El Cotillo – Piedra Playa is a beautiful sandy beach just South of El Cotillo village on the North-Eastern part of Fuerteventura, just 10 minutes away from Lajares. You can reach the spot easily by car (but watch out if you are on rented car, sometimes the rental company can charge you extra money if they found damages from off-road riding).
This surf spot is essentially a beach break, so if you are looking to surf your surf white waves or even green waves it can be just right. Sandy bottom and waves all year make it very accessible.
When to surf here. The answer is one always: low tide! If you go there in high tide most of the time the waves is breaking directly at the entrance in the water, making it impossible to surf. It can be quite powerful sometime, so make sure that the swell is under a meter.
In addition to this, it is important to stay in the designated beach area, as there is a separate one for kiters, windsurfers or swimmers. Beach guard is on duty and usually there are no strong currents.

Playa de El Moro is a stunning white sandy beach located in Natural Park of Dunes of Corralejo, around 15 minutes away from Lajares, on the North-eastern part of Fuerteventura.
The spot works consistently with Norther or Eastern wind swells. It’s therefore quite reliable when summer trade winds are on, from June to September and or Eastern winds kick in.
It’s a beach break, with some rock on both right side and left side, visible in low tide.
Beginners or intermediate surfers will love this spot when conditions are not too big. You will not need to paddle too much and colours are beautiful, waves are generally less powerful than in Cotillo and the best time to visit is in medium to low tide.
Lifeguard is available but be careful with currents: sometimes can be really strong women especially on both sides of the beach. It is a friendly place also for families, who will love their time at the beach sheltered from the winds.
Punta Blanca is a beautiful wild spot of the North Shore, close to Cotillo, right after Punta Gorda.

Secondly, on good days it can get pretty big, but on average you can always choose where to surf and how big you want the waves. Because of its popularity, it can get pretty crowded, anyway you should visit this spot in medium tides, not too low and not too high.
Thirdly, there are lefts and rights, which makes it a good to train both sides, for regular or goofy riders.
There is a small sandy access on the left of the beach, that’s the only place you should use, especially if you don’t have shoes. Above all, families or your group of friends will love the surf vibes and relaxed atmosphere at the beach, where people chill and have good time together. It’s a rocky spot with nice sandy beach, therefore bring your water shoes if you are a bit clumsy or want extra protection!
