Beach description

Esmeralda is a small beach (400 m), which is separated from Sotavento. Located near the town of Costa Calma and attracts vacationers by clean white sand, protection from the winds and possible privacy. The sea is shallow, so swimming on the territory of this beach is a real pleasure and relative calm, if there are children next to you. A beautiful, small and clean beach is also perfect for a romantic walk. Gentle, low waves make this beach truly special and valuable for family vacations, however, vacationers on the beach are not always family. On the territory of Esmeralda, you can meet both a diver and a nudist, but in front of the hotels people are mostly dressed. You can get to the beach from the airport, the distance from which is 70 km. The road to the beach is not in the best condition, but it is still possible to reach by car. In addition, Esmeralda Beach is easily accessible from the crowded Sotavento , which is located next door or from other beaches of the island.

When is it better to go

The beaches of Fuerteventura are suitable for relaxing all year round, but the ocean temperature does not rise above + 21 °C even in the warmest months. Winds constantly blow on the island, which makes the climate milder and more comfortable than in Africa, which is 100 km away.
