Cofete beach

A wild twelve-kilometre beach in Fuerteventura
As one of the wildest beaches in the Canaries, with the largest dimensions and least urban developments, it is hard to find the adjectives to Cofete beach justice. Located in the north of the Jandia peninsula in the south of Fuerteventura, Cofete is a visual feast of endless golden sand, wild seas and a wonderful sense of freedom. Its twelve kilometres, the scarcity of houses, lack of paved roads and the need for a 4x4 to get there says everything about it. The term 'virgin' was invented for this beach.
Swim next to the mountains of Jandía
Reaching Cofete is not easy: the road is made up of dirt and rocks. It runs for 8.5 kilometres, with difficult sections, but it is surmountable if skilled. Those who dare to venture it will be rewarded with awed amazement as they take in the immensity of the mountains of Jandia, the cape known as El Islote and the fury of the Atlantic, which should be treated with the utmost respect. After passing through a small village with a restaurant, all that is left to do is park the car and enjoy long walks north or south. A stunning beach that more than justifies the effort to get there.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants from the environment.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not use soap or gel in the showers located at the entrance to the beach.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
- Pets are prohibited at most beaches. Make sure you can take them beforehand.
