Volcanic sand meets clean blue waters at the Playa de Matagorda beach and elsewhere you can visit other beaches such as Barilla or Pena Grande for instance. The beaches here are great for water-sporting activities which include windsurfing. There are also amenities on some of these beaches which include a shower and toilet and a place for you to change your clothing in privacy.

However, if you are interested in leveling up on your leisure then you can do so at Puerto del Carmen which is five minutes away from Matagorda.

Excursions about Matagorda and most of Lanzarote are recommended as there are a lot of historic buildings and places that you would want to see.

As you journey throughout Matagorda and the rest of the island, it would become clear how much of a modernised place Matagorda has become.

Existing since circa 1700s, the winery has all the makings of a traditional Lanzarote property with its thick walls made from volcanic materials with large ceiling beams. As you explore the interior of the winery you would see the machinery that was used to distill wine years ago which is on display here.
