Beaches on Fuerteventura

You won't need to go far on Fuerteventura to find a perfect beach, even if you are intent on seeking out solitude from holidaymakers. The best are found around Jandia on the southern tip of the island. Juan Gomez is one of these, with an enticing stretch of golden sand and reached by turning off the Morro Jable-Punta de Jandia Road. In the same section of the island is the pebbly black volcanic beach of La Pared, while right next door is the beach of Viejo Rey, a long stretch of golden sand flanked by dunes. Giniginamar is recommended for peace and quiet, surrounded by palm trees and other indigenous plants. If you're looking for a family-friendly beach, the southern Costa Calma is a great option because the conditions are ideal for safe swimming and the facilities are good. For remote beaches tourists can hire a 4x4 and explore the tracks leading to the sea on the west coast. Nudism is tolerated on all the island's beaches.
