Summary of the Beach Inspectors
El Marajo is a small, remote bay in northern Fuerteventura, away from the hustle and bustle of the larger more well-known beaches. Areas of light sand and others of dark rock create a really beautiful landscape. Lava formations stretch out into the sea and help to keep the currents and waves at moderate levels. If you can do without amenities, restaurants and bars, you will find El Marajo a fabulous and idyllic retreat.

El Marajo - Quiet bay with light sand and dark rocks

The small bay of El Marajo is situated about 5 minutes by car from Caleta de Marrajo. The bay is not easy to see from the road and it is easy to miss this hidden, peaceful oasis. The surrounding dunes provide a feeling of remoteness and calm. The beach has large light sandy areas, as well as areas covered by dark rocks. These black lava formations offer wind protection and privacy and stretch right out into the water. Swimming with or without swimwear is very enjoyable because of the gentle waves. The lighthouse which can be seen on the horizon is a landmark of northern Fuerteventura. El Marajo is ideal for an enjoyable, peaceful and relaxed day at the beach with just the noise of the gentle waves to be heard.
