Holidays in
Playa De Jandia

A Canarian sunshine hotspot

On the sun-baked southeast coast of Fuerteventura, Playa de Jandia is a beach-lover’s paradise. Stretching from Costa Calma to Morro Jable, this resort is home to vast, unspoiled, golden stretches of sand, with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and epic mountainous scenery on the other.

Playa de Jandia holidays are ideal for families and couples looking for a laid-back atmosphere. The bars and cafés dotted along the shoreline offer a pleasant, understated buzz – this is not a late-night party playground. Instead, picture long, lazy days spent soaking up the sunshine on a powdery beach, basking in calm, shallow waters that are perfect for little ones, and enjoying the water sports and surfing opportunities afforded by the balmy ocean breeze. If you can drag yourself away from the sun-bleached sands, Playa de Jandia town is a charming area for a spot of shopping – with local artisan crafts and interesting independent retailers – as well as snacking on Canarian cuisine. Holidays to Playa de Jandia offer everything you need to unwind and recharge: sun, sand, swim, surf, shop, eat – and repeat.
