Famara beach is more than just a paradise for surfers and kitesurfers who travel to the area throughout the year. The truth is that this small town with a fishing tradition has achieved world renown as a meeting point for surfers. This obviously makes it, in a way, a paradise for fans of these water sports. Every year in the month of October one of the world surfing events is held and recently one of the events for the Spanish kitesurfing championship was held, now there is talk of holding one of the world events.

Near the beach, walking to the west, we have another smaller beach known as the San Juan beach, which is mainly used by surfers, and where a professional level surfing competition is held every year. The strong currents and waves mean that bathing in the waters of Famara requires caution if you are not used to it.

In the town you can find restaurants, bars, a hamburger joint and three supermarkets, the kitchen cannot be said to be the “Bomba ;-)” but you will certainly find fresh fish and seafood in the area, in the hamburger joint you can find all kinds of tapas and you really eat well at a good price, in the “La Mar Cafe” bar for night parties, or relax playing the pool with a good surfer atmosphere.

There are also several shops and schools specialized in active tourism and water sports, in the same town.

There are no hotels in the area and accommodation is quite limited so we advise you to have something booked before your trip, especially in summer, the bus service is quite poor in the area, so we recommend renting a car.
