    A great naturist beach
    Sotavento Beach stretches for miles and has several access points from the FV2. We visited four parts of the beach and were pleased that each time we were able to strip off and enjoy nude sunbathing and swimming. We also enjoyed several nude strolls along the beach.

    Beautiful place for a Beach hike
    Went for a hike from the south point of the Laguna to north point and back. Walked along the sea side (low tide) north and along the land side South. Beautiful hike, appr. 9 km long. Beautiful Beach with perfect water for a swim (it was a day with not much wind)

    Calm tranquil beach backed by hotels
    Has always been a mystery to us so decided to spend some time exploring when we visited the south of the island. Really lovely stretch of beach with many a hotel and apartment block towards the back of the beach. Found a couple of small shopping centres but couldnt locate lots of bars and restaurants. I'm guessing its a more all-inclusive crowd that enjoy the resort. It was nice for a couple of hours with the beach really being the star.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stunning beach with beautiful clear sea - excellent for kite/wind surfers, experienced paddle boarders - or simple bathing - obviously have to contend with wind but worth the experience. If spending the day don’t expect great facilities - toilets nr windsurfing booth are available but take own paper - and zero cafe options so take own food and perhaps water for simple rinse after bathing. Would definitely recommend visit but as with some other Fuereventura beaches don’t expect facilities, and expect both nudist and clothed sunbathers.

The best place in fuerteventura for me. So unspoiled and you can walk for miles as well as swim in the crystal clear water

Just beautiful. Perfect sand, perfect turquoise sea. Nudist and clothed, to be warned. You can walk for miles if you wish.

The Beach is just amazing! You can walk a Long distance, Watch kite and Wind surfers and relax. Even if it’s very sunny, it doesn’t feel that hot because of the ongoing wind.

Stunning beach but unfortunately the wind was like a gale chucking huge amounts of sand all over your body felt like small bits of glass hitting you pretty stressful and also cold due to the wind despite sun being out. Couldn’t wait to get to the car also saw a couple having sex in a windbreak openly which was pretty vile.
Much preferred the Illetes in Formentera now there was a beach!!!!

This beach took my breath away, it is stunning. Rivals anything we've seen in the Caribbean. Lots of wind sports to keep you entertained.

We walked here from our hotel and were blown away by how beautiful this beach is. The kite surfers provided an amazingly colourful spectacle.
