Show us... La Graciosa, Spain

Show us islands of the world is your chance to show the island near where you live, or where you live on, or where you've been- then please choose pictures from your chosen island and either upload to an existing location thread, or if your location is not shown then start as a new thread. The usual Dyxum content rules apply- but to assist fellow Dyxumers inspired to visit locations that are shown, please indicate where in/on your island the photos were taken.

This thread is open for C&C and for posting additional pictures. Please ONLY post pictures taken at the island indicated- or start a new thread.

La Graciosa, separated by the Strait of El Rio, is located 2km from the Northern tip of the island of Lanzarote. Since 2018 it is officially recognized as the 8th Canary Island. At the time of starting this thread it has about 700 inhabitants. Tourism is an expanding business on the island, though - particularly in the larger of the island's two settlements, Caleta del Sebo. The island can be reached by ferry from Orzola, Lanzarote.

I like those wider views and #2 with the well placed person in silhouette in particular. TFS
