Playa de Cofete, Morro del Jable

4.8
#1 of 202 in Outdoors in Fuerteventura
Playa de Cofete rewards you with fine golden sand, plenty of open space, and a mountainous backdrop, if you brave the somewhat difficult journey to the southern tip of Fuerteventura. Follow the dirt track to reach the 12 km (7.5 mi) beach, and make sure you bring everything you need for the day because this remains a totally natural place. The town of Cofete has a few facilities, but it remains largely empty outside of summer weekends. Beware of strong currents while swimming. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Morro del Jable holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Playa de Cofete and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • If you like Cofete Beach by the track, be careful and gentle on the accelerator. The track is bounded upstream by the mountain and downstream, by... The vacuum! Before coming to the beach itself, you go through the café restaurant of Cofete. guided by the aromas that your nostrils will not fail to capture. Local cuisine, grilled, fish, meat and goat cheese... A delight... As for the beach, it is immense, wide, deep with dunes for shelter in case of too strong wind. And if you summers sports, you can leave the car at the same track because the track is without end and walk across the mountain back. There is a 6.7 km track which you take the other side of the island. It takes 2 h 40 unhurried too. It is even without being trained athlete and without special skills. Avoid flip-flops; A good pair of sneakers will suffice. The same day, you can swim at the same time on the West Coast, and on the East Coast... Not're pouting your pleasure.

  • Fortunately there are places like this where you realize how small you are and how time and space are all human conjectures. About 45 minutes of unpaved road easily passable with any car, during which time will the opportunity to remain amazed by the beauty of the arid landscape and wild. And once you get ... no pictures can never do justice to the extraordinary nature of the landscape. Walk and enjoy it, you'll be alone with nature.

  • This is a beach which worth the trip. A vast beach windy and lost at the end of a track 10 kilometres. The greatness and beauty of the landscapes are dreamy.

  • Incredibly beautiful, the beach stretches as far as the eye can see. It's a wonderful walk. It's very windy and cloudy so it isn't the best place to sunbath, but if you want to play in the ocean you can't beat it. The waves are very strong, and as tide pools form you can use the connection to the sea as a sort of waterslide. Some trash from the sea but not to the point where it takes away from the experience.
  • Best beach in Fuerteventura. Lovely landscape, wild and untouched.
  • You have to see this place at least once in your life... Amazing!
  • Amazing beach, one of the miraculous spots on earth I will never forget. And getting there is an adventure itself. Those who enjoy driving on narrow, twisty roads will feel satisfied and happy 😀
  • One of the most magical beaches in Fuerte. Windy as it is but very few people and beautiful scenery!
