Fuerteventura’s best beaches are in the south of the island with endless stretches of sand resembling the Caribbeans. Many holiday hotels in Fuerteventura are located short walks away from the most popular beaches.
Behind the bed of a ravine appears Esquinzo beach, located on the north coast, near El Cotillo. This beach is a virgin sandy area where you can feel solitude in its purest form. The blackness of the cliffs that enclose the beach combines with the gold of the shore, enhancing the colors of the terrain even more.
Playa de los Charcos
There are those who prefer the pool over the beach and vice versa. However, a few kilometers from El Cotillo, Playa de los Charcos seduces everyone. Thanks to the natural rock formations that create a landscape of white sand. You must see the small lagoons like swimming pools breaking the bravery of the ocean.
Above all, if you’re looking for pristine beaches away from the crowds you should make a trip to Jandia or Sotavento both located in the south of the island. Wonderful bays, empty beaches, white and fine sand, lagoons and shores. All makes this place a perfect choice for a romantic vacation in the Canary Islands.

Cofete is one of its most attractive beaches. The beach is in the south of the Jandía peninsula. Surrounded by mountains, golden sand and difficult to access.
