What a fantastic beach it goes on forever The only down side is it can be vey windy, but it is a must to go to. The lagoon when the tide comes in is a fantastic sight. If you can find a spot out of the wind you can spend hours watching the kite surfers enjoying the sea.

This is one of the longest beaches in the south of Fuerteventura. You'll find lots of wind and kite surfers there.Since it is so long, you'll find a place to yourself, if you walk along a little bit. There where quite a few nudists there, so be aware, in case you mind. Access into the water is nice and shallow,... More

Superb vast sandy beach, never crowded! You can walk for miles. Lagoons form between the sea and shore as the tide comes in - popular with kite-surfers while the surf boarders go out to the sea proper. Loved the wildlife - the birds, flowers, salt marsh and dune plants and Barbary Ground Squirrels. Spectacular views from the tops of the... More

A lovely beach to walk along, which can be followed for miles to Morro Jable. New visitors just have to be aware that a lot of sunbathers discard all of their clothes.

We walked and drove to this beach and it is so clean and isolated. With the exception of the windsurfers there is nobody and the beach looks better than the Caribbean!

Probably the most amazing beach on the island, crystal clear water, turquoise sea, and miles of soft white sand. Very picturesque, clean and accessible.
