How to get to La Graciosa from Lanzarote

If you are going to spend several days in Lanzarote, I highly recommend visiting La Graciosa Island. It is the least inhabited and quietest island out of all the Canary Islands. However, it is full of spectacular places. Here you will find out how to get to La Graciosa from Lanzarote.

You just have to take a ferry in Órzola, north of Lanzarote, to Caleta de Sebo, the main town of La Graciosa. You can also book a day trip to La Graciosa Island. Later I will explain both options in detail to help you decide which one suits you the most.

If you are going to visit La Graciosa without a tour, you may be wondering if you should spend at least one night there or if a one-day visit is enough.

My advice is that, if you are visiting Lanzarote for several days, book at least one night in La Graciosa Island. I recommend it for two reasons. The first reason is because you will be able to get to know the island better, since you will have time to visit more places. The second reason is because you will be able to enjoy the island with more peace and tranquility.

Once the ferries from La Graciosa to Lanzarote leave with tourists, you will be there with the locals and a few other tourists who have made the same wise decision.

Ready to find out how to get to La Graciosa from Lanzarote? As I mentioned before you can take the ferry to La Graciosa from Órzola (Lanzarote) or book an organized day trip to La Graciosa.

1. How to get to La Graciosa with a ferry

If you want to visit this island on your own, you must take the ferry to La Graciosa.

The ferry from Lanzarote to La Graciosa departs from Port of Órzola and arrives at Caleta de Sebo, in La Graciosa. The Port of Órzola is located in the town of the same name, in the extreme north of Lanzarote.

There are two boat companies that offer the ferry route from Lanzarote to La Graciosa Island: Lineas Romero and Biosfera Express.

When you buy a ferry ticket to La Graciosa from either company, they usually sell you the outward journey and the return journey. The return schedule is flexible, which means that you can return from La Graciosa any time you want. Even on another day.

🛏️ You haven’t booked your hotel in Lanzarote yet? I recommend you the place we stayed at: Conylanza Golf and Mar Suites, an apartment located in a very quiet neighborhood in Costa Teguise. The place was spacious, clean and had a shared garden with a pool. We loved it! Find out other areas to stay in Lanzarote.

If you are not going to spend the night on the island, I recommend visiting it with a 4×4 to give you time to see more places. If you are going to spend at least 2 days on the island, you can easily explore it by bike. The distances between places are not very long.

  • Playa de la Cocina.
  • Montaña amarilla.
  • Caleta del Sebo.
  • Las Conchas Beach

If you are interested in booking a tour, I recommend taking a look at this organized trip to La Graciosa Island.

They will pick you up at your hotel in Lanzarote to take you to the port of Órzola. Then you will take the ferry to La Graciosa. Once there, you will take a walk through Caleta de Sebo, capital of La Graciosa. By the way, did you know that La Graciosa only has around 700 inhabitants? Then you will board a catamaran sailboat to tour the south coast of the island. All this after enjoying a welcome mojito.

You will have the opportunity to get off the boat at Playa Francesa, where you will have free time to sunbathe, snorkel, ride a kayak or simply cool off. Then comes the food: paella and fresh fruit! You will also have at your disposal all the beers, sangrias, water and soft drinks that you want.

In the afternoon, you will return to Caleta de Sebo on the catamaran to catch the ferry back to Órzola (Lanzarote). You will then return to your hotel.
