    Great Beach
    Stunning wilderness with mile after mile of unspoiled coast. A large contingent of kite and windsurfers. Therefore it is windy. A sandbar sirts off the beach between a lagune and the Atlantic. A great walk that can be achieved by anyone willing to walk out. Water in the lagune is below knee level and the sand bar is easy to reach. A visit here is a must whichever part of the island you are staying.

    Big waves
    Such a beautiful peaceful beach. Very windy so although many naturists don't seem to mind the cool wind I was wrapped up in warm fleece and leggings so worth taking some layers. Did not swim as the sea was very rough with potential rip tides. Enjoyed seeing the many species of feathered birds with the nature area. When the high tides fills the lagoon it is soon full of windsurfers taking advantage of the waist deep water.

    Picture postcard scenic beach
    First time visit to this part of Sotavento beach which by way of a location pinpoint is just by the large Melia Fuerteventura hotel. Reached from the FV2 turning just after Costa Calma there is a tarmac road leading to dusty car park and a further dirt track to a closer beach car park if you fancy the offroad drive. The views are stunning with a lagoon, streams, sandy mountains and miles and miles of pure sand. Popular with water sports enthusiasts there is plenty of room for everyone! Worth visiting even if just to admire the view and the surrounding landscape.

This beach is n1 in Fuerteventura and in the top 10 European ones

Very clean long white sand beach, against sand hills, turquoise waters, hardly buildings around, easy to get to....and a pleasure to discover through long walks.

A true paradise!

Best beach on the island. So large, clean, far from the city, heaven on earth. You can see at the very far left some resorts and oasis that make you feel like you’re in Az or Nevada lol, impressive and good for photoshoots

The best beach in the whole Fuerteventura!
Super sandy, quiet, not too many people and easy to swim.
One tip: bring some snacks as no restaurants nor shops nearby.

You have to visit it yourself and see with your own eyes!

also pay attention to the tides' times - it changes the coast significantly
