The route to the reefs in the south of Fuerteventura starts in Morro Jable. Morro Jable is the last large town in the south of the island. It is signposted on the motorway from the airport. So if you don't live directly in Morro Jable, take the motorway south to Morro Jable.
At the end, the motorway leads to a roundabout and the road behind it becomes single-lane. It descends in serpentines to the beach of Jandia. After another roundabout, the road becomes two lanes again and the beach promenade of Jandia begins, surrounded by palm trees. You just follow this road to its end. Now the road leads over a hill that separates Jandia from Morro Jable. You continue to follow the road until you reach another large roundabout in the direction of the port (Spanish: Muelle).
The road continues above the village for a while and then goes downhill again towards the harbour. Shortly before the harbour, opposite many small colourful terraced houses, there is a turn-off to the right. A sign tells you that this is the way to the cemetery (Spanish: cementerio). Turn right here in the direction of the cemetery. After a few more hairpin bends above the harbour of Morro Jable, you will reach the cemetery. This is where the long, unpaved gravel road begins, which also leads to Cofete.
Most car rental companies are not liable for damages if the cars are driven on gravel roads. Towing services for flat tyres can quickly become quite expensive. Those who drive this track with a "normal" car should therefore be especially careful. Although the track is renewed at least once a year, there are many passages with large holes and bumps. Ideally, you should rent an off-road vehicle with four-wheel drive. Most car rental companies also offer simple four-wheel drive vehicles.
The gravel road now winds for about 16 kilometres past the majestic mountains of the southwestern tip of Fuerteventura. At the halfway point, you will pass an old tomato farm. When you pass the next mountain flank, the view of the waves in the south of the island opens up for the first time. From here, you can easily see the whitecaps of the waves on the reefs in the south of Fuerteventura.
