It is quite a thing of beauty to walk along the cliff tops and look down on the green water of this beautiful lagoon. Take the time to visit and see for yourself!

Having spent nearly twenty years negotiating our way down the path on the cliff face, we were pleased to see that the authorities have finally used some of the entrance money they collect to construct some simple steps from the car park to the beach....More

lucky there is no great street leading here. It keeps some people away and helps to create a nice beach ambience. Not the tropical and lonely beaches, but a very nice, clean and selection of (various) beaches. If you go there: DO ORDER THE "ARROZ...More

This is not a free beach. We needed to pay 3 euros to get there. The road to the very end is rough and rocky and the lot is crowded.

Beautiful beach bit a bit overrated. In any case it is great that it is kept away from mass tourism and development.

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
Google Translation
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.
