Cofete Sunset 4x4 Safari with Meal in Punta de Jandia
Activities

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

This exclusive off-road experience takes you through northern Fuerteventura's volcanic landscapes to wave-washed fishing villages. 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.

Introducing Fuerteventura

The second largest of the Canaries, Fuerteventura is the ideal destination for beach buffs and nature fans. It boasts no fewer than 150km of sandy beaches, which includes everything from long sweeps of sand to tucked-away coves. Plus, the landscapes here are so diverse they could be used as the set of a sci-fi movie – expect sand dunes, palm-studded oases and 24 volcanoes. Elsewhere, there are lots of colonial villages dotted throughout the island that are ripe for exploring.

Top six things to do in Fuerteventura

1. Explore Jandía Natural Park and Corralejo Natural Park

Covering the island’s southernmost tip, Jandía Natural Park offers heaps of wave-washed beaches that are hemmed in by a dramatic ridgeline. It’s almost as if Mother Nature had 4x4 safaris in mind when she created it. The abandoned Villa Winter and the island’s highest point, Pico de la Zarza, are the ideal places to stop and take some photos of the postcard-ready scenery.

The dunes of the Corralejo Natural Park are the largest in the Canary archipelago and are home to endemic animal and plant species that you can't see anywhere else, including endangered birds and beetles that burrow under the sand. The park’s southern limit is marked by the Mars-like Roja volcano. Both natural parks are well worth a day trip.

2. Head to Lobos Island

Just minutes north of Fuerteventura, the uninhabited island of Lobos has all the essentials for a fun-filled day- trip. This little gem offers plenty of watersports opportunities. Put on your snorkel and swim alongside groupers, damselfish, lizard fish, parrot fish, and octopuses – plus much more. To visit Lobos Island, you’ll need to book an excursion at least five days in advance. It’s a very popular day-trip destination, so we recommend booking early to make sure you don’t miss out.

3. Try your hand at some watersports

With a mostly unspoilt coastline that’s surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, there’s an abundance of water activities to try out on Fuerteventura. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a diving or snorkelling excursion is a must. Expert guides will take you underwater, where you can see fish, rays and even, with a little luck, seahorses. Catamaran trips and dolphin-watching outings are also on the cards.

4. Stroll around Salinas del Carmen

A popular attraction on Fuerteventura is the Salinas del Carmen, the only still- functioning saltworks on the island. It’s located on the east coast, near Antigua, and includes a warehouse, merchant’s house, the remains of the old quay and a museum. During a visit, you can find out how important the salt industry has been for Fuerteventura and if you feel like getting your hands dirty, you can even be a salt worker for a day.

5. Tuck in to traditional Canarian cuisine

Fuerteventura’s food scene is considered among the most authentic in the Canary Islands. Majorero cheese is particularly popular, and is made from the milk of majorero goats, which are native to the island. For traditional restaurants, you’ll want to head to historic Betancuria or the fishing village of Ajuy, where you can sample some of the freshest fish available.

6. Tick off Fuerteventura’s churches and windmills

Apart from the volcanoes, nothing better represents Fuerteventura than its picture-perfect collection of whitewashed churches and pockmarked windmills. The prettiest churches can be found in Antigua, Betancuria, La Oliva and Pajara, while the most photogenic windmills are in Puerto Lajas, Villaverde and Llanos de la Concepción. Built to mill the local gofio flour in the traditionally windy parts of Fuerteventura, many have been completely restored in recent years.
