This islet just north of Fuerteventura comprises a large uninhabited nature preserve. Playa de la Concha is the main beach, well known for its clears waters. This is a picturesque mini-paradise for fishermen, sun-lovers and adventurers. The last human inhabitants were the lighthouse keeper and his family.

There are no tourist attractions but there is a cafe and lots of mesmerising views of the sea.4.The mystery of Cofete Beach
A heavenly beach in a very remote corner, an abandoned mansion, railway tracks going nowhere, a little airstrip. Cofete has all the ingredients for legends and stories to emerge. Gustav Winter, a German engineer, bought that land. Rumours and stories about him spread quickly. Why did he buy that part of Jandía? It remains a mystery up to our days. Come and see for yourself.5.Betancuria, the former capital
A visit to this old town in the western part of the island is a must. Fascinating architecture lines the cobbled streets. During fiesta season, ensembles of local musicians fill the streets with traditional music.This village comes to life during the day and it goes quiet at night. The tourists fill up the craft shops, cafes and restaurants. Visit Santa María de Betancúria Church, San Buenaventura monastery, The Museum of Sacred Art or simply enjoy the views from the two great viewpoints - Mirador Morro Velosa and Mirador Corrales de Guize.
