Lanzarotes Best Kept Secret !



Events on La Graciosa

La Graciosa is home to many events such as the the annual swim called Traversía a nado el Río. Competitors swim from the lovely beach at the bottom of the Mirador del Río over the water to the Caleta de Sebo harbour where they are met by the local mayor, presented with a medal and a free lunch.

The event is normally held on a Saturday towards the last week of September. This year (26/09/09) there were over 600 entrants for the swim from all over the globe.

Fiestas are always spectacular in Lanzarote and Graciosa is no exception! Graciosa celebrates the Saint of Del Carmen for their Fiesta in June, normally around the 16th and 17th of June.

Carnival is another big celebration and an excuse to dress up. It is held towards the end of MArch depending on Easter dates.
