Jandia Beach kite spot in Fuerteventura

Europe kitesurf spot in Spain

Jandia is famous for its beautiful nature reserve filled with flora and fauna. But the reserve is not complete without its white sandy Jandia beach. It is one prominent kitesurf spot on the south-western coast of the Canary Islands. The island itself is an appealing destination due to its mild and comfortable weather all year round. Jandia beach is no exception to that climate. You'll find many freestyle wind and kitesurfers gathering here every year because the annual championship takes place at Playa de Sovento, which is merely 5 minutes away from this beach. Surfing on the tides may take you a bit afar when you can witness village fishers working in the shallow water.

The beach connects to the mainland of Fuerteventura with a narrow piece of land or an isthmus.

This is why the beach is popular among naturists as much as with the kiteboarder communities. The coast stretches so far that you might find a secluded spot on the beach to sunbathe and relax peacefully or hang around with your fellow kitesurfers for Kiteboarding.
