Fuerteventura Sur – Playa de Sotavento

A trip to Fuerteventura – October 2016

BEACHES IN THE SOUTH:

Sotavento Beach

Sotavento beach is located 15km north of Jandia, and it takes about 15 minutes to get there.  Be sure to get there on a day/time you can watch the tide rising or ebbing.

Next to the “classic” area, you can walk south-west and find a very nice scenery: dunes, rocks  and cliffs.

Be aware that this is a very windy beach:

A lot of nudist, moreover int the south-west.

Costa Calma beach

A few kilometers north of Sotavento, you can find the town of Costa Calma. It is a nice place to visit, with a botanical garden, restaurants, and a simple but cozy beach. Here the wind is not as strong as in Sotavento. No naturist/nudist here.
