Playa del Águila (La Escaleras)
A wild and relatively wind-swept section of Fuerteventura’s northwest coast, Playa del Águila also goes by the name of Playa de la Escalera, or Stairs Beach. A beach for a romantic sunset stroll rather than family day out, its orange-gold sands are backed by high sheer cliffs and lack any kind of facilities.
To reach it, visitors must travel a short distance along an unsurfaced road before tackling a set of steps widely accepted to be in need of renovation. Tranquil as a result, Playa del Águila is a stunning place for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors, although its 600-metre length and 25 metre depth of sand can be entirely lost during the highest tides each month.
