Barranco del Quiquere (Puerto del Carmen's nudists' haven)

Crystal clear, turquoise-colored waters with spectacular views of Lobos Island and Fuerteventura, where you can bathe while being completely nude… welcome to your next favorite spot! 


The quality of the seabed of the Barranco del Quíquere is outstanding, highlighting the exquisite palette of blue tones. Take advantage of your quick dip in the sea by bringing along goggles and a snorkel, to contemplate its rich biodiversity. It should also be noted that the Atlantic at this latitude is always calm (except for the very few days a year when the southern storm is in Lanzarote). To get comfortable you will have to find some nook of volcanic stone.

The Barranco del Quíquere is one of the most suggestive nudist strongholds in Lanzarote. Located a few kilometers south of Puerto del Carmen, it is made up of a set of natural volcanic stone coves, on the slopes of small cliffs that protect them from the wind. The atmosphere is extremely peaceful and accompanies the landscape. The big and blue Atlantic Ocean with the neighboring islands of Fuerteventura and Lobos on the horizon, and the Natural Monument of Los Ajaches reigning the southeastern cone of Lanzarote.


“How do I get there?”, you may ask…



By foot 

From the Varadero of Puerto del Carmen (Old Town). The path to the south of the island is barely two meters wide. The promenade looks out to sea from a privileged position. The path is limited by a line of wooden logs. The kick to reach the nudist coves lasts about a quarter of an hour.

By car (or bike) 

At the southern exit of Puerto del Carmen in the direction of Puerto Calero. After about a kilometer, there is a dirt road to the coast. 


What can the Barranco del Quíquere offer? Total disconnection. 

Far from being the exclusive nudist corner barely traveled, yet the Barranco del Quíquere maintains its imprint of a relaxing getaway. There is just something about reaching the area and, leaving behind the noise of the city, undressing completely, and entering the Atlantic… it is quite simply worth the trip!



Important! Please keep these points in mind 😊 

  • Please take proper footwear (you'll thank me later).
  • Always observe the tide, it varies quite a bit during the day. 
  • Jumping into the water is amazingly simple, climbing back out can be rather complicated. So, I strongly advise making sure that your way back is free of awful sea-urchins, and, at the same time, be on a lookout for large rocks 
  • If you have good nautical footwear to bathe with, this would be an excellent time to use it. 


I guess I will see you around naked-person… or maybe not. Probably not. 


Go have fun and explore!
