THE spot for kite surfing

Lovely natural lagoon, excellent for water sports at any wind direction. Lovely sand and warm water + abundance of equipment and instructors.

This is one of the best beaches in fuerteventura!. The water is crystal clear and it's quite shallow for a long way out so really safe for the kids!

The most beautiful beach I ever been. Ebb and flow are spectacular and the colour of the ocean - breathtaking. Huge, wide, long beach with white sand, amazing lagoons and crystal clear, warm water.

Don't miss Sotavente beach. But also the beach next to Sotavente is wonderful! Enjoy the lagoons. Take Into account tide and you will see lovely areas.

This is a huge wide and very long beach. There is very nice sand and very warm water. The break in small and over the sand for a long way and so good for kids. Some nudity.

We have spent there 3-4hrs today. In fact there was no lagoon now but even that place is amazing! Lot's of kite surfers, not so many people, windsurfers. Kite Center - is a perfect place!

We really loved Sotavento beach and especially enjoyed the lagoon that temporarily filled up the beach. It's a great spot for windsurfers and kite surfers.

Probably the loveliest beach in Fuerteventura (and maybe in mainland Europe too). Miles of soft golden sand, gentle slope into the water, backed by spectacular dunes and cliffs. Generally naturist, so it's quiet and unspoilt. We never tire of this place.

Beautiful, long sandy beach, water not too deep, good for families, beach is divided into 2 parts: wind surfers and the rest of beach goers. There was a life guard when we were there
