Hi All :-)

We have decided, after 6 visits to the same hotel on Enquinzo Beach,  to be brave and change hotels / area !

We are staying at the Iberostar Palace this visit, and are wondering if anyone has visited this area and what its like for naturists, We are used to laying on a lounger in a mainly naturist area on Esquinzo beach (by Emillios bar) and was wondering if there is anything simular near this hotel.

 I HATE laying on the sand, and would prefer not to be amoungst mainly "textiled"  people on any lounger areas, as I know this can upset others !

Is there anything simular to Enquinzo beach here on this section of  Jandia beach?

Thanks for any info you can pass on :-)

I know how you feel about laying on the sand, neither me or the mrs likes roughing it on Godforsaken stretches of beach. We like the beach near Emillios for the very reason you state. Got two weeks booked at the start of Feb, & are keeping our fingers crossed as someone posted that the sand was washed away in October. (It does happen) Can't help you with other locations I'm afraid

Hi Magoo,

The beach was indeed washed away :-( Luckily we knew beforehand and took some sea shoes ! No way could you get into the sea at low tide otherwise -apart from walking approx 100yrs to the left, where there was a 3 ft wide "window" of sand..where people where queueing up to get into the sea  :P

This is one of the reasons we have changed hotels, I just want soft sand and nice sea, not to go rock climbing bare footed  to have a paddle lol

Have a great time, we're not back until May :-(

Yes, part of Esmeralda Beach was 80% naturist in october, dunno about prices, because i love the warm sand, not interested in any kind of bed :)
Maybe Butihondo Beach is a good option, too. It's an easy walk from Esquinzo and past the stone area you may find sandy beach and some loungers.

It's been a few years since I've been to the south of the island but, unless things have changed dramatically, you should find that the sunbeds near the Fuerteventura Palace will be occupied mostly by textiles but if you walk a few hundred metres towards the lighthouse you will find some sets of sunbeds where most people are nude.  However this stretch of beach can be more exposed to the wind than the area near Emilio's.

The bad news is that Esquinzo beach is still in a bad way (Feb 16th) The small 12" ledge in the sand is now about 9ft exposing lots of stones. However on our last day, the sand had started to cover them. I have some photos if I can remember how to post them.
The whole of the coast to the North has taken a pounding, we tried to walk up the beach but gave up as the tide no longer leaves enough walkable sand.

They are still there, but the front row is on the edge.

Reviving an old thread, has anybody up-to-date info?

I've just found out that I can redeem BA Avios for stays at Iberostar hotels (via the Iberia website and only by phone to Spain).

I had not considered this hotel, but if OK would like to reduce our moountain of Avios.

Thanks.

Hi Magoo

Thank you for the update on Esquinzo beach. We have stayed there twice and the beach is the very reason we have booked again for this September. From your photos, it looks very similar to the first time we went. Last we were there, last June it looked so different with lots more sand. We were not sure if the extra sand was brought in manually or by the tide.

Thanks again

Jim

Just back from a week in Jandia. The beach and sunbeds in front and to the immediate south of the Iberostar are basically textile. However the beach is so wide that we have seen some naturists right at the back (no sunbeds though) against the fencing which protects the nature reserve area.
However if you keep walking further south the textile sunbeds peter out and there is a large stretch of beach unblemished by sunbeds or many people, where you can be naked; and of course just beyond the lighthouse there are 2 areas of sunbeds used exclusively by naturists. If you don't fancy the long walk along the beach to the lighthouse you can go by the footpath from the hotel along the main road then use the boardwalk to the lighthouse beach.
Enjoy.
ps we didn't go round to Esquinzo this time so no updates on that beach I'm afraid.

Apologies, it will teach me to read the date of the post in future before replying. Thanks for pointing it out.
