Travel Inspirations - Costa Calma

If you fancy a long stretch of golden beaches with lots of sandy spaces to sunbathing on and a non-rowdy resort to spend your well-deserved holiday on Fuerteventura, then look no further than Costa Calma. This purpose-built resort was constructed in the 1970’s around a small the village and along its 2km of golden sandy beaches. The surrounding barren and oasis-like landscapes adds to the “in the middle of nowhere” feel to Costa Calma. Hotels and apartment blocks are built along the golden sandy beaches, meaning there’s no real center, dispersing the holiday makers along the length of the resort. Apart from its long beaches nestling in the calm corner of the coast, there are no particular interesting sights or cultural attractions to be found here on Costa Calma. There are however, a number of interesting viewpoints (miradors) nearby offering stunning views of the coast and the inland. The family-friendly holiday resort also marks the beginning of the longest and most remote beaches of Fuerteventura - Playas de Sotaventos. This beautiful part of the island with fine white sand beaches and constant winds is the mecca for kitesurfer and windsurfers alike. Take up a kitesurfing course or venture around the Jandia  peninsular on an quad bike or buggy safari adventure. Not far away is Oasis Park, an animal park cum botanical garden where you and the little ones can easily spend the whole day in. Costa Calma, literally translated as “Calm Coast” offers just the tranquility you need for your vacation. History and development Costa Calma was a small village named Cañada del Rio prior to its tourism development in the 70’s. Traces of the village are hardly seen today. The local authority has asserted care however in ensuring the the oasis-like nature of the area is maintained, with trees and green palmy areas allocated along the lengthy resort. This helps preserving the existing ecosystem, floras and faunas in the area with several species of hoopoes can still be spotted.

Although Costa Calma was a small village before the bulldozer of tourism transformed it into a purpose-built resort, not many of the traces in the past persist today. What can be seen today are arrays of hotels and serviced apartments fringing the 1.5 miles long fine sand beaches along with palm trees and cactuses. Built slightly on the elevated part of the sandy bays, these buildings offers good views to the sea and the desert-like landscapes inland and wine turbines renewable energy.  Miradors (View points) If you have a car, why not go for a short ride exploring the Jandia peninsular where Costa Calma belonged. There are a number of access to view-points along the Fv-617 roads towards Pajara offering impressive views over the beaches and mountainous landscapes inland.

Little ones build sand castle or splashing water in the sheltered part of the beach, it is a calm (as the name suggests) and relaxing resort ideal for elderlies and families.
