Famara Beach is in Lanzarote, Spain, on an island. It’s becoming a bit of a destination for surfers from around the globe, who affectionally call it the Hawaii of Europe. Check out why in this great video by Juan Rayos.
“Some months ago, Sergio from Zoopark Famara invited me to spend a couple of weeks in Lanzarote, to enjoy the island and his Surf and Kitesurf School. The experience was awesome and I couldn’t resist filming some images there, in a place that seems to be from another world, among its waves and volcanic landscapes.”
“Caleta de Famara is a small coastal village located on the north shore of Lanzarote, in the Natural Park of the Chinijo Archipelago, away from the island’s more touristy areas in the south,” explains Lanzasurf.com.
“In the last few years Famara has become the place to be for numerous surfers from all over the globe, who have come to check out the best beach and reef breaks of the island known as the “European Hawaii.”
“The 6-star ASP event La Santa Pro, leg of the world surfing championships, is held every year in October at the beautiful beach of San Juan, a few hundred meters away from the village.”
This sounds amazing, definitely a spot to visit if in Spain, and a place to journey to with your board if you surf.
