Where is Playa de La Cocina?
Playa de La Cocina is on the island of La Graciosa, within the Marine Reserve of the Chinijo Archipelago.
It is located at the bottom of the foothill Montaña Amarilla (which is where its second name comes from) on the south of the island and opposite the northeast coast of Lanzarote. The closest town is Caleta de Sebo, 6km away.
Its location and setting make this small bay one of the most beautiful and wildest beaches on La Graciosa, and possibly in all of the Canary Islands. The orange and yellow contrasts of the mountain together with the blue sea make this place well worth a visit.
Features of Playa de La Cocina
This small bay is barely 100m long and is a real paradise for those looking to enjoy a magical, unspoilt, and wild setting.
The Montaña Amarilla is beside the beach and is a beautiful spectacle. Its geological forms and orange and red colours combine with the white sand of the beach at La Cocina along with its supremely blue waters.
Swimming at this beach is wonderful as it is protected from the strong currents of “El Río”, which is the name of the stretch of water that separates La Graciosa from Lanzarote. Its seabed is an ideal spot for diving and its peaceful beach is the perfect place for visitors to disconnect and enjoy the views.
However, it is a beach that is not that easy to get to (hence why it is so unspoilt) as you have to get there by foot.
