Punta Blanca Beach is found between Majanicho and Tostón lighthouse in the town of La Oliva in northern Fuerteventura. Its unique location within an inlet acts as a shield against the strong waves.
The protection of the cove helps keep the waters calm, which means it is a great surfing spot for any level. It is a windy beach
with soft, white sand – but interestingly, it is surrounded by grey lava. This beach is a favourite among surfers and windsurfers and offers several surf schools for visitors looking to learn the sport or to hire the necessary equipment.
The area has a rich fishing history dating back to the pre-Columbian era. Fishing and shellfishing continued to be important activities in the region following the arrival of the Conquistadores, and the houses found up and down the length of the beach are home to the fishermen who make their living here.
You can drive to Punta Blanca by taking the dirt track found on the North Shore, a coastal area stretching from the Corralejo mills to Tostón lighthouse.
