Gran Tarajal

Urban beach with an authentic feel
Gran Tarajal is the main town in the municipality of Tuineje, in the south-central area of ​​Fuerteventura. The area is known for having the best, Blue-Flag-approved urban beach in Fuerteventura. The kilometre-long stretch of dark sand has a magnificent maritime avenue with a marina. It is a perfect place for a walk or a sit-down meal in one of the restaurants offering local cuisine. Gran Tarajal is not a touristy area, and the local people are recognised for their authenticity and collective spirit. This is reflected in the interesting cultural events held close and the large iconic murals that decorate the town.
