Here's how to find it, - map from Google, - sorry for the quality.

When you arrive from the South and turn right (lower right corner) towards Orzola center, - after some 100 yds turn left on a straight but narrow road with a stone wall along the road on your left side. The road has newly been paved but only for a very short distance. Drive past the new white building (the only one on the road), - and then turn right and follow mud tracks at your own risk (multiple choices, look for fresh tyre marks) until you reach the beach (upper left corner).

You may also walk across from Orzola itself. About 10 minutes I would think.....

Plenty of small zocos or stone rings where you can hide as you approach the beach. Not a lot of people, usually quite windy and sun sets early behind the high cliffs on the west side of beach. Popular beach with local surfers, especially during weekends......

Hope this helps........... :wink:

If I remember correctly, there are signs up saying swimming is dangerous there.

Was at caleta del congrio and Playa del Pozo last year thought congrio better for swimming. Pozo was difficult to get into water, sharp incline and waves cvery heavy but once in past the breaking waves was lovely. Mostly naturist in Pozo but quite a few textiles in Congrio.

Have also been to Guacimeta near the airport, nice for swimming but only handfull naturists and very near cycle/walking path. Very few Zocos there.

There is a small beach just on the Arrecife side of Playa Honda, just past EmmaX restaurant which is lovely. Not sure if it's really naturist, more CO and probably majority textiles. First time there saw elderly couple with all over tans and once they went in swimming a few times we thought it was ok to do likewise. Then couple others turned up naturist too. However on weekends seems mostly textile. It's probably best to see what the population on a given day is doing before stripping off. Beach very sandy and great for swimming, as it's just a little cove, some Zocos but they are over to the far side with rocks in between them and water.

Its a pity that no sandy beaches at Charco del Palo, as that's otherwise probably best place on the island for naturism.

We are just back from Lanzarote having stayed at the Rubicon Marina area of Playa Blanca. I walked to the beach at Caleta del Congrio six times and enjoyed every day. The beach was about 80% naturist and busier than I have seen in the past. My wife hurt her knee horse riding and was only able to join me on one day.

The beach is back to its beautiful best with sweeping sand, and stone wind breaks for those who arrive early. We usually visit in December or January and were surprised how busy the beaches are a few weeks earlier (but still not crowded). Being on my own most of the time I also did some naturist walking early in the morning. The area around the beach is used for naked walking, but I always take swim shorts with me on the walk to cover up if necessary (I do not want to offend).
