Lanzarote Beaches – Haria
Haria is the very most northern out of Lanzarotes numerous municipalities. It may give thanks the Sahara Desert and powerful winds of what some deem Lanzarote preferred coastlines.
The whole entire shoreline is known as Malpaís de la Corona (“badlands”) and is sprinkled with white and golden sand in which mingles intimately with volcanic lava forming small snug bays (a number of which are featured in this short article), in which are excellent for swimming. This preominently outlying region harbours a number of the organic wonders of Lanzarote which include Jameos del Agua and La Cueva de Los Verdes.
Our very first regarding 5 beaches being discussed around this particular spot is known as El Caletón Blanco (“The big inlet”) measuring half a kilometre in length and 9 m. wide, consisting of fine white sand.
Camping out is also allowed upon the beach, however you’ll want to secure previous community permission at the Lanzarote Town Council (Cabildo). Generally there is sufficient space for vehicle parking and also the guaguas (autobus) also stops here.
Our next coast is called El Risco, measuring 845m in length and 8m wide and consisting of fine white sand. This coast becomes very windy, although Isla Graciosa shields it somewhat from the rougher oceans. It is a 400m climb down (also back up!), so not for the faint hearted. The waves are usually gentle.
Our next Beach is referred to as Caleta Caballo, that measures 60 m long and 7m wide and comprising of white sand along with pebbles. It is gusty with moderate waves providing good conditions for windsurfing. It is accessible with guaguas (autobus).
Our next Oceanfront within this vicinity is called Caleta del Mojón, which measuers 100 m long and 13m wide and featuring fine white sand and also picon (the very small dark lava pebbles typically spotted in patio or gardens).
Our 5th and final Beach here is called La Garita, which measures 810m long and 5m wide and consisting of fine white/golden sand. Calm waters make this a very good practising ground before you embrace the stronger waves in other places throughout the area. Unlike the various other rural beaches, this is in a semi-urban area, features a promenade and services like bistros, refreshment stands, telephones, parking area, restrooms and also a children’s play area. This is accessible by guaguas (autobus).
