Fuerteventura is famous for its beaches and as mentioned before in all there are approx 152. Apart from those that are directly accessible by foot from your hotel you will find that most are deserted from people and devoid of the usual rows of deckchairs and umbrellas. On these beaches you have the pleasure of choosing your own secluded spot and that it will remain yours for as long as you are there.
Chilling out on Fuerteventura’s beaches is a marvellous experience, but if you may feel the need to visit some nice spots in nature, then the suggestions below can help you in making a selection.
Corralejo – Natural Park “Dunas de Corralejo”: majestic dunes of fine white sand at the south of Corralejo and that are adjacent to the east coast. Preferred time of visiting is early in the morning (sun rise), later in the afternoon when it is cooler or in the evening at sunset.
