Playa de Gran Tarajal
The centrally placed, golden-brown, sandy beach of Fuerteventura’s second biggest town stretches for about 600 metres and offers fine sand, a gleaming golden-brown in colour, and good swimming conditions. The nice white and colourful houses of the town round off the picturesque setting. Several cosy restaurants, bars and cafes can be found at the promenade.
