Holidays in Jandia

Jandia began its life as a small, fishing village and has since grown into one of Fuerteventura’s most sought-after holiday destinations. However, don’t take your Jandia holidays expecting a skyline made up of high-rise hotels; this resort has retained much of its original character, particularly in the Old Town. The beach is spectacular, sporting two miles of sugar-coloured, powder-soft sands, gently lapped by the Atlantic Ocean and overlooked by a pretty promenade. For a day out, the Jandia Natural Park is a short drive away, giving you the opportunity to see some of the island’s wildest and most stunning scenery.

21°C - 29°C °C

By UK standards, the year splits into two seasons, dispensing with autumn and winter and diving straight into spring and summer. Summer really makes its mark between April and October, with temperatures tapping at the thirties, while the spring months between November and March enjoy less blistering temperatures in the low to mid-twenties.

Four and a half hours.

Flights to Jandia land at Puerto del Rosario International Airport and is just over an hour’s drive from the resort. There are buses available from the airport.

The marine life has been a major draw for divers-in-the-know for years. However, if getting wet isn’t on your list of things to do on your Jandia holidays, you can still get up-close-and-personal with the denizens of the deep, courtesy of the Subcat submarine. Should that sound a little too challenging, you can always charter a catamaran and enjoy a few hours on the water, rather than under it!

The beaches are simply stunning and it’s hard to pick the cream of the crop. However, if you’d like something away from the hotels and tourists, then head to Sotavento Beach. Incredibly, despite its breathtaking beauty, this beach is rarely crowded and offers a tranquil walk back to the resort. Look out for the beach’s lagoon, which floods on a regular basis, providing unique opportunities for swimming and scuba diving.

If you can drag yourself away from the sun-bleached beach, a trip to the Jandia Natural Park is a great way to spend a day. Wild and unkempt, it’s a veritable oasis against Fuerteventura’s sand-dune skyline, acting as host to a stunning array of plants and wildlife. To enjoy the park to the fullest, it’s worth renting a car, as there are miles to explore. You’ll even find a couple of quiet, secluded beaches, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip, before getting on with the job of seeing the sights.

Like most of the Spanish resorts, you can find food from virtually every corner of the globe. However, if you’ve had your fill of pizzas or are chock-full of Chinese food, don’t pass up the opportunity to sample to some of the local fare. You can buy tapas from beach-side stalls or in the restaurants tucked away in the narrower streets in town. Make some room for goat stews, outstanding seafood, and local accompaniments, such as wrinkled potatoes (papas arrugadas) and a hot, chilli sauce (mojo), all washed down with local beer or wine.

JANDIA IS BEST FOR...

Families: With two miles of unspoilt beach in which to top up your tan, clear, shallow waters and regular lifeguard patrols, the beach is ideal for families who want to enjoy some quality time together, as part of their Jandia holidays.

Water-sports: Windsurfing is big business here and there are courses available for everyone, from nervous newbies to die-hard wave-hoppers.

Couples: The promenade has a distinctly romantic appeal, offering quiet bars and superb views of the sea; perfect for watching the sun set, while enjoying a relaxing drink.


FAST FACTS

Language: Spanish is the primary language spoken in Jandia, but you’ll find that most of the shop-owners and hotel staff have a good command of English. However, it’s worth mucking in and bandying some of the local lingo about, as it’s often appreciated, even if your pronunciation is dreadful!

Currency: The currency used is the Euro.

Local Time: There is no time difference between Jandia Fuerteventura and the UK.

Fly to: Puerto del Rosario is the international airport serving flights to Jandia. It’s approximately 71km from the resort.

Flight time from UK: Approximately four and a half hours.

Tourist Information: Further tourist information for Jandia holidays can be found here.

Visas and Health: Before you travel, click here for recommendations and advice on visas and health for your Jandia holidays.

Weather and Climate: Thanks to Fuerteventura’s close proximity to the coast of Africa, this resort enjoys good weather, all year round. For the higher temperatures, book your Jandia holidays between July and August, when you can look forward to the mercury hovering around a sweltering 29°C. If you prefer something a little cooler, January and February weigh in at around 21°C.


GETTING AROUND...

By bus: The bus services have undergone a major overhaul and they’re now the most cost-effective way of getting around. Comfortable, clean and punctual, you can buy discount travel cards from the drivers, which knock 30% off the cost of your journey: ideal if you’re in for a week of sightseeing. There are 16 bus routes, which travel right across the whole island, giving you greater opportunity to see the sites you want to.

By taxi: Taxis are in plentiful supply and can either be pre-booked or flagged from the roadside. Unfortunately, their cost doesn’t make them the best bet for long-distance travel, but they come into their own for short trips or late-night drop-offs.

By ferry: If you fancy a leisurely cruise to the quaint little town of Moro Jable, the regular ferries are a great way to fully appreciate the coastline. From Moro Jable, you can catch connecting ferries to other Canarian islands, such as Tenerife and Gran Canaria. However, these aren’t a good idea if you’re in a rush! Trips can take up to two hours, but they are considered to be the fastest way to slow down!


EVENTS...

Carnival: Head over to Moro Jable in March and you’ll be in time for the local carnival. Expect lavish floats, traditional dancing, outlandish costumes, the smells of sizzling meats and bucket-loads of sangria. Cap it all off with a fantastic firework display and the party’s only just begun!

Octopus Festival: September sees the local fishermen turn their attentions to these little suckers and their little suckers! While you’ll be able to sample a variety of delicious and delicate dishes, featuring everyone’s favourite cephalopod, you’ll also see some truly bizarre celebrations, such as octopus racing and a chase between the two local lighthouses.
