Sotavento - Mal Nombre

Mal Nombre is the name given to the southest section of the huge Sotavento beach in southern Fuerteventura. Never crowded, it is hard to believe this wonderful beach is so close to the mass tourist resorts in Jandia.

Last visited: october 2015

How to get there

It can be complicated to find the way to this beach. First, you have to leave road FV-2 at the exit indicated "Mal Nombre". At the large roundabout, take the second exit to an old residential complex. There is a nice, straight road in perfect conditions, but do not take it, it only lead to an area with a partially build hote. Instead, follow the signs to "Tierra Dorada" beach bar. This means driving along a narrow poorly paved road that descends abruptly to the beach. It is only 1 km long and there is a parking area at the bottom.

The beach

Since this is only a section of a larger beach, it is difficult to define the limits of Mal Nombre. Nevertheless, it is some kilometres long. The width is quite variable, but in general the beach is not very wide. There even are a few narrow passes where at high tide you have to wade through the water or climb over heaps of black rocks, since the sand disappears completely.
To the south you reach Esquinzo beach, to the north, the rest of Sotavento beach (Risco del Paso and Playa Barca).
As opposed to the west coast, here you would not usually find big waves, but strong winds are typical. This is why the area is appreciated by kitesurfers, and the reason for those circles of black stones.


The section near the parking area concentrates all facilities: public toilets, a beach bar and sun lounges. Nothing else in the rest of the beach.


Very common on the whole beach out of the beach bar, but even there it is not strange to find nude sunbathers there. If you want some privacy, you can use one of the stone circles so that people walking along the shore can not see you.


Other nude beaches in the area

I like:
  • Long and unspoilt beach, not as crowded as other beaches around it
I don't like:
  • The road to the beach

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.
