A laid-back hidden gem

Perched on the southeastern tip of Fuerteventura, Esquinzo is a beach-blessed coastal town with a quiet, easy-going charm. As you’re soaking up the sun while standing on one of its dazzling stretches of powder-soft sand, you can take in panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, while rolling mountain vistas create a majestic backdrop. Esquinzo holidays are perfect for beach bunnies, and the shoreline is dotted with modern hotel complexes that are ideal for families and couples who are looking for a relaxing getaway.

Holidays to Esquinzo are also great for surfers, as the sea serves up big, barrelling waves – and you don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the water sports here, as stand-up paddle boarding and windsurfing are both perfect options for beginners. Away from the fine beaches, nature lovers are well catered for. Esquinzo has easy access to the rugged peaks of the Jandia Nature Reserve – an incredible mountainous region offering excellent hikes and walks.
