Jandía, a real paradise for family holidays

One of the top European tourist destinations in 2015 is the Jandía peninsula, a place with wonderful nature where we find some of the best restaurants, bars, beaches and rel=”nofollow”family hotels in Fuerteventura. It belongs to Pájara municipality and is located in the most southern part of the island. It stands out for its long and quiet beaches, ideal for those who travel with children.

Although Jandía also offers services for holidays as a couple, with friends and active tourism, it is renowned for being the most important meeting point of family tourists in Fuerteventura. Jandía is perfect for families in search of quietness and fun, so they can enjoy this destination without too many journeys and with specialized accommodation.

Family friendly hotels located in this part of Fuerteventura are a place of reference all around the world, they are pioneers in including new services for kids without leaving behind the parent’s needs of rest and entertainment.

Morro Jable always boasts a cosy ambience, since it is one of the most visited villages in the island. Likewise, you can find art exhibitions, fairs, markets, live performances for children in the middle of the street and night shows to have a good time as a couple while kids rest at the hotel under the care of the hotel instructors.
