Shifting Sands on Lanzarote’s Beaches

Some of the most popular beaches on the island are currently enjoying a springtime spruce up and renovation in advance of the coming Easter holidays. With lorry loads of sand being transported from one coast to another in order to replenish grains recently washed away by tides, winds and inclement weather.

All of this activity is taking place with the Municipality of Teguise, which is home to some of the most stunning beaches in Lanzarote. As their remit covers all of the beaches in Costa Teguise, as well as the huge beach at Famara on the North West coast and numerous stretches of sand on the island of La Graciosa too.

This week the local authority of Teguise has started work on all of the five main beaches in Costa Teguise, Playa Jablillo, Cucharas, Ancla, Bastian and Los Charcos. So tourists staying in this resort may find their sunbathing disrupted by the sight and sound of earth movers bearing loads of sand.

Work is also being carried out at Famara and Caleta de Caballo, using sand taken from Muñique and in and around the apartments known locally as The Norwegians on Playa Famara.

Other aspects of the renovation include painting lamp posts and replacing flags to rejuvenate the seafront of the resort and provide the best possible image in what is anticipated to be one of the busiest holiday weeks of the year.
