A beach that goes on for about 27 klms, beautiful sand, hardly a shell or pebble in sight, and plenty of water sports on offer for participants, or like us just to watch and admire, whilst wishing we were 16 instead of 60!

Loved the golden colour of this beach. It was clean and did not have lava through it which made it easy to walk along. A car is necessary to access this area.

No comprise. You must see it through the whole day. According to the tide the beach become an impressionable laguna with the water deep just 30 to 50 cm. The beach, by its own, it's not particular, but the entire beach with the lagoon is spectacular. If you're not residing nearby consult before the tide calendar to get the best... More

This beach amazed me, it was like stepping onto a carribean beach. It was surrounded by sandy mountains and high dunes of white sands. The sea is bright blue and washes over the beach on high tide leaving you to walk between settled water to one side, with blue sea on the other as you walk along a platform of... More

This beach is remote from the main town of Jandia and is flanked by large sand dunes and natural vegetation . It is popular with naturists [ who seem to use the only one end ] and wind surfers. It has lovely sand and is very clean and not too busy. There is one surf shack where you can buy... More

I have been to many beaches and i can safely say that this is one of the most beautiful that i have ever seen. On the Jandia Peninsula, you can walk forever across shallow pools and see straight to the bottom for miles. Perfect for kids to splash around. Parts of the beach are very quiet and no one around...

Playa Risco del Paso is a stunning beach, ideal for those who like to relax and those who like to wind surf. There is a sandbar that gets surrounded as the tide comes in and makes getting back to land an adventure! The beach bar is basic but serves a welcome cold drink.

The beach at Sotavento has to be seen to be believed.An expanse of wide flat white sand that goes on for miles.At high tide it floods with around average 6 inches of water that is so warm it is like being in the bath.It is the only place I have experienced were shoals of fish swim around your feet as...
