The sperm whale skeleton of Jandia is the photo motif of many postcards. This sperm whale was stranded near Matas Blancas on the Costa Calma in 2005 and is 15 metres long in total. The whale skeleton was set up in the course of the project "Way of the Marine Mammals" (Spanish: "Senda de los Cetáceos") by the Society for the Study of Canary Islands Marine Mammals.
The aim of the initiative, which has been established in 2000, is to exhibit the skeletons of about a dozen whales and dolphins at prominent locations on Fuerteventura. Among others, the skeleton of the 19-metre-long fin whale in Salinas del Carmen, south of the airport, has been realised so far.
In the trees at the small playground in front of the sperm whale skeleton live reintroduced, colourful canaries. The lively birds are easily attracted by sunflower seeds and sometimes even land on your outstretched hand to get the food.
The most famous sight among surfers is probably the surf spot "Cruz Roja" on the beach in front of the whale skeleton in Jandia. With the right wave direction and height, the waves here can run just as well as the " Sandy Pointbreaks" on the famous Australian Gold Coast.
