#Fuerteventura is known worldwide for being one of the Islands with the most beautiful beaches in the world. Long areas of very fine, white, golden sand full of light and with the Atlantic surrounding its shores and cliffs. All without exception are havens of peace and relaxation where anyone would like to get lost at least once a year, but there is one of all of them that stands out in indisputable way: #Cofete beach.
Located in the Natural Park of Jandía, in the municipality of Pájara, this pristine beach is surrounded by high mountains and breaches the sea, as if it were a result of an architecture designed with detail. Pure nature which only can be accessed by sea or through a path that crosses the hills of this southern part of Fuerteventura towards the Atlantic.
Its difficult access is what makes it one of the most isolated and quiet beaches to rest during a #holiday in Fuerteventura. It is especially suitable for travellers who love sport, adventures, relaxation as a couple and all those seeking to discover always new places.
Swimming is not easy in this beach, hence it is not of the most recommended to go with children, since when the tide is high, it leaves a part of the beach isolated and, in addition, the winds in the area form strong eddies that create a swell that makes it difficult to enjoy a quiet dip unless you are a good swimmer.
To visit the area of Cofete beach, the most recommended is to book accommodation in Costa Calma, or opt for a hotel in Playa de Jandia. There are several 4-star hotels in Jandia that combine services for adults and children, also hotels for couples next to the Matorral beach, one of the most famous in this area.
The capital of Fuerteventura, Puerto del Rosario, celebrates these days the Saint Patron’s festivities, which conclude the season term and welcome an autumn full of new and interesting projects.
