Playa de Morro Jable - Wide sandy beach with fun, sun and sea for young and old
Situated in the south of Fuerteventura, Playa de Morro Jable, also known as Playa Jandia, is the large beach of Morro Jable. The lighthouse marks the approximate centre of the beach, which is split into the northern half known as El Saladar and the southern half of Playa del Matorral.
The bright sandy beach area stretches for approximately three kilometres. The water is clear and very clean. In both areas there are windsurfing and sailing schools offering courses and equipment for hire. Near the lighthouse is a well-known surfing location, where the wave known as “Cruz Roja” occurs in certain wind conditions, making for a very special surfing experience.
Small beach bars can be found all along Playa de Morro Jable, so that there is within easy reach always the possibility of refuelling with refreshments. Near the lighthouse is also a fairly large nudist swimming area.
Near Playa de Morro Jable is a protected lagoon area and behind that the main road of Morro Jable, thankfully far enough away for the traffic noise not to be heard. Parallel to the road a promenade leads to the old centre of the town. From the promenade you can enjoy a fantastic view over the whole beach area, as well as having access to the beach via several pathways.
