Places in Fuerteventura
Península de Jandía
Most of the Península de Jandía is protected by its status as the Parque Natural de Jandía. The southwest is a canvas of craggy hills and bald plains leading to cliffs west of Morro Jable. Much of the rest of the peninsula is made up of dunes, scrub and beaches. It is said that German submarine crews used to hole up along the peninsula occasionally during WWII.
More staid than its northern counterpart Corralejo, Morro Jable is almost exclusively German. The beach is the main attraction, with pale golden sand stretching for around 4km from the older part of town. It’s fronted by low-rise, immaculately landscaped apartments and hotels.
