“Wonderful and rugged”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

Having travelled quite a way along a rough dirt track road we were pleased we didn't turn around as we did think of doing. The sea here is really like being as close to nature as possible. We loved it. Do drive to the end of the road. You will not be disappointed.

“Great beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

Great and beatifull beach!
Visited there by cykling from Morro Jable, this made it bit challenging to go up and down the mountain to reach Cofete.
Also goid to note that it is always very windy out there!

“Amazing off road trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

From Morro Jable you follow a gravel road in direction of th lighthouse of Puerto de la Cruz. I would recommend to make a short photo stop there, then drive back the same track for 10 km and take on the left another track going up into the mountains. On the top, before goimg down again, is a viewpoint with spectaculat views down on the beach of Cofete and their huge waves. For those suffering from Vertigo, like me, it's time to drive back.

One advice: if you have planned to make this trip, please rent the adapted car, means a SUV, at least, the tracks being sometimes very steep.

“Gorgeous landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

If you are planning on hiring a car on your trip, a visit here is a must. Although the roads arent for the faint hearted the views make it all worth it. And take an apple or something to feed the over friendly donkeys randomly walking about.

“Amazing landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

If you go to Fuerteventura and meet Jandia - YOU HAVE TO see Cofete!
Really really amazing beautiful place. Wild lonely picturesque beach with great waves and sand.
Great view opens from the road when you on the highest level of the road while driving to Cofete.
Stop to make pictures.

Accessible by any car.
No amenities there. Take water/food with you if you want to spend time there.
