Glass Beach – El Burro

Unspoiled Beauty and Adventure Await at Glass Beach

Playa del Burro, also known as Glass Beach, stands as a prime tourist attraction in La Oliva. Stretching over 700 meters, its expansive fine white sand often gives visitors the sensation of having the beach to themselves. Circular stone structures dot the shoreline, designed to shield beachgoers from occasionally gusty winds. Strategically positioned, the beach offers views of vast dunes to the north and the majestic Red Mountain to the south. Sunsets here are a sight to behold, especially as the sun dips behind the park’s volcanic backdrop.


Nestled in the Dunas de Corralejo Natural Park—one of Fuerteventura’s northern highlights—Glass Beach is conveniently reachable by car from both Corralejo and Parque Holandes.

Activities and Facilities

In the summer, this beach becomes a popular spot for surfers and windsurfers, drawn by the good wave quality. Check the technical sheet for surfing and windsurfing at Glass Beach. Apart from serving as a haven for water sports enthusiasts, Playa del Burro is a family favorite. Kids delight in building sandcastles and frolicking in the crystalline waters. Thanks to the protective bay, it’s an idyllic spot for both swimming and playing.

With its unique blend of natural beauty, Glass Beach stands out as a jewel in Fuerteventura.
