Playa de famara: 6km of beach

The surf in Lanzarote, and particularly the beach at Famara, have some of the most consistent conditions to be found in the Atlantic. Very few surf spots in the world can claim to have surf every day but this is one of the most important reasons for having our school at Famara.

The beach runs for 6km from the village so we can always find somewhere to surf!

Consistent surf conditions

The 6K stretch of sandy beach at Playa de Famara  gives us space, so we can always surf and coach surfing. This beach also picks up every possible North Atlantic swell. In summer we don’t face the N. Atlantic flat spells either as the N.East trade winds give us swell. We may also use the beaches of Playa de Canteria in Orzola and Playa de Garita in Arrieta. These are East coast beaches that work under different conditions.

We do not take you to the most serious reef breaks of our island. This is done out of respect to local surfers and we treasure the excellent relationship we maintain with them. The reefs here are often far too crowded and the nature of many of these breaks too dangerous for most surfers.

“In terms of wave quality, Lanzarote is the island to head to in The Canaries where its’ reputation for being the Hawaii of the Atlantic is well earned, as these volcanic islands have much in common with their Pacific cousins.”
