Cofete
Cofete is an impressive beach which definitely has to be visited if you are staying in southern Fuerteventura. The scenery is simply breathtaking. The long natural beach with the mighty mountain range as a backdrop sets a majestic scene, which is unique not just for Fuerteventura but in the whole of Europe.However, those looking for a relaxing swim will be disappointed. Due to the strong currents Cofete is not suitable for paddling and casual swimming. However, long walks along the fabulous beach accompanied by sound of crashing waves more than make up for this.

Cofete - King of the Beaches

The Cofete (also known as Barlovento) beach is a majestic 11km long sandy beach situated in the Cofete National Park. This can be found on the south-western coast of Fuerteventura.

The journey from Morro Jable takes about 90 minutes on a well-signposted meandering dirt-road. An off-road vehicle is therefore advantageous, but not essential. The route to Cofete is worth the visit in itself. This adventure leads you through a bizarre landscape, around numerous bends and past a breathtaking observation point, where you are treated to a spectacular view of the longest beach on the island.

The spacious beach is surrounded by the mighty Jandia mountain range. The fine beige sand extends across the whole beach. Taking a long walk is recommended to be able to fully soak up the stunning scenery of nature pure.

The crashing of the monstrous waves makes a day in Cofete unforgettable. When swimming or bathing however, the power of these waves should never be underestimated. Swimming here is therefore not suitable for children. In spite of warnings there are fatalities every year due to people underestimating the power of the currents and the waves at Cofete and therefore extreme care is needed!

A restaurant in the small village next to the beach offers local delicacies for those looking to refuel after time at the beach. It pays to invest the time is needed to really get to know Cofete, a truly impressive beach.
