Butihondo Beach
#1
Hi
We have been to Fuerteventura for the last five years and normally spend each day in the stone circles, just below Monte Marina apartments on Butihondo beach. We love the location and find the beach stunning, with lovely soft sand underfoot. Its always very busy with naturists, with each stone circle being occupied. Last year was very different, lots of the stone circles were only half built, as the stones were scattered all over the sand, making it very difficult to walk on without footwear. The circles were deserted with only about half a dozen people in total. There did seem to be very high Tides at the time, so I understand that this has had some impact on the structure of the circles. I am also aware that the storms in January 2018 caused a lot of damage, but can anyone tell me if this is the norm, or is it likely to return back to it former glory?
 
Has anyone been to this location this year? What is the beach like now? Is there access to the water, in front of the stone circles, or are there still too many stones on the beach?

I can't comment on the current situation but in general the circles are up to you. I remember last year one German spending most of every day rebuilding one. Collecting stones from all over the beach. Carefully measuring them. Picking the perfect spot. I swear the pyramid builders put less effort into things. I got tired just watching .

On most of the beaches there are rocks under the sand. If the waves wash out the sand you'll end up with exposed rocks.  Eventually the waves bring the sand back.

All I can say is plan for the worst and hope for the best. I've seen sand disappear over the course of a week. Beach sandals are a cheap investment
