What are the best beaches in Fuerteventura?

There’s a whole world of coast to explore on this island, so we’ve compiled some of the top beaches in Fuerteventura that you won’t want to miss. Trust us.

  • Playa de Sotavento – an all-round crowd-pleaser located away from the big resorts, with 17 miles of shoreline, inviting lagoons that stay warm all year round, and a whole menu of watersports

  • Playa Grande – a natural setting for the perfect dash of relaxation in Corralejo (swimsuit optional, thanks to the dedicated nudist area at the southern part of the beach) before hitting the bars

  • Gran Tarajal – less popular with tourists, these fine, dark sands are the best way to immerse yourself with the locals, with beach football and surrounding restaurants where you can sample fresh seafood

  • Playa del Puertito – if you prefer your beaches a little less traditional, then you’ll love this modest coastal spot, with rocky, volcanic landscapes and natural pools of turquoise water

  • Playa de Cofete – this hiker’s paradise is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle - simply grab your camera and take in the wild landscapes of this blustery beach

Top tip
Described as the ‘crown jewel of the Canaries’, the wild sands of Cofete are the definition of a hidden gem. Sweeping between the azure sea and jagged mountains, the 12km-long beach is a photographer’s paradise, and is usually totally deserted. You’ll need a rugged hire car for this one, but we promise the journey’s worth it!
