Naturist beaches in Fuerteventura | Naturist Accommodation

Fuerteventura is a very naturist friendly island. Although there are no designated naturist beaches anywhere in Fuerteventura, you will find naturists on almost every beach provided that is not in a built up area of a resort or town.

The law in Spain (and therefore in Fuerteventura) allows for public nudity in any “natural” place. Most beaches in Fuerteventura fit that description perfectly.

The Main Naturist Beaches of Fuerteventura

Corralejo Dunes Beaches

These are also known as the Corralejo Grandes Playas. They are located to the south of Corralejo and run for miles along the coast. Although there may be naturists all along the beach, naturism mostly starts just south of the Oliva Beach Hotel and stretch right through the dunes down to the beaches that run next to the road.

Corralejo Dunes. naturist beaches fuerteventura

You will find many places to lie both among the dunes and also in stone circles near the sea that people have made. These can be found on beaches throughout the island.

You could also go for a long nude walk inland through the dunes if you wished.

The sand dunes stretch for almost 2 miles inland, for most of which you are likely to be totally on your own.

If you do go for a long walk then make sure you take water with you as it can be hard going and very dehydrating.

See the available naturist accommodation options in Corralejo towards the end of the post.

El Cotillo Naturist Beaches

El Cotillo Lagoons

These start at the northern edge of the village of El Cotillo. The first few are generally not naturist. The next beach along is Playa de la Concha (also know as Playa Chica) and this beach is generally a mixture of textile and naturist. When it is busy the right-hand, northern side of the beach tends to be the popular naturist area.

Sometimes the beach is well populated with naturists and at other times it isn’t. It is my theory that if the first few people on the beach are clothed then those that arrive afterwards follow suit. If the first are naturists then more people go naked. No-one wants to be outnumbered!

One of the many El Cotillo lagoon beaches which are mainly naturist

From then on until the lighthouse and beyond you can find many little beaches and stone circles to practice naturism.

The only time this whole area is less naturist is during the Spanish holidays in August when Spanish families spend lots of time on the beach.

Piedra Playa

This is also known as the Surfer’s beach as it is very popular with water-sports enthusiasts. 10 years ago it was 50/50 clothed/naturist but, sadly, these days it tends to be only the far end (south) of the beach.

Steps Beach (Playa del Aguila)

This is my favourite beach in the El Cotillo area. It is accessed down a few flights of Heath Robinson stairs but is well worth it. It is never crowded and attracts plenty of naturists, particularly away from the steps in either direction.

The Jandia Peninsular Beaches

Jandia naturist beaches. Naturism in Fuerteventura.

The most popular naturist beaches in this area of the south of Fuerteventura are Playa de Sotavento, Playa Esquinzo, Playa Barca and Playa de Butihondo. The biggest resort in the area is Costa Calma which has many luxury hotels fronting the beach.

You can reach the beaches at various places from the main road that runs to the south by taking one of the many smaller roads off of it, most of which which finish at the beach.

Sotavento Beach

There are mile upon mile of beautiful white sandy beaches and lovely warm turquoise sea. Finding a quiet spot to spend the day lying on the sand is not a problem.

Other Nude beaches in Fuerteventura

Cofete

Cofete beach

Cofete has 14 miles of unspoiled, normally deserted, sandy beach where you can be nude all day. It would probably be a good place to try naturism for the first time, away from others, to break you in gently.

It requires a 20km drive along a fairly bumpy track from Morro Jable but it is definitely worth the drive. There is one small cafe/bar in the small village of Cofete.

Tindaya Beach

Tindaya Beach is on the west coast towards the north of the island. It isn’t the easiest beach in the world to find but that means it is never crowded. I have been on this beach without another person in sight. The video below will sow you how to get there.

Tindaya Beach and how to get to it

La Pared

This is a small place on the south west coast of Fuerteventura. It has a lovely long beach which is quite popular with surfers and kite boarders. Plenty of naturists can be found towards the southern end.

Resorts to avoid if you are a naturist

Caleta de Fuste

Resorts to avoid for naturists in Fuerteventura

One of the most popular areas with British tourists on the island is completely devoid of naturist beaches.

There are two “beaches” in Caleta de Fuste. Both are man-made and neither are naturist (although they are at least topless). If you are a naturist, and want to stay there because of the facilities for eating/drinking etc. then you will need to hire a car to travel to the naturist beaches. You will either need to drive north to the dune beaches of Corralejo or the lagoons of El Cotillo or drive south to the beaches of Jandia.

