Playa de la Barca

Beach in Playa de Sotavento de Jandía

The beach that most people visualise when they think of Sotavento is Playa de la Barca, signposted from the FV-2, 2.5km south of Costa Calma. This is the wind- and kitesurfers' beach par excellence, with superb facilities for both beginners and pros. At low tide, the powdery white beach is almost 200m wide; when the tide comes in it creates a shallow, turquoise lagoon ideal for children – and newbie windsurfers.
