Photographer's Note

My favourite day on Lanzarote I spent on the neighbouring island called La Graciosa. The island is part of the Chinijo Archipelago, a group of small islands north of Lanzarote. This picture was taken from Lanzarote towards La Graciosa. This exact viewpoint is called the Mirador del Rio, after El Rio which is the name of the strait between the two islands. To get to La Graciosa you can take a catamaran tour, but this would give you just a brief experience of the island. Instead, I drove to the little town called Orzola, from which there are ferries departing every 30 min to La Graciosa. After landing there we took a Jeep taxi which took us to one of the most distant places on the island, a spectacular beach, Playa de las Conchas. It is there where we have climbed a red coloured volcano and later enjoyed, almost undisturbed by other people, one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. Before I show you a couple of shots from La Graciosa, I wanted to show you a view of the island from a distance, so that you can better imagine what I am talking about.
