beaching in Fuerteventura

 Español

To finish off out tour of the Canary Islands [for now] we turn to the island of Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands and is another popular destination for tourists wanting to get some year-round sun. The island can be quite windy (in fact Fuerteventura comes from the spanish words ‘strong wind’ ) and average temperatures range from 17˚C in January to 25˚C in August. It is particularly popular for surfers and windsurfers and there are many surfing schools dotted around the island. Towns and resorts tend to be on the coast as there are many mountains in land. With 152 beaches along its coastline, visitors are spoilt for choice on where to go.

One of the most popular areas for naturists to stay is the north-eastern town of Corralejo which has many hotels (including naturist friendly), restaurants and bars. The water here is good for swimming although can be rough at times if windy. It has 7 miles of golden sand which is almost entirely naturist friendly and has a large dune area which backs onto a nature reserve.

In the south, the most popular destinations are Costa Calma and Morro Jable. Just south of Costa Calma is the Jandia stretch of beaches which has a wide area of beach to explore and is also very popular with naturists.

The water here can be calmer than the north. Morro Jable is a large tourist town and resort and can be a good place to stay if you like lots of local amenities.

Whether it’s Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote or Tenerife, the Canary Islands are an ideal place to visit for some sun and relaxation.
