Welcome to La Caleta de Famara


Famara’s excellent waves offer some of Europe’s finest breaks, along with El Quemao, around 15km due south (but only suitable for very experienced surfers). If you don’t fancy taking a board, then come here to watch the surfing, which is some of the best you will see throughout the Canaries.

If you fancy staying over, look no further than the town's numerous surf schools. All of them can arrange affordable accommodation in nearby apartments.
