The Canary Islands are well known for their beaches, Fuerteventura specifically. However, if there was one resort that is most proud of their sandy shores, it's Jandia; and with good reason. Located at the southern end of the island, there's a definite split between sections. The northern portion of the very long beach front is predominantly naturist, whereas the south is more for families. Of course this isn't strictly enforced so if you want to wander between the two, no one's going to blame you.
While there are the beaches to keep you nice and warm during the day, if you get a little hot you might want to retreat to the safety of the nearby bars. There are plenty of Spanish, British and German owned establishments, so wherever you're from you're likely to feel welcome; they're also well versed in many European languages, so expect communication to be nice and easy. At these locations they serve a wide variety of exotic and traditional drinks, keeping you hydrated and relaxed throughout your trip. At night time they kick it up a notch, bringing excitement and a real party feel, contrasting the real relaxing atmosphere of the daytime.
If you fancy an interesting day out during your holiday in Jandia, you should visit the nearby fishing village of Morro Jable where you'll see traditional fishing techniques employed. Or, if you are more in the mood for wildlife the Jandia National park isn't far from the resort.
If you're in the mood for water sports, simply step onto the beach and take a look around. You won't have to go far to find a shack hiring out surfboards or body boards, with wetsuits available for those that want to keep extra warm in the already comfortable waters around the island. Wind surfing, water skiing and jet skis are also available, keeping you plenty busy during the long, warm hours of the day.
Still, thanks to the near 25 mile long beaches, one of the most popular activities is simply taking an epic beach walk. With a 50 mile round trip if you did the whole thing, there's more than enough sand to tire yourself out; perfect for stretching your legs after a long day of relaxation. If you are in the exploring mood there are plenty of other holiday locations to enjoy whilst on holiday in Fuerteventura.
