|Playa Quemada is a small coastal village in Lanzarote. It is like stepping back 30 years in time, and one of Lanzarote’s best gems for lunchtime visits. It has been a favourote stop off point for hikers and cyclists for some time now.
Playa Quemada translates to “burnt beach”, and the black coastline here shows how it got its name.
Playa Quemada is located between Puerto Calero and Playa Blanca, and is part of the Yaiza municipality. As a town it is very small, with only a few dozen houses at most, and a quantity of caravans too.
It is very easy to access by car. It is well signposted at a roundabout between Playa Uga and Macher. Public transport is a no go, although you could of course get a taxi. You can walk it from Puerto Calero in around an hour.
The views from the seafood restaurants here are spectacular… giving you the sights towards the Ajache mountains flanking Papagayo and Playa Blanca. You can also see the small fish farm just off the coast where they breed sea bass… and the Isle of Lobos when it is clear.
