Picture in your mind a white sandy beach, uncluttered and unspoilt which stretches infinitely along a shoreline of turquoise blue ocean, against a scenic backdrop of mountains. No, this is not a fantasy island, it is the resort of Jandia. Located on the southwest peninsula of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, this little known gem boasts some of the best beaches in the world and is the perfect destination for those looking to relax.
Away from the high rise buildings of Northern Fuerteventura, set against the Pico de la Zarza Mountains in the arid south, Jandia’s main beach snakes along the coast for a whopping 32 kilometres (That’s 20 miles!) An unspoiled haven which has yielded itself gently to the tourist trade, small beach bars and cafes dot the seafront between lush lagoons and towering sand dunes.
At one end of the beach, you will find the stunning resort of Morro Jable. What was once a sleepy fishing village has expanded to become an exclusive tourist hot spot, boasting a variety of superb restaurants and bars around its quaint harbour, where you will find the freshest seafood in Jandia.
At the other end of the beach lies Costa Calma. Home to the stunning Playa Barca beach, a favourite spot for wind and kite surfers because of the gentle trade winds which blow across the Canaries from Africa. Jandia is a serious beach lovers’ paradise. With vast amounts of space and not a sun lounger in sight, roll out your towel, dig your toes in the warm sand and soak up the Canarian sunshine on the ‘Island of Eternal Spring.’
