Órzola is located at the northern tip of Lanzarote and is the ferry port to the neighbouring island of La Graciosa and the other small islands of the Chinijo Archipelago (composed of the islands of La Graciosa, Alegranza, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste), a protected marine reserve.
The ferry crossing to La Graciosa only takes about twenty minutes. Lineas Romero and Biosfera Express are the two ferry companies operating the crossing, you can check their websites for more information, schedule and prices.
Free parking for the ferry port and anyone planning to explore the village is located just to the left of the harbour.
Even though thousands of tourists visit La Graciosa each year, Órzola has kept a genuine unspoilt and peaceful charm, perfect for a day trip. Órzola has fantastic fish and seafood restaurants where you can enjoy a fresh meal right on the harbour.
El Caletón Blanco beach, a perfectly clean white sand beach unlike no other, is just a short drive away from Órzola. A natural swimming pool of crystal clear water in a perfect location dotted with volcanic lava.
