five kilometres along a gravel road from the ferry departure point back to Lanzarote. Its almost white sand stretches for 600 metres beside shallows the colour of turquoise. Reaching a maximum width of around 100 metres, Playa de las Conchas is surrounded by the red-tinted foothills of the volcano Montana Bermeja.
Meaning “mussel beach” because of the shells you’ll find here, Playa de las Conchas is pristine, and has few facilities. While a stunning place to spend a few hours, swimming is strongly advised against because of the steepness of entry into the Atlantic along with a strong undertow.
