Imagine a place where the sun shines for over 3,400 hours a year and where spectacular landscapes are pretty much everywhere you go. This is what Jandia is all about. This stunning resort town is located on the south coast of Fuerteventura, an area known for its outstanding natural beauty and for its relaxed feel. Jandia is actually on a peninsula that has been a protected area since the 1980s, so this resort town is not your typical Canary Island beach town.
When to Go
The Canary Islands are often called 'the lucky islands' due to their mild and pleasant weather. And certainly, Jandia benefits from the islands' tropical climate from January to December. One could say that there isn't a wrong time of the year to visit this island, as average annual temperatures always hover around 23°C. Water temperatures average 20°C throughout the year, so it's always a good time to go for a dip on the sea in Jandia. If you are looking for a place where winter doesn't really exist, Jandia is the perfect destination for you.
Where to Stay
The resort of Jandia developed out of a small and remote fishing village. Although the village is now a town, Jandia remains a small-scale resort where most accommodation options are clustered around the Morro Jable area. This area is ideal for a cheap family holiday, as several all inclusive hotels combine great amenities with proximity to the town centre. If you are after a secluded location, the area east of Morro Jable is your best bet.
Attractions & Events
Jandia's 20 miles of spectacular beaches are the resort's main attraction. Starting at Morro Jable, you can explore Jandia's breathtaking coastline, where the azure tones of the ocean contrast with the beaches' powdery white sand. Sunbathing, windsurfing, and kite surfing are the most popular things to do here. To get away from it all, head to the often-deserted Cofete beach. Other popular activities include jeep safari tours, hikes through the lush landscapes of Jandia's National Park, and catamaran cruising.
As for the events calendar, the most important celebrations in Jandia include Carnival, the San Juan fiesta (an impressive set of firework displays that take place in June), and the world's surfing championships, held here in July/August.
Jandia's laid back atmosphere and unparalleled natural beauty are just some of the reasons to visit this unique sun and beach destination.
