Costa Calma

The beginning of the Jandia Peninsula

Posted by Barry Nixon

Costa Calma is the second largest resort of the island based on the south east coast. This is the narrowest part of Fuerteventura. The resort is surrounded by large sand dunes, many travellers spend their beach holidays here.

Founded in the 1970s, the village is today particularly popular with international holidaymakers. International cuisine from Germany, Italy and Britain can be found here. The sandy beaches I found where surrounded by apartment rentals and hotels . The beaches of the resort host a wide range of leisure activities, gastronomy and water sports for a varied holiday to suit all.

Costa Calma means calm coast in Spanish

The place owes its name to the offshore wind, which creates small waves and makes the coast look “calm”. This wind also turns the beaches in the area into hotspots for windsurfers and kitesurfers.

Prevailing western winds normally leave this part of the coast and its waters protected and calm.

There over 40 Costa Calma beach resort hotels

Firstly I need to add that Costa Calma hotels are mainly child friendly and Secondly there’s at least 10 on the beach front.

However because it welcomes everyone there are also adults only hotels too.

Don’t miss the beaches

Water sports are very important on the beaches of Fuerteventura.

Especially because one of the two big beaches south of Costa Calma because Playa de la Barca holds the World wind surfing championships. We enjoyed the constant Costa Calma weather wind conditions in the south, it’s easy to see why it provides perfect conditions for surfing. That said because of the variation of beaches beginners are also welcome so it’s a all round winning resort for everyone.

We twice walked for 4 hours the Risco del Paso beach in the perfect sunshine enjoying the stunning scenery and sparking sea. The first trip was a bit windy on the more exposed part. On this occasion we witnessed Kitesurfer’s enjoy the surf.

The second walk was very calm our children ran up and down the shoreline with sand between their toes.

It’s not just about the beaches

Although this area is particularly popular with Beach goers there are many attractions of beauty in the area.

We visited nature parks, the Oasis Park Zoo with over 250 different animals on show including

Sea Lions



and birds of prey

The Zoo offered our children some unforgettable experiences swimming with the Sea Lions and riding camels backs. The adventurous camel ride took us through a beautiful landscape of Fuerteventura.
