The most famous beach on Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, is surely Playa Blanca. This is an ideal beach for enjoying the sun and the fine sand with your family or partner, but Playa Blanca is particularly perfect for surfing, no matter what way you look at it. The weather conditions, with plenty of wind, make it the ideal place for water sports such as windsurfing.

It spans nearly 900 meters, the sand is golden and it is easy to access, therefore there are plenty of people there. It is so easy to arrive, even by bus, meaning you don’t have to rent a car if you don’t want to. Once on the beach it is easy to get used to the sand. Being in an open area of the Atlantic with no barriers, the wind often causes fairly big waves. Thanks to the wind, surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers thrive on this beach.

But even if you’re not a surfer you can still enjoy this beach. The large service offer guarantees a pleasant stay for you. Of all the beaches in the main city, the locals choose Playa Blanca as their favorite. The surfers gather in the northern part, while the south is extremely calm. It is wide, with gold sand, perfect for relaxing or taking long walks, with plenty of space to choose from to set down your towel. The seaside walk is plentiful in bars and restaurants and there is plenty of fun in the evenings.

As you can see, there’s no excuse. Whether you like water sports or not, you’ll love

Playa Blanca!