Costa Antigua (aka Nuevo Horizonte)

This is just north of Caleta de Fuste and actually does not have any beaches for anyone to use, let alone naturists.

Fuerteventura accommodation with naturist facilities

Don Luis Bungalows in Corralejo

The Don Luis Bungalows are naturist friendly and are just a two minute walk from the centre of Corralejo. Clothing is optional anywhere on the complex including in or around the pool area. The complex has a total of five one bedroom bungalows that each sleep three adults or two adults and two children. Every bungalow has a private roof terrace and roof top shower. They all share the communal pool.

Each one is listed separately so click the links to check the availability and prices of each bungalow:

Fuerteventura Naturist Sun Club (Infiniti) is a small complex in Corralejo that is now a dedicated naturist facility. There are 4 villas and 6 apartments in the complex set around a pool and a hot tub. There is also a small bar and a nice shaded seating area.

I was recently invited to take a look around Infiniti and can confirm that it is a very nice, well maintained complex. The staff were all very friendly so I think anyone would be happy staying there. Fuerteventura Naturist Sun Club website.

Monte Marina Naturist Resort & Suite

Monte Marina

This is located in the south of Fuerteventura, near Esquinzo in Jandia. It is part of the Hotel Marina Playa and the naturist part consists of 47 apartments around a lovely swimming pool.

This overlooks the lovely Esquinzo beach and is just a short walk.

You have access to the main hotel facilities but these are not naturist. You can find the Monte Marina here and here.

Villaverde Naturist Village

A naturist village of up to 40 units is being built next year in Villaverde in the north of Fuerteventura. It is a development by the owner of Infinii above. I will update this as and when it is built. There is currently a large 4 bedroom villa on the site which can eb rented for naturist holidays. Contact Fuerteventura Naturist Sun Club

Gran Hotel Natura Corralejo

Unfortunately the Gran Hotel Natura, a naturist hotel in Corralejo, has closed due to the building needing refurbishment. It is taking place but it is not known yet if it will reopen as a naturist hotel.

Bring Old Batteries Back To Life Again

Bring old batteries back to life

If you tried my method of reviving a dead power tool battery but it either didn’t work at all, or the battery now charges but doesn’t hold its charge for very long, then it may be that one or more of the cells in the battery are faulty.

If that is the case then you are faced with three options:

  1. Buy a new expensive replacement battery or batteries
  2. Buy a new power tool complete with new batteries (which can often be cheaper than option 1 bizarrely)
  3. Learn how to replace the damaged cell/s so that you can continue to save money in the future whenever a battery fails – not just power tool batteries but all types of battery.

The following method works for many batteries including:

This works with:

  • Car Batteries
  • Laptop Batteries
  • Phone Batteries
  • Rechargeable Batteries
  • Long Life Batteries
  • Lead-Acid Batteries
  • Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Batteries
  • Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) Batteries

My favourite road in Fuerteventura

My favourite road in Fuerteventura

Although there are some lovely roads to drive on in Fuerteventura, without doubt, my absolute favourite is to drive through the Corralejo Dunes along the coast road. It runs from its southern most end at Parque Holandes along the coast and right through the wonderful Dunes Natural Park to Corralejo at its northern end.

Whenever I drive on this road, seeing the landscape, the beautiful clear turquoise sea and the beautiful white sand dunes, it always reminds me why I came to live in Fuerteventura.

My favourite road in Fuerteventura
Approaching the first beach from the south

Search for the best car hire deals in Fuerteventura

I am sure it must rank as one of the most beautiful roads in the world. Well certainly in the Canary Islands anyway.

The road gives access to all the dunes beaches, which are the most beautiful of the beaches in Fuerteventura. You can read about them, and watch a video, in my post The Dunes Beaches of Corralejo.

The plan was to close this road to through traffic once the new road fully opened. Now it seems it will remain open. You should be aware that they have reduced the speed limit to 50kph. This applies along the entire stretch but that means you will have more time to enjoy the view.

My favourite road in Fuerteventura

Be careful when you get to the first few beaches by the roads (coming from the south) as people often just back out from their parking spots without looking properly.

Renting a car in Fuerteventura

Are you coming here on holiday and wondering if renting a car in Fuerteventura is worth it?

As someone who holidayed here for 20 years, and has lived here for over 6 years, I would say, definitely, yes!

