Beaches in Betancuria

The Fuerteventura beaches in the Municipality of Betancuria are located in the middle of the west coastof the island.  Betancuria covers only a small area, which is mainly mountainous, so the length of the coast is short, and access is limited.

The main beaches in Betancuria are:

Valle de Santa Iñes

The Playa de Valle is at the end of the road that goes from Valle de Santa Iñes to Agua Verdes on the coast.  It is a black sand beach which is 500 metres long.  At the end of the tarmac road, access is then off-road, either into the valley or along the cliff top.


El Junquillo

To the north of Agua Verdes is the El Junquillo beach, which is very isolated and can only be reached by a 4x4 vehicle.  It is 400km long and is made up of black sand.
