BEACHES

 

I have personally visited Fuerteventura now on 5 occasions and each time has been a privilege.  As the island is quite barren in parts - it is best to hire a car that way you can explore every delight the island has to offer.

Beaches

Sotavento & Jandia in the south have by far the most beautiful and stunning beaches that Fuerteventura have to offer.  Stretching for nearly 20km the white sand dunes and lagoons are a sight to behold.  Home to the P.W.A. Windsurfing Speed & Slalom event in August, Fuerteventura is a windsurfers paradise.  As you sit on the beaches of the South –the sun shining  - you are surrounded by the white sand dunes and the waves of the Atlantic Ocean rolling into meet the shore – the events of the year fade into comparison with the beautiful serene location that you now find yourself lost within. This by far is our favourite beach on the island.

 

Caleta De Fuste the horseshoe bay of Caleta is a haven for families due to its sheltered position from the sea – the beach whilst being man made is in fact very pretty and near the harbour many water sport activities can be sort.  There's even an open air aquarium where you can go and feed the fishes.  Or if your feeling really brave you can swim with the sea lions.

 

 

Corralejo  the nicest beach of Corralejo has to be the National Park of the Sand Dunes (Grandes Playas).  As you sit and watch the white sand of the dunes, which look like something out of Lawrence of Arabia - you can actually see the shape of them changing before your very eyes, as the wind sweeps the sand up and moves it along to another part of the beach.  Absolutely Stunning.  Again as with Jandia – Corralejo is a haven for water sports with one of the main sports being Kite Surfing.  Within the town of Corralejo there is a few smaller beaches which are well equipped with toilets, restaurants etc, and these beaches are ideal for families due to them being safe, clean and sheltered.


El Cotillo has a small harbour and one of the finest beaches on the island. When the tide is out the beach is covered with white sand and small lagoons of sea water which are ideally suited for families.  El Cotillo isn't really yet on the tourist map and there are relatively few hotels, however it is a great place for a daytrip, and a relaxing time on the beach.  Why not visit one of the fine sea food restaurants in the harbour area.  The first thing that you notice when seeing the harbour is the enormous waves and sharp rocks that line the shore. El Cotillo is were many of the inhabitants of the island retreat to on Sunday or on a day off work its a place were you can go back to nature and crash out!
