Fuerteventura has many paths to explore the island on foot. Each of these routes will take you to discover surprising and new places of the desert island. Infinite cliffs, hidden beaches, volcanoes … Today we show you the best routes to explore Fuerteventura on foot.
Cliffs of Tindaya
In the town of Tindaya there are several routes that end in cliffs. In the north you will find the cliff of Los Caletones. While in the south you can enjoy one of the best beaches in Fuerteventura, Tebeto Beach. This paradisiacal beach of which we have spoken, is unknown by tourists and only go to it the inhabitants of Tindaya and islanders. To access it, you must carefully descend the cliff, since there is no road built.
However, the effort is worth it. The days of much swell should be careful in the bath, we recommend that you do not go into the sea since there is no coverage and the accesses to the beach are very bad. Sit on your towel, contemplate the landscape and feel the peace of the waves. It will be one of the best moments you have ever experienced.
Ermita del Tanquito and Montaña Cardón
In the town of El Cardón take the road FV-605 and exit the town. You must go through abandoned greenhouses and near them you will find a car park where you can leave the car and where the path begins.
The first part of the route is very simple and it will not cost you work. It ends at the Ermita del Tanquito where you can gather strength in a resting area and visit the sanctuary. Here every year a pilgrimage is celebrated in honor of the Virgen del Tanquito.
We leave behind the Ermita del Tanquito and we begin to climb Montaña Cardón, with a steep slope. When we reach the top we will enjoy some privileged views of Jandía and Las Hermosas.
La Escalerita beach
We left Lajares by the FV-10 direction El Cotillo. At about 200 meters we find the signs that indicate the beginning of the Barranco del Jable trail. We follow this path of white sand about 4.5 km to turn right towards the mountains. At the highest point of the route we come across a small house from where El Cotillo is seen and where we can also stop along the way and rest to continue towards our destination.
We will go down a path that leads to the village but we will turn off towards the sea to reach the Águila Beach or La Escalerita Beach, where our hiking day ends.
These are just some routes that you can not miss when you visit Fuerteventura. The island is great to walk only on foot, but go to your destination of the day, park the car and start walking. In this way you will enjoy much more of your trip, of nature and also contribute to responsible tourism.
