Sotavento Beach, Costa Calma

(4.7/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Steady winds attract kite surfers and windsurfers to the wide stretch of golden sand at Sotavento Beach. The winds blow strongly enough to deter many beachgoers looking for a relaxing afternoon though small dunes covered in vegetation do provide shelter. The 5-km (3.1-mi) beach has two sections, Playa Risco del Paso and Playa Barca, though there is no major difference between them. Nudists do frequent these beaches, mostly to the far ends of the sand. By using our Costa Calma travel itinerary maker, you can arrange your visit to Sotavento Beach and other attractions in Costa Calma.

  • a true paradise for those who love the sea, white sand beach with a lagoon before the sea and which is the realm of windsurfing, kite surfing and wind lovers

  • This beach goes on forever, from Costa Calma to Morro Jable You can always find a quiet spot. Most of it is completely unspoilt with few beach umbrellas and a lovely beach bar at Tierra Dorada.  more »
  • For us, one of the nicest beaches in the South of the island where all water sports can be practiced for all ages. Down the sand dunes, create you a lava stone enclosure to house you wind, climb the slopes of the hills around or follow the secos Ríos. This beach has kept a more intimate character. The top of the beaches in the South.
