Lanzarote Beaches – Haria

lanzarote-beaches-hariaHaria is the very most northerly of Lanzarotes 7 towns. It could thank the Sahara Desert along with strong winds for what many deem Lanzarote preferred coastlines.

The complete coastline is named Malpaís de la Corona (“badlands”) and is strewn with white and golden sand what mixes intimately with volcanic magma making little sheltered coves (a number of which are contained within this post), which are perfect for swimming. This preominently rural region harbours a number of the organic marvels of Lanzarote for example, Jameos del Agua along with La Cueva de Los Verdes.
Our very first regarding 5 coastlines being reviewed within this place is referred to as El Caletón Blanco (“The big inlet”) measuring half a kilometre in length and 9 m. wide, being made up of beautiful white sand.

Camping out is even permitted on the beach, however you’ll have to secure previous community confirmation at the Lanzarote Town Council (Cabildo). There is plenty of space for vehicle parking and the guaguas (autobus) also stops here.

Our next coastline is known as El Risco, measuring 845m in length and 8m wide also featuring fine white sand. This coastline becomes pretty windy, yet Isla Graciosa shelters it somewhat against the rougher waters. It is a 400m climb down (as well as back up!), therefore not for the faint hearted. The waves are usually moderate.

Our next Coastline is known as Caleta Caballo, that measures 60 m long and 7m wide and consisting of white sand with pebbles. It is windy with medium waves offering excellent conditions for windsurfing. It is easy to get to with guaguas (autobus).

Our next Oceanfront in this vicinity is called Caleta del Mojón, measuring 100 m long and 13m wide and featuring fine white sand and also picon (the little black lava stones 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 help make this a great practising ground before you take on the more powerful waves in other places within the area. Unlike the various other rural coasts, this is in a semi-urban area, features a promenade as well as services like bistros, catering stands, telephones, car park area, bathrooms even a kids’s play area. It is easy to get to via guaguas (autobus).
