Playa Esmeralda: Fuerteventura's Wind-Protected Gem

Playa Esmeralda, located in Pájara, Fuerteventura, is a white sand bay 400 meters long and 30 meters wide. Characterized by crystal clear turquoise waters and gentle waves, the beach is an oasis of tranquility and wild nature. Despite being a small bay, it offers a secluded haven for those seeking a serene escape. Its relatively wind-protected location makes its waters inviting, ideal for swimming and relaxing. This beach is also known as a naturist destination, offering a pristine and peaceful environment.


Playa Esmeralda separates the beaches of Costa Calma from Playa de Sotavento, one of the most famous destinations in Fuerteventura. Access to the beach is via a dirt road that, while not in great condition, leads directly to its hidden splendor.

Despite its secluded nature, Playa Esmeralda offers some conveniences for visitors. There are hammocks for relaxing and a Chiringuito nearby where you can enjoy refreshments and snacks. The beach, although not very busy, is ideal for those seeking tranquility, away from the crowd and immersed in a peaceful and natural environment.
