Vistas al islote Montaña Clara y al volcán Montaña Bermeja

If you want to discover this beautiful and singular island there are multiple possibilities from Caleta del Sebo; hiking, birdwatching, mountain biking, photography, snorkeling, scuba diving…anything will be good 😊

In this island there are no paved roads, just dirt roads. It is the eighth inhabited island of the Canary Islands and is probably the least known of all of them.

We had a great time both trekking and diving here.

Información útil

  • Uso de GPS altamente recomendable, a veces iremos por senderos sin marcar
  • Uso de botas altas, para evitar que nos entren piedras en los zapatos y palos de senderismo.
  • la Graciosa es una isla desértica, donde solo hay una población principal, Caleta del Sebo y una pequeña urbanización, Pedro Barba. Puede hacer mucha calor y no hay ninguna sombra ni fuentes de agua dulce, recomendamos traer suficiente agua para las jornadas, y por supuesto, gorro, crema y gafas de sol.

WARNINGS

This route goes through irregular and arid terrain. Trekking experience, self-sufficiency and use of GPS is required.

other recomendations

  • It is highly recommended to also bring in the backpacks:
    • Little binoculars, the island is fantastic for bird watching
    • Snorkeling gear (swimsuit, mask, tube and small fins). The island has very good natural beaches ideal for a rest stop and a swim (see snorkeling guide in Lanzarote and La Graciosa)
    • Free camping is not allowed on the island. We must look for accommodation in Caleta del Sebo or camp in the free campsite, with prior reservation on the national parks reservation website.
