Sotavento Beach

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

During our holiday on Fuerteventura the isle really got me fascinating. Often people think that to see some beautiful and nice beaches of white sand and to practice watersports you have to go very far.

In my opinion this is wrong, because on Fuerteventura, on the canary archipelago you find many beaches, which look like in the Caribbean.

We enjoyed at the beaches not only by sunbathing and doing watersports, we had very nice moments strolling along the romantic beaches. My favorite beach on the isle of Fuerteventura with difference is the beach of Sotavento in the South, between Costa Calma and Morro Jable.

Mysterious stone buildings on the beach

Who visited Fuerteventura for a holiday maybe saw some mysterious stone buildings in the form of a U on the beaches. Those stone buildings are found over all in the area around Jandia and Costa Calma, where people love to enjoy the sun at the beaches and also on some other beaches on Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

The locals call those stone buildings hoyos, what means something like hole or tumb. For tourists with fantasy those stone buildings can be like a hiding place or a fortress.
