Fuerteventura

"It's not fair," said our twelve-year-old daughter one day. "The boys [her two older brothers] have both had barbecues for their birthdays. I want a barbecue for my birthday."

 

And so it was that we had our first winter holiday, staying at Los Delphines - N28.7295° W13.8605° - on the edge of Corralejo in the north of the island in the first two weeks of February. It was very strange to experience weather that we would expect on a good English summer's day, in the winter and nearly every day.

 

We had booked a two-bedroomed self-catering apartment and when we arrived we discovered that it was on the first floor. While exploring the apartment we found that a door in one bedroom led out on to a six hundred square foot rooftop terrace which had no other access - it was ours. It was surrounded by a low wall that wasn't quite high enough to screen us when walking about, but did allow us to sit down, unwrap our sarongs and sunbathe on the sunbeds provided. On Google Earth the terrace can be seen at N28.72992° W13.86035°.

While staying at Corralejo, we went on an organised trip to Sotovento which is part of the twelve-mile beach that runs down the south coast of the Jandia peninsula, in the south of the island, from Costa Calma to Morro del Jable. Here we found no corrals and it was quite breezy.

 

We were able to walk a short distance away from the main party and strip off, only dressing to return for the barbecue and, later, to return to Corralejo.

Although there are no designated naturist beaches on Fuerteventura, all beaches that are away from a town can usually be used for nude sunbathing and swimming. At Corralejo, most of the beach between the edge of the town and the two large hotels about a mile south was used by naturists. Here people had built circular corrals using rocks scavenged from the surrounding sands. These corrals gave each group a base and they protected sunbathers from the stiff breezes that seem to blow continuously.

 

One day we hired a car and explored the interior of the island. We visited Betancuria - N28.4246° W14.0576° - the old capital of the island, and the lace-making shop at Lajares - N28.6797° W13.9412°.

 

On our daughter's birthday we joined an organised day out to the beach at Sotovento - see below - where she did get her birthday barbecue.
