Riding the waves of Caleta de Famara

If ocean views and world-class surf are what you're after from that next villa, Caleta de Famara holiday rentals are ready to oblige. Straddling the high coastal mountains and wave-bashed bays of north-west Lanzarote, it sits where the roaring Atlantic makes its mark on the Canaries. Long-haired board riders aren't the only folk you'll find wandering the sandy streets, though. There are foodies who come for the seafood tavernas. There are hikers with their eyes fixed doggedly on mighty Timanfaya to the south. And there are families, eager to find a stay with a pool away from the bustling resorts.

Things to do

Caleta de Famara has the mountains

Aside from being a world-famous surfing mecca, Caleta de Famara is also the gateway to Lanzarote's less-trodden western coast. That means wild peaks that soar straight from the ocean. It means carved volcanic ridges that look like something straight from Mars. It also means the breathtaking Timanfaya National Park, which lurks to the south of the town with its mythical Fire Mountains and spurting geysers, deep craters and geothermal wonders. A wander through the interpretive exhibits at Mancha Blanca is a good place to start.


Surf's up in Caleta de Famara

For many, wave-washed Caleta de Famara holiday rentals by the ocean have just one purpose – a place to stash the board and sleep between sessions on the waves. To channel your inner bodacious dude or dudette, why not hit the countless local surf schools that line the bay? They offer surfing tuition for all levels, along with equipment rental and safety training. And if you're already tearing up the rollers, you could join the pros down on the tubes of El Quemao – it's one of the Canary's most challenging swells.


When the waves are high in Caleta de Famara

Caleta de Famara holiday rentals by Caleta beach are hot property all year round. The summer months, between June and August, see them fill up with holidaymakers looking to lay their towel on some of the more secluded sand on Lanzarote. The winter, meanwhile, is high time for the surfers. The Atlantic swell peaks in the months of November, December, January and February, drawing world-famous riders to the main beach and the rollers of El Quemao. Come then if you're eager to challenge yourself on the waves.

Natural features

Lanzarote's wild side in Caleta de Famara

Opting to hop over to Caleta de Famara's side of Lanzarote can be a brave choice. You'll be trading in palm-shaded beaches of glowing sand for something altogether more rugged and wild. Just one glimpse of the roaring swells that crash against the rocky outcrops of El Quemao is enough to testify to that, while even the high rollers of Caleta beach can send shivers up the spine. The ocean's only half the story, though. High peaks and sheer-cut cliffs rise in the other direction, eventually leading to the volcanic craters of Timanfaya – a land of fire and smoke.
