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.