Instead of getting a coach or taxi transfer from the airport and having to spend your entire holiday by your hotel’s swimming pool, or on the local beach, renting a car in Fuerteventura allows you to get out and explore what else the island has to offer.

You can spend time on some of the beautiful, less-crowded beaches, visit a lovely restaurant in the mountains for lunch or discover some of the history of the island in lovely Betancuria.

If you have kids you can visit Oasis Park Zoo or the water park in Corralejo with ease.

Hiring a car in Fuerteventura
One of the many beautiful drives in Fuerteventura – the Dunes National Park

Car hire and petrol are cheap in Fuerteventura so hiring a car for a week will probably cost less than airport transfers or less than the cost of two people going on a coach trip.

As well as being able to use the car to explore the island, you have the convenience of transport for the entire time you are here and you don’t have to sit around waiting for coaches to get to and from the airport.

The roads in Fuerteventura are well maintained, well signposted and have very little traffic. So don’t worry, driving here is easy, even on the wrong side of the road.

Car hire in Fuerteventura

cheapest car hire in fuerteventura

When renting a car in Fuerteventura, choosing which company to use can be rather hit or miss, as anyone who has ever searched online for a hire car will know. It can also be very time consuming.

In the past I used to spend many hours trawling through individual car hire companies’ websites to try and find a deal. These days I don’t normally bother with that.

Instead I usually just use a car hire search engine to find the best deal and then, perhaps, just confirm that it is a good deal I check on the actual companies website (where it is likely to be more in my experience).

The car hire search engine I have found that has the best deals is Skyscanner. It provides a large selection to choose from, in price order, with some really incredible deals. You also book directly with the hire company themselves for peace of mind. It is best to click on a few of the options to check the conditions suit you.

You can search all the main car hire companies in one place here.

Beware of the high cost of Collision Damage Waiver that car hire companies may pressurise you to pay for on top to cover your excess. (See Car Hire Excess Insurance section below for another, much cheaper, option.)

The two most frequently asked questions on the Fuerteventura Facebook groups are “What is the best car hire company in Fuerteventura?” and “What is the cheapest car hire in Fuerteventura?”

Those posts always get a big response with replies such as ” Autoreisen every time”, “Payless, no excess, great service”, “Cicar (best value)” and other similar comments. Everyone has their particular favourite, even if they have never used another one to compare it to.

Advice

One piece of advice – Don’t just take the easy route and book a hire car through your airline or tour company. At least don’t do it without checking for other deals first. Although they may try and tell you they are offering you a good deal, more often than not they aren’t. Don’t forget, they are making commission on the booking.

One more piece of advice – Always book online before you leave. You will get a much better deal than just turning up at the airport and going to a desk. Also, in peak periods, it can be difficult to find a car if you don’t pre-book to guarantee one being available.

Car hire from Fuerteventura airport

Car hire at Fuerteventura airport
Hire car desks at Fuerteventura airport

You are likely to find the cheapest car hire in Fuerteventura Airport, rather than outside in the resorts.

There are many car hire companies operating from Fuerteventura airport. Most have their cars actually located at the airport. A few are off airport so they will transfer you to their nearby depot.

If you pick up the keys from one of the desks they will tell you which parking bay the car is in. The car hire parking is to the right of the large car park outside the terminal.

Car hire in the resorts

Just beware. Car rental rates in the resorts can be very high.

Believe it or not, I have actually seen examples of car rental rates in some of the resorts whose rates for one day are almost as much as I have paid for an entire week for a car I have picked up at the airport.

Child seats

Child seats and booster seats are mandatory, just as they are in the UK. You will be able to hire these through your car hire company but make sure you pre-book them. Many hire car companies provide these free of charge.

Car hire excess insurance

Many people don’t realise that there is an alternative to paying the hefty daily excess cover (CDW) charges that the car hire companies try and make you pay which can be more than the daily rate for hiring the car in some cases.

You can take out a separate policy before you leave home for significantly less to cover the duration of the car hire or even take out an annual policy for only £45 a year if you hire cars more than once a year. This will cover everything that the hire car company excess insurance covers as well as:

  • covers multiple drivers (provide they are on the hire agreement)
  • misfuelling (petrol instead of diesel and vice versa)
  • tyres, windscreen and under-body damage
  • towing costs

One of the many lovely empty roads in Fuerteventura

Are you coming to Fuerteventura but unsure about hiring a car and driving in Fuerteventura as you have never driven abroad before? Hopefully I can convince you to give it a try. You will see much more of the island and be glad that you did, believe me.

