“Miles of pristine white beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We visited the Jandia playa for the day during our recent holiday in Fuerteventura, and may well base ourselves in this resort on our next trip to the island. The temperature was about five degrees higher here than in the North of the island, so nearly thirty in February can't be bad. Amazing white beaches as far as the eye can see, and plenty of sunbeds behind wind breaks which make them real suntraps. This resort is a particular favourite with German holidaymakers.

OF THIS MARVELLOUS ISLAND. Nothing compares to it. Try the beaches if you like organized sunbathing or with children

Went shopping here to the shopping centre which had a good selection of shops and eateries. Worth a day trip out on the free bus.

“jandia beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Have just spent our 2nd visit to Jandia and cannot wait to return next year. The main beaches in front of the hotels are outstanding, but the best beaches are along the stretch in between Morro jable and costa calma.We took a bus from jandia to the Los Gorriones Hotel on Sotavento Beach, which is amazing on its own, about 2km long by 1km wide and practically deserted away from the hotel, we walked along the beach thru Risco del paso, los verdes and Mal nombre, all stunning, white sand and turquoise crystal clear warm sea, very few people around, we walked all the way back to Morro Jable, about 6-7km, not as drastic as it sounds as the scenery is amazing and reminiscent of the carribean, and there are several beach bars along the way for a pit stop. A couple of days later we decided to walk again , this time from Jandia to Sotavento and were pleased to see Sotavento lagoon had flooded, this happens twice a month for about 4-5 days, and its well worth seeing, you can check the tide timetables at http://www.rene-egli.com/wind-weather/tide-table/
Jandia itself is a quiet relaxing place, theres a few shops,a dozen bars etc and a few nice restaurants in the old town area, perfect as far as im concerned, if you want a more lively place then Correlejo is more for you, the dunes there are worth a visit. Went to Caleta de fuste about 8 years ago, very good, but returned 3 years later and found the main street of bars and restaurants was like a ghost town, the bar owners place the blame on the rise of the all inclusive,shame.
