Playa Flamingo

This 200-metre stretch of ice white sand is pulled right up to the calm, crystal clear sea on Lanzarote’s southern tip. 

It’s particularly popular with families, partly due to the breakwater in place, which helps to keep the waters calm, and partly due to the number of facilities and family-friendly amenities nearby.

Showers and sunbeds are just a couple of the nice-to-haves you’ll find at this beach, and there’s a lengthy palm tree-lined promenade behind it that’s smattered with restaurants, cafes and bars.

There’s also adapted access for people with reduced mobility, and lifeguards are on duty to keep an eye on swimmers. 

And perhaps most appealing of all, is that this beach rarely gets crowded, so if you’re after a tranquil spot for the whole family that’s away from the hustle and bustle of Lanzarote’s bigger beaches, this is a top pick.
