Hi guest and welcome to the Fuerteventura forum. This is just a reminder of mandatory masks almost everywhere on the island.

Corralejo or Jandia
#1
Hi. Which part of the island is more suitable for young naturists? We are in our late 20s amd we have dealt with bad gawkers and voyeurs in Maspalomas and we chose Fuerteventura to avoid that. But at the same time it would be good to be surrounded by naturists of our age. Also seems the north of the island has a bigger variety of beaches with both El Cotillo and Corralejo having several spots

What is your advice?
Thanks

Hi Kalel. Welcome to the forum.  Age wise there is virtually no difference between North and South, as far as I am aware. In your age bracket you are in the minority here as most visitors tend to be at the opposite end of the age scale!! (You might hear the odd knee creak!).

For me, the difference between North and South is simply: English or German?  If you are fluent in German, the South will be good for you, if English, then it has to be the north. 

Whichever you decide, I hope you both enjoy your time here.

Thank you for your reply Tom. We dont really mind the language barrier.
We just would prefer to have a bigger choice of nude beaches to choose from rather than just one. For that, the north seems more appropriate then the south. Also would like to avoid the crowd, but maybe it is impossible on easter. The south's beaches seem way bigger and appropriate for this goal. Maspalomas was absolutely jammed with tourists this summer. Still can't really choose one or the other though. Might have to play head/tail to decide.

The North wins hands down for the beaches and if you explore (risking taking the hire car off road) you will discover an entire beach to yourself.  That you can't do in the south. 

If you avoid Corralejo, you will have trouble finding anywhere crowded!

Thank you for the advice. Any place outside of Corralejo and the El Cotillo lagoons, which I suppose are quite crowded as well, to hit?

La Concha at Cotillo can get busy but drive past it, up towards the lighthouse, turn right just before the lighthouse and there you have about 6km of beaches.  The first few will be busy, but keep going and eventually you will find an empty or near empty spot.  BUT do take everything with you as no beach bars, sunbeds, toilets for miles.  

Enjoy.

If you define the south being Morro Jable and Costa Calma the nude beaches start just past Playa Cebada and go up past Costa Calma. That's 20+km of walking if you want. All more or less nude friendly.

There are wide sections with loungers near the lighthouse. There are narrow sections with nothing but cliff walls.

Playa Mal Nombre is totally different in every way to the playa del matorral near the lighthouse.  Those are just the common relatively easy sections. Playa de Cofete  you could take the bus to. There are other almost unknown beaches in the opposite direction.

There is always  a risk of gawkers but reality is even on the textile sections 99% of people will ignore you. I've seen bare skin on Cebada which is the town beach. Not just first thing when the hotels above there people stroll down to skinny dip. You shouldn't really go naked on Cebada but if it's windy people do.

Do you need more than 20km of beaches you can walk to?

I agree with Will, if you have a car base yourself in Morro Jable, it is a lot quieter down south compared to Corralejo with many AI & HB hotels, you don’t have the same number of bars & restaurants but if it’s beaches you want…..

Just to comment on your age, you are at the younger end but when in Corralejo last October it was a bit of a mix, there was a Scottish couple in their 20’s on the sun loungers just south of the Riu Oliva Beach every day we were there along with couples with pre teen kids, single males & females 20’s, couple of same sex couples / friends so as I say, bit of a mix, really all depends on who’s on the island at the same time as you. We are in our 50’s but in our heads we are about 28 so if you hear someone speaking English don’t be afraid to say hello, you can always move along, space isn’t an issue , I’d talk to anyone, much to my wife’s annoyance sometimes  Smile

As regards the attention you got in Maspalomas, I’d be very surprised if you got similar in Fuerteventura 

Are you looking at hotels or self catering? If hotels put Iberostar Fuerteventura into google maps, there is a string of hotels northwards from there, you’ll be walking out straight onto clothing optional beaches both left & right from all of them, at least one also has naturist pool / facilities 

Morro Jable in October for us, can’t wait

Can you please explain where is Playa Cebada? I have been on all those beaches but don't remember ever seeing that name, and cannot find it in Google Maps or Google Earth.
