Spent a lovely January week in a hotel directly on the beach. The sand was some of the finest I have been on. Lovely beach for a stroll, seems to go on forever if you are happy to clamber over rocks every once in a while.

This is a very fun place to visit - we actually went there twice during our holidays. The lagoons during low tide are great for smaller kids and the area is very nice even for only having a walk. Kitesurfing and other activities were available.

I absolutely loved this beach. Soft sandy shores and crystal clear turquoise sea with sea water lagoons and sand bank islands. Easy to walk on the damp sand and the breeze is cooling in the hot sun.

This beach is just stunning!!! Make sure you go after the tide is high so you can see all the lagoons that form near the Hotel Gorriones. It is an extraordinary beach to just walk from one side to the other (9km) as it only has three accesses the bits in the middle are stunning and isolated. It is also... More

A great beach with fantastic soft sand. The sea can be a bit rough because of the wind which is quite prevalent here. I would recomend a wind break if you are going there for sun bathing. Also, this part of the island is frequented by lots of Naturists so if you don't like the idea of lots of people... More

It's great to spend a sunny day walking nude for hours along the beach. It can however be rather windy.

The beach, where you can hike, swim, and just enjoy life. Incredible photographic object. I can´t wait to see that beach again in my next trip to Fuerteventura.

We drove from Morro Jable to explore the beach at Sotavento. It only took around 10 to 15 minutes in the car and was well worth the effort. Beautiful sands, clear waters, tiny fish swimming around your feet and gorgeous views. Although popular with locals and tourists, we did not feel it was too crowded. Beware of the tides here,...
