Scuba & Snorkeling
The clear waters of Fuerteventura’s beaches are ideal for snorkeling. The warm water temperatures make snorkeling a year-round activity, and what lies underwater is a fantasy world of exotic marine life, mystery and colour. Due to the island’s proximity to both the Mediterranean and the tropics, the sea life is a surprisingly diverse mix of temperate, pelagic and tropical species. Turtles, whales and dolphins are frequent visitors to the coasts, but snorkelers can spy smaller species.
Oasis Park Fuerteventura

Playa de Cofete
Cofete beach is not suitable for bathing. There's something mysterious in it. Deserted, solitary, lonely, and in the background you can see the 800 m high mountains of Jandia where the clouds get caught. The weather is always breezy and the waves are very high. The beach appears breathtakingly eerie but nevertheless beautiful! You shouldn't bathe here because of the high waves and the strong current. On the approx. 2-3 km long beach there are no tourists or locals. The beach is also absolutely unsuitable for children.
El Cotillo Beach & Lagoons
The El Cotillo Beaches provide probably the biggest variety of beaches anywhere on the island. They are possibly the best beaches in Fuerteventura. So there is definitely one of the El Cotillo beaches for everyone – whether you like quiet, busy, small or large. Fortunately you will not find row upon row of sunbeds, umbrellas, or any of the other tourist rubbish, found on some other beaches. Just wonderful, natural, unspoilt beaches with lovely sand and clear water.
In reality, Sotavento is made up of five beaches: La Barca, Risco del Paso, Mirador, Los Canarios and Malnombre. With endless walks next to its clear waters there is no need to wait for low tide. A sand barrier at 100 and 300 metres from the shore creates a lagoon three kilometres long, perfect for beginners to windsurfing or kitesurfing; of which there are many. Turn around and take in a wonderful scene of solitude, with thousands of metres of sand and ocean before you. A real treat.
Playa de Sotavento
"Playa de Sotavento", which is 5 km long, is situated on the southern east coast of Fuerteventura. Every year, windsurfing and kite boarding world championships take place here. Playa de Sotavento is ideal for both surfing and kite boarding beginners and masters. The beach is too windy for relaxed bathing but you can lie down in the protected small dunes that are covered with vegetation. You can also do naturism and the beach is suitable for children since the water is very shallow.
Parque Natural de Corralejo
Corralejo Natural Park lies in the northern part of the island and is made up of a large area of dunes, a solidified lava stream, and the Montaña Roja (Red Mountain) volcanic cone.

Located in the peninsula of Jandia , the El Matorral beach in Morro Jable is a long white sand beach, bordered by a salt marsh of Jandía, an unique coastal ecosystem that is regularly flooded by the tides. Its soil is made of clay slimes and thin sands compacted by the tidal flooding of the sea and colonized by salt-tolerant vegetation and plants able of enduring period of hours of being submerged.
