Welcome to SunnyLanzarotedotcom
Orzola has two wonderful beaches, both
having extremely different characteristics. Take the road
from Arrecife to Tahiche, and turn towards Mala. There are several excellent Cesar Manrique structures along this
route not to miss... The Cactus Garden, Jameos del Agua, Cuevas de los Verdes -
all well worth a visit.
If you take the drive up north, as you approach Orzola, you will occasionally see a few cars parked on the side of the road. These are parking places for small beaches that you can only access by walking the last hundred meters. Well worth the time and effort. Just south of Orzola you will find a really nice, small, quiet beach named Caleton Blanco. If you miss the turn off (which is quite likely) no problem. When you arrive in Orzola, turn around and go exactly one kilometer past the sign which indicates the Orzola town limit. The entrance is the dirt road on the left hand side.
The white buildings of Orzola with a backdrop of the black cliffs of Famara is quite spectacular. Be careful you don't get your towel wet through - the tide comes in very fast, as this beach is fairly flat!!
This beach is not known by many people, mostly due to the fact that it is very difficult to find!! From Mala, continue north into Orzola, and you will come to a T junction. Turn right, and then turn first left after about 100 yards. This small road turns into a dirt road. Follow the dirt road towards to cliffs, where it ends at a wonderful, clean crescent beach. The beach is a bit smaller at high tide, but amazing at low tide. Last time we were there, it was really busy. We had to share about 1 kilometer of beach with four other people! Not recommended for swimming though, as there is a pretty aggressive undertow here!
