Playa La Francesa offers a beautiful sandy beach and a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Mind this: bring your own drinks and snacks (and do not leave any litter), as there is no bar or shop for that matter.

Only accessible by boat, we went on an excursion to La Graciosa then this beach. The beach is quiet and the water was lovely. We were able to see fish when snorkelling.
