Playa Quemada is the name given to this small fishing village in Lanzarote due to its black sandy coastlines. It is worth visiting the town to see how its beaches remain black, despite being constantly swept by the tidal waves.
Where is Playa Quemada?
Playa Quemada is a famous fishing village on the southeast of the island of Lanzarote, on the coast of the municipality of Yaiza, very close to Puerto Calero. It is protected by the mountains of the Los Ajaches Natural Monument, a natural wall which shields the town from the local winds.
Features of Playa Quemada
This picturesque village has plenty of little bays with black sandy beaches, a characteristic which gives this place its name and which is a sight to behold for both national and international tourists. In the town itself you’ll find a little promenade where you can enjoy its beautiful water and find something to eat at the many restaurants that line the beach, looking out over the sea. There you can try some delicious fresh fish from Lanzarote as well as many other traditional dishes.
