TOP 8 Fuerteventura Beaches for Lovers of White Sand and Blue Sea

Photo taken by 123rf.com.  

Fuerteventura has more than 150 beaches, meaning that those who love the sun, sand and the sea will have plenty to do here. The second-largest Canary Island is characterised by strong winds, which is why it’s so popular with water sports enthusiasts. In Fuerteventura, everyone can find their beach, as they range from surfers’ paradise to quiet cerulean lagoons, and from empty, wild shores to colourful and busy coastlines. Here are 10 of the island’s most unique beaches.

Caleta de Fuste

This 800-metre-long beach, located near Fuerteventura’s main airport, is like the island’s business card, greeting visitors with beautiful views outside the windows of their planes. This cosy beach, situated at the very centre of a hotel town, is especially popular with tourist families.

Corralejo

Corralejo, located on the Northern tip of the island, is probably its most popular resort. Right next to it you’ll find tens of kilometres of beautiful, white-sand beaches. Moreover, shining in the horizon you’ll see not just the blue sky, but also the tropical island of Lobos. Corralejo also attracts the most water sports enthusiasts.

Sotavento

The name of this beach was borrowed from the islands of Cape Verde. A five-kilometre-long beach of the same name can be found in Fuerteventura’s southeast.

Kofete

Kofete is probably the most unique beach the Canaries can offer. If you want to reach it, however, you’ll have to drive for 20 km on an unpaved road that snakes around mountains in the southernmost tip of the island. Once you arrive, you’ll probably be quite badly ruffled by wind, but the wild beauty of the island and the nearby 800-metre-high mountains will make you feel like you're in a dream.

Esmeralda Beach, Costa Calma

It’s one of the island’s most popular beaches, located close to the small and cosy resort town of Costa Calma. Here you’ll find the bluest waters of the Atlantic, tempting you to dive in.

Gran Tarajal Beach

It’s an excellent place for fishing, where you can see your dinner being caught right in front of you. This great beach, located in the Eastern part of Fuerteventura, is mostly populated by locals and visitors on a longer stay.

Esquinzo Beach

Don’t mistake this for the other popular beach, called Ezquinzo-Butihondo Beach. This pearl of the island is hiding in Fuerteventura’s North and is 6 km away from the closes town, which makes it an excellent place to run away from tourist-generated noise, although you’ll still have to deal with surfers.

Moro Chable

Moro Chable is located opposite Corralejo, on the other side of the island. It’s a real tourist centre with kilometres of beautiful and well-maintained beaches. From here you can also easily reach the aforementioned Kofete Beach.

Lobos is not a tropical island, its pretty much desert other than the few endemic species that can cope with salt water. Its spelt Morro Jable and Cofete

I love the Canary Islands, having visited all the four main ones, Fuerteventura twice (I do like this one!). There just seems to be a lot more space for everyone in Fuerteventura compared to Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Whether it's because it's less popular than the other three I'm not sure. If you want night life all night, then don't go there. That suits me which is why I've chosen it twice and probably will again.
