Famara, lanzarote in January - still beginner friendly?

« on: November 17 2008 12:11:00 »

Hello all, it’s a decision between California and canaries for January. ive read posts about famara beach saying its beginner friendly and all that, but in January, are the waves likely to be quite big, I wouldn’t be looking for much bigger than 4ft – would it still be beginner friendly in jan?
Also, for those of you who stayed there (in famara), what companies did you use to book accommodation, any  good? And is a car necessary to get to famara from the airport, I presume there’s no other way of getting there so car rental might be necessary, in which case it doesn’t matter where I stay??
Many thanks
