Papayago Beaches, located just outside of Lanzarote’s Playa Blanca are well worth the trek over the barren hills. It is also possible to get to the beaches by car, through only via a dirt track. Before starting our out trek, we always stock up on supplies of water, fizz for the kids, and a few beers from the HyperDino situated in Las Coloradas.
At the far end of the Papayago Beaches on a cliff top are two restaurants that serve Spanish Tapas.
Both restaurants are good, and both restaurants have stunning views.
It is worth getting to the restaurants at opening time to secure a table, otherwise there can be a lengthy wait.
The beaches which these restaurants overlook are generally very busy, the other beaches in Papayago are in my opinion far superior and only a 1o minute walk away.
On to the food porn, here we have Garlic Prawns in a delightful sauce. The chili’s give a bit of a zing. The family tucked into these before I could get a photo, it was delicious!
Canarian Potatoes – yes they are supposed to look wrinkled. The dipping sauce was divine!
Deep Fried Crisps, with a dipping sauce. Ordered this by accident as thought we were ordering chips. Was also nice though we won’t order this again.
Deep fried calamari – the kids tucked into these before I could get a photo. Again absolutely delicious. Served with lemon, we also made use of the dipping sauces.
We spent the rest of the day exploring the various beaches, swimming, catching some rays, and snorkelling. Then as the late afternoon began we started our trek back to Las Coloradas.
Papagayo Beaches was the original landing and settling point point for the Europeans in 1402. This monument was created in 2004.
These are the best beaches in Lanzarote – clean, unspoilt, and definitely worth the effort to get to – much better than the town beaches.
