29499. View of the early morning skyline over the Atlantic, from the plateau below Haría and high above Arrieta


 

 


 
29500. César Manrique's mobile creation, one of many, on the main road roundabout. It rotates in the wind and also makes some deep but unobtrusive sound.

Isla La Graciosa / La Graciosa Island


 

Caleta de Sebo


 


 
29512. Three sort-of-seagulls on the port quay


 

 

From Caleta de Sebo to Playa de las Conchas


 


 
29513. The road from Caleta de Sebo to Playa de las Conchas is bumpy for cars but wide for walking - it takes and hour and a half at a moderate pace. Montaña Aguja Grande is to the right, Montaña Clara island top left.


 

 


 
29514. Montaña Aguja Grande, close view


 

 


 
29515. A stream, flowing only during heavy rains, eroded the eastern flank of Montaña del Mojón and along this wall a natural shade could be found.


 

 


 
29516. A group of, very probably German speaking, hikers


 

 


 
29523. The road with Montañas Agujas in the distance


 

 


 
29524. The road above Playa de las Conchas, below Montaña Bermeja


 

 

Playa de las Conchas


 


 
29525. It is a really large beach.


 

 


 
29526. Sunbathers on the beach, telephoto view gives a wrong impression that they are close to the waterline.


 

 


 
29530 - 29532. Panoramic view of the Montaña Clara island across the sea


 

 


 
29533. Astydamia latifolia in the dune above the beach, it must have blossomed in March. A good source for the Lanzarote flora.


 

 


 
29536 - 29537. Sail-like sunshade in strong wind


 

 


 
29539. The sand, the sea and the sky


 

 


 
29546. Red flag above the beach indicated that the swimming is most strongly discouraged. Even approaching the waterline on this beach can be deadly - on December 27, 2013, a French family lost the father, 47, and a daughter, 11, who approached the waterline and were swept away by a large wave.


 

 

From Playa de las Conchas to Caleta de Sebo
