Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Roque del Moro is enchanting and adventurous at the same time. There are several rock formations in various shades and colours. Roque de Moro, which gave its name to the beach, protrudes majestically from the water. The beach is well worth a visit. Roque del Moro is a place which combines absolute peace and quiet with unspoiled nature. Swimming and bathing is not recommended because of the strong currents, but it is the perfect place for lovers of nature.

Roque del Moro - Surreal, wild beach scenery, strong currents

The Roque del Moro beach is situated in the south of Fuerteventura, directly below the long Cofete beach. It takes about an hour from Morro Jable on gravel and winding roads and for this reason an off-road vehicle would be of advantage. A sign shows the way to the remote beach. The stunning scenery here will cast a spell on you right from the start.

The meandering roads together with the local rocks and bushes conceal this spectacular beach which has been completely left to wild nature's power. The remoteness is underlined by the unique sandstone rock and stone formations in different colours and shades producing the enchanting picturesque scenery which no painter could paint so beautifully. At the southern end of Roque del Moro a gigantic rock, often pictured on postcards, protrudes proudly from the water to round off the scene. It is this rock which gives the beach its name of Roque del Moro.

In a large hollowed-out rock pool you can enjoy peace and quiet away from the neighbouring and busier Cofete beach. However, the currents here are just as strong and the waves just as high and it is important to weigh this up carefully before deciding to swim here. Sometimes surfers will find their way to Roque del Moro, but it is essential to be an experienced, if not a professional surfer before risking the turbulent waves here.
