Learn all you need to know about the well-hidden gems of Fuerteventura:
Playa de Jarugo in Fuerteventura
Playa Tebeto is one of the most hard-to-reach hidden beaches in Fuerteventura. It’s a wild beach created from the mouth of a steep gorge of the same name, with large waves and a strong swell that makes bathing dangerous. This is the reason why you need to be extra cautious if you decide to swim there, as it may be tricky for those who are not experienced swimmers.
Tip: for those who like walking along the shore, we suggest visiting the small nude-friendly coves near Tebeto beach, yet another amazing hidden beach in Fuerteventura.
Playa de Jarugo
Playa de Jarugo or Jarubio is located in the northwestern part of Fuerteventura, near Tebeto beach. Two large cliffs protect the sandy beach, hence this place remains a well-hidden secret for locals, as it’s not frequently visited by tourists. You can combine your visits to both Tebeto and Jarugo beaches on the same day, as they’re very close. Just as at Tebeto beach, swimmers should be very careful.
Cala de Ojos
It’s a small, isolated beach with fine golden sand. If you’re up for peace and relaxation, then you can spend the day on this beach away from the crowds. Make sure you bring water, and snacks as the nearest village is 2 km away.
Playa Roque del Moro
Roque del Moro is a giant monolith in the south of the island. You can leave your car on the road before descending, and then take the path and walk for approximately 30 minutes. Not many people visit this hidden beach in Fuerteventura, hence you can enjoy the view, and relax in peace.
Tip: when it’s low tide, you may find natural pools carved in the rocks of the shore.

Playa del Aguila
It is also known as Playa de las Escaleras (Steps’ Beach) as there are some small steps made of stone that lead you to the beach. Unfortunately, they’re not well preserved, so you need to be extra careful when you descend. Bear in mind that you need to visit the beach at low tide, as the rest of the time its golden sand is flooded with water up to the stairs!
Playa de Agua Liques
It’s located in the southern part of Fuerteventura, and it’s one of the hidden beaches you can’t miss during your stay on the island! You can discover dunes and sand formations whose origin dates back to the Quaternary. You can easily get there through the route of Costa Calma and then walk until the shore.
Super cool fun fact: the beach was used as the set for Han Solo and The Rise of Skywalker, two episodes of the Star Wars saga.
Playa de la Solapa
Majoreros (the inhabitants of Fuerteventura) believe that Playa de la Solapa is one of the most beautiful, idyllic, and wild beaches in the west of the island. It’s a beach that combines both golden and black sand, a unique mixture in Fuerteventura. Like at all western beaches, you need to be extra careful when swimming due to the strong swells that prevail in the area.
