Amazing lagoons here and you can be sure that the sea is always calm because of that. The place itself is very windy but is not annoying, is also a perfect place for topless if you are interested into that.

The Lagoons are absolutely beautiful and picturesque. The swimming is safe and the water is very clear for snorkelling, you don’t see a lot of different fish but it’s still a relaxing past time. The beach has rocks built up as sort of wind breakers/...More

l think it is best option if you want to swim in Fuerteventura. Other beaches are very windy and impossible to swim.

Response from lionmike | Reviewed this property |
The car park at the back of the beach is hard (although with a fine layer of sand). So I don’t think you’d have a problem there. There is a short wooden walkway, from the car park part way into the beach - but not very far... More
