Cofete Beach is located just around the headland from the southern tip of Fuertaventura. The bright lights and resorts to the north of the island will do nothing to prepare you for the awe-inspiring scale and wildness of this beach. The beach is a wide expanse of golden sand that continues for as far as the eye can see. Directly behind the beach the dramatic mountains of Jandia rise hundreds of metres, there faces carved by thousands of years of harsh, dry winds. Set near the foot of the great slope is the mysterious Villa Winter, an abandoned eccentric villa that was built shortly after World War II by a German engineer. Rumours and theories abound about this isolated house.
