Caleta Beatriz
The natural build-up of algae and sea-weed at certain times makes this beach not very enjoyable to stay at. It is a pity really, as this small, remote, sandy bay would otherwise be perfect to spend a relaxed day at the beach away from the main holiday resorts. However, there are plenty of other options for quiet, sheltered bays on the north coast of Fuerteventura.

Caleta Beatriz - Sheltered, wild, natural bay, unfortunately with a lot of algae and seaweed

Halfway between El Cotillo and Corralejo on the north coast of Fuerteventura, Caleta de Beatriz is a rather remote, completely wild and sandy bay almost entirely cut off by the sea.

There are hardly any waves here because of the offshore ragged rocks and because the beach which is located far inland. The water is extremely shallow and in principle ideal for relaxed swimming. However, the water only flows slowly back into the sea because of the rocks which form a natural barrier and the non-existent current. This has lead to a massive natural build-up of algae and seaweed washed in from the sea and in parts you have to walk on very slippery and boggy underground for several metres to reach the water. To make things worse the smell of the washed-up algae can also be very unpleasant. For these reasons we cannot really recommend Caleta Beatriz.
