North Beaches of Fuerteventura
The North Beaches of Fuerteventura has multiple beaches and they are considered some of the best.
The sand is bright white and very fine. Covering the majority of the northern-east tip of the island this area is the perfect location for kite surfing and para-sailing.
Five kilometers from Corralejo there is the Natural Park, where large sand dunes come almost all the way to the waters edge and they are a great place to have a hike and then a cooling dip.
A spectacular landscape of 2,600 hectares where the white sand leads to turquoise waters.
Central-East Beaches of Fuerteventura
The black-sand beach at Gran Tarajal has a blue flag and is popular with locals, however the colour of it’s sand makes it less attractive than the beaches of Corralejo or Jandia.
Located beside the Parador National (Spanish state-owned Hotel) between Puerto del Rosario and the Airport is the attractive golden-sand beach of Playa Blanca, although when compared to some of the spectacular beaches of this Island, it comes a distant second.
South Beaches of Fuerteventura
Between Costa Calma and Morro Jable lie the best (and longest stretch of) Beaches on the Island. The bleached white sand and shallow turquoise waters make this stretch of coast a beach lover’s dream.
The beaches in both Costa Calma and Morro Jable are very nice and have blue flags (and therefore lifeguards), though it’s worth exploring the beautiful coves that lie outside the main resorts. If it is a windy day, then the beach at the old part of Morro Jable can be a good bet.
On the windward (western) coast of the Jandia Peninsula there is a 14km stretch of sand. To get to these unspoilt beaches, you will need a 4×4 as there is only an unsealed track connecting them with the rest of the island.
While these beaches are unspoilt and beautiful, there are strong winds and dangerous currents here which make bathing inadvisable.
South West Beaches of Fuerteventura
A long the south-west coast you will find the infamous black sand and rocky Fuerteventura beaches.
