Costa Rubicon & Los Charcones

Easy hike in the Rubicon plain to the Charcones

Swimming in the Charcones – what a Lanzarote-Feeling
We start at the meeting point of the old seawater desalination plant of Yaiza. We drive along the coast towards the south, on a gravel road before we start hiking a small path along the cliffs, with great views from above onto the rocks and the roaring sea below us. The rocks here often have very special shapes and invite you to stay. We look for a sheltered spot (bathing is allowed on request) and return to the starting point after a long rest. The way back on the gravel road will be easy – so you don’t have to face a strenouos walk after your experience with the sea. On our way there is a lot of information about the history of Lanzarote in connection with the sea, salt and wildlife.
