Everyone who knows it knows that Fuerteventura is the beach island… Its 340 kilometre coastline, is full of beaches: pristine and secluded, with wild water and big waves, calm sea and sandy lakes, beaches in charming fishing villages, with all amenities and services, almost inaccessible ones, to practise any water sport… and Blue Flag beaches. This year, six beaches on the island have got this certification.
It is a semi-urban white-sand beach, almost a kilometre long, located between the airport and the capital, Puerto del Rosario. It is a quiet beach, not a tourist resort, and it isn’t overcrowded at any time of year. In some areas surf and kite-boarding are practised. It is an ideal place to relax, play sports or take a peaceful stroll.
The beach of Puerto de Lajas, three kilometres north of Puerto del Rosario, is in a fishing village taking the same name. It consists of fine black sand and pebbles (stones rounded by the sea) and its waters are usually calm. Most of its visitors are from the area and when the wind blows it is frequented by windsurfers.
It is a small urban beach north of the city of Puerto del Rosario. It is a very quiet white sand beach, protected by the dock seawalls. Due to its proximity, it is mainly visited by the residents of the capital, families and youth. Given its size and its characteristic calm waters, it is ideal to have a great time with kids.
South of Fuerteventura, on the east coast, in what is known as Beaches of Jandía, is this beautiful 1,500 meter long beach, with fine white sand and turquoise waters. Frequented by tourists because of its beauty, is also the choice of water sports fans, such as windsurfers. It is a beautiful postcard beach.
A little further south we find this long beach of fine golden sand and clear waters, where the salt marshes of Jandía are, a site of scientific interest, and the impressive lighthouse in “El Matorral”. It’s a great option to spend a pleasant beach day and take long walks along the seashore.
Finally, on the coast of the former fishing village of Morro Jable, the southernmost population of Fuerteventura, there is a white sand beach, turquoise and calm sea, and a lively avenue full of restaurants, bars and shops. It is frequented mainly by local people from the area and also by tourists visiting this historic town of Fuerteventura.
