The most beautiful beaches in Fuerteventura

The beaches are the main attraction on the island.

Those who book a flight to Fuerteventura can choose from more than 150 different bathing places. The peninsula of Jandia on the east coast has the most and probably the most beautiful beaches on the island. On Fuerteventura you will not only find the most beautiful beaches of the Canary Islands but also the bathing places with the best water quality. Finest Sahara sand makes the longing for sun, sand and sea become reality. This was created over millions of years from finely ground shell limestone. On Fuerteventura, every holidaymaker comes into his own. You can find lively family beaches as well as exciting surf spots or the solitude in the dunes.

The beach of Esquinzo is very diverse with sand, stone, bays and rocks.

The horseshoe-shaped bay of Caleta De Fuste is one of the busiest beaches on the island. The 600-metre-long beach section also offers children untroubled bathing fun, as high waves are a rarity here. Surfing and jet-ski are offered. The beach benefits from its central location, not far from the airport.

In the bay of Costa Calma you will find the Playa del Sotavento, probably the most beautiful island beach. The sea can be waded or swum through here, depending on the water level. The beach section is called “Rhapsody in Blue”. At the southern end of the beach of Sotavento is the holiday centre Morro Jable, which has a promenade, bars, restaurants and cafés.

The dune park of Corralejo promises ten kilometres of beach fun.

The light sand is perfect for relaxing and holidaymakers can enjoy the view of the island of Los Lobos. An area of the beach is reserved for wind and kite surfers. An insider tip in the wilder south of the island is the beach of Cofete, which nestles idyllically on the mountain slopes of Jandia. The sea here is often wild and stormy. Swimming can be dangerous, so it is better to relax on the beach and enjoy the wild and romantic beauty of the landscape.

Surfers are in their element at the southwest tip of the island, in Puerto de la Luz.

A small but very quiet and protected beach is the Playa de las Pilas. At the beach of Ajuy, the black sand forms a charming contrast to the blue Atlantic Ocean. The surf is also here quite strong and therefore, bathing is not fully advisable. From the cliffs, there are some wonderful view possibilities. Those who want to spend their holiday at a quiet beach will be right in El Cotillo. The single bays are separated from each other by lava rocks and stones. The gently sloping beach section is also suitable for children. There is also a nudist section.
