Morro Jable, the fishing village of Jandia

Morro Jable is one of the most colourful and lively towns in Jandia. Full of charm and with many of its traditional buildings intact, it offers visitors the chance to immerse in the most authentic of the islands peninsula, despite the large number of tourists that visit it every year.

Town Morro Jable

Originally, Morro Jable was a small town of just 200 people engaged in fishing and sea related jobs and craftsmanship. Access to it was very difficult as the road connections to this part of the peninsula where not properly developed until the 80‘s.

It has 35 km of coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches of Fuerteventura: beaches to relax, to surf, to play with children… It also has a port from where you can still watch the local fishermen work or walk along the coast.

Shops, restaurants of all kinds, bars and terraces crowd the centre of Morro Jable and make it a bustling place to buy a nice souvenir of Jandia or simply sit and enjoy a glass of wine and some papas arrugas (wrinkled potatoes).

There are a large number of hotels but it has not spoilt the beauty of the coast. Quite the opposite, Morro Jable and Playa de Jandia are an example of the integration of landscapes that allow the coexistence of tourist economic development with the preservation of the environment.

Beach Morro Jable

The tourist in the area is mainly German and choosing accommodation is simple: there are hotels of all categories and for all types of travellers. Some of the most prominent are found in Playa de Jandia and managed by Spanish hotel chains, as is the case with Iberostar Hotels & Resorts:

· Hotel Iberostar Fuerteventura Palace

· Hotel Iberostar Playa Gaviotas

· Hotel Iberostar Playa Gaviotas Park
