Have you ever been to Jandía beach? Then you can not say you’ve been to Fuerteventura. This area at the southern end of the island hides the most spectacular sandy beaches and the most comfortable and quiet corners to travel in spring with children at a really affordable price.
Playa de Jandía is the southernmost south of Fuerteventura and, therefore, the best time to enjoy it is in the spring: Just before the summer sun really heats up. The area of the municipality of Pájara (to which Jandía belongs) is very green and invites you for long walks along its mountain trails or at the edge of the sea. It is perfect for sports and adventure but above all it is a good destination to spend a week of relaxation in nature with the small ones.
In addition to the really affordable price, hotels in this southern area of Fuerteventura are among the most complete that can be found on the island. Many of them are specialised for couples with young children and, therefore, not only have high quality children’s services but also entertainment areas reserved for the elderly to enjoy when the little ones play in the mini club or are with the babysitter.
Some of the most celebrated are in the zone closest to the residential area of Fuerteventura Garden, in Costa Calma, with the establishments H10 in the mind. Esquinzo, where the Robinson Beach Club and PiedrasCaídas stand out, you can find the special hotels for couples with children: Iberostar Fuerteventura Palace, Iberostar Playa Gaviotas and Iberostar Playa Gaviotas Park.
The beaches of southern Fuerteventura are quieter and its waters calmer than those of the north, more conducive to windsurfing.
The beaches of Costa Calma, the beaches of Gaviotas or the famous beach of Matorral that are in full process of environmental regeneration are symbols of the natural more traditional beauty of Fuerteventura.
In contrast to the north, where the windsurfers of the world come for the big waves to dance the ancestral dance of skies and oceans, the south is pure peace, happiness wrapped in cotton, absolute relaxation, good typical gastronomy and the artisan lifestyle.
There you can seek the balance of body and mind, lie in the sun with the sole purpose of picking up a tan and reading a book, have a few beers accompanied by some crisps, dine on the shores of the Atlantic and walk the paths that will take you to the Volcanic remains that emerged from this magical island.
In Jandia you can still find some beaches in which to practice naturism and, if you wake up in time, you will be able to have the wonderful experience of taking a bath in the crystalline waters of the Atlantic in the perfect solitude of the dawn.
To get to Jandia from Fuerteventura airport, which is in Puerto del Rosario, is just over an hour by car (about 80 km) and along that route you can make different stops to get to know places as interesting as The beaches of Gran Tarajal, the natural area of Malpaís Grande and Cuchillos de Vigán … Other points that you should not miss are Corralejo and its symbolic dunes and Betancuria with its inland villages, where you can find the most authentic gastronomy on the island.