If you are coming from the UK and have never driven a left-hand drive car on the “wrong side” of the road before then it can be quite daunting and nerve-racking. But don’t worry. There is probably no easier place in Europe to do it for the first time than driving in Fuerteventura.

The roads in Fuerteventura are really well maintained, well signposted and have relatively little traffic on them. Most drivers here are quite patient, perhaps more so than in the UK. And you will not have to worry about traffic jams as they are an unknown phenomenon here thankfully.

is it easy to drive in Fuerteventura
Driving a left hand drive car is not difficult

On a lighter note, perhaps the hardest thing is to remember to get in the correct side. I did get into the right-hand seat once when I was not thinking. It took a split second to realise that there was no steering wheel in front of me. As there were people nearby, to save face, I made out I was looking for something in the foot-well before getting out and into the driver’s side. I think I got away with it!

You may find my article on advice for renting a car in Fuerteventura helpful.

Search for the best car hire deals in Fuerteventura

My tips for first time “wrong side of the road” drivers

The pedals (clutch, brake and accelerator) are all in the same place as in a right-hand drive car. So the only difference is that you have to use your right hand to change gear instead of your left. You will soon get used to that.

Tip 1. Staying on the correct side

Once you are driving it is pretty easy to actually always be on the correct (right) side of the road. I think the “danger” times are when you stop, perhaps for fuel, or to visit something. At that point you could just turn on to the wrong side of the road when leaving. Just make sure you take extra care after you have stopped.

Remember, the driver should always be nearest to the centre of the road, not your passenger.

Tip 2. Roundabouts

driving in fuerteventura
Fortunately there are no roundabouts like this one in Madrid

Obviously one of the big differences is that you will be going counterclockwise around the roundabouts, not clockwise. You will soon get used to that though.

No matter what they may think, the Spanish do not know how to negotiate roundabouts. They often either don’t indicate, or they indicate incorrectly, when approaching or on a roundabout.

If the roundabout is single lane then that is not normally a problem. However, on two lane roundabouts, many just stay in the right-hand (outer) lane even if they are going all the way around to go back the way they came. The safest thing for you to do, as wrong as it seems if turning left for example, is to follow suit and stay in the outside lane.

Fortunately there aren’t that many two lane roundabouts you are likely to encounter when driving in Fuerteventura so don’t worry about it.

Tip 3. Junctions

When you stop at a junction, to pull on to a main road, make sure you look in both directions to make sure nothing is coming. That way you won’t get confused and just look right, as you might in the UK, and pull out in front of an approaching car coming from the left. Here you need to look to the left of course.

Tip 4. An unusual custom

Something you may come across is if you are following a few cars on a main road, and you approach a turn off to the left, the cars in front may slow and all of them indicate left. This doesn’t necessarily mean that they are all turning left as it is the custom here to also indicate left, even if you are going straight on, to warn the driver/s behind not to overtake as someone is turning left in front. Once the car turning left does then the others behind cancel their indicators and continue.

I can at least see some sense in this.

One of the very few slightly scarier roads in Fuerteventura

A few driving laws to be aware of

Laws similar to the UK

Just like in the UK there are laws against:

  • using a mobile phone while driving
  • speeding
  • not wearing seatbelts
  • children in child seats etc. (Most car hire companies provide these free of charge)
fuerteventura driving tips

Of course, drink driving is also illegal (and in my opinion if you are driving you shouldn’t drink anything anyway) but you should be aware that the legal limit is lower here than in the UK. It is only 50 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood here whereas in the UK it is 80 milligrammes.

So if you are going to have a drink be aware that you can only drink half the amount you can in the UK before you are over the limit.

Don’t chance it. If you are driving stick to soft drinks or alcohol free beer (which is available in bars and restaurants everywhere here, unlike in the UK). Ask for a “cerveza sin alcohol.”

Laws particular to Fuerteventura (and Spain)

There are some specific laws to be aware of here. While some of these things might also be illegal in the UK, and covered within the “Driving without due care and attention/careless driving” offence, it would have to be proven that your driving fell below the expected driving level of a competent driver in doing so.

Here they are specific offences (absolute offences) so if you were doing any of them no proof is needed to show it adversely affected your driving. You were doing it, so you are guilty. Fines will be issued for any of them, starting at 100€ and going up steeply.

Driving with an arm out of window

If you like to drive with the window open (and who doesn’t here), make sure you don’t drive with your arm resting on the door in the open window. If you are seen that will be an instant fine.

