WALK SUMMARY

This sandy yet still volcanic desert island has a very different feel from the rest of Lanzarote. 

While it isn’t the best available walking, it makes a lovely change as you wander along empty sandy tracks to check out superb, beaches, sand dune,a  lagoon and little volcanoes. It would make a lovely day away, which Walkopedia regrets not having time for. 

Long and short walks available. The long (19km) circuit won’t feel too onerous if you give it all day, with plenty of stops for beaches and feature-admiration on the way.

This is strenuous walking. Come prepared, including carrying enough water.

There are reasonably frequent ferries, but plan your time carefully so as not to get stuch on the island!

Lanzarote– Sunflower guides: 31 varied walks, including on La Graciosa and ferry information. Recommended. Find relevant books on Amazon.

Our friends and partners Responsible Travel have a selection of holidays here.
