Sotavento Beach

Reviewed By marlynn52 - Portchester, Fareham United Kingdom

Stunning, huge, beautiful beach. A fabulous Promenade for walkers, joggers, cyclists and skaters. Very clean water and golden sand. The surf can vary, sometimes suitable for Surfing or watching, other times ok for swimming and paddling, a bit rough for weak swimmers, children etc. Lots of cares along the way, toilets, showers, everything you could want to see there, even a few nudists!

Playa de Sotavento

Reviewed By Travelsome-Twosome - Nottingham

You can walk for miles and hardly see a sole. Not too many facilities along the way so take water and sun screen as no shelter once you walk away from resort. Check tides before walking as you could get caught between rocky outcrops.

Nalusurf

Reviewed By Maria I

Nach einigem Suchen haben wir uns für Nalusurf entschieden, weil 1. Super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis und 2. Schönes Apartment. Die Kommunikation mit den Betreibern hat super geklappt und wir haben viele Tipps für unsere Freizeit bekommen. Der Unterricht selber hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und wir haben in kürzester Zeit viel gelernt und auch geschafft! Alles in allem, ein supernettes und professionelles Team und tolle Surferlebnisse. Gerne wieder!

Waveguru Surfschool & Surfcamp

Reviewed By superwinner

My time at Fuerteventura
I was on the island for two weeks mainly for Surfing. First I wanted to take classes with another surf school but then I got so annoyed by their inflexibility of planning that I looked for a smaller, more familiar, one which is flexible in dates and lessons. I quickly noticed the website of waveguru surfschool.
The school
It’s not one of those mass toursism schools where hundreds of people are taught to surf every week and are treated like numbers! No, it’s a small and familiar one with groups mostly not bigger than 4-6 people (sometimes we were even 2 at the F-course).
That’s also why you get to know each other very quickly and it is more fun.
There would even be a camp with matresses to stay for FREE if you take lessons or rent material.
Surroundings
As the school is a 10min walk from the sea you can easily rent a surfboard and go Surfing without using a car. As I lived in Costa Calma I was always shuttled to la Pared or I hick hitched which took me never more than 10 min to wait (many tourist and locals pick you up).
Prices
As I took some days I got cheaper with everyday. In the end the owner of the school made me a fair offer for the last few days (Price-Performance-ratio is really good).
Teachers
Good experienced surfers. I did some Surfing before and it was really the first school also teaching the theory behind for intermediates (streams, canals etc. )

Beautiful beach. Golden sands. Crystal blue waters. Plenty of open spaces for those disliking rows of sunbeds. Safe swimming.

Playa de la Barca

Reviewed By Lewbo85 - Manchester, United Kingdom

This beach is perfect, about 10-12km of beautiful white sand. It's a lot quieter if you are driving and follow signs to the Lagoon, where you will find a quiet area with no sunbeds. Be warned though, there are no lifeguards on duty at that part of the beach and the rides can be quite powerful.
