In the north of Fuerteventura we find some of the most charming fishing villages on the island. The turquoise waters with the contrast of the dark rocks and white sand create a landscape difficult to find anywhere else. The north of Fuerteventura stands out for its landscapes, its charm and its beaches. Today, we show you the best beaches in the north of the majorera island.
Puertito de los Molinos Beach
In the western area of Puerto del Rosario we find the beach Puertito de los Molinos. In spite of being located in the municipality of the capital, it is a little crowded beach. The waves are strong so caution in the bathroom is essential. This makes Puertito de los Molinos beach one of the places chosen by Fuerteventura surfers.
Visitors arriving at the place enjoy the cliffs overlooking the beach, its wild nature and the typical houses of ancient fishermen.
Big Beaches of Corralejo
The Great Beaches of Corralejo are probably the most known image of Fuerteventura. We have already spoken on more than one occasion about the beaches of the island majorera, but it is difficult not to do so when we talk about the best beaches in the north of Fuerteventura.
8 kilometres of coastline occupies the Parque Natural de las Dunas de Corralejo. A wide space in which you will find several beaches of different types and for all tastes. Its crystalline waters between turquoise and emerald green tones, have positioned Corralejo as one of the villages of Fuerteventura with the best beaches.
For those looking for a quiet day without wind, you can visit the Playa del Moro. For those who want to enjoy solitude and relaxation, the ideal place is Playa del Burro. If you prefer to connect with the wildest nature and practice nudism, the best thing is to go to the small coves or corralitos that are a few meters from the Playa del Bajo Negro, next to the Hotel Riu.
Los Lagos Beach
Another reference point in Fuerteventura is El Cotillo. The beaches in this area are wilder and more unspoilt. An example of this is Los Lagos beach, a succession of natural beaches protected from the waves by reefs. Los Lagos is perfect for families with small children, who will be able to bathe without any danger, since there are no waves and the water level is very low. There are no beach facilities in the immediate vicinity, so plan everything you need for the day before leaving home.
La Concha Beach
Also, in El Cotillo is Playa La Concha, another of the most famous and crowded of Fuerteventura. The fine white sand and crystal clear water with little swell got the beach the Blue Flag award in the 2010-2011 season. It joins Los Lagos at one end. Although it is one of the best known beaches on the island, it is 200 meters long. The site is secure! The little ones of the house will enjoy trying to chase and discover the marine fauna of Fuerteventura.
La Caleta Beach
It’s time to catch the ferry and set course for Lobos Island. There we’ll find La Caleta Beach, the only beach on the islet. Lobos Island is divided in two parts with a rocky line and is the ideal place to rest after touring and discovering the secrets that Isla de Lobos hides. The lime kilns, the salt flats in which the sea water was desalinated, for the subsequent salting of the fish. We can also witness the remains of the first inhabitants of Isla de Lobos.
Reserve a few days to visit all the beaches in the north of Fuerteventura. An area that leaves no one indifferent and that will be difficult to see anywhere else. You can stay in El Cotillo where besides visiting its wonderful beaches, you will know first hand the life of the old fishing village.
