An entire naturist colony, the village of Charco del Palo, is a special place for naturists on Lanzarote – you can stay clothes-free even outside of the ocean shore area and don’t need to think of clothes even when you walk to the beach from your house down the streets of the village.
Or even if you go to a restaurant? Unfortunately they had a siesta break when we were there, so we could only check the Menü (it was in German, of all languages).
It is also a great place for snorkeling and diving, as there are a lot of different fishes and algae on the rocks. About a hundred meters off the shore, there are submerged rocks that make a nice point to swim to. On the way there, I saw some rays gliding by the bottom.
And there is an arch-like rock formation that you can walk on (and swim under).
Despite the rocks, the entrance to the water is not difficult thanks to the hand rails.
Small children can play safely in the waters of 2 natural tidal pools, as they are shallow and protected from waves.
If you walk around on the rocky shore,
you’ll see a lot of shrubs and succulent plants, many of which are you unique to Canary Islands.
We were in time for their blossom (later March) of succulents,
so as this parasitic plant called desert broomrape, which doesn’t have its own leaves (well, even some plants here prefer to stay naked!)
