Playa Francesa - 2017

Graciosa

Playa Francesa - 2017

A visit to Lanzarote, especially if staying in the north of the island, is not complete without a visit to the island of Graciosa, just off the northern tip of Lanzarote. Ferries leave Orzola and return there throughout the day.

 

The journey to Graciosa takes around thirty minutes and ends at the harbour at Caleta del Sebo, the only town - little more than a village really - on the island. Caleta del Sebo has several cafés - one of which sells some delicious ice cream - and some holiday rental properties.

 

There are several beaches on Graciosa, all of which can be used nude, and even the walk to them can be done nude once away from the village. We have only visited one of the beaches, but hope to see the rest on future visits to the island.

We settled on the middle of the three little beaches. There were not many people there, but most of them were wearing some form of swimming costume: the only nudes were ourselves and a young couple, but nobody seemed to mind. We were amused by one elderly lady who stood up to strip off completely and then put on a one-piece costume to lie in the sun.

 

The sea was calm and we were able to enjoy snorkelling, seeing ten different species of fish in a fairly small area of the sea - probably no bigger than a couple of tennis courts.

 

While we were there a couple of catamarans anchored offshore and the passengers - all dressed - were ferried ashore for a couple of hours or so for a picnic and some organised games. When they left it all became peaceful again.

Playa Francesa is a delightful trio of sandy beaches, separated by rocks, around a small cove about two miles from the southern end of Caleta del Sebo - to the left as the ferry enters the harbour. The path is sandy, as are all the roads and paths away from the harbour, and mostly level so the walk is not arduous. Indeed the walk can be made more pleasant by stripping off once clear of the town. The few people who saw us didn't seem bothered by our nudity.

During the day one of us walked over the nearby headland to see what the adjacent Playa de la Cocina was like. That meant walking along the back of the beach where a catamaran had just disgorged its passengers. A few people looked and a few pointed, but no one seemed unduly upset at seeing a nude walker - they seemed rather amused. Playa de la Cocina was small and down a steep path, so we decided to stay where we were.

 

There are no facilities at the beach, not even shade, so take everything that you are likely to need with you.
