Located in the north of Lanzarote, Risco Beach occupies a wonderful stretch of coastline that extends under the Famara cliff to form one of the most beautiful, quiet beaches on the island.
Risco Beach at a glance
Risco Beach is an unspoilt beach that offers wonderful views and a coastal strip of golden sand that's practically untouched and is hidden under the steep cliffs that overlook the island of La Graciosa.
This beach offers the perfect combination for hiking enthusiasts who, as well as enjoying the scenery, can admire the vibrant landscapes.
As you might expect, there's no difference between visiting Risco Beach during the high season or the low season. No matter the time of year, you'll find yourself in a place where you'll enjoy the pleasure of being practically alone.
How to get to Risco Beach
Risco Beach is one of the most isolated and complicated beaches to get to on the island. This also makes it a truly relaxing spot. To get there, you'll need to drive to the village of Yé near the Mirador del Río.
Once there, Risco Beach can only be reached on foot along a coastal path. This walk will take around 1 hour, but the spectacular views will be worth it!
Make sure you wear appropriate walking shoes, as the steep and stony path would be difficult to walk in flip-flops.
