The Costa Calma or the “Calm Coast” in English is an interesting choice of name. This part of Fuerteventura is popular for windsurfing and other board activities. The resort is little more than a small bay that covers a distance of 1.5 kilometres.
Costa Calma has a large German population so you may need to brush up on your language skills. Here there are some excellent bars, cafes, restaurants and entertainment on offer. One of the top attractions on the island is not far, the super Oasis Park Zoo is a 10 minute drive north.
Playa Costa Calma (Main Resort Beach)
Playa Costa Calma is actually the main beach here which is vastly different to Sotavento. There are hardly any waves here thanks to the surrounding bay that protects the resort. This beach is well kept all year round and was given a Blue Flag in 2006.
The sand is a beautiful golden colour which is very fine in composition. There is a beach bar here for food and drinks and hire services for parasols and sun loungers. Water Sports are big business here with several surfing and dive academies in the area. These dive centres offer many different courses for diving and other disciplines.

This unique park is by far the top place for hiking in Fuerteventura Pico de la Zarza is the highest point on the island at 807 metres.

Jandia Natural Park (picture above) is a protected area which is part desert and part volcanic in composition. This park stretches to the southern tip of the island and is well worth exploring during your visit.
