Costa Calma / Top Destinations

Just as the name might suggest, Costa Calma is, as compared to other tourist hotspots in Fuerteventura, a rather peaceful and relaxing vacation destination. It pertains to the municipality of Pajara, and it is located some 60 or so kilometers south of the Fuerteventura Airport. The resort is highly frequented by a miscellaneous flow of tourists, both in respect to nationality and budget.

Costa Calma is not so much about nightlife buzz, since that would contrast with the already ascertained reputation of the resort. However, a trip to Morro Jable might solve the tourists’ nocturnal leisure needs.

Shopping too is scarce in Costa Calma, but there is one notable market held here each Sunday. Mercadillo de Costa Calma is, next to the shopping opportunities yielded by Morro Jable, the most significant highlight in this respect.

The 2 kilometers long beach pertaining to Costa Calma is the undisputed tourist hotspot in this resort. The beach is reasonably developed, and nudists can easily head for the nearby stretches of sand in order to sunbathe naked, since Costa Calma does not necessarily encourage this habit.

Tennis, diving, as well as surfing and the like are possible in Costa Calma, which is always nice to know for tourists who intend to do more than sunbathing during their stay in Fuerteventura.

For extensive explorations, visitors can resort to the car rental companies operating in Costa Calma. Fuerteventura is, as compared to its Canary counterparts, as wholesome as it gets, at least as bikers are concerned. The one bike rental company in Costa Calma is the main enabler of biking in and around Costa Calma.

While searching out the surroundings of Costa Calma, tourist might just as well pay a visit to La Lajita Oasis Park, which is located only a short distance from the resort. Such trips are always rewarding, both as leisure opportunity and as instructive experience.

Last but not least, newcomers can always resort to the services and information provided by the tourist information office in Costa Calma.
