Kilometres of golden sand stretch before you, the waves gently lap the shore. Tiny fish darts around you in shoals, the wind whips sand into your eyes as you gaze into the distance. The difficulty with most beaches on Fuerteventura is the name of the...More

Stunning, huge, beautiful beach. A fabulous promenade for walkers, joggers, cyclists and skaters. Very clean water and golden sand. The surf can vary, sometimes suitable for surfing or watching, other times ok for swimming and paddling, a bit rough for weak swimmers, children etc. Lots...More
