El Bosquecillo, situated above the imposing Famara cliffs, is one of the most popular natural viewpoints in Lanzarote.
The surroundings of the viewpoint is a festival of colour, with the varying tones of the island’s characteristic volcanic barrenness, the green of the bushes sprinkled across the hills, and the intense blue of the sea in contrast.
El Bosquecillo is one of the few family-oriented outdoor spaces in the north of Lanzarote, and as well as being able to enjoy the views, you will also find wooden benches and tables, stone barbecues and children’s play areas.
From this vantage point, to one side, you can see La Graciosa Island and the other islets that make up the Chinijo Archipelago, and to the other side, the Risco de Famara cliffs, the spectacular beach below it, and a large part of Lanzarote’s west coast.
Incredible views with the blue of the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop.
