Autumn and winter are ideal times to visit the Canary Islands, because while temperatures drop considerably on the mainland, the archipelago enjoys the most pleasant temperatures. So, if you have the chance to make a getaway and you feel like enjoying the beach, we recommend that you visit one of the islands. One of our favourites is Lanzarote.

One of the best beaches on this Canary Island is Playa de Guacimeta, also known as Playa Honda. Would you like to discover it? Then come with us!

Constant presence of aeroplanes

Guacimeta Beach is located opposite Lanzarote airport. Therefore, despite being a quiet place, ideal for those looking for relaxation and long walks, there is a constant presence of aeroplanes. In fact, due to its proximity to the airport, you can watch an aeroplane just 100 metres above you as you sunbathe or take a dip in the sea. Many people visit this place just to have the sensation of being able to touch the planes with their fingertips.


An immense beach of toasted sand

As you can get an idea by taking a look at the pictures we show you in our gallery, it is a huge beach, with fine, toasted sand. Without a doubt, it is an ideal place for the little ones to run and play to their heart’s content.

An ideal beach for windsurfing

It is important to bear in mind that, as it is a windy beach, it is ideal for windsurfing, although the waves are calm. You should also know that its waters are warm. We leave you with our gallery below, where you will find more images of this beach located in Lanzarote. Don’t miss it!
