Charca de la Novia, Orzola

#16 of 31 in Beaches in Lanzarote
A pristine tropical lagoon with black volcanic rocks surrounding patches of white sand, Charca de la Novia offers a chance to swim away from the tourist crowds. At high tide the sea fills the lagoon with clear, turquoise water that warms up quickly. Paddle in the shallow natural pool filled with small fish, or take cover from the wind in small rounded shelters constructed by regulars out of the boulders.
