Caletón Blanco

Just like on other Canarian islands such as Gran Canaria and Tenerife, Lanzarote’s North coast’s a stretch of shoreline which many visitors miss out on as they head down to the resorts in the south of the island.

The fishing village of Órzola has a series of inviting coves on the eastern part of its coast, a natural feature which demands an outing to this area of the island. Among them Caletón Blanco stands out, it is the perfect name for this beach because of its perfectly clean white sand, unlike no other. A natural swimming pool of crystal clear water takes up most of this dream location dotted with volcanic lava.

It is quite wild and rugged with the imposing Volcano “La Corona” which is shaped like a crown on the left and beautiful sea views on the right.

Some areas of the beach are ideal for children as they are sheltered by the rocks, others are deeper and they are more suited to swimming in the cool open seas. To enjoy a swim in all its splendor, it is best to go at almost high tide. The beach has a good area for parking.

Its turquoise waters, tranquility, the quality of the natural sand and the almost guaranteed sunshine are priceless. The footpaths are suitably rustic to make you feel you are discovering a secret idyll but easily walked by even young children.
