Jandia is a region to the south of Fuerteventura and is ideal for those who want to see the quieter side of the island – but who also retain a sense of adventure.

The scenic delights of Jandia are clear to see, with mile upon mile of white sand lining the coastal regions and a huge national park – the Parque National de Jandia covering much of the inland area.

Here, you’ll have plenty of chance to explore rare flora and fauna, and might even spot some African birds that have made the short flight from the mainland.

As well as relaxing on the beach, you might elect to take to the water if windsurfing is your thing, with the southern coast being famed for the favourable conditions.

You can also enjoy some of the best dining on the island in the small fishing village of Morro Jable, where fresh seafood is a particular speciality.
