Playa de Gran Tarajal

Playa de Gran Tarajal - Spain
© Frank Vincentz

Playa de Gran Tarajal sits along Fuerteventura’s southeast coast. Edged by whitewashed villas that climb part of the way up the surrounding hills, it stretches for approximately 600 metres with sand that shifts between golden yellow and black dependent upon the prevailing weather conditions.

A favourite with locals rather than tourists, it can be up to 90 metres wide at low tide and generally has good swimming conditions thanks to a protective pier. A promenade running alongside the beach offers visitors a number of restaurants, cafes and bars, while facilities on the beach itself include toilets, a children’s playground, beach volleyball court, football pitch, and open showers at various points along its length.
