We stayed at the Sandos Resort so it was a short walk across the waste area to this lovely beach. There wasn't lots of people enjoying it but be prepared to see some nudity, especially old men! Definitely a lovely place to spend some time.

We found this beach on trip advisor and decided to take a look. We were not disappointed. Amazing views, fantastic beach and the location was divine. Great cafe and restaurant overlooking the beach serving great food at high but expected prices. Would return and recommend.

Despite a horrible drive from Playa Blanca to here, where you have to drive through proper volcanic desert, it is totally worth the amazing views, beautiful untouched beaches and tranquility. Also because of this not many people will be there, also in Lanzarote in general,...More

Some beaches are worth seeing no matter how difficult they are to reach. One such hidden gem is Playa de Papagayo. The beach does not lie within the accessible belt of tourists. Car is must and you should be prepared to take the drive through...More

Not up to the beachfront because Papagayo Beach is located in a National Park But you can arrive to Playa Blanca and take a Taxi from rhere

I have visited Papagayo several times on previous visits, using hire cars, and there have been no problems. However in May 2016 I hired an ancient car from Orlando Rent a Car and returned it full of petrol and without any damage whatsoever. I now see from my credit card statement that 350euros have been taken from my credit card. On demanding an explanation, I was sent a photograph by Orlando of their vehicle in the car park at Papagayo. They informed me that I had breached their terms and that I was being charged for negligence and 'strain' on the car. Reading internet reviews of this company, I note widespread dissatisfaction amongst many customers who have had similar unwarranted deductions made from their credit cards. I understand that driving off-road invalidates one's insurance, should damage or an accident happen, but can see no justification for charging when no damage has been caused. Papagayo is a number one tourist attraction on Lanzarote which is visited by hundreds of cars. Although the access road is dusty, it has been improved recently and there are no damaging potholes. In fact the surface is quite smooth and better than many minor roads in the UK. I would be most interested to hear your comments. Thank you.
