Aparthotel Bahia Grande

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights whilst staying in Fuert. I had watched this hotel being built in previous years and was curious as to the finished product. The check in was friendly and welcoming. We were given pool towels to use and a welcoming drink. The room was brand new as was everything else in the hotel. It is an ultra modern hotel but i would say lacks a bit of something. The room consisted of a kitchen that was new and well equipped. The strange thing though was there were no curtains in the kitchen/sitting area. This is a bit weird as the sun blinded you in the morning and you wanted to walk around in your PJ’s. The rooms whilst new were not luxurious a bit ikea type. The hotel had a childrens club which was excellent quality and our 6 year old was very happy and welcomed. The swimming pool is large but very concrete ie no grassed areas. We ate half board as there is not a good choice of restaurants nearby as its deserted. After dinner we thought we would go for a relaxing drink. Well there were lots of scandinavian and german guests and they go to bed early. At 10pm it was like a ghost hotel. We walked over to the other side of the bay to its sister hotel. Cala Hotel. We went to a lovely outside bar that had a shelter and overlooked the ocean. It was nice and not too pricey. However, by about 11pm this became quiet. We gave up and went to bed. The beach area is black sand and very quiet. There are no sunbeds on the beach and the only action is the windsurfing that happens on a daily basis. Would i stay here again only if it was a very good price and i was looking for total isolation.

Some of the best-known nudist beaches

Those who enjoy the glory of worshipping the sun in the altogether couldn’t ask for a more accommodating spot than Fuerteventura. While there is no official position on nude sunbathing, there are many beaches where nudist sun lovers are welcome to strip down to the bare essentials and enjoy. There are very few beaches where nudism will raise eyebrows, though there are a few where it is not allowed or is discouraged. These are generally well-populated beaches near the urban and resort centres – Corralejo, for example. Even around Corralejo, though, there are beaches where a nudist can enjoy a discreet all-over tanning session.

Some of the best-known nudist beaches are on the southern end of Fuerteventura. The sunny, windy coasts of the Jandia peninsula offer many fairly remote and less populous beaches where no one thinks twice if a bather strips to their altogether.

Cofete is a pristine stretch of about 13 km on the western side of Jandia. Cofete is separated from Barlovento Beach by a rock known as Islote, and when the tide comes in, the beach is cut off from the rest of the island. Just beside Islote, the tides and winds have formed a small cove which offers the best bathing on the long stretch of sand. The windy beach with fine gold sand is one of the island’s better known nudist beaches.

Playa Sotovento is another Jandia beach where nudists are welcomed. The beach is actually divided in three by a pair of parallel sand dunes which run down to the sea. Most naturists prefer the large, flat expanse of sandy beach that lies to the south of the second dune. The beach is accessible by guagua (bus), and features many nearby resort amenities, including restaurants, a board walk, First Aid station, litter bins, sunshades and hammocks.

El Bajo Negro is located within Las Dunas de Corralejo Natural Park, not far from Corralejo. The beach is located in a rural area, and the beach is only semi-developed. There are many remote, pristine areas where nudist bathing is accepted and welcome. Despite its name, the sands here are pale and golden, and there are many accommodations for tourists and holidaymakers. Accessible by bus, it offers baths, showers, first aid, accommodations and nearby restaurants.

It’s far more common to find nudist beaches along either the northern coast or the southern peninsula, but nude bathing is acceptable on nearly any remote stretch of beach that is not overly populated or marked as family-friendly.

Fuerteventura beaches / information.

Without doubt fuerteventura has the best Beaches in the Canary Islands region,if not Europe.
The Beaches on Fuerteventura are vast and numerous,with around 150 in total
This makes Fuerteventura the No 1 destination for the beach lover.
Below is more information on some of the many beaches of Fuerteventura
There’s approximately 120 miles of natural beach on the island of Fuerteventura.
Be fore warned nudism is accepted in Fuerteventura and many of the more rural beaches are nudist, but most are far from the family tourist areas on the island.

Costa Calma:

This beach is part of the Playa de Sotavento. It is a long wide beach with a narrow band of wasteland between the beach and the rise where the buildings form. This area is most popular with naturists. The sea is pleasant for swimming here and there are toilets dotted along the beach.

Costa caleta beach / Caleta de fuste :

The purpose built resort of Caleta de fuste or costa caleta as it is also known is based around a large horseshoe shaped cove. The natural features of this cove lean to a gentle slope into the sea, where it is protected from waves, and no dangerous currents (ideal for young children).
The beach has been created from imported sand from the Sahara desert, there are a few smaller bathing areas as you walk along the pathway following the beach .
These lagoon like areas have been created by digging into the rock behind the shoreline and then importing the sand, these new beaches can befound by the new Atlantico center. As Caleta is a family resort, only topless bathing is seen in this area.

Puerto Del Rosario, Playa blanca:

Playa Blanca beach is a short walk from the Capital of Puerto del Roasario. The white sand here stretches for about 600 metres . Under currents can be strong and during peak season a flag system to show when it is safe to bathe are present. This area of beach is mainly used by the local people during lunch breaks and when they fancy an hour at the beach just to relax. The local Spanish are not as keen on topless bathing as the Germans and English as a result nudism is pretty rare here.

El Cotillo Beach:

The white sandy beach here stretches for miles to the south of El Cotillo. El cotillo is on the west coast of the island where the waves tend to be much larger than over areas of the island. The sheer size of the beach means that even on a busy day it is possible that you could be the only person visible for some distance.
El cotillo beach is massive and there is ample space for nudism activity here.

Morro Jable:

This beach has the usual water sports activities going on and it is possible to go sailing,diving,snokelling etc. The beach at the Jandia end is divided into a nudist section to the left of the lighthouse, a clothed section is to the right.
There are numerous sunbeds available on both sections and the sea is pleasant for swimming,although a steep slope towards the sea is present in places which is not suitable for very young children.


The beach at Cofete is a white sandy beach that is about 3 miles in length. Cofete beach is not easily accessible so there is plenty of room to get away from the tourists. The waves here can be a bit on the rough side and would recommend taking great care if bathing.
