Unwind in the scenic surroundings of Papagayo Beach, a beach in a national park. If it is a clear day, look out to the islands of Puertito and Fuerteventura. The fine white sand and calm blue waters are ideal for relaxing and swimming. Though there is a cafe and bar for refreshments, compared to other beaches in Lanzarote this one has relatively few amenities, so come prepared. The short trek down to the beach might not be suitable for those with mobility issues or strollers. Plan my Lanzarote trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Bardzo ładna plaża, z krystaliczna wodą. Warto wziąć sprzęt do snoorkowania i popływać z ogromem kolorowych rybek. Bardzo wieje... more »Very nice beach, with crystalline water. It is worth to take the equipment to snoorking and swim with the huge colorful fish. Very blowing...
Laat je niet afschrikken door een paar kilometer aan zeer slechte weg en een “tol” poortje van €3. Door deze ingang kom je aan bij verschillende mooie baaitjes waarvan Playa de Papagayo er 1 van is.

Beautiful clear water and not mega pressure. Tip! Water shoes are convenient, there are all small pebbles in the water. Furthermore, unfortunately only no possibility to go to the toilet and to rinse.
Beautiful beach, postcard beautiful really! Well worth 3 euros and the 3km dirt track to get to it. A couple of nice little restaurants close by too
Nice place to go. Alone the road is a bit adventurous. You must be there for a sunset. If you would like to stay there longer to chill, you must bring your own food and drink because there is nothing there. But it has its charm.
