Hi, do the beaches shelve slowly into the sea in this area or are they quite steep drops? Also are there fish in the sea by the beaches to feed at all? Thanks!

Sorry I can't answer your questions as I never went into the sea here as it was really windy and rough the day that we were there

The beach shelves quite slowly, but you can get strong currents and large waves, good for surfing, body surfing or kite surfing or general swimming.

The water is crystal clear and good for diving or snorkelling, as for feeding the fish ?

I don't know.

( I never seen anyone do that )

Suppose you could try .

Quite gentle beaches but not for the really small. Some small fish around but not sure about feeding.

Yes, it is quite deep and not even, doesn't suit toddlers. It is not generally recommended to feed fish, but people do it anyway. It is a bit like a fish tank close to the shore.

Hi. It is important to understand that the main beach ( by the light house) is very different from the beach which I personally loved which was the otherside of the harbour. We went to both. If you want to snorkel and see fish (plenty of fish though nothing spectacular like the Caribbean although I did see an octopus on my last day) and have a small quiet bay with just locals and no amenities then head for the harbour. Walk past the turtle nursery and keep going and you will find the most amazing bay. If on the other hand you want bars and amenities and a large expanse of sand then head to the beach at the Jandia end near the light house. We didn't see any fish where we were but it goes for miles so we may not have been in the right place. My favourite by far was the old town of Morro Jable about 15min walk from harbour with plenty restaurants and bars but away from the main drag of the beach and shops although we did both! It was windy when were there (left on 21st Sept) so the bay was more sheltered and had overhanging rocks which shield you from wind and or the sun.Be aware though that when the AMAS or OLSEN ferrys leave they produce large waves so don't be close to the rocks snorkelling then! Hope this helps? Both beaches are clean and sandy and are amazing.

Hi they shelv gently about 20 meters then become deeper to swim.

We found 4 types of fish on the beaches they are in pkenty of groups.

The beach at Morro Jable is about 20 kioometers long.

One day we choose an other side of this beach and to get back to our part of the beach was an out to walk in the send.

This is a magical highly recommended.

Hello, yes the beaches do shelve gently into the sea. I would say that it is possible to stand at approximately 10m from the waters edge depending, of course, on your height. There is no sudden drop off. Also, yes there are fish in the sea that will feed from you at close quarters. They are not especially colourful or exotic but fish nonetheless. This beach is very long & I can't be certain that my review is accurate for its entire length. I hope I have answered your questions.

Yes it goes down slowly but if you want to see and feed the fish and there’s even reley big sting rays go to the harbour it cost about 3 Euro and walk straight past the restaurant and like a little beach and there’s lots of fish and some of the locals go swimming there to as we were fishing and swimming
