Found on the south east coast of Fuerteventura, Jandia holidays offer visitors a little taste of everything. Make your way through the historic streets of the old town to the soft sandy beach where you can relax, or make the most of the watersports. It’s perfect for those who want to simply unwind and make the most of beach life, with its long stretch of golden sands, beach bars and restaurants, and watersports. The proximity to the beach has influenced the delicious cuisine available in the many restaurants in the town, including freshly caught seafood and fresh local produce.
Jandia town itself is perfect for both couples and families, and offers a fascinating history to discover, as well as modern amenities and facilities. Head to Morro Jable for old streets which wind around pretty whitewashed buildings, quiet cafés, locally run bars, and a bustling harbour where you can watch fishermen bring in their catch of the day. Alternatively, stick to the modern area of Jandia where you will find shops, restaurants, and large hotel complexes.
This modern resort is home to an excellent range of activities, as well as offering the chance to immerse yourself in luxury facilities. Dine around Morro Jable harbour, where you’ll find some of the best fish restaurants on the island, serving up fresh local produce and seafood caught early the same day. Enjoy an excellent selection of fine wines, cocktails, or a cool beer as you watch the sunset, or take a boat trip and explore the coastline and enjoy oysters and lobster, washed down with champagne as your captain guides you through the crystal clear waters.

Like the rest of the Canaries, Fuerteventura is warm and sunny all year round. The temperature rarely drops below the mid-teens even in the winter months, and things only get hotter in July and August, when they often push past 30°C. You’ll find the island’s trade winds take the edge off the heat, though.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills in Fuerteventura include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
