The prestigious Australian travel guide Lonely Planet has asked its readers to choose the most beautiful beaches in Spain . Among those chosen, readers have selected the beaches of Papagayo in the south of Lanzarote.
Lonely Planet points out that "it is not just one beach, but several, all of them with golden sand and surrounded by gigantic cliffs", at the foot of the Los Ajaches Natural Monument.
The travel guide highlights its "good conservation, its golden and virgin sands that stretch between Playa Blanca and Punta del Papagayo sheltered from the trade winds, and bathed by calm and crystalline waters."
"The beaches are very photogenic and their turquoise waters are the object of desire for Instagrammers and collectors of good memories," highlights Lonely Planet, which also points out that the neighboring island of Fuerteventura and the islet of Lobos can be seen from them.
The most popular of all the beaches is the one that gives its name to the place, shaped like a horseshoe and with golden sand. But there are others like the Mujeres, the Wax, the Pozo and the Caleta del Congrio.
