To be honest, when it comes to choosing the best beaches in Fuerteventura it is true to say that you are spoilt for choice. There are very few bad beaches in Fuerteventura and such a variety that there is one to suit everyone’s taste. Whether you like busy beaches with amenities or a secluded beach, perhaps to yourself, then this is the place.
I think they are some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Holidays in Fuerteventura are all about sun, sand and sea. You will never be wondering where to go in Fuerteventura or in finding things to do in Fuerteventura.
Most of the beaches in Fuerteventura are used by naturists, at least in part. The town beaches generally aren’t, particularly those in Caleta de Fuste, but most are at least naturist friendly.
My Favourite Beaches
These are just my personal favourite Fuerteventura best beaches, not that there aren’t some other lovely beaches in Fuerteventura. I have chosen these as not only are they beautiful but they are easily reached by car or public transport.
El Cotillo Beaches
These include the lovely lagoons to the north of the village and the more rugged beaches to the south.The lagoons have calm safe water to swim in and lots of little beaches and areas to sunbath in. The beaches south of the village are popular with surfers and kite surfers.

This run along the beautiful sand dunes national park for a number of miles and include soft white sand and clear waters. All can be walked to from Corralejo town (a fair walk), alternatively get the Puerto del Rosario bus and get off at the two hotels or you can park a car at a convenient point on the road.

The Jandia beaches are located in the south west of the island. They run for about 20 miles from Morro Jable to the south to Costa Calma to the north. There are various roads coming off the main road which lead to the beach all along it’s length. Try Esquinzo, Butihondo, Sotavento and Esmeralda beaches which all have exits signposted off the main road.
The two other beaches I would add to the list are La Pared towards the south west and Cofete in the south. Canary Islands beaches don’t get any better than these best beaches in Fuerteventura.
