Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Playa de las Caletillas is near the airport of Fuerteventura. The beach and the surrounding area are unfortunately not very appealing and algae and dumped rubbish are to be found both on the sand and in the sea. A project to improve the beach through planting is supposed to take place, but even then the noise from the airport will still be heard. In our opinion a visit to Playa de las Caletillas is not worth the effort.

Playa de las Caletillas - Beach near the airport, unfortunately dirty and too noisy

Las Caletillas beach is situated on the east coast of Fuerteventura within sight of the airport. The journey by car from Caleta de Fuste takes about 20 minutes. A gravel path leads from the main road to the beach. Las Caletillas is a beige-coloured sandy beach covered with pebbles and at each end there are piles of rocks and sand. Unfortunately though, there is algae at the water's edge together with scattered rubbish.

Signs at the beach provide details of a government project to improve the beach, but sadly there was no evidence of this during our visit. The area itself is not very appealing and as the beach is next to the airport, the noise of the air traffic can be clearly heard.We think Playa de las Caletillas is not worth visiting at the moment. Even if the appearance of the beach is improved at some point in the future, the noise from the airport will still be irritating.
