Orzola is small coastal village in the far north of Lanzarote. It is situated in a sensational and striking natural setting with incredible views towards the Chinijo archipelago, which makes a visit to this village a highly recommended option.
Orzola is popular for being the port that links Lanzarote with La Graciosa Island.
It is where you will find the port which connects Lanzarote with Caleta del Sebo. Caleta del Sebo is the village with La Graciosa’s only port. This journey takes around 40 minutes and costs just over 15 euros.
But Orzola is not just a passing place for people visiting La Graciosa – it also has some spectacular unspoilt beaches that are undoubtedly worth a visit.
Los Caletones, Caletón Blanco and Caleta del Blanco are excellent options. You won’t find whiter sand anywhere else on the island. They are small unspoilt coves with clear waters and calm waves. Recommended for anyone looking for peace and quiet.
La Canteria Beach (Playa de la Canteria) is also another option to bear in mind, although its strong waves mean that it’s not great for swimming.
Orzola is village with a distinct fishing tradition. It is the ideal place to enjoy fresh fish in one of its restaurants looking over the ocean.
