Travel Guide

Amy Adejokun Expert destination Spain

The nicest and most impressive beaches in Fuerteventura can be found on the Jandia Peninsula in the far south of the island. With its long sandy beaches separated by cliffs, Costa Calma is today seeing more and more modern constructions spring up.

Costa Calma: what to do?

Kitesurfing if you feel like it! In July and August, the beach of Jandia, which stretches for almost 16 miles from Morro Jable to Costa Calma, hosts the World Championships.

The large fine sandy beach of Playa Jandia, which is 15 miles long. This famous beach attracts kitesurfers and windsurfers from around the world thanks to its ideal conditions and regular winds. The sight of hundreds of sails of all colours swirling above the waves is truly magical! This is also the spot where the World Championships are held.
