White sand, lovely blue sea.

A huge expanse of beautiful white sand stretching for miles alongside a crystal clear azure blue sea. There are a few tidal lagoons that are very popular with kiteboarders and... read more

A huge expanse of beautiful white sand stretching for miles alongside a crystal clear azure blue sea. There are a few tidal lagoons that are very popular with kiteboarders and kite surfers alike. It's nice to take a stroll along the beach and watch them zip up and down at speed on the water. Worth a visit.

I was there for few hours and it was an awesome place to visit. Very nice view. A must visit place if you go to Fuerteventura island. Also the roads are very beautiful, long and surrounded with dry mountain.

The best beach ever! An absolute must for wind/kite surfers and lovers of undisturbed sand. Once a month the sand becomes a lagoon.

Peace and tranquillity certainly on the mid to southern-most part of the island. Not much to dislike here although it won't suit all tastes, however we LIKE it VERY MUCH

The beach is unique with an amazing view of the ocean. Wind is side-off and you can ride in a clean and transparent water as long as you can. In Sotavento you can find good wind even if in the Island is weak. And even if you ar not a windsurfer or kiter you probably agree that is one of... More
