At six kilometres long, Barlovento is one of the biggest beaches in Pájara. Located in southern Fuerteventura, this wild, secluded beach is uniquely charming – ideal for thrill-seekers and lovers of open, calm settings alike.
Getting here is not easy; to reach this section of coastline, you must travel the dirt track that runs from Morro Jable towards
Cofete for forty to fifty minutes.
The roads can be difficult to manage and the journey involves long stretches of dirt track that is narrow in places and difficult to manoeuvre – off-road vehicles
are best suited to the job. You can also come by public transport: the bus to Cofete stops right by the beach.
Consisting of a huge stretch of golden sand, Barlovento Beach is often subject to strong, dangerous ocean currents, so swimming is not advised. In addition, its frequent strong winds mean visiting on stiller days will offer you the chance to enjoy all of the beach’s charm.
Barlovento Beach is particularly popular with nudists and naturists thanks to its unique environmental features and secluded, pristine setting. There are no buildings of any kind here, so you will need to bring food and drink from home – the small bar in the nearest shanty town is around a kilometre away. This is a trip worth making.
