La Garita Beach
La Garita Beach is a tranquil, semi-urban beach mostly visited by surfing enthusiasts. It has a length of 800 metres of golden sand dotted with pebbles that extends over the town of Arrieta, on the northeast coast of Lanzarote.
Forming part of a coastal strip dotted with small bathing areas such as the natural pools of Punta Mujeres or the coves of Charco del Palo, La Garita Beach is the largest beach to be found in the Arrieta area.
The beach is usually characterised by its well-known pier on which the fishermen stand, and is visited by many tourists who desire the eye-catching natural beauty it has to offer. There are showers, changing rooms and all kinds of restaurants in the vicinity.
La Garita Beach is one of the main beaches in the north of Lanzarote and the ideal option to complete a day's route around the main cultural centres of the north. You can also visit the nearby Jameos del Agua, the Cueva de Los Verdes, the Mirador del Río or the Cactus Garden.
How to get to La Garita Beach
The best way to get to La Garita Beach in Lanzarote is by car, or directly on foot if you're staying in Arrieta. If aren't planning to rent a car in Lanzarote, you can also get to La Garita Beach by bus, but this isn't recommended.
