Morro Jable

At the south of the island lies the major resort of Morro Jable. From its beginnings as a small fishing village, Morro Jable is now a major holiday venue extremely popular among German holidaymakers.

Thousands of tourists a year are attracted by its miles of golden beaches, a clear blue sea plus its array of shops, bars and restaurants mostly spread out along the main road.

The resort is 60 miles from the airport. It was once only reached by a rough road but in 1982, a new main road was built. Even so, it remained very twisty towards the latter part of the journey – as names like “The Bend with a Bad Name” bear witness to. However, all that changed late 2006 with the opening of a new expressway between Pecenescal and Bayvelo which, making use of long elevated stretches between mountains, shaves around 20 minutes off the journey.

Some of the beaches here are among the most beautiful in the Canary Islands. Water sports enthusiasts are well catered for with everything from windsurfing to jet skiing. Despite the influx of tourism, the old village still retains its charm and there is a quaint harbour in the west where you can watch local fishermen go about their daily business. The jet foil for Gran Canaria also leaves from Morro Jable. The town very much caters for the German market – most menus are in German and even road signs.

Morro Jable Market

Market in Morro Jable is held every Monday and Thursday 09.00 – 14.00. Next to Cosmo Centre – Avendia del Saladar, opposite Robinson Club in Jandia.

How to get to Morro Jable

If you are driving down there, don’t be confused by the fact that Morro Jable also goes under the name of Jandia. Only a few buses a day take the coastal route via the airport and Caleta de Fuste down to Morro Jable – the route 10 from Puerto del Rosario. Buses taking the inland route from Puerto del Rosario (the number 1) leave at regular intervals.

You can also take a taxi but be prepared to pay something over 100 euro.

The beach at Morro Jable is part of a stretch of natural white sandy beaches while the beach stretching north of the lighthouse is used more by naturists, that to the south is used more by those who prefer to keep some clothes on. On the beach to the south of the lighthouse you can charter a yacht for sailing and there are plans to build a new marina.

Morro Jable gets its name from the original French invaders, Jable being a corruption of the word sand in French, sable.

Sunbathing on one of the many great beaches, as well as indulging in the  shopping or sports opportunities, not to mention island hopping, all these turn the days spent on Fuerteventura into what might easily be called a dream vacation.

However, in order to delineate the perfect holiday, you must pay attention to what nightlife is about in Fuerteventura. The island has a wealth of venues dedicated to night activities, but the best nightlife hotspots in Fuerteventrua are the resorts of Corralejo, Caleta de Fuste and Morro Jable. These three resorts come to life at night. Here you’ll find everything from piano, dance or cocktail bars to lively discos that throb until breakfast time. All of the resorts around the island do have their fair share of clubs and bars, however these can be pretty quiet especially if your holiday is in low-season. That’s the reason why we recomend the three biggest nightlife resorts – Caleta, Corralejo and Morro Jable.

Corralejo is the most generous scene of intense night-time buzz, with so many bars and restaurants to keep you busy in the manner specific to your profile. Live music, late snacks, plenty of drinking, all these are possible in Corralejo. Centro Comercial Atlantico (Avenida del General Franco) is the main nightlife hotspot, but there are plenty of other open-air bars and restaurants to entertain tourists at night time. You should definitely check the Rock Island Bar, as well as Rosie O’Grady’s for their specific atmosphere.

Caleta de Fuste falls nothing short of a nightlife hotspot. However, you can easily notice the relaxed and rather serene dash of the nightlife scene in Caleta de Fuste, when compared, for instance, with Corralejo. The main commercial and shopping centres are the ones around which most of the nightlife venues of this resort gravitate. A reasonably lively resort with decent nocturnal buzz no one can seriously complain of.

Morro Jable is extremely popular with German tourists. Sometimes, this feature is mirrored by the specificity of nightlife venues, though these are as miscellaneous as to suits all tastes, regardless of nationality. The Centro Comercial de Jandia and the Plazoleta de Cirilo Lopez are the main hotspots in terms of nighttime leisure.
