If you visit Jandia I would totally recommend that you go to the beautiful beaches of Playa de la Barca and Risco El Paso. To be honest they are basically one beach but given the distances involved you can be forgiven for thinking of them as two. Playa Barca is the beach where the Melia Gorriones is situated and is...

absolutely beatiful and full natural wonder. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!! Nothing else can be said and I hope I can return there soon. The play of high tide / low tide is great and full of fun. To enjoy this was one big joy. Never will forget this beauty of nature.

Just hire a car and go here esp when the tide is out and the lagoon fills. It's so so beautiful. You can watch the kitesurfing and windsurfing dudes. There's a few beach bars. It's heaven. Trust me. Can be a bit windy though. Be warned.

Great place for surfers and beautiful scenery, but very strong wind all the time and nearly no possibility to swim in the sea.

For me Risco del Paso - the best beach in the area of Morro Jable. Amazing during the low tide, gorgeaus during the high tide.

we pulled off the main road after spotting the azure sea and stunning beach. Great for water sports or just creating the best tan ever if that what floats your boat

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.
