How to go to La Graciosa from Lanzarote

Arrive at La Graciosa from Lanzarote You’re pretty silly. the ferries to La Graciosa salen from Puerto de Órzola, the pueblo located more to the north of Lanzarote. To get an idea, you can arrive at this town by bus or “guagua” from Arrecife in approximately one hour (line 9). If you have a rental car, it takes a little more than 35 minutes from Arrecife. If you stay in the south, for example in Playa Blanca, the trayecto has the Órzola in a coach and is from around 1 hour.

Every day, with a frequency of approximately every 30 minutes, sale ferries from Puerto de Órzola to Caleta de Sebo, the main town of Isla de La Graciosa. He trayecto is 7 kilometers and the duration of the trip is only 30 minutes. That’s right, the boat moves and it tastes good. Keep in mind that in this area there are strong currents and weather conditions. To make up for it, the views that accompany you during the trail bordering the cliffs of the Mirador del Río are simply spectacular.

hay of the ferry companies that carry out the Lanzarote-La Graciosa trayecto: Líneas Romero and Biosphere Express. Both have the same price, only a sale at the hours in the point from the Puerto de Órzola and the other one to the media. It all depends on the season of the year you go. But, normally, every 30 minutes there is a ferry from Lanzarote to La Graciosa.

He price of the ferry ticket to La Graciosa directly in taquilla is 30 euros one way and return. But I have a truco for you, if you buy the ticket on the ferry to La Graciosa on the internet (page 100% reliable) you sell it for 26 euros one way and the ride. Children pay 13 euros one way and return and children under 3 years old travel free.

He first ferry sale from Órzola to las 7 de la mañana in summer, in winter to las 8. He last return ferry from La Graciosa to Lanzarote it is at 8.30 from the afternoon of the 1st of July to the 30th of October, at 7.30 from the afternoon of the 1st of April to the 30th of October and the rest of the year the last is at 5.30. Anyway, I recommend you to check timetables on the Ferryhopper website.

A very interesting point that I would like to comment on is that each ferry company has a reserved parking for the customers. In the port itself, there are workers who will tell you where to park the coach, just a few minutes from where they sell the ferries to La Graciosa.

How to get to La Graciosa from Lanzarote by catamaran

do you know that you cannot cross on the ferry to La Graciosa, your car and once you arrive at La Graciosa, there are no coaches. It is a very virgin island that you can only move in the authorized 4×4 all terrains of the island with driver, rent a bike or go walking.

In my case, I have a problem on the back and I can’t ride the bike. This option was discarded from the beginning. The option of walking around La Graciosa suena bien. We tried to do it, but there is no shade during the whole camino and con el solete that there is and the heat is créeme that is not as appetizing as it seems. At the end we ended up resorting to comfort in the 4×4 that are continuously passing through the roads without asphalting the island. You can make concrete trayectos in the todoterreno, give the tour to the island with stops, decide that it takes you to a playa and place where you can recover, etc. The options adapt to your needs. In addition, there is coverage throughout the island so you can call them without a problem by taxi.

&nbsp

One thing to have in mind if you have the trayecto in todoterreno 4×4 son los botes. Sorry for being so thorough, but I sufro mucho de esto por mi espalda. If you go in the front seat of the 4×4 you won’t notice it so much, but if you go in the back, when it comes to unpaved and somewhat careless steps (they were trying to level them a little bit) the buttons on the te los quita nadie.

For that reason, I would like to comment another option to reach La Graciosa. It is a organized tour on catamaran from where you pick up your hotel, take you to the Puerto de Órzola and go to the south of the island in the most comfortable way possible. He catamaran stops at Caleta de Sebothe inhabited pueblo de la isla and en la Playa de la Francesa, one of the best beaches in La Graciosa. This beach is where Anabel Pantoja got married. In addition, it includes food, drink and snorkel equipment. No doubt, it’s there option to arrive at La Graciosa more comfortable.

What to do in La Graciosa

Once you know as go from Lanzarote to La Graciosa I assure you that you will spend the best day of your vacations. We visited La Graciosa as a day trip from Lanzarote. We arrived at Caleta de Sebo, the town where the people of La Graciosa live and we went walking up to them Playas del Sur de la Isla, Playa de la Francesa and Playa de Montaña Amarilla. From Caleta de Sebo it takes around 35 minutes, but you know that you can do it forever with the heat. If you go to the island walking, don’t forget to bring your hat and water.

After starting the walk and resting a mouse on the beach, we decided that the option of walking through La Graciosa was not our option. We chose to return to Caleta de Sebo in a 4×4 that appeared near the beach. The trayecto costs only 5 euros. After eating in Doña Enriqueta, the best restaurant in La Graciosa, we decided to book a 4×4 tour that takes you to the island for 25 euros per person and stops at the most important places on the island. In addition, we were able to solo in the coach. The lady who brought us to us was local and I’ve been counting curiosities of La Graciosa. For example, how was the education here. There is a college in La Graciosa, but when the children pass by the Viven Institute from Lunes to viernes in Haría. Also how the medical system worked in case of emergency. Curiosities of living a little isolated, but they seemed very interesting to me.

The most important places what to see in La Graciosa sound:

  • Tallow Caletahe main pueblo of la isla. Here is where you can find the church, the restaurants, the pharmacy, supermarkets. Es decir, here is where there is more life on the island.
  • Pedro Barba is he another pueblo de la Graciosa, but currently nadie lives here. The houses are reserved for tourist renters. This pueblecito was first settlement on the island due to the construction of a salazón factory. By the way, check out the houses that have the pueblo! I’m a monad.
  • Playa Lambra It’s one of the most peaceful beaches in La Graciosa and the most protected in Viento.
  • He Viewpoint Baja de las Majapalomas It is a very curious place, here a natural rock bridge has been formed on a cliff formed by a volcanic tube.
  • There Playa de las Conchas it’s no doubt it’s there best beach in La Graciosa. A paradisiacal beach, with a fine and golden sand that gives us a spectacular landscape.
  • Playa la Francesa and Playa de Montaña Amarillaare the beaches that are located on the south side of the island and close to Caleta de Sebo.
  • If you like trekking, you can also go up Montaña del Mojonaunque de mojón do not have anything because the view is spectacular Montaña Bermeja from Playa de las Conchas.
