Beaches in Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura is well known for its beaches. Each one of them is unique. In the north of the island, we can highlight:
Popcorn Beach (Sunset Beach in Corralejo)
This wonderful beach, instead of sand, has fossils of white algae that look like popcorn. If you are going to visit this beach, we ask you to be satisfied with just looking and touching this wonder, and do not take it with you as a souvenir; as this brings unwanted consequences to the natural environment.
Grandes Playas of Corralejo
It has beaches that are almost 3.5 kilometers long, creating a group known as Grandes Playas. Among them, we can highlight:
• Flag Beach. Perfect place to practice kitesurfing.
• La Entubadera. Beach for surfing.
• Bajo Negro beach. Beach located behind the hotels. It is well sheltered from the wind and waves; perfect to enjoy a day with the family.
If we move to the east coast of the island, we have another very cozy town called Cotillo. There we can find:
• Lakes of Cotillo. Lagoons that form at high tide. Unlike other beaches, the se ones are generally very quiet.
- Piedra Playa. An impressive beach to which we descend from a Cliff.
This amazing beach is known as the windsurf paradise and it is one of the most famous beach worldwide to practice this sport. It is here where the World Cup of windsurf and kitesurf are celebrated.
For many it is the most beautiful beach on the island. It is located in the extreme south, on the Jandía peninsula. Getting there requires a bit of determination, but the effort will be rewarded by the nature which is so wild that it leaves you speechless. The sandy area, framed by majestic mountains, stretches as far as the eye can see and has a totally unspoiled and uncontaminated appearance. A paradisiacal and impressive beach that you can’t miss.
Fuerteventura is a place of fishing tradition; it is the place where the richest fresh fish is obtained. The best known are viejas, breams, cabrillas, groupers, octopus or moray eel.
On the other hand, majorero goat meats are very popular and, of course, cheeses and yogurts made with goat’s milk.
These cheeses are one of the most valued products of Canarian gastronomy. Since 1996 it has a designation of origin.
Fuerteventura is a paradise for hiking lovers. If you are staying in the north of the island, we recommend a circular route that passes next to Montaña Colorada and leads us to the crater of the Calderón Hondo Volcano. The hike is very easy and it offers incredible views.
As you can see, Fuerteventura is a paradise, not only because of its beaches, but also because of its extensive gastronomy and wonderful routes. What are you for waiting to visit us?
