It is possible to walk away from Hotel Melia Gorionnes and the wind surf centre to an empty beach with spectacular scenery - this beach is largely undeveloped, quiet and has a warm lagoon behind the sand bar when the tide is right - nudity, partial nudity and beachwear are all acceptable. This remains Fuertaventura almost free of mass tourism.

Probably one of the most beautiful and largest beach I've ever seen. The sand just seems to go on for miles, about 17 I believe! The water is crystal clear. Easy, free parking.

Beautiful white sandy beach which seems to go on for miles. Naturists share the beach. Kitesurfers fill the sky as it is usually windy in this area. Well worth a visit. TIP: go south of the Risco del Paso turnoff for a few miles and look for a sign for Mal Nombre. The road sign will show a picture of... More

Amazing place where you can feel this great feeling of holidays. Great view, clean water. Good place for surfing. My second favorite place in Fuerteventura. Place which you must see! Sometimes windy!

We've been last week in Fuerteventura in the area called Jandía, the weather was a little bit chilled,but worth the visit, was our third time there, and we will return.