Driving without a shirt

Driving a car without a shirt on ie. topless, will get you a fine too. Perhaps if you are a good looking young female doing it the police may just let you off with a warning (a very long warning)!

Driving in flip flops or barefoot

Flip flops are for the beach, not driving

While it seems like a great idea to just wear your flip flops for the whole of your stay, or to come off the beach in bare feet and just hop in the car to drive home, if the police stop you they will not be impressed and neither will your bank account.

Pumping fuel with the radio on

Yes, really! Apparently they believe that this may increase the likelihood of an explosion.

Carry spare glasses

If you have to wear glasses for driving then you are required to carry a spare pair with you, which you might be required to show.

Stop means stop

At a road junction with a stop sign (and it does say stop) you are expected to stop (and apply your handbrake I believe.) That applies even if you can see for a mile that there are no cars coming at all.

I have known a few people who have been fined for not stopping at a stop sign.

I must admit it is not a law I adhere to unless I have to for safety’s sake (or I see a police car). To quote one of my hero’s, Douglas Bader, “Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men.”


Hopefully I have allayed any fears you may have had about driving in Fuerteventura and you now feel ready to bite the bullet and book a car for your visit. You may find my article on advice for renting a car here helpful.

Popcorn Beach Fuerteventura

Popcorn Beach Fuerteventura
This is why it is called Popcorn Beach

Over the past few weeks Popcorn Beach in Fuerteventura has been featured in both the UK and US press. I have no idea why it should suddenly feature as it has been here forever but that’s the press for you.

Popcorn beach fuerteventura

Popcorn Beach is on the north shore of Fuerteventura between Majanicho and Corralejo. It is basically made up of broken pieces of white coral that look very much like popcorn – hence the name.

popcorn beach fuerteventura
Popcorn Beach Fuerteventura looking west

As Fuerteventura beaches go it is certainly not one of the best but if you are driving along the north shore then it is worth a look at.

I drove from Majanicho along a very bumpy track first of all staying right by the sea shore. I was in my trusty old 4×4 so I was ok but you would struggle to take this track in a normal car. You certainly wouldn’t want to take your own car on it, although, as we all know, hire cars can go anywhere!

There is a much easier maintained track you can take too so that is quite easy in a normal car.

There is a small cafe/bar at the beach but it was closed when I visited. I don’t know when, or if, it opens.

Popcorn Beach looking east towards Corralejo

How to get to Popcorn Beach

To get to Majanicho first go to Lajares and at the roundabout by the football ground take the turning along the side of the football ground – signposted Majanicho. Continue down there, past the entrance to the Origo Mare complex and then into the quaint picturesque fishing hamlet of Majanicho.

Turn right to go to Popcorn Beach (or left to go to El Cotillosee video) but definitely stop there for a little walk around as it is a lovely little place. See my video – Majanicho.

Popcorn Beach Fuerteventura Majanicho
Majanicho

Once out of the village keep to the best track (right-hand) for about 10 minutes or so until you come to the little cafe. Turn off and park right by the beach.

To drive from the Corralejo end, take the back road which goes to the port. Look out for the two wind turbines by the desalination plant. Take the track which goes from the rear of the bus station and passes near the wind turbines and just keep going until you come to the little cafe.

Best adult only hotels in Fuerteventura for couples

best hotels in fuerteventura for couples

Obviously there are many lovely hotels on the island but the best hotels in Fuerteventura for couples, in my opinion, are those that are exclusively for adults. After all, when you are having a romantic holiday together the last thing you want are someone else’s screaming kids spoiling your peace and quiet. Well I don’t anyway.

best hotels in fuerteventura for couples

You can choose a hotel in, or close to, a resort with places to eat, drink and experience some nightlife or you can go for one pretty much on its own, located on a lovely beach, where you can just relax and enjoy each other’s company. Most hotels will offer some form of entertainment in the evenings if you want it

In my opinion three resorts fall into the category of the best place to stay in fuerteventura for couples which are Corralejo, Costa Calma/Jandia and Caleta De Fuste.

These are my selection of the best hotels in Fuerteventura for couples. They are all adults ony, with one exception being the 5 star Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahai Real in Corralejo, which is absolutely beautiful so worth including even though it is not exclusively for adults.

