Costa Calma, located in the south of Fuerteventura within the municipality of Pájara, is the gateway to the famous Playas de Jandía. It is an area of peace and tranquility where it is possible to combine a traditional holiday experience with a wide range of activities and services.
Costa Calma does not have a real city centre, apart from a short stretch of Calle Punta de los molinillos where there are some shops, a small supermarket, bars and restaurants.
In general, it is the hotels that offer various activities in the area such as water sports or other pastimes to be carried out between the beach and the hotel.
Of course there are buses to Jandia, Morro Jable or Puerto del Rosario for example.
The beaches of Costa Calma
Sotavento beach, one of the most beautiful in Fuerteventura and, I can’t hide it, one of my favorites together with Playa de Cofete.
A sand barrier 100 and 300 meters away from the shore creates a three kilometer long lagoon, perfect for windsurf or kite surf lovers.
It is no coincidence that Sotavento is one of the perfect beaches to practice and learn to kitesurf and windsurf.
In July on this beach, you can attend the Kitesurfing and Windsurfing World Championships.
Playa Esmeralda and Playa de Costa Calma
Playa Esmeralda is smaller than playa de Costa Calma, but is perfect for spending the day as it has far fewer people. In addition, it has a privileged situation and is ideal for children to enjoy.
In Playa Esmeralda you can find services such as toilets, showers, taps to wash your feet at the exit and a security service.
Also, at the end of the beach there is a beach bar.
To access there is a dirt road that leads to a few tens of meters from the beach.
Costa Calma beach is located near La Lajita and is a tourist beach with two kilometers of white sand and turquoise waters. It is protected from the wind by several hotels and apartments.
