Morro Jable Sights and Excursions

Morro Jable is the southernmost town of Fuerteventura and was able to preserve its original charm as a typical Canarian fishing village as much as possible. The borders with neighboring Jandía Playa are fluid. Therfore, Morro Jable is a welcome contrast to the otherwise very touristy face of the southeast coast. The village was built around 1900 in the seclusion of the Jandía peninsula, to which there was no access road until 1970. The people were self-sufficient and operated fishing and goat farming. Since then the the place has grown naturally, so that there are sights in Morro Jable that originate from the time of its foundation.

The massif of the Jandía Natural Park rises behind Morro Jable with the highest mountain of Fuerteventura, the Pico de la Zarza (807 meters). On its other side there are beautiful sandy beaches. Embedded in this scenery this place also shows a very romantic side. Morro Jable in the neighborhood of Jandía Playa has developed to a rather tranquil travel destination over the years.

The Old Town of Morro Jable

Nothing more than 200 souls lived in Morro Jable in 1970. Back then the town consisted only of today's historic center. At present, more than 3,000 people have their homes here. Nevertheless, the old town of Morro Jable has not lost little of its original flair. Its center is the Piazza de Pescadores. From there, several narrow streets lead in all directions. You stroll past white houses and some restaurants that offer Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine and, above all, freshly caught fish on the menu. In the small tourist shops of the two shopping streets in the old town you can buy the usual tourist souvenirs, but also some handmade ones.

The Port of Morro Jable

The port of Morro Jable was built in 1980. It connects Fuerteventura to the neighboring islands of Gran Canaria and Tenerife with ferries. Its marina offers a place to moor for at least 290 boats with a maximum draft of 5 and a maximum length of 35 meters. The harbor is lined with shops, restaurants and bars. From here you can enjoy a stunning view over the pier and the Atlantic Ocean.

These are treated and released again after recovery. On the other hand, young animals are raised here, which are to be resettled in the Canary Islands. On the 800 square meters of land there are 12 tanks for stranded turtles and 5 tanks for the breeding. The facility has a free information center where you can see some of these animals and learn how the installation works.
