My wife and I had great holiday on Fuerteventura two years ago. We visited numerous beaches on the island from Jandia, Punto Rosario, Playa de Sotavento to Costa Calma.

Punto del Rosario, near the south point of the island had black sand and there were some volcanic rocks to negotiate but again the water was warm and being on the south side of Fuerteventura the sand was backing hot and no wind. It was just a matter of tanning and cooling in the sea, lovely. There were no other people around as there are so many Fuerteventura beaches.

Jandia beach was the busiest as there are lots of hotels nearby. By far the most visitors here are Germans which is also “the language” when you go shopping. There were hundreds of people in the nude so nobody pays any attention to anyone there.

Sotavento beach is very long with small dunes and stone shelters made by people year after year. The wind was a bit strong but we had a small half-moon shelter which was very welcome. Again many people, even in November, but again very enjoyable and warm. Loads of young children are also playing on the beach and in the sea with their parents, with absolutely no hinder about anyones nakedness.

But the very best by far is the near empty beach just east of the El Cotillo lighthouse of (north-east) of the island. Enormous waves in the sea, but the lagoon was calm and the sand was warm and was empty, apart from ourselves and some couples in every small lagoon. We had our own private beach which we enjoyed very much. We stayed on the beach till about sundown before returning 50 miles back to our hotel in Costa Calma.

Costa Calma Beaches
Just south of the long main beach in Costa Calma, near the last 3 big hotels, are 2 good beaches well in reach of about 25 hotels. They are frequented by both textiles and naturists and whilst we were using the beach for 3 days it does not seem to create any problems. It’s mostly German speaking people again but also visitors from the UK and from France. From the end of those beaches until the Sotavento beach are a number of coves mostly visited by naturists. I personally think that people visiting Fuerteventura know how much the beaches are used by naturists. Wish we could find one in Scotland !!
