This could be a popular rental property or residence in the sought after area of Caleta de Famara.
The small fishing village of Caleta de Famara has achieved worldwide recognition as a surfers paradise.
With the beach of San Juan playing host to international surf competitions and the geographic position creating ideal conditions, it is a magnet for the European surfing community
On the North-West coast of Lanzarote — in the municipio of Teguise — Famara occupies a large, curving bay with many kilometres of beaches.
It is somewhat out on a limb with the road from Teguise
A staggeringly beautiful place, in fact Cesar Manrique — the island’s prodigal son — loved the place, having spent many summers there as a child.
While there are surf shops, three small supermarkets and a number of seafood restaurants, it is in many respects far removed from the hustle and bustle to be found in the main resorts, on the opposite side of Lanzarote.
This is the original fishing village and harbour — Caleta literally meaning small port — that has existed for many years.
It is a laid back place which does not appear to have kept pace with developments in the rest of the island at all.
Streets are covered in sand and it has a small harbour, which is nowadays mainly used by locals to launch their private leisure boats, as opposed to the small commercial fishing vessels which were the lifeblood of Famara in days gone by.
Famara enjoys possibly one of the longest stretches of beach on the island of Lanzarote, curving round under the cliffs, which stand like sentinels protecting it from the rest of the island.
If you go in the late evening in the Autumn months, you will be blessed with some fantastic sunsets, as the sun slowly sinks into the Atlantic.
Apart from the obvious attractions of surfing and kitesurfing, Famara is also a great base for walking.
The high cliffs also draw hangliders and paragliders in the Autumn / Winter months, when the thermals make for excellent flying conditions.
