Jandia peninsula: endless beaches in Fuerteventura

Located in the south of Fuerteventura, Jandia is one of the most relevant tourist resorts in the island, well known worldwide by its endless sandy beaches. On the east coast, it is less exposed to the wind (but it can be strong anyway). Top class resorts along an unbroken sucession of beaches (in total, more than 20km), sun and perfect temperatures all year round are the main attractives of the area. And not far from there, on the southern tip and the rugged west coast, deserted beaches await for the adventorous.

How to get there
From the airport, take FV-2 to the south. This is the main road in the island. Past Costa Calma you will be following the coast, with the mountains on your right and the beaches on your right. There are several exits for the hotels or the beaches. At the end, you will arrive to Morro Jable, the most developed area.
To get to the beaches in the south and the west you have to continue after Morro Jable. The paved road finishes shortly after the village and leads to a dirt track that goes uphill. It is there that you have to take the detour to your destiny.

The beaches
Starting from the south, the continuous strip of sand is usually divided into 6 beaches (you can find different versions on other sites):
  • El Matorral / Morro Jable. Most hotels are here. This is the most urbanized area, with a promenade and a lighthouse in the middle on the beach. However, the bushes at the back of the beach are of an endemic species and so the area between the promenade and the beach itself is a nature reserve you could only cross throug the official wooden paths. 
  • Butihondo. This golden sand beach opens up after crossing a narrow pass. 2 km long, and usually not many people here.
  • Esquinzo. Another beach, narrower than the previous ones. Here you can find an area where nudists predominate.
  • Mal Nombre. Another narrow pass, with round stone shelters that provide some privacy.
  • Risco del Paso. The most remarcable are the huge sand dunes.
  • Sotavento. The jewel in the zone. The area of the beach suffers a huge variation at tide changes, creating blue lagoons and golden sand islands in continuous change. An image you will never forget.
The other side of the peninsula is totally different. Wild, deserted, strong wind and sea currents do not allow for tourist development in the otherwise fabulous Cofete beach.
In most beaches you can find all the typical facilities of a beach resort like sunbeds or beach bars or even water sports centers.

This can be the paradise for nudists. It is very common, and even if it is more frequent in certain sectors, you can take off your clothes wherever you want. Remember, we are talking about kilometers of sandy beaches, so chances to be alone are huge. Even if you like to walk naked don't need to worry when you pass textile areas. Coexistence is normal and I have even seen people naked on the sunbeds in front of the hotels (but this is not the norm). Nevertheless, you have to dress in the beach bars.

I like:
  • Whatever you like, you have it. From beach bars to water sport schools or solitary places
  • The sun shining almost every day
I don't like:
  • The wind, perfect for windsurfers or kite-surfers, but not for sunbathing
  • Some hotels ruining the landscape

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
