Sharing a tranquil scene that is stilled burned into my mind from 5 years ago this September.
Since 2009, the island, located off the extreme southwestern coast of Morocco, has been a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Unlike the other Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is far less developed and offers miles and miles of beaches where you literally might not see more than a handful of people the entire day.
It’s usually dead quiet around this part of the beach, except in July when the Windsurfing & Kitesurfing World Cup is held on this beach.
“Fuerte” means strong in Spanish. Trust me, the winds on this island at times can turn the beaches into a sandblast fest!
It remains one of my favorite beaches.
