Morro Jable Tourism Free Article (see Terms)
Morro Jable is a holiday town located in the south of Fuerteventura Island. The resort actually has two sections, Jandia, which is a modern vacation resort and the fishing port of Morro Jable. Both of which converge into each other, but are together often called Jandia by most of the holiday and travel brochures. To confuse things further, the peninsular on which the resort is located is also called Jandia.

Morro Jable is now 1 of the largest resorts on Fuerteventura, popular with both German and UK visitors. It is most well known for its magnificent beaches of fine golden sand which run for miles. The length of beach near to the old lighthouse is the Playa de Matorral and is very suitable for younger children. Between the Playa de Matorral and the road is a protected natural area of salt marshes.

One of the many Morro Jable attractions is the quite excellent selection of water sports in Morro Jable, such as windsurfing, yacht sailing and jetskiing. One of the favourite excursions is the catamaran sailing tour round the splendid Jandia headland. A short drive from the town is the 2500 foot, Pico de Zarza, the highest peak on Fuerteventura. Many visitors try to ascend the mountain and the superb vistas from the peak certainly make it worthwhile, but you should be well prepared with food, lots of water and suncream if you wish to have a try.

The main thoroughfare through the town is the Avenida del Saladar, which runs parallel to the coast, with a selection of bars, pavement cafes and restaurants. There are several commercial centres in Morro Jable, the largest being the Cosmo Centro which is the towns focal point, as well as having excellent shopping, the centre also has the Thursday market and is the home to the Aloe Vera centre. This is an excellent place to visit if you are suffering from sunburn, the oils, that are produced from local crops, can really alleviate the soreness.

The Morro Jable nightlife takes place in the bars around the Cosmo Centre, but the action is fairly low level. The area by the old port is packed with Spanish restaurants offering locally caught fish. There are a good selection of restaurants along the esplanade serving a variety of fare, including Chinese, International, Italian and Canarian.

The excellent 18 hole Jandia Golf Club is located about 3 miles (or nearly 5 km) from the town. This par 72 golf course was designed by Ron Kirby and opened in early 2007 and benefits from a beautiful natural setting. As it is fairly difficult, it is recommended for the better players.

Morro Jable is over 55 miles (nearly 90 km) from Fuerteventura international airport. There are regular bus services from the town to the airport and Caleta de Fuste. The tourism office is found in the Cosmo Centro Comercial, where you can get maps and details about various excursions. There are ferries from Morro Jable to either Las Palmas de Gran Canaria or Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
