Beaches In Fuerteventura


The miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters make the beaches of Fuerteventura by far the best in the Canary Islands.


Fuerteventura can get very windy, though there are a few sheltered beaches along the east coast. The western beaches receive bigger swells and are popular with surfers, though there are some sheltered coves and lagoons there too.

Corralejo Beach

In and around the centre of the resort of Corralejo there are several golden and white sandy beaches where the water is crystal clear.


Flag beach, by the two main hotels, is one of the best places to try water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing.


Glass beach and Drop beach are a little further along the road.


Just south of the resort lies the spectacular Parque Natural de las Dunas de Corralejo, these enormous white-sand dunes cover a large area of the north east of the island. There are a few small snack bars/restaurants located around the dunes, where you can relax under an umbrella with a cool drink.


The town beach is ideal for families as it is clean, safe, sheltered and surrounded by restaurants.

El Cotillo Beach

Around El Cotillo on the north west coast are a series of beaches and coves, that are popular with surfers and is renowned for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Some of the more sheltered lagoons are more suitable for sunbathing.

Playas de Jandia

Between Costa Calma and Morro Jable lie the best and longest stretch of beaches on the Island. With bleached white sand and shallow crystal waters, the beaches in both Costa Calma and Morro Jable are very nice and have blue flags, therefore lifeguards, though it's worth exploring the beautiful coves that lie outside the main resorts.

Gran Tarajal Beach

The black sand beach has a blue flag and is popular with locals, however the colour of it's sand makes it less popular than the beaches of Corralejo or Jandia.


Located between Puerto del Rosario and the Airport is the attractive golden sand beach of Playa Blanca.

Caleta de Fuste Beach

The resort is built around the large horseshoe shaped cove. The natural features of this cove mean that there is a gentle slope into the sea and is protected from waves.
The beach has been created from imported sand and other bathing areas have been made around lagoons created by digging into the rock behind the shoreline.

Puerto del Rosario Beach

Puerto Del Rosario, on the east coast of Fuerteventura, has white sand stretching for about ½ mile. During the summer ther is a flag system to show when it is safe to swim and there are lifeguards on the beach during busy periods. This beach is often used by the locals and is also popular with surfers.

Cofete Beach

The beach at Cofete is a white sandy beach. It is not easily reached and this means that there is usually plenty of room. The waves and current can be a bit on the rough side and would recommend taking great care if bathing.

Lobos Island Beach

A trip to the Island of Lobos will give you access to a beautiful sandy beach which has a gentle slope into the water, ideal for bathing, and there are plenty of fish to be seen if you fancy snorkelling.

Flag Beach

Flag Beach is located just outside of Corralejo and is popular with water sports enthusiasts. The Flag Beach water sports centre is right on the beach where you can book your lessons.

Grandes Playas Beach

 Grandes Playas Beach is located 5 minute drive from Corralejo where you will find miles of beaches to choose from and enjoy your day.

Waikiki Beach

 In the main town of Corralejo you have the Waikiki Beach, which is a secluded bay and ideal for families with young children. There is also a restaurant located on this beach.
