Situated in the Chinijo Archipelago Natural Park (between the village of La Caleta de Famara and the cliffs of the Risco de Famara) lies an inlet of golden sand, five kilometres in length and known by the name of Famara. Its enduring image is of the mirror-like pool of water created as the tide goes out which reflects the cliff, as though allowing us a glimpse of another dimension of reality. If Papagayo is a calm place, Famara is the exact opposite: its powerful swell and the constant wind allows lovers of water sports, such as surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, to have the time of their lives. In the nearby village of La Caleta de Famara, there are plenty of restaurants to help visitors replenish the energy they have expended. To complete a day visiting Famara’s beaches, wait for sunset. Then you can admire the glorious colours of the sky and, on the horizon, the jagged silhouette of the Island of La Graciosa.
