Fuerteventura is one of the best places to surf. Both the experts and lovers of this sport and the novices find their place on the island to face the best waves. As we know, Fuerteventura is surrounded by water on all four sides and that’s why we discovered the best beaches on the island to surf.
The North zone of Fuerteventura is indicated for the experts in surfing, that is to say, those people who practice it often and have a high knowledge. Among the best beaches or spots in which to practice this sport include:
The waves on these beaches reach a great height when breaking against the reefs. The northern area is suitable for surfing experts because the wind blows very hard and currents can make it difficult to practice sports. Although in Corralejo, Majanicho and Isla de lobos the experts enjoy the waves, the beginners can also find their ideal spots on these beaches, always acting with caution.
On the contrary, the East zone is ideal for those who want to start in this sport. Playa Blanca is one of the spots chosen for the first classes. The area is full of surf schools, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.
If we move towards the Northwest area, bordering the Natural Park of Corralejo, we find the Playa del Moro, another favorite area for surf schools to start their students in this fantastic sport.
The ona Oeste de Fuerteventura stands out for its high waves, which is why it is one of the points chosen by surf experts. Beginners can also practice on these beaches but it is not recommended due to the strong wind and waves.
Playa de Garcey, El Cotillo or Playa del Águila are the surf spots most popular and preferred by surfers to ride the waves and carry out their tricks and acrobatics. The practice should be done with caution since in these beaches there is enough current and rocks.
The southern part of the island is the most tourist, so the surf camps are very recurrent in this area. Due to the wind, the southern beaches are filled with kites and sails by those who practice kitesurfing and windsurfing. In addition, the Windsurf and Kitesurf World Championship is held in Playa de la Barca. However, surfing also finds its place in Punta del Tigre and Playa de Cofete. These are two of the spots most frequented by surfers and in which you have to be careful because of its high waves.
Any point of Fuerteventura is ideal for surfing. Although there are spots for experts, any practitioner can enter them, as long as sports are carried out with caution and checking the conditions of the sea.
