Overview

Fuerteventura, the second in size of the Canary Islands, is a true gem in the Ocean. White sand gently taken by the wind from the desert of Africa which is just 60 miles away, contributed to create the unique atmosphere and landscape of this island.

Jandia, in the unspoilt southern end of Fuerteventura, offers some of the biggest and most beautiful beaches of the island as well as a 'secret' natural reserve. With its unique nature and coastline, the peninsula of Jandia retains that savage and wild feeling that made this destination famous all over the world. The two main beaches, Playa de Barlovento and Playa de Cofete, together measure more than 15 km and are separated by a rock. The sea is clear, the sand is white, and the beaches are never crowded: the perfect setting for an unforgettable day lying in the sun.

Corralejo is the main resort of Fuerteventura. With its traditional waterside town, pleasant atmosphere, excellent restaurants and bars, Corralejo is perfect for both young and older tourists looking for an unforgettable holiday. What makes Corralejo unique is the famous 'Dunes Beach', a real desert falling into the water in an incredible mixture of white sand and turquoise. In our opinion, it is one of the best beaches in the Canaries.

After a drive of around 70 km from the capital of the island, going south, the beautiful area of Costa Calma is a true heaven.
