Playa del Matorral
Playa del Matorral Jandia Fuerteventura
Is a large sandy beach. Stretching for kilometers. It’s fairly wide at points reaching more then several hundred metres of width. Very relaxed and peaceful. Even when the beach is busy it’s not crowded. You’ll find sun loungers for rent but you’ll also find long stretches of free sandy beach.
Along the beach activities include surfing and sailing.
Beach walkers take advantage of the long expanse to wander . Just a reminder you’ll have to walk back.
Playa del Matorral is an easy walk from the near by hotels. You will need to take the path that crosses the nature reserve ( Saladar de Jandía) don’t even think of crossing at other points. The area is protected and fragile. You may see birds.
You’ll find various life guard stations on the beach. Pay attention to the colour of the flag they display. The waves can get quite strong. It should go without saying heed the instructions of the life guards.
The beach is wide open and can be windy. The loungers are protected by wind breaks. If you’re staying for a few days the shops also sell small wind breaks to use on the free sections of the beach.
