Sotavento Beach, Costa Calma

4.7
Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
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.

  • Still our favourite beach especially if you head to the right just before it reaches Mal Nombre, great for naturists but when it's windy, boy is it windy, couple of days we had to abandon it totally.....  more »
  • Beautiful white sandy beach with turquoise sea... what’s not to love! P.S. does contain naturists (as do most beaches on the island) and can be windier than other beaches on Fuerteventura!  more »
