Captivating Costa Calma holidays 2020
Home to just under 6,000 people is the popular beach holiday resort town of Costa Calma. This portion of the Canary Islands is lucky to be positioned right on the coast. Its white sandy beaches extend for a mile and the small town centre can be explored by walking, making a 2020 holiday in Costa Calma suitable for tourists who want to uncover this Fuerteventura resort on foot.
The name of this idyllic town translates to ‘quiet coast’, due to the fact its bay is wave-free as a result of the offshore winds. Placid waters and powdery sand make Costa Calma holidays ideal for families with young children.
A profusion of hotels, apartments, and villas are sprinkled around Fuerteventura's second-biggest vacation destination. Most accommodation options are designed with a pool. Based just a short drive away are the holiday towns of La Pared, El Cotillo, and Gran Tarajal.

Things to do in Costa Calma
As a calm and laid-back resort, you’ll find more going on outside of the resort than within the resort itself. Nevertheless, you can satisfy the shopper within by enjoying a retail splurge at the many shopping centres located around the town, like Sotavento Shopping Centre. Souvenirs can be acquired from the stalls on the beachfront, where you can tuck into tapas whilst watching the windsurfers in action.
A wind park can be found behind the town and it’s a fantastic place for a photo opportunity. Spend your Sundays at the weekly market or if you fancy it, travel to one of the nearby resorts. A 20-mile journey to Morro Jable will be well worth it, if you have the time, because it’s home to an ancient lighthouse, turtle nursery, and Jandia Natural Park.
Costa Calma's main attraction is, of course, the beach. A 1.5-kilometre stretch of white sand attracts families, couples and people of all ages. Beach facilities are available, and if you get hungry or thirsty during your sunbathing session, walk a few steps to the eateries positioned on the banks behind the beach.
Fuerteventura has no shortage of beaches. In fact, the island has over 150 beautiful bays, so if you want a change of scenery, you will be spoilt for choice. Caleta de Fuste entices families with 800 metres of coastline, while Corralejo has more of a tropical vibe. Sunbathe and gaze at the Isla de Lobos, or head to one of the other recommended beaches, like the Sotavento Islands and Cofete. If you want to see your own lunch being caught, discover the darker sands of Gran Tarajal.
