Whether you're looking for a sense of adventure or you're happy to just chill out on the beach while you catch the rays, Jandia could be a perfect spot for you. Located in the south of Fuerteventura, Jandia used to be a peninsula on its own but, over the years, a build-up of sandy deposits have reunited it with the island and, in turn, provided some of the best beaches in the world!
Whenever you choose to holiday in Jandia, the weather will almost certainly be what you're looking for ' year-round heat, blue skies and warm climes mean that even if you choose to go in the height of winter, you'll still be pleasantly surprised.

You'll be hard-pressed to find fault with this dazzling area, where taking a relaxing beach break is the name of the game.
While it's an incredibly popular resort for fellow Europeans, Morro Jable offers more of an afternoon trip for Brits looking to venture away from the beaches of Jandia - if they can bear to peel themselves away from the sand, that is! While tourism has certainly taken hold in the resort, the traditional and rustic old village is still going strong, giving you a perfect spot to take a stroll and admire the sights as you go.
The beach at Cofete is well-worth the 40 minute drive from Jandia but remember to take time to appreciate the landscapes as you drive the distance, too. Rugged, sparse and just as nature intended, this area of Fuerteventura has barely been touched by the human hand and provides dynamic, unspoiled beauty at its finest.
La Lajita Oasis Adventure Park
With something for the whole family, this funtastic adventure park can be found just a little outside of Jandia and includes a whole host of superb attractions, including elephants, giraffes and monkeys.

Climb to the Top of Pico de Zarza
As Fuerteventura's highest point, you can imagine what views await anyone who is up to the challenge of climbing to the summit. The track that leads the way is well kept, so you don't need to worry too much about rocky terrain. Take plenty of water and spend some quality time admiring the panoramas that can be observed every step of the way.
Hire a 4x4

Windsurf in the Atlantic

Sitting proudly on the southern tip of the island, Jandia is a relatively peaceful but perfectly formed resort that appeals to people of all ages.
