A wonderful island to the north of Lanzarote. The ferry crossing was pretty smooth considering where the sea moves in and out between the 2 islands. Islas Graciosa is a one of the best place i have visited, You can also camp on the beach and enjoy some the harmony of the place. You can go on your foot around the whole island very easily . it has a couple of bars and restruarant however I would suggest that if you plan to camp for a couple of days you should pack enough provisions. The views and photography change from minute to minute too.
Thank you, your post reminded me of the time when i went there and i will recommend the people to visit the heaven on earth.

La Graciosa Spain looks to be a gorgeous destination location. I am amazed that their are no privately owned vehicles to trample all over those sandy streets. The Canary Islands has yet another beautiful gem that is hidden away from the troubles of modern day civilization. The beaches looked beautiful and pristine.
