Morro Jable Vacation Guide

Morro Jable is one of the biggest areas for German tourists on the island.  So you will see a lot of signs in German as well as in Spanish.   Morro Jable has something for everyone. The miles of golden beaches and clear blue seas, shops, bars and restaurants attract thousands of tourists each year.  Despite all the tourism the old village still remains intact and there is a quaint harbor in the west of the town which is used by local fishermen and yachtsmen and you can still escape the hustle and bustle should you wish to take a leisurely walk along the promenade or check out one of the local beaches.  Some of the beaches here are the longest and most beautiful in the Canary Islands stretching 35km and there’s plenty to do for the water sports enthusiast from jet skiing to windsurfing.  Its also possible to take a boat over to the neighboring island of Gran Canaria.  Our Morro Jable Vacation Guide will give you all you need to plan a beautiful beach vacation here.  Visit all the beautiful beaches of Fuerteventura here.

    Interesting read, definitely somewhere I can see myself going for vacation. I see you touched on how beautiful the beach is, however can the beach be enjoyed by different age groups? Is nudity something you can expect to see regularly at the beach? Overall though would you recommend this place for young adults?

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      This beach is for everyone, couples and families. You will not see nudity here. There are beaches for just that, I did not include any in my review though 🙂 But yes, awesome place for young adults.

    A great article which evoked fond memories of my first overseas holidays way back in 1966 to Tenerife in the Canary Islands! I still remember sunbathing on dark grey volcanic beach sand and sipping wine from a bottle of Marsala! Yes I would love to revisit the islands this time to Fuerteventura and Morro Jable looks to be an ideal place to stay. Thank you very much for bringing back memories of a beautiful holiday destination

    Another beautiful place. I always tell everyone I meet how nice it is to travel. There is so much beauty everywhere so limiting ourselves to one place we miss out. I have never heard of this place but I will be adding it to my list. You covered this so so much detail. This post provides everything I would want when traveling.
    I love beaches, love good food and places that welcome tourist with open arms. The picture you selected show how unique this place is I will be suggesting this to my wife. We travel at least once a year out of the country and have some amazing places to go. This may very well become one of them. I know it’s hard with so many variations and peoples preference but do you have a rough estimate of just price for hotel, flight and one week, or package deals. Would help understand cost and how to plan.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Ok, I checked as if I were going from Dallas,TX. Which might be more expensive, if I am farther away than you. If you go to this link and put in your dates and city you are flying from, then you can get a good price estimate. For me, from Texas, for one week with hotel and airfare it was 2200.00. The price will vary depending on what city you are flying from. I know you and your wife would absolutely love it there. It is beautiful and the people are very friendly.

    I love to travel very much.
    The Canarias are on my “places to visit” list.
    I have been to Spain twice and I was captivated by its beautiful nature. I visited Madrid and Barcelona several years ago.

    This place looks amazing and the weather year round is oh so perfect. Your site is making wish I lived somewhere a lot warmer. I love the beach, but find it hard to justify a trip because of the large crowds that beaches draw in. Do you have any recommendations in North America that are less populated, but don’t break the bank either?

      I am going to stick with Florida, there are a lot of beaches that just don’t get that crowded. I have been to Treasure Island, St. Pete Beach, and the Destin area all during summer months and they are not bad. Anytime but the end of May thru the beginning of June will be the busiest. What is nice about Florida is that it is very inexpensive to visit, especially if you stay on the Gulf of Mexico side. The East coast of Florida is considerably more expensive. Texas beaches are also pretty in expensive, but I stay away during summer months again, as they are busy.

    Leahrea, I’ve never been to the Canary Islands, let alone to Morro Jable, but your detailed description of the facilities has made it a very appealing holiday destination for us. In an ideal world, it would be lovely to fly to Fuerteventura and then use the catamaran for the transfer to Morro Jable – that would be my favourite transport from the main island, as I imagine you would get a feel of the lovely sea and of the dramatic coastal and island views straightaway. In an ideal world, I said. Because unfortunately my husband does not fly, and it would be a long swim from the Portuguese coast all the way to the islands (!!!). Unless you tell me that there is a ferry line joining Portugal to Canary Islands? It would be interesting to know.
    Thank you Leahrae, most interesting post!!

    My word – I’ve been there! We used to have a time share on Fuerteventura and have visited Morro Jable many times. I love the island and the area you have reviewed is amazing. Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The last time we flew out of the airport there, my 3 year old daughter fell in the play area inside departures just as we were called for our flight – turned out she fractured her arm and we had something of an uncomfortable flight home with a very unhappy girl! Don’t think the other passengers were too impressed either! Have you been there too?

      Oh I bet they weren’t LOL but poor little girl. Depending on where home is, it might have been a long flight. Took me 24 hours to get there, but to Tenerife which is just as beautiful! But you are right, the Canary Islands, and of course Fuerteventura is wonderful. Morro Jable has an beautifule beach!

      Not a lot as it is still a fishing village. It is very quiet and quaint. You would want to see the lighthouse though, which is situated at the edge of the beach. Yes, a lot of Europeans travel to the Canary Islands. Thanks for reading the Morro Jable Vacation Guide.
