The Saladar of Jandia in Fuerteventura, is a natural gem which has recently been restored and today surrounds one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, the famous Jandia beach, also known as Playa del Matorral.
Belonging to the town of Pájara and located next to the touristic town of Morro Jable, the Saladar de Jandia stands next to the Natural Park of Jandia and the protected area to the south of the island of Fuerteventura.
This is a natural area of salt ponds that are created by the effects of tides, in the middle of an area of native vegetation, formed mostly from bushes that give it its name. The work carried out to recuperate, that after much strenuous work, was completed in the late 2,000, have allowed to separate the beach from the road. This has won some important neutral space that will benefit the conservation of vegetation and sand without external changes except for the natural effects of winds and tides.
The view is that of a rare area, with the blue of the Atlantic as a back view, the luminous stripe of sand and the large surface of scrubland on which stands the lighthouse of Morro Jable, the most important of the Jandia Peninsula.
To visit the Saladar of Jandia the best is to reserve a hotel in Playa Jandia. All around the area, there are a number of accommodations, among them the hotels with spa in Playa del Matorral and some of the best resorts for couples in Jandia.
However, if you prefer, you can make the trip by car from any point in Fuerteventura. Parking is not easy in this area, but if you do not mind walking a bit, it should not be a problem.
The best time to visit the saline grounds of Jandia is the evening, when the sun goes down and the show of lights in tonalities of gold, red and orange combine with the nature of this unique location in Fuerteventura.
