La Graciosa. Canary Islands Spain

To visit La Graciosa is a must, because it is very close to the Island of Lanzarote.

Graciosa Island or commonly La Graciosa is a volcanic island in the Canary Islands of Spain, located 2 km (1.2 mi) north of the island of Lanzarote across the Strait of El Río. It was formed by the Canary hotspot. The island is part of the Chinijo Archipelago and the Chinijo Archipelago Natural Park (Chinijo Archipelago Natural Park). It is administrated by the municipality of Teguise. In 2018 La Graciosa officially became the eighth Canary Island. The only two settlements on the island are Caleta de Sebo in the southeastern part of the island and a private summer-residence.

The population is about 700. The main industry is fishing. Every year, tourists flock to the island for its tempered climate and its sandy volcanic coasts. The island has a school, lyceum, post office, supermarkets, medical center, pharmacy, port, beaches, bar-restaurants and a square.

Imagine being in the middle of nature, placidly, without the noise and air pollution of our era, it is almost a dream, but it can be realized by choosing a destination like La Isla Graciosa.

Streets and roads on La Graciosa are unpaved sand. Motor vehicles are strictly limited to a handful of licensed vehicles for special purposes. Access to the island is by a 35-minute ferry crossing from Órzola on Lanzarote to the harbor in the village. There is a campsite on the island situated on Playa del Salado at the western edge of Caleta del Sebo.

There are several isolated mountains on the island, the tallest of which is Agujas Grandes rising to 266 m (873 ft). The second tallest is Agujas Chicas at 228 m (748 ft). Playa de la Cocina is a well known beach in the southwestern part of the island.
