The best beaches and coves of Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is one of the most spectacular Spanish islands, in my opinion the most spectacular, although there are a couple of them that I have not visited yet so I cannot be completely sure. Its beaches are dreamlike and have nothing to envy any of the many Caribbean beaches that so many tourists receive every year. I have always said that I do not understand why people here take so many hours by plane to go to the Caribbean when in Fuerteventura there is an incredible paradise, although it is clear that visiting any part of the Caribbean is also wonderful.

On this Canary Island you find all kinds of beaches with different characteristics, and especially spectacular beaches for surfing or windsurfing, sports that are widely practiced there. There are countless beaches and coves in Fuerteventura , so I will try to make a good summary of the best ones, I have visited many of them and I can assure you that they are wonderful.

Giniginamar Beach

It is towards the south of the island, in the direction of Gran Tarajal from Puerto del Rosario, which is the capital. It is a windy beach although its waters are very calm. It is made of black sand and measures just over half a kilometer, with a width of about 50 meters depending on the tide, which can rise a lot. Around there are some urbanizations and various services such as restaurants or shops.

Gran Tarajal Beach

Fuerteventura beach
It has black sand and pic贸n and is in the south, in the municipality called Gran Tarajal. It is an urban beach that measures just over half a kilometer in length and is also windy although there is hardly any swell. It has a promenade where you can find several restaurants, bars or shops.

La Pared Beach

It is one of my favorites since it is in a totally rustic environment and very few people go, so you find a lot of tranquility. It measures 250 meters and has fine golden sand, also with a lot of wind and strong waves.

Cofete Beach

Fuerteventura beach 2
It is one of the best known on the island and is in the coastal area that is called the same and that extends about 14 kilometers, although the beach itself does not occupy all the space since it is divided into several beaches .

Sotavento Beach

It is the most famous because it has a length of almost 6 kilometers and its width in some parts reaches one kilometer. It is really spectacular, there may be many people but in reality you do not have anyone several meters away, in addition to the fact that there are also several dunes in the landscape and you feel an immense freedom. It is probably the best beach I have been to in my life and it seems that it is in the middle of nowhere and with hardly any services, but perhaps that tranquility is the best.

Punta Blanca beach

It is a small beach that is about 90 meters long and is in the La Oliva area, with a width of about 12 meters. It is nudist and totally virgin, with a lot of wind but with calm sea and fine sand and gravel.

El Charc贸n Beach

It is of white sand and stones , with a lot of wind but with calm waters. Many nudists also come to it thanks to the fact that it is not very big and you can have a lot of privacy.

La Goleta Beach

It measures 150 meters long and about 30 wide. It is semi-urban and the sand is fine and golden, with wind but calm sea. There are many services, such as rental of water sports equipment, hammocks, umbrellas, restaurants, bars or shops.

Corralejo Beach

It is in the town of the same name, one of the best known in Fuerteventura. It measures almost 200 meters and is made of fine, golden sand. Around it there are many hotels, bars, shops, restaurants and all kinds of services. It has a marina .
