Located less than 100 km from the northwest coast of Africa, there is a certain African atmosphere in its lands. People live at a very calm pace and in harmony with the beautiful nature that they are lucky enough to be able to enjoy. The beaches of Fuerteventura are its most important tourist asset, but not the only one. Often swept by a wind that delights the lovers of water sports with a board, it is the headquarters of the windsurfing world championships.
The best beaches in the south of Fuerteventura
Some of the paradisiacal beaches of Fuerteventura are located on the Jandía Peninsula on the southwest corner of the island. We were a bit confused by the fact that with the name of the beaches of Jandía they refer to the beaches that are on the east coast of this peninsula and not to a specific beach. What these beaches have in common are the fine white-gold sand and crystalline waters of a color that seems to have come from a dream.
The island has a wide variety of landscapes with colorful mountains, extinct volcanoes, sand dunes, steep cliffs and of course beaches. It is not for nothing that UNESCO declared it a Biosphere Reserve. The best way to enjoy these landscapes is through the fantastic viewpoints found on the island. In this post we show you the 10 best and most impressive viewpoints in Fuerteventura.

Fuerteventura is known for its impressive and paradisiacal beaches, for its dunes or for its picturesque towns. But we can also visit it through its lighthouses, another of its great attractions. Fascinating viewpoints, some of which have now become interesting museums, the lighthouses and their sparkles hide innumerable stories of sailors and navigators from ancient times. Today we visit, from north to south, some of the best known on the island. From Punta de Jandía to the neighboring Islote de Lobos, the island of the wind not only boasts paradisiacal beaches, perfect waves and unique sea beds, the lighthouses are another of its great attractions.
