Cofete Sunset 4x4 Safari with Meal in Punta de Jandia

The volcanic landscapes of Fuerteventura's mountainous interior are scaled from the seemingly endless coastline is this late afternoon off-road safari to Cofete. Juan Carlos, one of our local guides, says, ‘Cofete was so removed from civilisation that it spawned a wartime spy mystery – and countless novels – centred on the enigmatic Villa Winter. Was it a transmission centre for U-boats? A hideout for secret agents? A ratline staging post? A venue for hedonistic parties? The legend only grows with each passing year.'You'll first head into Fuerteventura's central mountains, where cloud-wreathed slopes plunge down to endless, deserted beaches. The most eye-catching is Cofete beach, which clocks in at almost 14km. The spray from waves creates an almost ever-present haze over the shoreline. Heading off-road onto hairpin tracks, you'll bump around the Mars-like landscapes around Pico de la Zarza, one of the island's highest volcanic peaks. Here, you'll enjoy panoramic views over the buffeted west coast before dropping down to Cofete, a ramshackle hamlet.This mostly abandoned village is home to the mysterious Villa Winter, which is rumoured to have been a Nazi hideout after World War II. Next, it's off to Punta de Jandia at Fuerteventura's southern tip. Hopefully, you can enjoy a sunset over the lighthouse and Atlantic, before a meal and glass of wine at one of the few restaurants found in this remote part of the island. You'll then wind your way back to your hotel under the starlit sky.

El Cotillo Sunset 4x4 Safari in Fuerteventura with Bayuyo Volcano

And to top it all, your evening is rounded off with the chance to see an epic sunset. What's more, you'll do it in a small group of no more than 16 guests. Juan Carlos, one of our local guides, says, ‘Right from the go, it's a full-throttle adventure as you rumble through the Bayuyo badlands. With their scorched earth, dusty trails and volcanoes, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were on Mars.'We'll hook inland to the Bayuyo volcanic zone, zooming down dirt tracks and past craters on lava-scarred fields. There's a photo stop at the Bayuyo volcano itself, where with a bit of luck you might meet the friendly local chipmunks. ‘Bring some nuts,' advises Juan Carlos. We'll then make a beeline for Majanicho, a ramshackle hamlet huddled in a sheltered cove. From here, we'll follow the coastline on sandy trails until reaching the fishing village of El Cotillo. The waves have made it something of a mecca for surfers.Unlike the coastlines to its north and south, El Cotillo beach is black volcanic sand. You'll get to visit the three-in-one lighthouse and the Toston tower for some snaps. There's also free time to grab a bite to eat or poke around the village. It's then on to a viewpoint to watch the sun sink into the Atlantic while you sip on a chilled cava. Then drive back under the star-lit sky is the icing on the cake.

Plan your trip to Fuerteventura

When is the best time to visit Fuerteventura?

Thanks to its unique climate, Fuerteventura is an excellent holiday destination all year round. Even during the coldest months (January and February), temperatures range between 15°C and 22°C. This is why it is such a popular destination during the winter, especially in the Christmas period. The climate is also heavily influenced by the trade winds, especially during the spring and summer months. This period is ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing. The high season is in July and August, so if you don't want to give up the beach, but prefer to avoid the crowds, consider travelling to Fuerteventura in May and June, or in September, October and November.

How many days should you spend in Fuerteventura?

To get the most out of your holiday in Fuerteventura, you should ideally stay 5 to 7 days. This way, as well as relaxing on the beach, you'll have time to explore the island's natural parks, the incredible volcanic landscapes and take an adventurous excursion - Don't forget that Lobos Island and Lanzarote are a stone's throw away! If you like water sports, especially windsurfing or kitesurfing, then you'll feel at home in Fuerteventura, and you might want to stay a few days longer.

Where are Fuerteventura's best beaches?

Fuerteventura coastlines give a variety of different beaches, with options for all tastes. Choosing the best beaches on the island is a complicated task, but undoubtedly, Cofete Beach and Sotavento Beach deserve a place on the podium. The former is a spectacular 12 km long wild beach located in the north of the Jandia peninsula, while the latter is a huge expanse of white sand bathed by shallow waters, ideal for beginners in windsurfing. La Concha beach, very close to the fishing village of El Cotillo, offers a quiet and beautiful environment, while Playa del Castillo, in Caleta de Fuste, is also a marvel.
