Take a swim in the calm and crystal clear, turquoise blue water or sunbathe in the fine sand, perfect for families with children, couples, young and old. This beach is commonly known as “La Concha” (the Shell) because of its shape, although the official name is La Caleta because of the limescale oven that played an important role in the construction of the “Martiño” lighthouse. From here you can see in the distance the dunes of Corralejo, the contours of Fuerteventura and when turning your back to the sea, appreciate the unique mountain “La Caldera”. Don’t forget to visit the nearby statue of Josefine Plá, the Spanish writer, poet and essayist, who was born on the island.

Time stands still here as you take in the silence and colour of this splendid natural surrounding.  Whilst visiting the Northern part of the island, you will find the lighthouse, whose first lighthouse keeper was Josefine Plá’s father. Nowadays, the lighthouse works fully automatically and has been restored to its full splendour. Within the shade of this structure, stop for a rest while admiring the sea and Lanzarote with its volcanoes in the background. Admire the volcanic nature of the island’s interior and take a walk on the “Saladar (salt marsh) del Faro Martiño” and “Las Lagunitas”.

What people are saying about Fuerteventura

We had a great time, the captain put on a show and we were well looked after. Because my sister is partial sighted and I had injured my knee, one of the crew brought us our food and made sure we had a good view. Some people saw dolphins but we missed them and didn’t see much through the glass bottom which was a shame but that didn’t really matter, when your hosts appear to love what they do, your experience is so much better. The crew spoke fluently in lots of different languages and made us feel very welcome before we even got on board. Be prepared for it to be a bit choppy and a possible soaking at the front before you even stop for the swimming!

Es ist einfach ein perfekter Tag gewesen! Kristina ist ein toller Guide. Wir haben sogar noch eine Tour bei gebucht. Die Tapas Tour. Leute bucht bei dieser lieben Person! Ihr werdet es nicht bereuen! Mehr an Info‘s über Land und kann man woanders nicht bekommen und man hat eine tolle Zeit ohne Touristenburgen! Ich danke dir Kristin, für den tollen Tag.
