Create an itinerary including Sotavento Beach
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.

  • Most beautiful beach. Morning run in the sand. Places for wind and kitesurfers - you can learn with instructors from local school.

  • Beautiful, huge beach. Very well attended. Experience to live for those on holiday on the island. Highly recommended
  • Among the most beautiful sandy beaches of fuerteventura. Easy to reach, ideal for sunbathing, walking on the infinite shoreline and also for wind or sky surf.
