La Graciosa - the eighth inhabited Canary Island!
From this Tuesday, La Graciosa is officially the eighth inhabited island of the Canary Islands.
La Graciosa Island is part of the Chinijo archipelago, along with the small islands of Montaña Clara, Roque del Este, Roque del Oeste and Alegranza. It is northwest of Lanzarote, an island on which it has depended administratively and from which it is separated by an arm of the sea known as El Río. It is also relatively close to the African continental coast. It is the least populated of the eight inhabited islands.
The island has the condition of protected space within the part of the Natural Park of the Chinijo Archipelago. It is administratively added to Lanzarote and is part of the municipality of Teguise.
As there is no asphalt, no cars, except some off-road taxi for comfortable tourists. For the rest, the main means of transport is the bicycle with which to get, for example, to the beach of Las Conchas, located in the north, five kilometers long from Caleta del Sebo, the most beautiful on the island and one of the most beautiful in Spain.
