Fuerteventura…

This summer, towards the end of June, I went on holiday on this magical, wild and adventurous island, that stunned me with its amazing landscapes and scenarios.

I rented a car for the full week that I spent there so I had the opportunity to properly explore it, from North to South (which is just an hour and a half drive anyway, so suuuuuper easy and worth it).

I was based up north the island, 10 minutes walk from the centre of Corralejo, a really nice village full of character.

But let’s stop now with this generic talks and let’s dive right into what I visited and the beaches that I liked the most about this little paradise next to Morocco.

 

  • LAS DUNAS

This amazing beach was litterally next to where my hotel was based (5-10 minutes by car). You had to park the car on the sideway of the street and then walk trough the dunes until the beach. I’m not going lo lie, the walk was just 5 minutes but it felt longer because it was boiling hot and the sand felt like ash undernith your feet, buuuuuut it was totally worth it for the view, the seetrough water and quiet beach envirolement.

  • CALETA DE FUSTE

Caleta de fuste was more like an open beach without many rocks and hidden coves, when I normally prefer the last ones because I think they are way more characteristic. So this pictures were taken on the way there, were the water was clear and the ocean wild.

  • AJUY BEACH

Ajuy beach (playa de Ajuy) is found in the municipality of Pájara, south of Fuerteventura. It is a small beach with black sand, where the wind doesn’t usually blow with much strength thanks to all the caves that surround it.

  • SOTAVENTO BEACH

This tongue of land includes huge tracts of pale golden sand and lagoons to reach the ocean. It is situated on the south-east coast of the island and it stretches for miles, creating a real oasis of relax. Morro Jable is a turistc city nearby that is worth to have a stroll at if you are in the area.

 

  • EL COTILLO BEACH

At last but not least.

This stunning beach, my favourite among all the ones that I visited, is located in the north-east of Fuerteventura, next to El Cotillo village. The land here extends into a series of family-friendly coves of white sand and calm turquoise waters. As you can tell I found mine.
