Canary Islands Fuerteventura Naturist Beaches

Canary Islands Fuerteventura The naturist beaches list Fuerteventura is on the same latitude as Florida and Cairo. It lies 60 miles off the African coast and has a barren, desert type landscape.

Fuerteventura

Cloudy days are common in winter, but rainfall is extremely low and will be short, sharp showers rather than prolonged periods.

The island is situated in the northeast trade winds and there is a fairly strong NE wind blowing for much of the time.

This is stronger in summer than in winter.

The wind tends to be stronger in the northeast of the island than anywhere else.

On the beaches you will see low walls of black volcanic rock which have been built up as windbreaks, which are very effective.

It is possible to get occasional days of flat calm when the temperature gets really high.

Year round sunbathing is possible with temperatures in the high teens low twenties centigrade in winter (as I write its 20 degrees at 5.30 in the evening) and rarely more than around 28 degrees in summer, due to the cooling wind.

The sun is very strong even in winter, and its quite easy to overdo the sunburn if you are in a sheltered spot.

Corralejo


This is situated about 30 minutes drive from the airport on the northern tip of the island. On the southern edge of the town is the Dunas de Corralejo
National Park – several miles of huge sand dunes along the coast and through which the main road passes.

Textile free is okay anywhere along here except in the immediate vicinity of the two huge, ugly hotels built in the middle of the beach.

South of the hotels there is almost 100% textile free except for one small cove right beside the road, north of them and right up to the building line of Corralejo its more like 50%.
This is one of the main resorts used by British package tour companies. It’s grown enormously over the last few years and is now a characterless, concrete town filled with apartment blocks and a small number of hotels.
However, I’ve not come across any bad accommodation there and to compensate there are plenty of good restaurants.

Most accommodation has its own swimming pool, so the body-guilt ridden brits tend to stay around the pool whilst we few enlightened ones, and the many Germans/Dutch/Austrians head for the beach.


As a rough guide, anyone staying in the town center area will have a 30 – 40 minute brisk walk to the beach, with less walking the further south you are based.

There is also a mini tram which goes from the town center right down to the edge of the built up area near the dunes.

El Cotillo
20 minutes drive from Corralejo across to the NW corner of the island is El Cotillo, a small fishing village.

There are half a dozen very small apartment blocks here, some in the village and some to the north.

There are beaches to the south of the village, under low cliffs, and better ones to the north in a series of small coves.

The last apartment block you come to up here is El Caleton. This is right on the beach, and depending on the frame of mind of your fellow guests its possible to be clothes free all the time.


I’m told its the same at Maravilla Apartments, which are a bit closer to the village. There are half a dozen average restaurants here. This is a really good location for an away from it all break.
