Jandia, Fuerteventura, Canaries
The peninsula Jandía is located on the southern tip of the Canary Island Fuerteventura, it is a true natural paradise. The main town, Morro Jable, is a hive of activity with a busy harbour and shop and restaurant-packed centre, plus a never-ending sandy beach that runs from Morro Jable to Costa Calma and is about 21 km long.
Surfers and windsurfers will love this beach. Located close to the harbour at Morro Jable is the Morro Jable lighthouse, which is one of the few examples of ancient architectural buildings you will find on Fuerteventura. Morro Jable is one of the island’s favourite resorts, and it’s hard to imagine that in the not too distant past, this town was just a tiny fishing village. It has managed well to retain its old charm and mixes well the new resort with the old fishing village.
Here you will find a good mix of traditional Canarian and international cuisines. For those that prefer activities on or under the water, there are a number of dive schools in the area along with sailboat hire, Jetski and Quadbike excursions. There’s also some decent snorkelling. With 47,695 hectares of Protected Natural Areas and over 255 kilometres of marked hiking trails, there are plenty of great walks including the hike up to Pico de la Zarza. This is the highest point in Fuerteventura at 807 metres.
Like all over Fuerteventura, the climate in Jandía is extremely mild all year round and the weather is very dry. The region incorporates the resorts of Costa Calma, Playas de Jandia and the charming village of Morro Jable, which are all close to Jandia Playa.
Transfer from Fuerteventura airport approx. 1 hour 15 mins.
