Costa de la Calma Hotels / Self-Catering Accommodation on Costa de la Calma

Costa Calma is situated on the east coast of Fuerteventura, around 50 miles (80km) south of the island's airport. This purpose-built resort is popular with families and couples looking for a quiet and relaxing beach holiday. The highlight of Costa Calma is its attractive beach of fine sand which rarely gets crowded, even during the high season.

Costa Calma's first hotel opened in 1977, but tourism didn't really take off here until the 1980's when the new road from the capital, Puerto del Rosario, was completed. The resort was built around the small hamlet of Canada del Rio, although great care was taken to ensure the area was not buried under a sea of concrete and high-rise hotels. Several green zones have been created in and around the resort. The approach road to Costa Calma, which is surrounded by Canarian pines and palm trees, is an important wildlife haven and is home to a flock of colourful European Hoopoes.

The main beach at Costa Calma is situated within a large bay and is about a mile long. The sea here is usually quite calm (hence the resort's name) so is suitable for children. Various facilities are available, including showers, toilets and a small beach bar. There is also a windsurfing school. Costa Calma does not have a seafront promenade - instead many of the apartments and hotels are situated directly next to the beach.

To the south of Costa Calma is the huge Playa de Sotavento, which stretches for about 12 miles (20km) towards the neighbouring resort of Morro Jable. This beach can get quite breezy, so it is usually popular among windsurfers. There is even a large wind farm situated nearby. An extinct volcano, Pico de Zarza, overlooks Sotavento beach to create a stunning and memorable scene. Some holidaymakers attempt to walk from Costa Calma to Morro Jable. If you want to try this, allow yourself plenty of time and go prepared. Take lots of water, some food and sunscreen. Fortunately though, there is a reliable bus service between the two resorts, so you do not have to walk back. Alternatively, a taxi ride from Morro Jable costs about 16 euros.

There are several small shopping centres dotted throughout Costa Calma, such as El Palmeral, Bahia Calma and Sotavento. At most of these complexes you will find supermarkets, clothing stores and souvenir shops. One of the most popular events in Costa Calma is the weekly Sunday morning market. The colourful stalls sell a range of goods aimed at holidaymakers.

Costa Calma has many reasonably priced restaurants offering Italian, Chinese and local cuisine. Nightlife in the resort tends to be fairly quiet, although there are several discos and late night bars. One of the most popular discos is Bounce in the El Palmeral shopping centre. Some of the bars provide entertainment such as karaoke nights, although this is usually aimed towards German tourists.

There are several bus stops throughout Costa Calma, with services to Morro Jable, Pajara, Costa de Antigua and Puerto del Rosario. Bus timetables can usually be found in local magazines.

Morro Jable Tourist Information   by Gary Marshall

Morro Jable Hotels / Self-Catering Accommodation in Fuerteventura

Morro Jable is a resort situated on the southern tip of Fuerteventura. The town actually consists of two parts, Jandia, which is the modern resort, and the old fishing village of Morro Jable. Both parts, which merge into one another, are together often referred to as Jandia by many travel brochures. To further confuse things, the peninsular on which the town is situated is also known as 'Jandia'.

Morro Jable is now one of the island's largest resorts, popular with German and British holidaymakers. It is best known for its superb beaches of fine white sand which stretch for several miles. The section of beach close to the lighthouse is known as Playa de Matorral and is suitable for young children. Between Playa de Matorral and the road is a protected area of natural salt marshes.

There is an excellent choice of water sports available at Morro Jable, including windsurfing, sailing and jet skiing. One of the most popular excursions is the catamaran sailing trip around the magnificent Jandia peninsular. A short distance from the resort is the 807-metre Pico de Zarza, the highest point on the island. Many holidaymakers attempt to climb the mountain - and the superb views from the summit make it worthwhile - although you should go well prepared with food, water and sun hat if you are tempted to have a go.

The main road through the resort is the Avenida del Saladar. Alongside this tree-lined thoroughfare, which runs parallel to the seafront, are various bars, cafes and restaurants. There are also several shopping centres in Morro Jable, the biggest one being the Cosmo Centro Comercial. The Cosmo centre is the resort's focal point; as well as having numerous shops, the complex also hosts the Thursday morning market and is home to the Aloe Vera centre. This is a good place to come if you are suffering from a bit of sunburn - the Aloe Vera oils, which are produced from one of the island's main crops, can really help to soothe the pain.

Most of Morro Jable's nightlife takes place in the pubs around the Cosmo Centre. Although there are a couple of discos in the resort, the action is fairly low key. The area around the old harbour is packed with traditional restaurants offering locally-sourced seafood. There are a variety of restaurants along the promenade serving a range of cuisine, including Chinese, Italian and Canarian.

The 18-hole Jandia Golf Club is situated 3 miles (5km) north of the resort. This par-72 course, designed by Ron Kirby and opened in 2007, benefits from a superb natural setting. As it is fairly challenging, the course is recommended for more experienced players.

Morro Jable is about 55 miles (90km) from Fuerteventura's airport, although a new road which opened in 2005 has reduced transfer times. There are occasional buses from the resort to Caleta de Fuste and the airport. Morro Jable's tourist office is located in the Cosmo Centro Comercial. Maps and information about excursions are both available from here. There are ferry services from Morro Jable to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
