Morro Jable, Matorral Beach
Morro Jable lies in the south of Fuerteventura, 90km from the Airport. A new section of road was opened in September 2005 and this reduced the transfer times by about ten minutes, as the new road is both straight and level, and replaces a narrower windier coastal road in Jandia.
If you find yourself out for a drive in a hire car it is worth taking the more scenic route as it allows the driver to take in the views, while still concentrating on the road.
This large, modern, quiet and incredibly clean resort was originally a tiny fishing village. The bulk of the resort now stretches along the coast from the 'Old Town' northwards along a Palm-tree lined Avenue with Hotels and shops on one side and the Beach on the other.
The original fishing village part of Morro Jable (the area around Plazoleta de Cirilo Lopez) has many Fish Restaurants and Cafés and is right on the water's edge. The Centro Comercial de Jandia on the main Avenue has several Bars and Discos, though these can also be very quiet especially in low season.
There are two very pleasant beaches in Morro Jable, the 'Playa de la Cebada' in the Old Town is quite sheltered and the sea is normally very calm here (although beware the sudden gusts of wind that come down from the Mountains) and the shallow waters mean that the water temperatures are very pleasant and safe for bathing.
At the western edge of Morro Jable is a modern Harbour where you can find the probably best Fish Restaurant in town and several companies offering Marine Excursions and Ferry Services to Las Palmas in Gran Canaria.
