Playa de Janubio
The Playa de Janubio is one of the most striking beaches on the island of Lanzarote. Its black sand will not disappoint anyone who visits, and the contrast of colours with the roaring Atlantic Ocean makes this beach a truly magical place. That is why this is more of a beach to see and experience rather than to relax on as it has a dangerous coastline that is frequently battered by the waves.
