The east coast of Fuerteventura's southern peninsula begins at Costa Calma and ends at the lighthouse in Jandia. The stretch of beach between the Jandia lighthouse and Morro Jable already points south and therefore to the south coast of the island. There are several fine beaches and small bays along these 20 kilometres. The motorway runs parallel to the coast and there are several descents that take you to the water.
In the desert-like area between La Pared and Costa Calma, there is only one other exit besides the one to Costa Calma, which leads to the large tidal lagoon. Further south of the lagoon, the mountains of Fuerteventura's southern peninsula begin. From here there is a country road that winds in serpentines along the east coast. If you want to discover the many small beaches and beautiful bays of the east coast, you should change from the motorway to the country road.
From the approx. 15 kilometre long country road, there are various junctions to the beach sections and bays of the southern east coast of Fuerteventura. You can see many of the waves on the east coast from the elevated road. Some of the turn-offs to the beach are unpaved. Most of these dirt roads are not very long. Nevertheless, you should drive carefully on them. Many car rental companies exclude damage that happens on unpaved roads from the renter's insurance coverage.
To get directly to the Esquinzo surf spot, drive the last few metres on a gravel road. Alternatively, you can park in the village of Esquinzo and walk to the beach. If you continue on the country road, you will drive the last kilometres to Jandia on the motorway again. The motorway ends at a roundabout with sculptures of small children in the middle. Here there is another turn-off to the beach. If you continue to follow the road, you will come to Jandia. Waves break on different parts of the beach. The best known is directly in front of the Jandia lighthouse and is called "El Pozo". You can easily find a parking place here.