Best resort in Fuerteventura for families

best place in fuerteventura for families

I am often asked through this website, and my Youtube channel, what is the best resort in Fuerteventura for families to stay in. The answer, of course, largely depends on things like how old the children are and what they like to do.

best place in fuerteventura for families
Which is the best resort in fuerteventura for families

If you have very young children then it doesn’t really matter too much where you stay as they will be happy pretty much anywhere. Older and teenage children are a little harder to please though, particularly these days. My brothers and I were happy with just a beach to play on (and in the cold UK too) but it seems that often isn’t enough for today’s kids.

Fuerteventura isn’t full of tourist attractions for kids that some other places are. For example, there is just one water park (in Corralejo) and a zoo (Oasis Park near Costa Calma) and that is it as far as larger tourist attractions.

This is what Fuerteventura family holidays are about

Fuerteventura family holidays are more about spending lots of quality time together getting back to basics rather than having everything laid on a plate for you.

Believe me, when your children have grown up, it won’t be the time you went to that huge theme park with them that you, and they, remember. It will be that lovely day you spent on the beach making sand castles and splashing about in the sea together that brings back the happy memories.

Caleta de Fuste

Caleta de Fuste is considered to be the best resort in fuerteventura for families by many, and with British families in particular. It is a purpose built tourist town that has grown from nothing over the last 30+ years.

Best resort in Fuerteventura for families

The beaches are all man-made but they are very child safe as the sea is always calm due to the shape of the bay and man-made reefs which protect the beaches.

Best resort in Fuerteventura for families

There are things for families to do besides the beaches and swimming pools. From the harbour you can take a catamaran trip or go on the glass bottomed submarine. Children can use the inflatable activity centre in the harbour – they will need to be able to swim though. Older children can learn to surf with one of the surf schools. Other activities include childrens’ play parks, mini golf, sporting activities and a little road train which can be a handy way of getting around the resort.

There are performing sea lions in the harbour area too but, for me, anything that forces intelligent creatures to perform stupid tricks to entertain tourists should not be allowed.

As far as where to stay in Caleta, you can either choose a hotel, holiday complex or a private villa/apartment. Many of the hotels are all-inclusive, which, although not great for the local economy, are a great idea for families in knowing what their holiday will cost in advance. They generally have kids clubs and entertainment.

If choosing to go self-catering, there are plenty of restaurants around that cater for children and also a selection of supermarkets. The only McDonald’s on the island is in Caleta.

Corralejo

Corralejo is the other popular family-friendly resort in Fuerteventura. Unlike Caleta de Fuste, Corralejo does have some life outside of tourism and Spanish people live here alongside expats and tourists.

best resort in Fuerteventura for families
The glass bottom boat from Corralejo

There are a number of things for families to do in Corralejo:

  • The Acua water park (not open during the winter months though)
  • mini golf
  • childrens’ playgrounds
  • amusement park
  • trampolines
  • tennis
  • a buggy trip (with an adult driver of course)
  • a glass bottom boat trip
  • a boat trip to Lobos Island
  • surf schools

You could even take a day trip to Lanzarote by ferry from the harbour (but why leave such a beautiful island?.

Of course, there are some great beaches. In the town there are some small, sandy beaches with calm water which are good for children to play on. Just outside the town are the fabulous dunes beaches. One of the great sights of Fuerteventura.

When choosing where to stay in Corralejo, you can choose between a hotel, a holiday complex or a private villa/apartment. Many of the hotels are all-inclusive, which, although not great for the local economy, are a great idea for families in knowing what their holiday will cost in advance. They do generally have kids clubs and entertainment.

I have selected some of the best beachfront villas to rent in Corralejo if that is what you want.

If you do choose to go self-catering, there are plenty of good restaurants throughout Corralejo that cater for children and also a good selection of supermarkets. There is a Burger King in the high street.

You may be interested to watch my videos about Corralejo and the beaches around Corralejo:


Costa Calma/Jandia

Costa Calma and Jandia are in the south of the island. Both are mainly served by large all-inclusive hotels, many of which are on the beautiful beach that stretches 20 miles.

Within the hotels you will find things for kids to do but not so much outside, apart from the lovely beach that stretches for miles and the Oasis Park zoo. This area of the island is popular with German tourists but caters for all nationalities.

El Cotillo

El Cotillo Beaches

While El Cotillo does have some fantastic child friendly beaches, with very safe swimming. The village itself doesn’t really have too much for children to do. It tends to be more popular with couples. Having said that there is an all-inclusive hotel which has a good pool and entertainment and is just a short walk to the family beaches.
