Accessed via a short drive down a dilapidated track, with craggy rock dropping dramatically down to demerara-sugar sands, this isolated beach is our pick for soul-searing sunsets. Chuck some beers in a cooler, before navigating the single, steep staircase down the black cli s that flank the water.
Mirador Astronómico de Sicasumbre
Fuerteventura’s lunar-like landscapes are crisscrossed with over 21 hiking trails that skirt rocky monoliths, biscuit-crumb valleys and bone-dry plains, all singing with the ghosts of local folklore and indigenous myths. Feel the power of sacred mountain Tindaya or make your way up the Mirador Astronómico de Sicasumbre for an magical encounter with the Milky Way.
Surfers might have co-opted El Cotillo, thanks to the fishing village’s unbeatable o shore swells, but the town’s mobile hamlet of campers is happy sticking to its slow- is-better ethos. Behind windswept, whitewashed alleys hide relaxed seafood cafés and artisan-craft studios. Head to Rocky Point or Piedra Playa to catch some waves.
