Playa del Aljibe de la Cueva

Playa del Aljibe de la Cueva - Spain

Separated from its neighbouring beaches by low walls of natural rock, Playa del Ajibe de la Cueva is just south of the village of El Cotillo on Fuerteventura’s northwest coast. Approximately 400 metres in length, it is primarily formed from fine sand a beautiful golden colour.

Particularly population with the island’s young people, Playa del Ajibe de la Cueva is also regarded as a top destination for windsurfing and kitesurfing due to the constant cross/offshore breeze. Semi-circular stone structures provide some shelter from the wind for beachgoers not tempted by the waters.

Although equipment rental is not possible on the beach itself, lifeguards are on duty at popular times. Open to the Atlantic Ocean, waves can be very strong, so nervous swimmers are advised to stick to the light-hued shallows.
