Isla Graciosa Things to Do
You can take a small ferry from Orzola (north of Lanzarote Island) to Caleta de Sebo (capital of La Graciosa, but still a very small town with 500 people living and where streets without pavement makes you feel there like in a lost and wild location). The ferry will take about 20 minutes or half an hour. Once in Caleta del Sebo, you can hire a Land Rover with driver for a very reasonable price that will guide you around the small island and show to you the different beaches and most interesting places. It's really worth it.
Caleta del Sebo is the main town in Graciosa and it has more than 500 inhabitants. Is a very beautiful place with cubicly shaped white houses with green and blue doors and windows and a pretty walkway near the harbour.
The other town is Pedro Barba and has no permanent inhabitants.Related to:
