White Sandy Beaches on La Graciosa Island

Since I spend my second winter half on Lanzarote it is obvious that I should see La Graciosa.

I don’t think you heard about this Island only if you have spent some time on Lanzarote, not that popular like La Gomera from Tenerife… It is just 2 kilometers from Lanzarote. The name means ‘graceful’ in Spanish (I like the sound of it:).

The island is really tiny, 8 km 4 km and there are only 700 inhabitants. It even has a school and supermarkets, you can also hire bikes here.  There are almost no cars here only the jeeps waiting for toursists at the harbour to take them around the island

10 photos to convince you to go to the Papagayo Beach

Papagayo Beach (Playa de Papagayo) is in the south of Lanzarote, it is one of the most popular beaches of the Island.

White sandy beaches & crystal clear water you can find here. The entrance to the Natural Monument of Los Ajaches is  3 EUR, there is enough parking place for a lot of visitors. There is a small restaurant on the hillside of the beach, from where there is a beautiful view over the bay. On foot you can walk to different secluded beaches, almost nobody is there so you won’t be disturbed at all. Many excursion ships come by, catamarans, sailing ships, you can take nice photos of ships too 🙂

The Top Most Beautiful Beaches on Rhodes

I spent a whole summer in Rhodes this year, so I had plenty of time to discover the island. I listened to my collegues/friends as well while talking about what to see, they gave me many tips too. I like to see all the famous places, nice sights everyone talks about.

Rhodes is famous for its clear and mostly calm beaches. Most of the sandy beaches are on the Eastern part, on the Western side are pebbly beaches.

Some of the top ones are the followings:

  • St Paul’s Bay

In my opinion the most beautiful one, my favourite one 🙂 It is in a small bay, above is the Acropolis of Lindos, below the sea a sandy beach and a little church. There are a lot of ships doing day excursions and many diving companies come here too. A sunbed can cost a fortune, even 7-10 EUR. There is a small restaurant, the food is delicious. There are many times weddings in the small church, the ceremony is outside the church, in front of it. You can park above the church in the parking area (enough place for a lot of cars) or you can drive a bit further to the „entrance” of Lindos and there is a parking area as well and there is a smaller beach too.
