One of the views you shouldn’t miss is the one you get of el Faro del Matorral. If you stay in one of our hotels in Morro Jable, you will be able to see it during the sunrise and enjoy one of the most romantic views at El Matorral beach.
This lighthouse was built at the end of the 20th century with the aim of informing the sailors about the little depth of the water. Nowadays it is a must see in Morro Jable and the best spot to take a picture as a souvenir of your visit to Fuerteventura.
The port of Morro Jable is located at the south of the peninsula of Jandia. From there you can see the closest island Gran Canaria.

The wonderful landscape of the two beaches divided by the Atlantic Ocean is one of the views that you cannot miss in Morro Jable.
Close to the port you will find some of the most typical and exquisite restaurants out of the whole Fuerteventura. The different high seas species of fish are directly brought from this harbour, so the most popular fresh fish dishes come from here.
Jandia Natural Park is an animal sanctuary and vegetal reservoir located at the south of the peninsula. It is about fifteen thousand hectares long. It has beaches, mountains, vegetal species and fauna. This is the perfect place to visit in Morro Jable, where you can find incredible natural attractions and enjoy activities such as hiking.
Among its mountains, the highest one is Pico de la Zarza, which is about 800 meters high. There, you can do excursions and small trips. You will also find some of the native plants and animals from the island which are strictly protected. Another interesting place to visit in Morro Jable is Cofete, due to the incredible length of this beach.
Close to Cofete shore you will find one of the most emblematic buildings of Jandia and Fuerteventura: Villa Winter. This is a two-storey building with a tower of the 20th century. There are many legends about this house whose name comes from the engineer that built it.
Another evidence of the environmental importance of Morro Jable can be found at Centro de Recuperación y Conservación de Tortugas Marinas in Morro Jable. This is an animal reserve that takes care of sea turtles that have been harmed by ships, human waste or depredators. There, if you book a guided tour, you will meet some of the sea turtles they take care of and know more about them.
We recommend you to take your camera because this is one of the best spots to take pictures of the most characteristic animal from Fuerteventura. You can also take advantage of this opportunity and teach your children how to take care and preserve the natural environment of these animals.
