Jandia

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

The prettiest and most impressive beaches in Fuerteventura can be found on the Jandia Peninsula in the far south of the island. Towards the isolated lighthouse of Punta de Jandia lies an untamed coast, just like on the western part of the peninsula. The symbol of the city is a large white lighthouse overlooking the ocean. Thanks to the constant trade winds from April to October, Jandia is renowned for being one of the best spots in the world for sailing and kitesurfing.

To see

The huge beach of Jandia, one of the most beautiful on the island. The magnificent Esquinzo Beach. The village and harbour of Morro Jable. The isolated lighthouse of Punta de Jandia. The large white lighthouse, symbol of Jandia, overlooks the ocean. The lively bars, restaurants, shopping centres and nightclubs in the seaside resort of Jandia.

To do

A kitesurfing paradise! In July and August, the famous beach of Jandia, which stretches for almost 16 miles from Morro Jable to Costa Calma, hosts the World Championships.

pros

  • +  The 16 miles of pristine beach with fine sand.
  • +  The area is a world-renowned kitesurfing spot.

cons

  • -  The airport is quite far away.
  • -  The hotels are not that great.
  • -  It is windy for most of the year.

To think about

Jandia is practically the furthest area from the airport, which is located 53 miles north, not far from the capital, Puerto del Rosario. Unsurprisingly, it takes just over an hour to get there via the motorway. This part of the island is fairly windy, making it ideal for windsurfing but not necessarily for swimming.

To avoid

Avoid swimming alongside kiteboards, as this can be dangerous!

To try

The famous papas (Canarian potatoes) served with the inevitable mojo sauce.
