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.
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.
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.
